Shade and awning advice

Hello all,

I'm looking to add awnings to my side windows and covers to my front windshield and drivers side window. We are full timing it until the house is built and we're tired of having to keep the nightshades down all the time to keep out the heat. Feels like we are living in a cave. I've seen some pics here that looked very nice and one, in particular, with window awnings that looked great but I can't find it now. Any pics, advice, links, and opinions would be great to have. Also, if the owner of the windows awnings pic could let me know where he got them from.

I ordered from advanced windshield reflector. Www.heatshieldstore.com. $35 for windshield and $35 for two side windows. Great heat reflection and privacy. There custom made for your vehicle. Click image for larger version

A & E Dometic and Carefree Of Colorado are the 2 that come to my mind. I installed the A & E window awnings on my unit. Very simple (good for me) and easy to do. Google for web sites. There are others I'm sure.

These are either Shade Pro or Magne Shade, which ever one is in Florida. I can't remember which place I got them. They work great and you can still see outside.

Had to do some digging but I found it, sorry for the misinformation.

Sorry, was thinking you were looking for something for a car/truck or SUV. I don't think this is what your looking for. :-)

Shades for front window and sides

We are hoping that Magnashade will be at Goshen Ralley in Aug. We have talked to them many times and decided that is what we are going to purchase , just go to Magnashade.com and you will see all the designs they have and by calling them they are very helpful .
