No Frontal Sunshades on 2016 Berkshire 38A!!



Picking up my new Berkshire 38A on March 29th. What's the deal with FR removing the screened sun shades in the front of the coach? None for the windshield, none for the passenger, none for the driver side. All three sides have the blackout shade, but no sun protection for the expensive dash vinyl, and the expensive DW. Haven't they heard of ultraviolet degradation (on the dash, not the wife)? Just saying...

BobbyJ

P.S. The dealer was not aware and is giving me a quote to add this item at settlement.

Believe this is one of the distinguishing factors between the Berk, XL & XLT builds

No huge loss in my opinion. We will use ours when on the road sometimes but when parked the external shade works 20X better. Get them for all the front windows. I even have them for the slide windows. Works great.

I personally love this feature while driving. Allows me to tailor the amount of incoming sun/glare. Sounds like a penny wise cost saving measure.

I was looking for an "eye" shade example. You say Glen has them. Glen who?

Looked for a link to a photo of one.

I like it. I was at a campground once and saw something similar that must have been done with a lazer light from inside, because it blinked at me

The outside shade is made by Magna Shade. They are held up with magnets and I have them because ladders and me are to much trouble. I had another brand that were great but I had to get the ladder out to put them on. That wouldn't do so I got these. I can put them up in two minutes from the ground by myself. Roger the owner will put any picture you want on the shade. Put your favorite beach picture or just some really cool eyes like Nathan did. They make shades for all the windows and have tire covers also.
