Privacy curtain for around the windshield

I've been searching for a privacy curtain that will wrap around the windshield inside without any luck. My coach came with a curtain that velcros behind the two front seats, but my front seats swivel to face the rear, and this curtain will block being able to do that.

I rented a Chateau last year that had velcro attachments around the front doors and windshield to hold the curtain. It worked fine and also gave us access to the stereo in the dashboard, which I want to do now.

I ordered some inside sunshades, so I'll see how they work. Does anyone know a source where I can order a wrap around curtain for a Class C?

Go out on Google and look up Ford e450 Windshield sun screen. You'll see an image for High End Motorsports. They sell a windshield and side window set of sun screens custom cut to fit the Jayco Class C with the Ford E450 Chassis. It costs about $79 and it's worth it.

I purchased a set and it provides excellent privacy.

Good Luck

Thanks for the feedback. I actually was out searching late last night and saw that exact one. I did order it, thinking it would make a good sunshade to block heat, but wasn't sure about the gaps around the edges as a privacy curtain. I'll be interested to see how well they fit.

Windshield Cover

I purchased an external windshield cover for my 2017 Greyhawk which is the Ford E450 chassis. It works great at heat reduction and privacy. It wraps completely around the side windows and over the windshield. Magnets hold the lower side cover to the door while an elastic strap holds it to the top of the door. Velcro straps hold it to the side mirrors.

Do a search for ADCO 2407.

We have the internal shades from HeatShield[store.com] that has eliminated the need for the tedious-to-install privacy curtain. The shades are also used when the Seneca is in storage. They're a bit expensive and now I need to rehab the suction cups on the side shades now that it has been a few years. That external cover looks like a good alternative if the price is right.

2407 fits perfectly on a e450. Covers it completely and helps with the heat.

I saw those exterior windshield covers, and at first, thought it would be a good solution. But I wondered about when you take them off, being wet or dirty, now you have to find a place to store it.

The other thing, wifey likes to peek out occasionally to see what's going on. With the exterior cover, that can't happen. With a internal curtain, she can fulfill her nosiness, then close the curtain.

My wife is more concerned with the opposite. She is paranoid about someone peeking in. With the outside one that is possible but with a properly fitted inside it is not.

+2 on Adco. Works fine. After 3 years the velco bit is starting to get thin, but it still works fine and it is on the coach probably 300 our of 365 days in weather from 105 to -10. Only issue I have ever had is when we get our blustery winds above 40 mph, the magnets can be pulled loose. I started folding in the mirrors and that appears to have fixed it.

Purchased this https://www.high-end-motorsports.com...sun-shade.html for my 2009 Greyhawk 31SS, fits perfectly. Keeps the inside cooler in the summer. Previously had fabric curtain which was a PIA every time it was used.
