Windshield Privacy Shade?

Hi:

I'm a n00b on this forum. My wife and I are looking hard at a 24R to replace our 5er. We were looking at the Navions, but decided the Solera better meets our needs.

But we did like the pull-out privacy shades on the windshield, passenger, and driver's windows in the Navion. Has anyone come up with a neat solution to this for the Solera? Now that the seats swivel it would be nice not to cut off the front cab from the rest of the living space with the curtain from the top bunk.

TIA,

Greg

I ordered this windshield cover. It works great for privacy and protects against the Heat of the sun. It is magnetic and slide over the door tops for added security.

We went with the same windshield cover. Easy on, easy off.

Have these as well. Work great, and they roll up neatly for storage.

I actually ordered it without mirror, because I forgot about the real-view camera monitor. However, I just cut a small slit, and it fits flawlessly and is not tearing at all.

So ordering with mirror is what is needed.

I also have the shades that homeonwheels has (with mirror). I like them because they set up from inside the rig (no worries if it's raining). They also make the inside feel bigger because the cab isn't cut off from the rig with a curtain.
