Window shades for Sprinter

I have a 2016 SunSeeker MBS. I have one of those funky curtains held on with Velcro to block out the morning light and keep people from looking in on us at night. This curtain is sort of OK but you have to crawl under it to access the cockpit if you need to get something. Has anyone seen some shades for the windshield and side windows that can be used for this purpose? I think some of the manufactures have built in shades that slide to cover up these windows. I wonder of Forest River has such an accessary.

We don't have a Sprinter... Ours is on a RAM ProMaster and got tired of putting up the curtain. So I went online and found a wraparound sunshade that I had to order from Europe for our rig. It looks a lot like this one for the Sprinter

There are other ones for the inside of the windows from WeatherTech or Amazon.

A company called Remis makes a really nice set. You can find them on Amazon.

I've used the Dash Designs retractable sun shade:
https://www.dashdesigns.com/p-37139-...ble-shade.html
It's not a blackout shade - some light filters in - and it leaves a few small spots around the edges open. But it's inexpensive (around $40) and very easy to use. I use it in conjunction with a couple of suction cup covers for the cab door windows, generally for short term (overnight) use.

I use an outside wraparound cover, which covers the windshield and both door windows, if I'm going to be parked at one location for a few days. But it's much more expensive...and much more cumbersome to deploy.

We block outside viewing several different ways. We have the outside wrap around but seldom us it. Typically, we put reflectix in the windows and also a expandable curtain rod across the rear of the cockpit with two curtains on it that can be opened in the middle for cockpit access.

We have an Adco window cover we use on the outside. It's not hard to put on and it's sturdy and blocks the view from the outside. We also bought a roll of reflector from Lowe's and cut pieces for our side Windows. We used superglue to attach magnets around the perimeter. This is great for use when it's parked in the heat. We leave them on when parked at home. We bought a folding refletix window cover for use inside.

Sun Shades

Go to Euro Camper on line. They have some great insulated shades that are designed for the Sprinter windshield and side door windows. Provide complete privacy and cut down the heat from sun quite a bit. Have had for three years and best investment by far.

I ordered the Remis shades on my 2018 Isata 3 as an option. Factory installed and work GREAT. Cover both side windows and the windshield. 2 minutes to block the front windows

X2 and the nice thing is that the entire cab area is open for storage while your camped as well as giving you complete privacy.

We have a windshield cover that we'd be willing to sell. We no longer have the Sprinter chassis and the cover doesn't work with our current motorhome. If interested at all, PM me and I'll send a photo, etc.
