Default Sunshade for Chevy Roadtrek

Hi.

I'm looking for a external sunshade that will cover the windshield and the two front door windows to keep the heat down. Usually hooks the mirrors and the top corner of the door.
I haven't been able to find anything specific to a 2003 Chevy Express 2500, but I see lots for the Ford 350 Class C.

I'm wondering if anyone has used one on these Chevy Roadtrek and whether or not it fits. If not' any ideas who sells them?.

All I can see are the inside ones, which i do not want.

Thanks

Don't know the brand or where it is even, probably in house crawl space now, as it has been 13 years since we got it and quit hauling it around after a couple years of never using it.

Hi, Are you saying put was heavy and bulky to carry around and put on?
I thought that the reflective type were kind of a compact and lightweight.
I don't want something that takes up a lot of room in my small 170P.
Maybe u had the older vinyl style?.

thanks

Thanks.. I think that one might be kind of heavy and large for lugging around and putting on/off on a daily basis. More for long term storage
Looking for more like that lightweight insulated reflective material that goes on and rolls up easy .

thanks again

I have the ADCO.



They have a couple of options available so check their website.


fits like a glove and well made




BUT for everyday use camping I usually just use the reflectix type shade


I bought a roll at home depot and cut covers for each of the windows- the windshield I have a large accordioning shade

For those looking for a camping cover, the Adco 2509 is the best one Iíve found. It wraps around to cover the side windows, and then you can put those windows down for extra ventilation sine the cover has screen windows. The windshield cover also converts from blackout to translucent to let some light in. Iíd give quality a 7 out of 10 mainly since it is a vinyl cover and you have to be a bit careful not to rip the hold on straps. Donít worry if the description says Class C. The various Chevy Expressí on Bís, B+ís and Cís all have the same windows shape, 1500, 2500, or 3500

I have the ADCO one-the first one mailed to me didn't fit properly, but returned and got the proper one. Need to be careful with the magnets-even though they are sewn into the fabric, they can cause scratches on the paint if you drag it over the hood when putting on quickly by yourself.

An external cover may be what you want but consider if this foil-covered bubble wrap insulation will do the job. It is low-cost, quickly installed, can easily be rolled up for storage and is an effective heat shield. (Summer heat can be excessive in many BC locations). Home Depot sells the foil-covered bubble wrap insulation in rolls that you can custom-cut to your requirements). Because of the foil and insulating bubble layer, it is an effective heat-shield and doubles as a black-out curtain when camping/sleeping in Northern locations where daylight may last all night. If desired, it can be custom-cut as a light-blocker for all windows. Don't leave home without it.

Based on this thread I ordered the ADCO 2409 for my '08 Roadtrek ('07 Chevy Express van chassis). I have Ventvisors on the side windows and it still fits fine. Covering the window seals will really help in TX. I used to always keep the window shields (inside) and pull the curtains when parked, but I think this outside cover does a better job of keeping the sun out and will help keep it cooler inside. I really like it! Thanks, Bruce.

Agree for TX 100+ heat or for saving the tint on a windshield (they fade). I use it daily.
I used this same cover, reflextix, and drew the curtains plus had a curtain midway to the floor to help trap cool air from going to the cabin.

Would you share a recommendation for something that fits a ProMaster?

I bought a cheap one for regular cars and it covers about 87% of the windshield.
