Need an easy way to reduce heat and increase privacy? Here you go!
Using space blankets and cardboard, you can protect your vehicle from the sun and peeping eyes.
A perfect way to increase your camping efficiency!
Step 1: Supplies and Template
- Brown packing paper (from an Amazon delivery)
- Cardboard from boxes
- Utility blade
- Marking utensil (pen/pencil/marker)
Roughly cut out a sheet to cover the window fully
Trace out the outline of the window with a marking implement
Trace around and mark out any hinges/antennas/latches on the windows
Step 2: Paper to Cardboard
Cut out the paper template and trace out onto cardboard
Carefully cut out the template and fit into window to test it's shape
Trim and reshape till the template fits snugly next to the window
Step 3: Wrap and Tape
Place the template onto a square of space blanket (or solar shield) slightly larger than the template
tape the long edges down before folding over and taping down the curves and edges with shape turns
Step 4: Repeat and Fit
Since the left and right mirror each other, I only had to trace out three windows: the driver-side center, driver-side rear, and rear window.
It took seconds to install, just pop it into the window!
