    I often thought blacked out tinted windows looked nice on a limo and a ambulance.

    Having parked up on a site a few times now next to either a MH or a tugger with blacked out windows -- i get paranoid problems:RollEyes::shout:

    Is there anyone in there?:Eek!:
    Can they see me scratching my ****?
    Can they see what me and ***** are doing?
    Are they watching me eat(and dribble)?
    Are they just sat looking at all ,knowing no one can see them?

    I notice people the other side of them had their blinds up .i did too after a while-- they anti social -like a black cctv camera lens.

    Would anyone buy these windows on purpose or is it how the van came.

    When we do the PVC we are going to fit them. For the reason you say.
    So we can see you and you can't see us :Rofl1:
    I also think they are a good security feature nobody knows if you are in , or not.

    But then again you wouldn't be able to see a burglar in there going through the cupboards either :Eek!:

    Can you see in the blacked out windows when the light is on and its dark outside does anyone know ? Hope you can't.
    Ralph likes to leave the blinds down to see out and about when its dark . I dont as i feel im in a goldfish bowl. I put them up then when i go to the loo etc he puts them down:BigGrin:
    We usually compromise by him having his side down and me my side up:Rofl1:
    But we both agree on the blacked out windows.

    I had them on an RV once, they did stop a lot of the suns rays. On the anti social side they never stopped people from coming and drinking my beer :RollEyes:

    Speaking to a friend who was in Special Branch a few years ago and he commented that anyone with a top of the range Range Rover with Black Tinted Windows may as well have the words ‘drug dealer’ painted on the side. His words not mine..

    Our old Elddis Autocirrus had them.

    They looked smart to start with, but then you realised you were turning on your lights before everyone else, you missed the colour of the sky and you looked like a prison van!

    THEY WERE CRAP!:BigGrin:
