I think someone tried to get one of those for their Axis/Vegas and they didn't have a template for them. They may now...

That looks like a much easier way to apply the shade than our Sunguard shade.

I had one on my Palazzo and it was great. Very easy to put on the glass and no step stool or ladder was needed. I definitely recommend the product.

I have one for my 2016 Vegas 24.1. FANTASTIC!!!
Certainly worth every dollar. Used daily in Mexico and the difference between on & off is amazing temperaturewise!
Highly recommend. And a GREAT company to deal with.

I have been talking to them about my Vegas, they do have them but they leave a small strip of the windshield uncovered. Apparently the headliner restricts access to the back of the windshield. They say that you can't see thru the windshield while inside the vehicle. I am getting one as soon as I get the funds.

The part uncovered is the black part at the top. Cannot see it from the inside.

Marine and srolfe: Do you have the larger or smaller windshield?

I wonder if they fully cover the smaller windshield...

I have the smaller windshield on my 2017 and there is a small gap at the top and bottom, but it's the black part of the window. Everything is blocked from the inside. You cannot see into the coach during the day. At night with lights on you def need the night shades pulled. Quality product and great company to deal with.

I have the side shades and it's really nice blocking the sun out while still being able to see everything going on outside.

Actually, if you have specific questions, I would email the company directly, they answer their emails and have been very helpful.

We just had our Magneshade installed on our 2016 Vegas 24.1 last Tuesday. We're very happy so far with the shade. As everyone says, the company is great to deal with and the shade itself works as advertised. The shade does keep the interior cooler while allowing you to see outside.We went with the brown color.

WNC,

Looks Great. Do you know if they offer the side windows also? Where in NC did you get the install? We live in Lincolnton. Also, rough estimate of total cost for install and front windshield?

Thanks.

Doc

They are located in Mocksville, NC. Call Roger and make an appointment. I had mine made and installed by him at their location. Great service!

Yes they do make shades for the side windows too. I had them on the Palazzo since I only had curtains and no shades.

I don't remember the cost.

Gary

How is it secured to the windshield? Do they have to drill holes in the body?

There are very stong magnets on the inside of the glass and magnets inside the pouches on the shade. No holes are drilled. It is very easy to put up and take down.

The magnets are "earth" magnets. Yep, VERY strong.

My son in law and I did the install in less than hour. We are both perfectionists (or my bride tells us) so we ensured we did everything as per the instructions.

I can put up the shade in less than 2 minutes. Taking down is even quicker.

But if you are that close to the Magne Shade facility I would have them do the install.

Just my $.02 worth!
