Last night I installed the large Koger sun shade in my RV-12. Today was my first opportunity to try it out. Now I wonder how I ever got by without it. Even the taxi out was much less sweaty and uncomfortable. And, changing its position took close to zero effort... I'm sold.

Default Cheap sun shade 😊

I use poly foil ( like polyfilm buble pack with foil both sides ) from Menards and vinyl suction cups from hobby lobby. Just cut the poly blanket to shape and stick a few suction cups around the edges to secure. Take it off as soon as you want solar heat.
