I purchased the easy snaps and they were very easy to install. I installed solar screen on my RV.
These things work amazing. No worries with the high winds, hot days or freezing cold.
The salesman was very helpful.
Thank you for this product. I will definitely be ordering more in the future…
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your review.
My Easysnap covers worked great.
Followed the directions and had no problem with the installation.
Tested the heat coming into my RV, results were more than I expected.
My AC doesn't run all the time now. Great product.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for letting us know Ron!
We live in our RV year-around here in Northeast Oklahoma. Needless to say, it gets a little warm here in the summer, and the afternoon sun can be challenging especially when your largest windows are pointing to the West.
Glad we decided to try the EasySnap...IT WORKS GREAT!
Super easy to install with a pair of scissors, tape measure, while utilizing the white wax pencil enclosed with the fabric.
Thought I was going to have to buy a window a/c unit for this summer, but not now.
GOOD JOB, EASYSNAP!!!
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your kind words Albert... it's great to know that EZ Snap is keeping your RV cooler in Northeast Oklahoma!
I installed the EZ Snap window shades on my 40ft motorhome.
I was a bit apprehensive about installing the shade over the front windshield myself (in North Dakota wind).
It turned out the project was much easier than anticipated.
The layout calculator made it very easy to make the right cuts without a great deal of waste.
I installed all the snaps (3M adhesive type) one day and then a couple of days later installed the shade.
It is working great and everything is looking good.
Thank you EZ Snap!
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for letting us know Dan.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your feedback Tim.

Personally, I love the EZ Snap. It was easy to install just measure, cut and stick. The instructions were clear and I was able to install it by myself.
I originally bought it as the summer sun warms up the camper a lot and I wanted another layer of shade.
The added bonus is that it acts as a privacy screen where you can see out but no one can see in. Overall I’m pleased with my purchase.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your review and photos Chris. We appreciate your feedback.
The installation was easier than I thought it would be.
We have had a few days in the high 90's. Couldn't have the window shades up in that heat before.
99 today and window shades are up. Can't believe how much of a difference the covers make.
Our air conditioners actually cycle like they should.
Best investment we could have.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for letting us know Jerry... very nice to know that EZ Snap is keeping your RV Cooler!
I was a bit apprehensive about installing the shades at first but those fears were totally unfounded.
I followed the instructions carefully and the install went smoothly. I put them on the south and west facing windows of our fifth wheel and boy what a difference they made!
The rig is noticeably cooler during the hot Arizona days and being able to still see outside is awesome!
Thank you EZ Snap.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the review Russ. Happy to hear that EZ Snap RV Shades are keeping you cooler in Arizona!
A RV friend recommended I look into EZsnap for my 5th Wheel. We bought a campsite facing South. We have the sun from morning until sunset. It’s brutally hot especially coming through the large back window and the dinette windows.
I decided to try EZsnap. I ordered the 15’ kit with a lot of extra glue/drill snaps in tan to match the outside. I followed the video directions. I am 5’4” and over 60.
I got out my hubbies electric drill, a quilting ruler and a sharpie marker, climbed up the ladder and marked all my snaps. Took off the sticky back, pushed them in place and anchored the screw using a screwdriver and electric drill.
I followed the directions to position the screen fabric and tried not to stretch. In hindsight I wish I would have made it a bit tighter on the huge back window.
Then I pushed all the snap locks on. This part was a bit tough as my fingers hurt a bit after doing 5 windows.
So Worth It!!! Oh my goodness, I can not believe the difference it has made.
We LOVE eZSnap! Best investment we’ve made for the 5th Wheel.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your feedback Deb. It's nice to know that EZ Snap Shades are keeping your RV cooler.
We didn't want to install screws I to our camper, so the 3M adhesive snaps were a great alternative.
The shades as well as the snaps are of excellent quality.
Easy to install. Looks great.
Kept camper noticeably cooler. Stands up to hot Arizona temps and wind!
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for positive review Kathy. Happy to hear that EZ Snap RV Shades are keeping you cooler in the Arizona sunshine!
My 2018 Keystone Cougar 5th wheel trailer has a number of windows. This gives wonderful views and permits massive amounts of heat to build inside the unit. EZ Snap provides an effective and affordable solution while maintaining the view.
I ordered my kit and it was shipped within 24 hours. Read carefully the tips then reread the tips. The mesh is easy to cut using the provided tool. Order plenty of the 3M Primer if you are using the adhesive studs. Take your time attaching the mesh to the studs as this step is crucial to achieving a smooth, unwrinkled window covering.
So, in short, EZ Snap does what it says it does. It greatly reduces the amount of sunlight entering the unit while maintaining the ability to see out!
Happy Customer from Texas
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the positive review Stephen, we appreciate it.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks Scott
It has been a few months since I purchased my ez snap blind for my RV. I have been waiting for some warmer weather. Installation was quite simple. I cleaned the surfaces with alcohol. Then applied the buttons. Trying to apply 15 lbs of pressure to each. I did 7" spacing on top and bottom of window. 10" spacing on the sides (only three each on sides of window).
I cut the fabric to the size needed. I waited three days to finish the install. Put the fabric over the spikes making sure I did not put excessive strain on the spikes. Put on the final pieces of the snaps and trimmed three of the corners to match the radius of the window frame.
I purposely left the bottom right corner square so it would be easier to figure out which way is up when I use the screen in the field. My only problem is that the snap pieces have little tits on them from the manufacturing process. Watch it, because they are sharp and puncture finger tips quite easily. Leading to a clean up of your blood off the RV side.
I highly recommend this product. We thought of a rolling shade at first, but it would have greatly limited our view out the window during the day. Our goal was to have a shade in place that would permit us to leave the inside blind up and still see outside during the day. All the while blocking out the direct sunlight from penetrating into the RV cabin.
Now we can leave things on the dining table and don't have to worry about sun damage to them.
Installed on 61" x 31" dining area window. 2017 Fourwinds 23u
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the great review Jay.
I have a 2007 Forest River Cardinal that myself and my husband full time in for the last 14 years.
At our site in central Florida the back window gets sun for the entire day. And the heat was terrible over the years. Faded my carpet awful.
Decided to fix the problem. I hate reflextix. I wanted to still see out. So I googled exterior window cover. First page that came up is ezsnaps.
Placed the order and it arrived super quick. Immediately installed. It was super ez to install... The instructions were fantastic, the cutter worked amazing, the look is perfect and beautiful. Took less than an hour to install.
I could not be happier with this product. My only complaint is I should have done this year's ago. I will continue to cover more windows as finances presents.
Absolutely product of the year!!!
Thanks for making magic EzSnaps.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your great review Allison. It's great to hear that EZ Snap Shades are keeping you cooler in Florida!
I ordered this shade to cover the back window of a travel trailer. The window is 6’x4’. Installation was easy and it looks great. I’m a 61 year old woman and installed it myself. I immediately felt the difference inside. My only concern, will the 3m bases hold up to the extreme heat in FL. I emailed the customer service team and they ensured me that they will hold up. I certainly hope so. Remains to be seen. I have already recommended this product.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks Sandy. Rest assured, that EZ Snap and 3M have created a tested and proven Fastener that can withstand extreme hot and cold weather.
Very happy with the EZ Snap RV shades! Install was easy, as described.
Here is a picture of the finished product.
EZ Snap® Team - Install looks great Gary! Thanks for sending your photos and positive review.
I bought this for my RV to use in Yuma AZ.
I am very satisfied with the product and it did lower the temperatures in my camper as promised.
I would recommend the shades to anyone who needs help to cool their camper.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your review Robert. Great to hear EZ Snap Shades are keeping you cooler in Yuma!
Received product in timely fashion. It arrived as described and in good condition. Promptly installed the screens on my RV.
Very pleased at how they kept heat down and didn’t obscure our views.
Thanks for a great product.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks Jason. Glad to hear EZ Snap is keeping your RV cooler.
Well, we bought a new destination trailer. And we love it. However, the large window in the bedroom faces directly east and with the morning sun, it was hot, even with the shade down in the morning. Sleeping in was not an option, just too damn hot.
After a lot of online research, we chose EZ Snap for a novel and different solution.
And you know what, their website was spot on, everything it said was TRUE! We are not scientists, and I cannot give you the physics, but, after we installed the EZ Snap window (see our pics) the temperature in our bedroom in the morning on a sunny day dropped 10 to 15 degrees..hard to believe…but true.
We have since purchased a second round of the EZ Snap product and will be installing the covering on our front windows as well.
It’s a good product, easy to install, and it does what it says it does, unique in this day and age.
John and Cathy Crovo
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your positive review and photos. Glad to hear EZ Snap RV Window Shades are keeping you cooler!
Our EZSNAP screen arrived in a very good shipping container and will reuse for stowage when in transit. As ordered, all parts were included.
The directions were clear and straightforward, might add a suggestion for snap minimum distance from edge of screen.
Having an extra pair of hands is crucial since tape does not stick to the screen.
After installation there was a very noticeable difference in temperature inside.
I highly recommend this product.
The slit in bottom is to allow the lower windows to open...
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the positive review and photos Robert. Very nice installation... looks great!
Just wanted to share my installation where I used the existing metal male snap studs already installed on my coach.
As you can see i used black stainless steel snaps to match the fabric and tripled the fabric where i installed the female part of the snap.
Your screen material is just fantastic. The coach is cooler inside as you claim, privacy during the day and it looks great.
Also very easy to work with.
Could not be happier with a product.
EZ Snap® Team - Nice work George. Looks very professional. For other customers reading this, it is not necessary to double or triple layer EZ Snap Shade Mesh... it is super strong and does not stretch or rip.
In order to deal with the COVID changes this year (2020) our summer trip was shortened by a few weeks, causing the installation of my EZSnap window screens to be done in two parts on my stationery camper.
