No. I re-installed the rear panels.
The reflectex is a semi-permanent installation. Not only is it secured by the tension of the Airstream back window panels, but also with some heavy duty outdoor type velcro strips located on the metal window frame.
Last year I tried some cheesy camping world relfecetex squares stuck to the rear windows with some low grade velcro squares. They lasted a day. A days worth of sun exposure melted the velcro adhesive and let the sqaures slide down the window. Messy and sticky. Found that with this new installation, with the rear facing the sun (as it does in my driveway), it blocks a substantial amount of heat.
Bought the relfectex in a Home Depot near Shoreline, Washington. Then brought the whole damn roll with me in the teardrop trailer
While I was out there I did manage to cut some side window panels, of which one is also semi-permannetly installed in the window behind the galley.
