Window tinting

Anyone ever get their widows in their RV tinted? Thinking about getting all the back windows limo tinted. Figure it would darken camper and stop some sun and heat.

I tinted my coach windows with 95% UV protection. Helped with heat and privacy.

I bought a 100ft roll of 20% and am doing mine right now. I did a test tint on one of the side windows to look at optical quality, and how much light comes in / out.

I'm satisfied with the test results so am doing the rest of the windows over the next couple weekends.

That's the very first thing we did to ours. The darkest on the back and side windows and legal on the driver's and passenger doors. More privacy and sun block.