This year, the adhesive snaps were placed on the camper and that process went pretty easy and smoothly. I did plan out the snap locations before actually installing, and that was very helpful for me.
The final steps, which are cutting out the screen and hanging it will be done when we return during summer of 2021. I am anticipating using the layout sheet provided, and as long as I take my time, measure twice to cut once that step will be as smooth.
Once I decided to purchase this product, EZ Snap Customer Service answered all my questions and offered suggestions to make sure I ordered the correct numbers of buttons, etc. So far, I am finding this company easy to deal with, willing to make suggestions, very professional, kept me up to date with my order status, and their website was very well laid out and informative.
Once I am fully installed, I will update review with how well the screens work for me.--
Carol & Jerry
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your kind words Carol & Jerry.
Really loved the ez-snap's that i bought they were so easy to deal with and really don't mess up the look of the rv.
The added privacy and shade & the AC unit works less (or so it seems).
These are so easy to install and there really is no maintenance...
Love the product...
Wayne & Carolyn
EZ Snap® Team - Thank you for letting us know. Glad the EZ Snap Shades are keeping your RV cooler!
this system is stupid. to may fasteners should be larger and less. material should have a hem on ends instead of a flat piece of material. blocking sunlight is satisfactory. hate the looks of all the fasteners, will take off of motorhome and throw in trash. wasted money.
EZ Snap® Team - Sorry to hear about your dissatisfaction Dennis. We have lots of photos and videos on the EZ Snap website showing exactly what the installed Shades look like. We strive to keep our customers happy, but it sounds like EZ Snap just isn't the right product for you.
I’m not great at reviews but here’s mine. I’ve installed these on my grand design solitude rv.
Unfortunately due to my spot my rv catches all the daylight sun and heat.
Since installing these my rv has been cooler.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for letting us know Jason. Glad to hear EZ Snap is keeping your RV cooler.
Put up EZ Snap Shade Screen on my rental RV. Clients loved the fact that the screens cut down the heat from radiating into the trailer.
The screens on my RV went through a direct hit from Hurricane Hanna and they held up beautifully. Great product. 3M strong.
Super satisfied in Port Mansfield, Texas🎣
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your compliments Ray. Great to hear that EZ Snap Shades are keeping your customers cooler in Texas!
...we love your product, it does everything your website says it does, and that is refreshing.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks John.
I purchased the EZ Snap Sun Shade for our RV. We wanted to reduce the effects of the afternoon sun.
The product had been reviewed on an RV website.
I have installed it on one large window and am quite happy with how it went. Great instructions. Every step was really easy.
Since we have high winds occasionally, I placed the snaps on 5" spacing like the instructions recommended. We have experienced some really bad wind storms this summer and have had no problem with the shade.
When we move to travel to another location, removing the shade is a snap. With the tool, they really do pop off easily.
The shade does a great job of reducing the sun on the window and we hardly notice it in place.
If you are like us and are concerned with high winds, I recommend you order extra snaps.
Overall, great product, easy to install, easy to remove, greatly reduces the effects of the sun, very little impact on visibility out of the window.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your great review Ralph!
Good day ladies & gents....
I have done the windshield and 3 other windows and so far the wife and I are pleased with the results (aesthetically and temperature wise).
I have now ordered more adhesive snaps, as I initially underestimated the amount to finish off this project to my liking and to be physically and aesthetically pleasing.
We have a 2006 Fleetwood Bounder 35E, I purchased your snap system and used a shade cloth product of my liking for our project.
I think your company could sell clear button up pouch bags for organizing the shades, we are using leftover clear bags that we recently purchased, comforters and bedding in.
We are very satisfied with the product and how it functions and how it looks when the shades are removed....
Wayne & Carolyn Williams, Oliver BC Canada
EZ Snap® Team - Thank you for the photo and review.
Love my new EZ Snap shades!
I admit that I stalled for a little after they came in thinking they would be difficult to cut and install. But it wasn’t, my husband was cutting grass so I started (and finished) by myself!
They were very easy and have cooled our camper down a ton!!
It’s a must have for your camper!
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks Sandra. Glad to hear that EZ Snap Shades are keeping your camper cooler.
I purchased the sun screen for my RV. We are out in Arizona for the summer and the camper stayed hot.
With the sun shade on all the windows it keeps the RV about 10 to 15 degrees cooler.
I would recommend that any full-time get it.
My next investment will be the skirting.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for letting us know Devin. Happy to hear EZ Snap Shades are keeping you cooler in Arizona!
The campground we have our trailer on an annual site removed the only shade trees we had due to it being in bad shape.
Typically our trailer recorded temps inside that were above the outside temperature and our AC ran continually.
I watched a video review and decided that the EZ Snap was worth trying. I measured all the windows that had to be covered and entered the information into their website layout tool that reported back what we needed to purchase.
The installation went well. I followed the instructions, washed the siding, rubbed it down with diluted Alcohol and used a level to outline where the snaps should go.
Installed on the 7 windows in a couple of hours.
