    hi All,

    just got a set of thermal blinds for the wagon, just wondering if they keep the heat in better in the cold if you have the shiny part on the inside, to reflect the heat inside the van, and absorb more sunlight on the less reflective side from outside, this makes sense to me but you see them in ski resorts with the refelctive foil facing outwards.

    any toughts?

    Our are the same both sides. Also the label goes on the outside as it has an anti theft sign on it, on the drivers and passenger side window.

    just thought , you may mean internal ones. If so arnt the suckers fixed on , ours were.

    yes, should have clarified, I do mean the internal blinds.

    the suckers on mine can be taken out and reversed in direction, so this would allow to have the silvery side facing inside the van or outside
