    Are the reflective window shades a worth while piece of kit ? We'll be in South Europe for most of our trips so temps will be medium to high in summer. I assume that they are there to reduce heat in the cab during the day ?

    Hi there
    personally we wouldn't be without ours, they keep the heat out in warm weather and the heat in in colder weather.


    cheers nige

    Yes I would say so:thumb:
    Of course your next question will be internal or external?:Doh:there will be someone who will be able explain better than me but in my opinion external work better especially at stopping condensation, but if you wild camp a lot then internal will be better in case you have to move on in the middle of the night for some reason:thumb: I have both, if I am going to a meet or show for a few days then external, if I'm going off on holiday, then I take internal as I know I will be wildcamping at least some of the time:Smile::thumb:
