Another Sun Shade idea for your motorhome has been featured in the website RVing. It claims, it helps much in reducing the heat inside the RV.

“Today, as the mid-day sun was starting to make the interior uncomfortable, I installed the reflective insulation on the inside of my windshield. The interior temperature dropped immediately! Down it came by at least a good 10 degrees. It’s probably more, but I’m being conservative…I’ve read that the effectiveness of using reflective bubble wrap insulation could be even better if it is applied to the outside of the windshield. But for me, placing it on the inside is easier, more secure, and does a remarkable job as it is.”
