I know this is an old post, but do you still have some of the alububble? I am in Cape Town and looking for some.

Thanks,
Nick

I imported a set of the GoWesty insulated covers & they are magic, just very expensive to import, they work with the suckers & block out the windows 100%, go & look on their website.

Got some mesh material"fiber"(not plastic)..
We used rope that runs inside a "bias"/seam .....it hooks perfectly around window frames.
Should even be tight enough to drive at 120km/h ;-)

Our bus is now mosquito-proof....none go in, none go out ;-)

RE: Any ideas on window covers?
Years ago I made mosquito net covers for each window and the open sliding door using Velcro glued on the inside of the windows on the window frame rubber. Used good old Genkem contact adhesive. Still works today and you can hardly notice the Velcro strips when the mosquito net is not in use.
For the open sliding door area I kept it simple, about 8 clothes pegs attached it to the open frame work and the bottom of the large mosquito net has a piece of material attached with sand in it to create just enough weight that it hangs straight down at all times works like a dream. I'll post pics later. Never had mozzie problems and takes seconds to put up or take off.

RE: Any ideas on window covers?
Hey guys,

any ideas for keeping the sun out? My wife hates curtains! I was thinking about normal tinting (say 30%), but not sure if this would be enough... maybe some interior blinds you can recommend? What do you guys recommend?

Thanks!
Johann

Tinting works up to a extend.... Curtains are classic! ;-)

RE: Any ideas on window covers?
Here is an idea for keeping both the sun and the mozzies out:
   
It has a mozzie net coming down from the top and a blackout blind coming from the bottom, which can be attached to one another. It is made by Dometic, comes in various widths and can be cut to any height. I have worked out that it will fit on the side windows (excluding the sliding door). Busy getting a price.

For the sliding door and back door how about this idea:
   
   
   

Perfect for being able to sleep with both open on hot nights!
