Summer comfort

Hi fellow Aframers
I have a question for y'all. During your summer time camping trips is anyone using on the inside windows relectix or car reflectors to keep the inside cooler? I've read where some have because with the windows they seem to generate more heat. Appreciate any answers and thank you.

You can also use automotive or home type window tinting. It isn't cheap but it covers the entire window and you do not need to put it up and take it down daily...

I haven't, even in the hot Texas sun along the Gulf Coast. The Cool Cat has ample BTUs to keep the interior cool. The windows are already so dark that tinting is not needed.

One of the things about out A-frames, is the low interior air volume relative to other types of campers. So, when I've been without electricity at the beach in the summer, good ventilation with open windows and the vent fan on, kept the interior temps near to the outside temps.
