I think the magnetic shades would be preferable to Winnebago's side shades. Before I purchased my Solera I test drove the Winnebago and it's built in shades. I found their frame to be annoyingly noisy when I drove it. I didn't like that at all. I found on the internet the silver metallic windshield and matching side window sun shades that are made for Sprinters. They are inexpensive and quick to throw on and off.

Maybe Brian or Josh could clearify for us when those exciting new features take place? My forester should be online / offline 7/20 - 7/21...
Thank you!

Sorry, I don't really have anything to do with it. I only chimed in on the shades, because we looked at them too, but we were already running the logo'd heat shields. While I don't think the heat shields look as nice, they have the added benefit of solar reflection. I've asked the guy doing the magnetic shades to see if they can make one side reflective.

I agree with you. The other issue is that it takes up the space on the door frame and we had some people say they use that as an arm rest. Remis prevents that.

Sounds like these shades are completely standalone? If so, would they be available from either FR or "the guy" for us retro owners?

Thanks for any info!

Sorry for the delay. I had to wait for Kary on this.

As we get closer to our Fall Show we will make more information available on the new features.

On the Foresters there is a multiplex system that will allow you to control your slide room, lights, generator, etc. from your smart phone.

The Waster Master will be available on both Floor plans.

The Remi shades will replace the cab-over current we used to have. You will be able to use the swivel seats at all times and not have to worry about people seeing into your motorhome.

I've attached a photo of the waste master system. It's a little rough but you can see where it clips on, the ribs of the hose, and the valve to cut flow for clean and easy storage.