The next day, I laid out the pattern on a deck at the campsite and cut them out per the template that the layout tool created and installed around the windows.
They are mostly flat and I was pleased that the interior light was better than before installing because I can leave the shades up and let more light in.
All in all – the project was fairly easy. Illustrations about how to layout the anchors might have made it easier but it was all done in 3-4 hours of work over two days. The heat wave has lessened so I cannot claim the comfort is a lot better and I look forward to testing that out when we get a long stretch of sunny days.
My neighbors commented on the project and I shared the information with them. It is a good sized investment but it improves the comfort inside the trailer (and I am hopeful) then it will be worth it.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for reporting back Don.
Very disappointed in the look of it. While it does help cool, didn’t realize you have to cut them on your own. The ones I put on my wheels are folding up from the ground because there is not a thick edge to it because it’s just cut material. This was extremely expensive because I ordered for all my rv windows and tires and just really disappointed. Really should have gone with another company 🙁
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your candid feedback Crystal. Sorry to hear that you are not pleased with your purchase. We do our best to put lots of photos and accurate descriptions of all EZ Snap products on our website. Our goal is to let potential customers see what the end result will look like (from inside and out) before deciding to order. We also do our best to provide how-to videos and instructions for all customers to see before ordering. Although EZ Snap RV Shades will work for tires, we do not mention that anywhere on our website... you're right, there are better products for protecting RV tires from the sun.
I have a large RV that I keep in Rockport, Texas which is very near the Gulf of Mexico and subject to high wind and heat. I was looking for an effective way to reduce the heat inside the RV and investigated various possible solutions.
I tried putting reflective partitions in the West side windows which was somewhat effective but there was no view to be had. I then thought of building my own solar screen housings but attaching the screens to the RV would be problematic and not at all aesthetically pleasing.
In doing some research into the matter, I discovered the EZ Snap sunscreens and after reading many favorable reviews, purchased the necessary material through the EZ Snap website.
My order was received in a very timely fashion and I then followed the easy to understand installation instructions and installed the EZ Snap sunscreens on four of my RV windows without any issue.
The end result was a very noticeable reduction in senseable outside heat when sitting near the windows where the EZ Snap sunscreens are secured onto the RV exterior. The EZ Snap solar screens have been on my RV for nearly two months and despite being exposed to particularly heavy winds in recent weeks, the solar screens still look great. I have included a few pictures showing the progression of the EZ Snap installation from Start to Finish.
Based on my experience, this is a very solid product that I would recommend to others.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the review and photos.
I really like the way my screens came out, and the price was very good... they have cut down on the heat from coming in the RV.
I give them a 10.
We live in Las Vegas 114 degrees.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the review Tom. Great to know EZ Snap is keeping your RV cooler in Las Vegas!
EZ Snap is a great way to beat the summer heat and you can save hundreds of dollars by doing it yourself!
Ordering online is easy, with a custom web tool that helps you order just the right amount of material and fasteners.
Installation is simple. The only things you will need to provide is a step ladder and alcohol for cleaning the surface. The rest is a snap. C
lean the surface, attach the provided fastener, install the fabric, trim as needed and you are done.
We did the windows on our 40’ Class A in about 4 hours spread out over 2 days.
We are definitely enjoying the cooler temperatures and added privacy.
Video Review (click to play):
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the review and detailed video Carson. Hope EZ Snap is still keeping your Class A Coach cooler in Florida! Note that accuracy of infrared thermometer readings taken on glass (and other reflective surfaces) can vary widely. Taking temperature measurements on carpet or furniture (with and without shades) may provide better results.
Slowly putting my shading material on the windows due to hectic work schedule and weather issues in Florida. I successfully got the windshield and a few side windows hung and boy what a difference!
My neighbors love the look as well as the illuminating light that comes through without the harsh sunlight. When I put my hand against the windshield on the inside of my motorhome the difference is very noticeable.
I made a great choice and appreciate your professionalism and patience with me.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks Doug. We're happy that you're happy!
Excellent product, its a snap to use!
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks Tracy!
The online calculator was great. It allowed us to do even more windows than we anticipated. The ordering and shipping were easy to do.
The material cut easily and instructions were very good.
We did four windows on our RV that aren’t covered by our awnings and the door. They are East and West windows.
It made a huge improvement in keeping camper cool.
We used the 3M and put directly on windows. We left the trim On about an inch outside the windows all the way around.
We are very happy and would recommend these to cut the heat and sunlight coming into the camper.
Thanks for a great product and support!
Happy Campers in Michigan
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the positive review and photos Carol. Nice to know EZ Snap Shades are keeping your RV cool in Michigan.
Your product is easy to use. I used a square, a yard stick, and a level to place the snads. I marked the material with the white wax pencil and the product cut easily...
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for letting us know.
Very happy with product. Easy to install.
Made a huge difference in the temperature in RV.
Definitely would recommend.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the recommendation. We appreciate it.
I bought and installed the sun shade on my RV.
Great product, lowered the temp inside my RV by 10 to 15 degrees.
