My wife and I live in an RV and we travel all over the country looking at different places.
We have visited lots of state and national parks.
We’ve been to all of the landmarks that you would find on a top 20 list. We settled down in a place where there is a lot of sun during the summer. Even during the winter months, the sun shines brightly every day and there are hardly any clouds in the sky. The sun can be a problem frequently. We are lucky that we don’t have to pay for electricity in the campgrounds where we stay, because it would cost a fortune to run the AC as frequently as we do. Last summer, there were temperatures forecasted to be 110° 3 days in a row and I knew it was necessary to block as much of the sun as possible. We used aluminum foil to block the sun’s rays. We placed the shiny side out so we could block the heat. It actually worked very well, but it looked horrible and we couldn’t see out of the windows at all. It felt like we were living in a dungeon. This summer I tried to install sun blocking window film. I purchased some cheap sun blocking window film from an online retailer. The place had several different colors to choose from. They also had decorative sun blocking window film that looked like stained glass windows. I chose a window film that is dark and is supposed to reflect 99% of the sun’s UV rays. I tried to install the sun blocking window film on my own, but I didn’t do a very good job. A few spots could be better.
