And the price is right. It does make a difference on our Greyhawk to vent that V10 heat outside.

Everytime I stare at my frameless window on my Greyhawk, I keep thinking about some sort or panel that might be able to just snap around the entire piece of glass. The window shades from the accessory store is great, but mounting or putting holes in the wall gives me great pause.

I was worried about the holes too, but its really a screw hole and you gob silicone caulk on the threads before you fasten it in. Really nothing more than you'd do for baggage clips or anything else mounted to the side of the rig.

My wife can sew, so our first attempt will be probably something similar to a fitted sheet. Light colored fabric, with elastic banding.

We're going to try that first.

That is one of the most interesting solutions. We just ordered HeatShields for truck cab and I am going to try the idea of the lifting the hood to vent the engine.

If I need something more, I may try the heatshields. My knee jerk reaction on our TT was to upgrade to a bigger AC, but the bigger unit is also noisier and that was almost worse than the heat. So, nothing is all that perfect.