I used the calculator on the site to figure out the cheapest kit for me. Came in, installed the 3m stick on snaps, waited the 3 days, then cut out my windows and installed.
Could feel a difference right away. Definitely worth the investment.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your review Duncan!
Amazing fabric. Will not tear or fray. Mine has been installed on 5 windows.
We get very high winds in the Arizona desert, no problems at all...
My big back window has little windows that open from bottom to top. Cut fabric up center and installed fasteners on each side of cut. Works great. Again fabric doesn't split. Stays where you stop.
Ohhhhhhh, we can tell it made a big difference in temperature. Triple digit temps, that's important plus.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the review and photos John. Great to know we are keeping you cooler in Arizona!
We recently bought a new Travel Trailer to explore the U. S. and Canada. We are in south Texas with plenty of sun and heat.
Our research for ways to keep the sun’s heat out of the RV seemed to require us to lose the light by blocking our windows with insulation.
A friend referred us to EZ Snap as an option. He has used EZ Snap on his 40 foot fifth wheel for the past 18 months in the Texas sun.
I went to the website, completed the measuring tool and ordered the recommended kit. We received our order quickly with the kit packed well.
Installation was fast and easy with clear instructions.
We chose to not use the marker pencil and marked the pattern out with a chock line instead. This really made the process very easy.
Once installed we have experienced the value of the EZ Snap. We have been in high 90’s to low 100’s every day since the shades have been installed. We have been able to keep the blinds up, even during the hottest part of the day the single air conditioner has kept the RV cool.
Removing and reinstalling the screens for moving adds less than 10-minutes to our set-up and breakdown times. This is a great product that has resulted in a custom look and greater privacy.
I would not hesitate to purchase again.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the positive feedback and photos! Good to know EZ Snap is keeping you cooler in Texas.
Excellent product!! The installation was easy and looks awesome!!
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the positive review Luis.
We are full time RV'ers.
Before putting the window coverings on the coach area of the slide out was warm even with tinted windows.
Since putting the window covering on there is a noticeable difference.
They were easy to cut and apply. They are very durable and are not affected by the wind.
Because we are on the move it was also important to put these coverings on and take them off in a reasonable time. I have them on 8 windows and it takes me 15 minutes to take off roll up and put them away. Putting them back on takes about the same 15 to 20 minutes. We also used the excess material to cover our refrigerator vents. See attached photos.
We are very happy with our purchase.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your review and photos Jerry!
We were concerned with using our EZ Snap on our 5th wheel while it sat in Florida for the summer. Being from the Upper Midwest, we had to travel recently back to Florida and while there we stopped to see how the EZ Snap was holding up.
We are extremely impressed that the shades are doing exactly as advertised since our camper area has had bad weather and high winds. I would highly recommend this product.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your recommendation Kelly!
Very easy installation, works very good, looks good, love the price and quality.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the review and photos Thomas!
Awesome product, we have a huge back window on our camper as well as several large windows, used the mesh window covers and what a difference, air conditioning doesn't have to work as hard to keep camper cool and you don't have to close blinds so it's a plus to be able to see out your windows.
Easy to place the snaps and easy to remove the screens for travel.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks Karen.
One of the easiest projects I have done on an RV.
They look great and make a huge difference on the inside temperature.
EZ Snap® Team - Glad to hear EZ Snap is keeping you cool Darrin!
My husband and I have an old 1997 Motorhome. We are staying in Arizona and the sun comes in our front windshield and is very warm. So we decided to get a screen.
We searched the internet for sun screens, that was when we found EZSnap. So we placed the order. It came and we went to work getting the screen up. It was amazing how easy it was to cut and attach to the coach. We were so pleased we placed a second order with EZSnap to get enough screen to do all our side windows .
We would recommend EZSnap to anyone who needs sun screen.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the photo and great review Cindy.
I installed these EZ Snap screens last weekend. We are staying at a Campground just outside of Houston where the temperature gets very hot in the summer. The screens seem to help keep our RV cool.
So far the screens seem to be a great product and we are hoping to recoup the cost on the energy bill.
I ordered the 6’X 12’ kit and cut the screens myself. Installation was “EZ” and a “Snap” to do (wonder where they got the name?).
Only problem I came across was the amount of clips that came with the order. I didn’t realize that the clips should be spaced no more than 10 inches apart so I ended up having to order more clips. Before you order your screens, be sure to measure each window and calculate the number of clips needed because chances are you will be short.
Will finish installation when the rest of my clips come and will post another update.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your review and photos Bryan. Nice installation!
I bought my EZ Snap window shade material a few weeks ago and have installed it over the last four days.
We live in our RV and warm days can be a problem. Today it got up to 88 degrees. Normally I would have the A/C on at 72 degrees. Finally at 4:00 PM I had to turn it on. The temp inside was pleasant until then.
My EZ Snap Shades performed better than I expected them to. I couldn’t be happier with them. They installed exactly according to instructions. They look terrific.
I have already shown them to several neighbors who say they are going to order.
