Solera Front/Side Window Shades

Looking to buy the subject window shade screens and their seems to be a lot on the market that fit the Sprinter chassis and some that do not. I am interested in what the Solera Forum is using as they park their RV's. Appreciate your information to keep out the “Summer Heat Out.” Thanks.

I use a set of thermal shades which I purchased from eurocampers.com They attach to the inside of the windows and prevent excess heating and cooling and seem to fit very well. They are available with either suction cup fasteners or Velcro fasteners. Attach from the inside, so you don't have to go out in the rain to put them up.

We purchased this from campers world. It works like a charm, goes on in seconds and really keeps the heat out.

I purchased a set (3) of inside thermal reflective sunshades from high-end motorsports.com Lifetime warranty and MADE IN THE USA. They are easy to install from the inside just like the other person noted.

Bought mine also from high-end as well and for the price, very pleased.

We use the thermal ones as well and they are fantastic - one minute set up. The cover provided by FR wasn't much use keeping the light and heat out. Maybe FR will eventually include those - they are worth every penny.

I had originally considered ordering the Remis accordion-style shades for my Solera. These are apparently factory installed on the Winnebago View. But I wondered if they provided any thermal protection, and they apparently do not. Then I checked the latest price and they had gone from $720.00 to $935.00. Yeah, well the picture looked nice, but a +$200 increase in price - no thanks. Plus I read somewhere that installation on the side window made resting your arm there very uncomfortable!!! Sometimes even those of us without brains can make a no-brainer decision!!!

When we looked at the View we saw them and they did not convince us either. They do mot cut out all light as well - tried that.... They are a step up to the curtain - but nor much and not worse the price....

I checked out the high-end motor sports website and the sunshades appear to be for cars. Which ones did you order from there that fit so well?

You need to go to a Sprinter specific website that sells them can't remember their name.
