It's more than a rear window shade

I’ve been saving this for the new year. Let me know what you all think. I wanted to make a window shade that isn’t a one-trick pony so here’s what I came up with.

This is my prototype window shade. I put 3 rain fly pole set holders on it to see if I could. I don’t have 3 rain fly pole sets and probably never will but here they are.

What I really wanted to do was add some mesh pockets. Here are some photos of the prototype pocket. It uses hook and loop to attach to the shade.

It’s a 2-way pocket and it can be pulled from shade.

I should also mention the rear panel frame. The shade can snap directly to the panel or the frame.

I added magnet mount holders for stowing lock covers…

and a paracord handle with a d-ring. I added a lanyard I found on Amazon to help us with the reach.

Here is the window shade and the frame together. I installed stronger gas springs because of the added weight.

Well that’s it. Two parts of my vision for the camper. I use a water resistant fabric, radiant barrier, and a foam core. I attached SNAD fastners with a 3M VHB adhesive tape to the rear panel and everything can snap to those. If you are interested you can see all the details so far on the website.

There are many things you can do for the rear window and I know it’s not for everyone. If you are looking for something like this let me know. It will probably be a limited time thing or possibly seasonal.

The next projects are side panels, mosquito barrier, and some tent stuff.

Cheers!

I’ll be watching. A mosquito net sounds like a winner when camped at a back country creek with summer mosquitos buzzing everywhere.

Peace.

Thank you everyone.

@GFC706 That would be great. So many good reasons to have mosquito netting. I’ve slept down in the doghouse for several nights and wished I had it.
