Slim Shade RV Door Window

Has anyone installed one of these and do you like it. I can see the benefits of a shade keeping the sun out and the clear glass to see who's at the door and to enjoy the view.

We haven't gotten one yet, but want one. I'll be interested in hearing what you think of it, if you get one.

Here's an installation video we watched that convinced us it would be nice to have. It's really easy to install.

I have one and think itís one of my best mods. Being able to see out the door is great plus closing the shade 3/4 really cuts down on heat.

Was it really that easy to install? Thinking I might get two for my flagstaff.

Slim Shade RV Door Window - ORDERED

Well as soon as I watched the video that "wannabeowner" posted I was sold.... As he showed in his video ALOT of light does come in those windows and we all know the more light ... the more heat.....

We immediately went to CW online and placed the order.

Before this camping season we also got an Oxygenics Shower Head and it has also been a GREAT upgrade.

I LOVE the FRF GANG... their advice for modifications is spot on ... GREAT GROUP... SO HAPPY we bought our 3rd Flaggstaff TT and got hooked up with all these great camping minds.


Debbie

Hey, Debbie - I'm glad the video was helpful. My husband and I were talking about it earlier this week when we were camping. It was a bit too windy for our awning and the sun and heat were blazing through that window. I had to put Relfectix up. I'd much rather have that shade - and the view when the shade is up.

I look forward to hearing how the install goes!

I bought one and installed it on our door. We love it. Took the wife and I about 30 minutes to take original window out and put the slim shade in.

Installed one about a year ago. Very easy 30 minute install, and well worth the change. Very good mod, and it works!!!
Right now I think Tweetys has the best price, $88 bucks, free shipping, no tax.
