Default Regular or Super slider Koger Sunshade

I have an RV9 slider. My wife wants me to order the Koger Sunshade. After yesterdayís flight with strong sun I agree. We need a sunshade. Is there a preference as to which size, the Regular or the Super?
Iím leaning towards the Super. Any drawbacks due to extra width and length? What is the preferred method of installation, adhesive or screws?
Comments from users would be appreciated.
Thanks

I had the super size one on my first -7 but actually found it to be too big... Iím going with the regular size one on my second -7 build.

Sun in the 2 place RVs is a massive problem. In my opinion a Koger sunshade is mandatory equipment. Vans should supply them with the kit. I have the Super Size model on my RV7A and it is just a fantastic product. I donít know why anyone would want anything smaller with less sun coverage.

Agree 100%. I had the large size in my RV6A.

+1 on this. I have the super size in my 9A and love it. Vans really should include this in the finish kit.

How is the clown 9 doing Al? Sounds like you are enjoying it. If I recall, Bill R gave you some 9 time? I'm hoping to get a little as well as I'm headed to SC in early June. He gave me a good reference for BBQ as well.

Cheers,

Ed
