Typing on a cell phone IS always an error for me. I never thought of the magneshade being hung on the inside. As mentioned earlier about the local mounties finding an offense about blocking the window, has that ever been a problem for you?

Yeah, I wear a ball cap and hand it off the side but the glare inside is a real hassle.

Guys, If you're wondering about the interior window shades, do take a look at the magnashade.com website. The window shades are a new item in the past year and work very well. As suspected, they are inside and fasten with the magnets, same as the windshield. They are actually a 3-position window shade and only would restrict vision in the lowest position. I wear mine in the middle position when driving, with no restriction whatsoever.

If it's just the bright glare making seeing difficult: try a wide-brimmed hat, and some really good sunglasses.

You'll need a shade of some sort...
Magne Shade flip shades. Also had the windows tinted with ceramic tint problem solved.

We like them to help keep the coach cool in the summer and sun visors while driving.

Thanks Bruce and Kev, I looked at the website and will have to provide measurements for a quote on the Axis/Vegas. I'm definitely interested in both the windsheild cover and the flip shade.

I've think about ordering a custom sized roller solar shade (14% open) that provides partial coverage and still have unobstructed views of the mirrors.
Any thoughts?


Window Tint. They have really good tint now that is legal everywhere

Carl. Go to "Magnashade.com". I have these and we really like them. One of the other guys is sending the measurements to Roger, as coach brand/model is a bit different.

Many thanks to all of you, I ordered Magne Shade Flips Shades yesterday. A bit pricey at $350 delivered but my wife is well worth it. Being from the Philippines she likes to stay out of the sun and since when we leave for a trip we are traveling east and coming home we are traveling west, she is always in the sun. She likes to pull the curtain but on more the one occasion I needed to see out and couldn't.

FYI, If you are thinking of ordering, they have a long lead times.

Thanks again everybody! God Bless and Safe Travels.

Installed the flip shades last Tuesday before leaving for Palm Springs. They worked perfectly. In the half position they are the perfect height to keep most of the sun off while allowing me to still see the road and mirrors. They are not cheap but they work and are easy to install. While parked and in the lowered position you can see through them but still keep much of the heat out and allow you to keep windows open if you want. I like them!
