E450 Cab Window Shades

Does anyone have a recommendation for window shades/covers for the cab of their E450? I found a nice insulated windshield cover, but need something for the side windows. I dont like the Jayco supplied curtain, although it does a nice job. It blocks the radio, which we use while camping.

I have seen outside window covers, but would really like something for the inside.

You can buy the foil type insulation at a home improvement store and cut it to fit the inside opening. If cut properly it will hold itself in place without any need for any type of fastener. I have done this for my van and it works well.

If you have to have it on the outside, there is a cover made that covers the windshield and side windows in one piece available through RV stores.

If you are interested in my cheap fix, I can post a photo later.

Mark pattern with Sharpie marker holding material in place.
Cut to fit.
Press in place.

Cheap, provides privacy and keeps out heat.

I have a addecco (sp) on my Granite Ridge. I'll post the product number later. It covers the windshield and the front cab windows. Vinyl.

Sorry, I missed the part about wanting an interior solution. Mine covers the outside.

Can you give me a little more information on the insulation used? I went to Home Depot and didn't find anything that looked like it would work. They had 3/8" thick wall insulation with what looked like fiberglass sandwiched between foil; is that what you used?

It typically comes in a roll and has it has plastic resembling bumble wrap in between. I forgot the name of it but I bought it at a Lowe's store. I think it can be bought in smaller quanities, but I made one for every window in my van.
