We are going to have the automated window shade on the windshield, but are wondering what we are going to use on the drivers window and door windows. The dina has the air door, so it is a bit of a challenge. We may eventually do something different with it, but for now, it is what we have. We relocate every day or two, so the coverings need to be something simple, but something that looks nice. There are only two large original windows up front, havent decided what to do with them yet either. Thought about the automated covers, but would really like something that looks a little nicer. Any suggestions?

Ruthi,

I work for Pella windows. We have a shade called a room darkening shade that is cellular fabric shade and it is great for darkening the room. It has 3 layers of fabric. I could check on it if you like. It may be the same type shade that Clifford was recommending as I am sure the same supplier sells to others.

thanks yall. Bryan, we have those shades in our current bus. They have worked well, but I dont see them working on the door and driver areas. The biggest problem is the strange shapes.