My wife said she thought they were easy enough to install that she could do it. Great product, easy install, piece of cake.
They are a great product.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the positive review and photos Bob. The shades look great!
Good service, easy to install, does the job.
EZ Snap® Team - Great feedback, thank you.
What a difference it has made since installing the mesh screen on our back camper window... less heat coming into the camper... don't have to shut the shade... air conditioning doesn't have to work as hard.
Great product and easy installation.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the positive review Karen.
Before EZ Snap RV Shades:
After EZ Snap RV Shades:
I recently purchased a kit to build window shades for my RV. We have been in Florida longer than we would have expected and needed a way to help keep our RV cooler. One of the things I liked most about EZ Snap shades, is while cutting down on the heat coming into the RV, they still allowed light in and me the ability to see out. Other solutions (day/night shades) left the inside of the RV dark.
Sitting near the windows in the middle of the day, prior to installation of the EZ Snap shades, was difficult. It was extremely warm. After the installation, I can sit in my chair, read a book or watch TV, and see outside, completely comfortable.
The sizing tool on the website provided an easy way to purchase the proper size kit and provided an easy to follow cutting diagram.
The installation was very straight forward.
I used the stick-on snaps and attached them to the window frames. I waited the recommended 24 hours before I applied the shade material. It was easy to press the shade material over the post on the snap and the look after applying the EZ Snaps shade is very clean.
The shades have worked exactly as advertised. I would certainly recommend them to anyone who is looking to block the heat from the sun while still allowing light in.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the great review and photos Brian!
EZ Snap Shades were easy to install.
I made a paper pattern of the windows. I cut the fabric and the fit was great.
The best part is the shades made the 5th wheel cooler in the Florida sun. When we left Florida the shades snapped right off with the tool provided.
Good value. I would buy again.
EZ Snap® Team - Happy to hear that EZ Snap was keeping you cooler in Florida.
We placed the black sunscreen across the back of our 5th wheel window.
Easy to install and blocks the UV rays and heat.
Allows us to still see out of our back window. Cats like it that they can still look out also.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your review Janet. Happy to hear that cats like EZ Snap too!
Love this product. Lots of sun here in Florida.
I installed on side window, door window and bedroom slide. The frame around window used to get so hot you couldn’t hold your hand on it. Now it barely gets warm.
The wall on bedroom was hot also. Now barely warm. Before when you were close to door you could feel the heat. Not anymore.
It was very easy to install. Did by myself. For the large bed room slide out I used chalk line to have straight line to install adhesive fasteners. Also chalk lined top side of fabric to get straight. Chalk washed right off.
I used the adhesive fasteners.
Take your time. Measure everything twice.
I would definitely recommend this product.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the great review Rick.
We are very pleased with our EZ Snap window shades for our motorhome.
They were easy to install and have made a big difference in the comfort of our motorhome.
The snaps were easy to install and the sunshade material was very easy to mark and cut to shape.
I would recommend them to anyone who wants to cool their rv and wants to install it themselves.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your review and photos Gary. Looking great!
I love the screen but the snaps did hold up…
EZ Snap® Team - Thank you for your order and feedback. Installation instructions and spacing between fasteners are very important for 3M Adhesive Snaps. When using one large kit for numerous windows, it is critical to order extra snaps and install with correct spacing.During the purchase process, every customer is informed about the importance of calculating the number of fasteners required to install their unique shade project properly.EZ Snap has even developed custom software to calculate the correct fastener count with ease (Seen here: EZ Kit Size Calculator). This fastener calculator is shown on every shade product page in the online store.If extra fasteners are required for your project, they can be purchased with your kit at a substantial discount over what you would pay if you chose to order just a few more at a later date, not to mention saving on the additional shipping costs.Every customer’s project is a little different and the kit size calculator ensures that each customer is ordering the right number of snaps for their project.
We LOVE it! Easy to install. Looks nice, and great shading!!!
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for great review!!
I had foil covered foam panels on the windows to reduce coach heat, but naturally could not see out.
Came across the EZ Snap product with good reviews so thought I would give them a try.
I ordered the black fabric since my windows are black.
Shipping was rather quick.
I attached the snaps directly to the windows.
The install was very easy. I let the snaps sit for 48 hours before installing the fabric.
Correct measurement is the hardest part of the install.
I am very pleased with the finished product. I can see out easily and still able to open the windows when needed.
I used an infrared thermometer and got 15 - 16 degree reduction in heat, same as the foil, but I can now see out.
Would recommend this product.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the positive review and photos Tom.
Where I’m parked with my RV we have to pay electricity.
Since I’ve put EZ Snap window shades my bill is so much less than my co-worker. My bill was $136.00 compared to over $200.00 for my co-workers.
I’m very happy with my purchase.
EZ Snap® Team - Happy to hear that EZ Snap is saving you some money... thanks for letting us know.
