Tinting Windows

We have a Forester 3011DS. Have noticed the windows do not have any tint on them and it gets very hot, as the shades are not dark enough to block out the heat.
We bought a lot of the reflective car shades and have them propped behind the shades when needed.
Has anyone had their windows tinted by a professional? Are there dealerships out there that do it for motorhomes? We are in the Texas area?

Where I live we have a great guy that tints windows. Me and my wife's family have had many of our vehicles done by him. Anyway my in laws wanted there camper done and he told them that the type glass used in campers shouldn't be tinted because the tint will not stick properly and over time will bubble or peal. I thought this was weird but he was the professional so I didn't argue.

So far no troubles

I figured someone would have had it done. I thought that might not be right. Maybe he had a bad experience. I would think it should still work all the same.

We will check into it has to be better than all the heat coming in. Our Mobile Suite Fifth wheel had tinted windows and it stayed so much cooler in there.
