Will Tinting My RV Windows Keep the RV Cooler?

Window tinting in an RV can reduce light and heat and increase privacy. There are a few guidelines to help you decide the type of tinting to use.

  • Thicker tinting reduces the amount of the sun's rays that penetrate the glass and enter the vehicle.
  • A window tinting of 30 will reduce the heat and light by 30 percent, this means better cooling and less strain on your RV's air conditioning system, or perhaps you won't need to use it at all.
  • Thicker window tinting will keep the RV cooler in the daytime and help contain the cool air of the night from escaping.
  • In addition to cooling, the darker windows will protect upholstery from fading.
