For 1/5 th factory price I suspect they just ang free but just had to ask.
Thanks for the feedback.

No, they don't swing free. They have a metal frame that faces toward the window and expands as the shade goes down, much like one of those baby fences people put in doorways in the house. They do not travel in the groves that are in the post covers.

Yes, simular to that. You won't see it from the inside of the coach, though, if you install them properly. All the shades Shadepro has are for the left hand side, so the wires will be coming out of the left side on both of them. To hide the wires coming from the shade on the right you're probably going to have to route them thru the overhead cabinettes.

Ended up having the single night shade installed due to a mix up at the dealers. Will now look for a sunscreen to mount either on the inside or outside of front window.

Thank you Nemo. These sound very much like they would warrant further consideration. As others have so adeptly stated; the existing factory sunvisors are virtually useless as you cannot adjust them while driving. In fact , you cannot even reach them. Poor engineering or ill thought cost cutting?

After reading this thread when it started I decided to buy a set of the 43-inch wide visors from Shadepro on eBay a few weeks ago and was able to find the time to install this past weekend. Boy what a difference they make and for $73 each it was a steal. I searched around and most sites wanted $200 or more a piece for one visor.
I can't believe I went a year and half with the skimpy factory visors. The install was a breeze - yes they are both left-hand motors so I had to splice wires on one of the units in order to reach the remote control unit - but it was very easy. Wireless remote mounts anywhere you want on the dash and you are good to go.
If you don't have power visors, I strongly recommend getting a set of these before Shadepro runs out of inventory.

I also took the great advice on this forum and installed these automatic visors (agree with a previous post regarding having to bend yourself into a pretzel a few times under the dash tho!). They work great and I was able to do a clean install without any exposed wires. I also installed the new Clarion NX501 in dash GPS multimedia head unit along with some upgraded Alpine speakers. Ready to head out this weekend on maiden voyage of 2011! Cheers,

Hugh

Does anyone have pictures of the factory mounted shades done aftermarket? I was talking with the factory rep and he said I would have to replace the entire bulkhead to mount the shades. I guess from they factory they are recessed? It sounds like maybe some of you mounted them flush on the bulkhead and they work fine.... is that correct?

Thanks, Randy
