Front window cover

Instead of the interior privacy curtain, I would like to cover the front window, giving access to the cockpit. Sunseeker 2016, 2650. Any recommendation w easy installation?

A relatively in expensive way is a sun shield to cover the inside of the windshield and Reflectix insulation cut to fit in the groove inside the side windows. Works quite well on my class C. Camping World has covers that go on the outside of the windshield and side windows.

Expensive, but works well. Especially in the sun. I think it is well worth it.

I can't remember where or who posted this but I bought boards at WalMart and traced the curves with a coffee can lid. Just make sure not to cut them too small or they will not stay in place. Really helps keeping the heat and light out. Cheapest mod yet.

I think you want a cover that is one piece and covers the side windows and windshield. Each end has a lip that fits in top corner of each door with a magnet in each lower corner. These work great. They keep the sun from heating up the cab area and retain the inside air temp. They are available from Camping World, Amazon and other RV venders. This cover is outside the cab and not inside like sunshields witch still allow intrusion of heat in.

Yup, that's who it was. Mind is a terrible thing.

ADCO makes the cover you want. They make them for all model chassis.
