And the problems with using cheap, bubble shades you can make out of material at HD for $50, which mimic car windshield sun shades are many. The only advantage is price.
So, how much is the Magne shade for the front windshield? ...And does it work to keep heat inside the RV during the winter? (I'm guessing NOT!)
The exterior Magna shade and the interior MCD shades are not mutually exclusive. Many people have both.
The MCD interior windshield shade is primarily a privacy shade. It will block the light, but it blocks it on the inside, and allows heat to build up inside.
The Magna shade’s exterior application means the heat never gets into the coach in the first place. And you can see through the Magna shade during the daytime, (though it’s filtered light), and no one can see in. At night, it’s the reverse, hence why one would want the MCD shade inside.
