Overcab window covers

Our 2300 sits with the drivers side blistered by the summer Georgia sun. So we blocked out the rays for $2.00 less tax. At Wally world we bought two elmer's foam board (95109) that measures 30 x 20 at a buck each.

Using a square, razor knife, pencil, and the top of a plastic coffee can as the corner radius I cut the foam. No template needed when using the coffee lid. The window measures 30 x15, so after the one cut to make the sheet 30 x 15 I used the outside rim of the black plastic top (the largest diameter) to curve the corners.

It looks good, very functional, and cheap...

Yea, there are pictures in my album.....

Looks Good!

Heat has been TURN on & UP here this week in Atlanta.

Mid to upper 90's, heat index over 100 ~~~~

We have used the Aluminum(Silver) looking roll stuff, to do the main windows in the back, also foamed out the sky-lights for the most part.

Storage wise, we are fortunate to have a RV port, which keeps most of it out of direct sun. Had not thought about the cab windows, would probaly help with heat control in summer time use.

Later,
Markiemark

Hogula, My friend's Cedar Canyon Silverback 5th wheel has a "soft top" storm door. It is a thick clear vinyl in a frame like a screen and it fits inside of the screen door frame. it attaches with small clips that turn to take it on or off. You are always coming up with great ideas I thought you might like to work on thishttp://www.forestriverinc.com/product-details.aspx?LineID=207&Image=5033
here is a picture

Curtains

Yes we do. The panels fit between the window and the curtain that keeps the curtain from sun bleaching. For two bucks it is an easy fix.

Hoglou, I loved this idea so tried it today. Had to get the tan backed ones which were $2.97 but hey they match the decor! Thanks for the idea, it should really help to keep out the heat and the light.