Great product but postage is ridiculous if you just want a few parts.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your feedback Ken. Unfortunately, if we ship by mail, many times Pins will be broken when the shipment arrives, versus shipping by courier. Also, the mail system can take up to 3 weeks in some cases for the shipment to arrive with no way to track the shipment.EZ Snap charges $14.95 on an order of 60 sets. This size shipment costs EZ Snap approx $20 to $22 and we subsidize the shipping cost for our customers.The best time to order extra Fasteners is with a kit... the price per Fastener with a kit is $1.08 and purchases over $225 qualify for free shipping.
EZ snap was easy to use... we put it on the inside of our motorhome front window.
Fits good and we just roll it up out of the way when driving.
Never have to go out in the rain to install.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks Doris... It may be easier to install RV Shades inside, but please keep in mind that Shades must be installed on the outside for maximum heat reduction.
I purchased a snap replacement kit including adhesive for hard-to-attach surfaces. When the shipment arrived, it was missing the adhesive.
Customer service quickly shipped the missing adhesive and an extra one too.
I would highly recommend this product because the product works great and the responsiveness of their customer service.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the feedback Sandra.
Well, having studied ways to reduce the awful heat in my new 5th wheel trailer I first cut some 1" thick silver sided insulation I bought from Home Depot, wonderful results (if you do not want to use a window to look out of!). Then, off to the web where I found EZ Snap.
My request for help on planning size and needs was quickly answered and I received my items a week or less later.
I had studied several YouTube videos and got to work. I did two large side windows one day, the large back one next and finally had time for some smaller ones.
The difference in temperature was remarkable. I will absolutely recommend this product.
We are living in this unit until our new home is built, then we will use it to travel when I retire next year.

EZ Snap® Team - Happy to hear that EZ Snap is keeping your RV cool in Texas.
My experience with EZ Snap was excellent. The sales team (much thanks to Troy) patiently worked with me through multiple iterations on the project.
I found the installation to be relatively simple and straightforward. For the smaller rounded edged windows I created a template and used it to cut out the screens to exact size.
We saw a 15-20 drop in surface temperatures in our RV (dark brown faux leather couch and dining table) A significant and welcome improvement.
We’ve received many positive comments from neighbors. Some haven’t even noticed the change.
Here are pics of the 7 windows we covered with black screen.
This is a picture from the inside looking out. Please note we removed the inner RV screens because the breeze was cut down significantly with both screens in place. It’s still reduced with only the EZ Snap screen in place but it’s acceptable
The following 2 pictures show the use of white screen on 2 of our 3 season room windows. Had to use the 3M snaps because the metal snaps originally purchased interfered with the movement of the sliding windows on the porch.
The following 2 pics show the use of the white screen placed into a standard screen frame. The metal snaps didn’t work because they interfered with the sliding windows. We then used the 3M snaps and although it looked good we found the reduction in ocean breeze to be too much, plus we couldn’t just remove the door screen because the 3M snaps hold the EZ Snap screen away from the surface so bugs could get in. So we removed the door screen from its frame and used the white screen we’d cut and with some effort installed it in the screen frame. If I’d known I was going to do this I would have cut a larger piece of screen and trimmed the edges with a razor knife. All that said I think it came out very nice, very clean looking.
Overall a very good experience. The product is rather pricey so we’re hoping it stays in good condition for the long term.

EZ Snap® Team - Great review and photos Bernard... Thank You.
We purchased EZ Snap for our 5th wheel because we are staying in Yuma Arizona during the summer.
It has made an incredible difference, we are able to keep the RV five degrees cooler since installing EZ Snap.
We used the 3M stick on snaps, which went on easily. I do recommend assembling the base and post portions of snaps before application, it is much easier at a table than on a ladder outside.
I applied stick on snaps one morning and cut and applied material the next morning.
Blocks sun extremely well and we can see out of the windows well.
We believe EZ Snap will pay for itself in two years! Looks great and helps keep RV cooler!
We would highly recommend EZ Snap to keep RV cool and looking great!
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the positive review John. Nice installation!
After 5yrs of messing with modified automotive reflective window shades held to the inside of the windshield with velcro (that only partially helped with the amount of light that came in, but completely obscured our view to the outside and had minimal heat rejection), I finally ordered the EZ snap Direct RV window shade kit.
Ordering was easy, just measured the windshield and cab door windows on my 2007 Haulmark Class 8 conversion and added a little extra for buffer/mis-measurement. I requested that half of my adhesive studs be black and the other half white, which was no problem.
I would recommend ordering an extra primer pen (I ordered two for my install and really should have had 3), as they dry out almost immediately if not being applied.
Order arrived in a timely manner, only to sit in the garage for over a month waiting for a gap in my schedule and appropriate weather to coincide. I installed the adhesive studs the day before I left to go to work for a week and then then the next weekend I was home my wife and I finished installing the shades (I let her wield the scissors for trimming around corners and mounting brackets, she has way steadier hands than me).
I chose to install the windshield studs directly to the glass on the windshield as this would give me the most even surface, allowing for less chance of wrinkling.
