Sun shade advice

We have a 2016 international 25 ft. Love it. We are looking for sun shade suggestions. We see Zipdee offers one that runs along the front of the awning. There are times that we might need some protection from the side of the awning when sun is coming in from the side. Any suggestions or ideas?

My Safari 25, purchased used, came with a piece of Sunbrella fabric that matched the awning (easy since it was solid blue) with snaps on it. I asked the PO what it was for and he didn't know. A year later I found matching snaps on the awning flap. Apparently the original owner had it made. You can get Sunbrella at an awning shop, have it cut to size, hemmed, and have snaps installed. A few dollars at a marine store such as West Marine will get you a snap installation kit. Or you can find a boat canvas company that can make the whole thing for you and install it.
