with the original windows intact, but even with the curtains it a little bright so my wife wants to know if they can be tinted.. I don\t know if they can so I am asking you all.. Do you know if you can tint the Corning glass without causing a problem? thanks in advance..
I am in the midst of tinting the windows on our '69 Sovereign. It is something that can test your patience, but hopefully it will work out. I did one window (kitchen) yesterday. I am using the highest reflective and heat blocking type. We camp in mostly really hot areas and I am trying to minimize the heat inside the trailer.
If your model does not have window frames, that certainly is an advantage. On mine the biggest challenge is to keep the dirt and trash that hides in the cracks around the frame to glass connection from "backwashing" under the edges of the film and making bumps in the film.
Another challenge is (for me) the fact that the windows have a slight curve. That curve seems to keep the film from sticking easily to the glass. I found that the squeegee needs to be flexible enough to bend to the curve of the glass but stiff enough to really press the film to the glass.
Concord window film is the brand that I purchased and they have a very informative web site. Pictoral instructions.
Man! getting those windows to turn loose from the groove at the top and then reassembly is also a bummer.
I'll start window number 2 tomorrow.
best wishes, bill b.
