      Vlbutler38 July 4, 2020 I got some insulation from rv store it looks like bubble wrap covered in silver. I cut it to fit windows and works great.

        Jese88 July 4, 2020 We thought about that but we would.have to take it out of the windows in the morning when our kiddo wakes up and wants to look out of the windows... I've thought about doing that on the windows that we dont use to look out (like in the bedroom) but not su...  more

        Vlbutler38 July 4, 2020 Got a 50ft roll for $25. And its easy to remove. We slide them next to the couch so we can find them. I use them in the bed room to make it dark in there since my husband is a day sleeper. Its made like bubble wrap so there is no ichy stuff at all.

        Jese88 July 4, 2020 That's good to know! I'll look into it! We currently have black towels over the mini blinds in the windows in the bedroom for blackout effect for kiddo's naptime (shes like a little bear cub it has to be dark and cool for her to take naps)

      Free to Explore July 4, 2020 We had ceramic tint added to both the vehicles and RV. Does a great job and comes in a few different darkness levels.

        Jese88 July 4, 2020 Did you take it to a shop to have it installed or is it a DIY thing? We are full timers and we'd like to DIY

      Silvergreen Sig July 4, 2020 If you have double pane windows, you may want to be careful with the choice of tint. Uneven heating of the interior and exterior glass can be expensive.

        Jese88 July 5, 2020 I was concerned about the windows cracking because I had read some reviews about Residential window films cracking with the heat blocking film so that's why I was asking if we should use auto tint instead of Residential film seeing as the auto tint is des...  more

        Silvergreen Sig July 5, 2020  Automotive tint is not recommended by the 'window industry', in fact it is a no no for flat glass. There are some tints specifically designed for them. We have factory tinted exterior glass and awnings, so no first hand experience. Reflective materi...  more

      Cinn July 4, 2020 It gets really hot inside my tiny rig, too, so I attach Reflectix with Velcro tabs on the windows on the sunny side, but it’s not fun sitting around in the dark! So, I was looking at this solution the other day online, and it looks like a great idea, but ...  more

        Jese88 July 5, 2020 I looked at those screens too.. my step mom has those on her rig... they are neat but we also have windows that "roll" open and sometimes we like to open the windows on a breezy day, so we would have to snap the screens off to open the windows.. eventual...  more

      TeamFoxy July 5, 2020 We had an awning installed over our drivers side slide windows. It helps a lot with the heat, we can still see out and its not so dark inside. If rainy, we can still have windows open. We do use reflectex inside the windshield, but only when in the sun an...  more

        Jese88 July 5, 2020 We considered the awning idea (we have an awning that was installed stock on the right side of the camper, we open it in the afternoon and it really helps with the afternoon sun) however my hubby decided it was more parts to break-down and more maintenanc...  more

      TheDelcoures July 5, 2020 At Lowe’s you can buy window film. Its not permanent but easy to install. You spray a solution in the window. Apply your film and use the tool provided to smooth out the bubbles, then cut off the excess.

        Jese88 July 5, 2020 We are using the auto tint, we noticed some of the reviews for the Residential film said it cracked windows which could be expensive to replace especially since we would have to pay for the windows and installation on site as we are full time long term campers...

      Silvergreen Sig July 5, 2020 Here is some random info from the internet, which as we know, never lies... Don’t use films with a solar-heat-absorption rate of 50 percent or higher. They are not safe for double-pane windows. The following product types should NOT b...  more

      RVkayaker July 10, 2020 I am trying perforated vinyl. You can see out with visibility reduced like a heavy tint yet it reduces heat gain through windows by 90%. This is peel and stick and comes in black or white. DIY easily, if not happy with it, just peel it back off! I am tr...  more
