2016 Ford E450 Sun Shield?

Does anyone know where we could find a reflective foil-type sun shield for our 2016 Ford E450 Sunseeker? Would like one that also covers the door windows.

I have looked online but cannot find. Saw a quilted foil shield inside a Sprinter while camping in Colorado. Would like something similar, if possible.

Saw some for older Ford models but not a 2016 450.

Thanks.

Lowes or Home Depot, buy a roll of Reflectix and make your own. Easy to do, and enough on a roll to make shades for the coach windows when stored. Will drop the interior temps by 10-15 degrees.

Personally I went with a windshield cover that goes over the side windows as well. Takes only a minutes to install and remove. Givers you more interior space and you do not need to use the cheap privacy curtain.
About $45 on Amazon.

Thanks to everyone for the replies. I went with the inside reflective from Motorsports.

We had an outside windshield cover on our previous Class B van. We had to make sure that it was dry and dirt free before we put it away. Also, I had difficulty finding one of those that would fit a 2016 Ford e450.

Liked the inside curtain that came with the rig but wanted something that would maybe keep the RV cooler.

Ordered the one from Motorsports.

Thanks again.

I ordered custom reflective covers from HeatShield.com for my Sprinter's side windows and SUV's side & rear windows. I already had them for my windshields, but this company makes them custom (and quickly) for your vehicles year & model.

Our 2014 Sun Seeker Class C has a cover that fits over the doors and the windshield and covers the wipers. It has corner pieces that fit over the doors to hold it when you close the doors and Velcro around the bottom under the mirrors. One nice feature is that it has flaps , with screens underneath on the windshield and the side doors that can be folded down to let some light in during the day, leave the side windows down and catch the breeze. and keep the bugs out.
White vinyl, sure saves the driver compartment from the sun and the windshield when parked from any rain.
Got it on Camping world

RIGHT ON grumpy,,, that is what I did !!!
I ended up using almost 2 rolls,,, I covered every thing,,, even the skylights,,, and a couple of weeks back I made a pic to fit MH door,,, it is heeled in with Velcro !!! All the other windows I first cut cardboard to fit,,, then covered it with Reflectix !!! These will also protect the shades !!!

We did this, very customized and use Velcro straps to roll it up small for storage. It's amazing how much the temp drops.

VERY NICE,,, how every I like to make things when ever I can !!!
For the windshield I had to take an old windshield shad that I had for my F-150 and add Reflectex to both sides,,, so it would complete cover the E-450 windshield !!! I really like not having to screw with the drapes !!!
As well as keeping the Sun & Heat out !!!