On the doors I put the studs around the outside edge of the window opening. We rough cut a slightly oversized piece of mesh for each window to make it easier to position it on the studs, then working from top to bottom and left to right, we got the mesh in place without any excess wrinkling (curved or uneven surfaces add to the challenge) and then marked and trimmed to final shape, readjusted the position of a couple of pins to remove some minor waves from the mesh and finished by snapping on the caps to finish the project.
While we just finished the install today I am already happy with the appearance (look just about as good as the custom fit/sewn mesh shades that my in-laws have on their class A diesel pusher, but substantially cheaper) and ease of install. They limit the light that comes in but still allows us to look out through them, and if we need some extra privacy we still have the fabric curtains that Haulmark installs at build time.
We have now been in our coach for 4.5 weeks and are very happy with them. They provide daytime privacy while still allowing us to see out and provide a substantial temperature reduction in the cab area of our class 8 (semi truck) conversion. They provide enough heat rejection that I am considering purchasing enough to make shades for all of the windows in our coach.
Dave and Jennifer
EZ Snap® Team - Nice work Dave and Jennifer! Thanks for your positive review and photos.
I am pleased with the performance of the product. It has done as advertised and reduced energy use, had foil bubble wrap in window previously and it is very nice to see out of the converted windows now.
Installation of product as instructed resulted in a deficiency of snaps to utilize the mesh. Have two windows (big) and one small one on rig done as instructed. Two other smaller windows with Minimal snaps just to get it on the rig.
--and mesh for the other planned three windows I have no snaps.
I plan on ordering more snaps to install on rest of planned windows and strengthen the minimal ones.
I am a little disappointed with the hardware amount included in the kit.
Installed on an average fifth wheel (Big Country 32 1/2 foot ). If you follow the instructions to have two snaps at the corners of large windows And the 10 inch min. spacing you do not have enough snaps for average RV application.

I cannot write so much about your product because am not bilingual, but i am very satisfied with the product.
I used it to cover the large window back my fifth wheel and the result was very efficient.
I will always give a good comments for that product.
EZ Snap® Team - We appreciate the feedback Pierre.
We are very pleased with our purchase. Installation was fairly easy...
The hardest part is measuring.
And we have noticed a big difference in the inside temp in our unit. We live in extremely hot Las Vegas and wished we had heard about these earlier.
I'm attaching before and after pics on the biggest window we had to cover... Looks pretty good, huh??!!
Jeri & Jim Parker
Las Vegas, NV
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the photos... yes, it does look pretty good.
I purchased the materials to do the windows in our RV that is parked on a permanent site in Silver Springs FL. I covered three windows that get the hot afternoon sun.
These screens have made a world of difference. I am very happy with how they work and the ease of the insulation of the product.
I questioned the 3M snaps holding up so I talked to a representative on the snaps. They explained to me how and why they would hold. That put my mind at ease hearing it from them and not just the company selling the product (EZ Snap).
I worked with Troy and he was there for every phone call and email to answer any questions. He explained everything to me every step of the way. I would highly recommend.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your recommendation John. We appreciate your support.
EZ Snap is a great investment. Cutting my electric bill is something I look forward to.
Our RV is now staying a lot cooler. A/C units not having to work so hard.
Our 2013 Rushmore is a happy camper. Thanks EZ Snap.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your update and photos Gary.
Product works great! Our customers are very pleased with the difference the shades make. Tracy
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks Tracy.
The window screens were used for a 5th wheel rear window and back two windows.
Easy install and maintenance.
I had problems with a washing company knocking off the studs and snaps. Just ordered extra ones.
The window screens are great. We had setting sun in Florida. These screens brought the temperature down 10-15 degrees.
Got sap on the rear one. It's hard to get it off even with denatured alcohol.
Excellent product will recommend to everyone.
EZ Snap® Team - Glad to hear EZ Snap is keeping you cool in Florida.
We give this product a five star rating. It was easy to install a great product. We received it very quick.
Thank you, Cindy
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your positive review!
I love my EZ Snap RV window coverings, and sing their praises to all I meet. I'm stationary for the most part.
I bought enough screening for my all-day sun-side in summer 2017; it cut my electricity bill by 35%.
Recently moved across country and bought screening for the other side and front windshield of my Class A. Sun on the rig all sides now at different times of the day.
My electric bill compared to my neighbour with a similar size rig? $52 less! Plus, the privacy aspect is wonderful.
Easy to pop off and on again for trips, too. You'll love this product, guaranteed worth every penny.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your positive review and photo.
I don't get it. I see nothing but rave reviews for this product. I purchased enough to do all 3 windows on the sun setting side of my 5er, we've only had 70 & 80 degree days here in Oregon and the heat from the slide on the sun side is terrible. I've even had to close my day & night shades on the inside. WASTE OF MONEY AND TIME !!!
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your feedback Ed. Sorry to hear this didn't work out in your case. As suggested in the review, your results are not typical. Many RV's have very little insulation in the slide out walls, roof and floor, so heat from the sun will penetrate those areas and create heat inside the RV.
Thank you EZ Snap for making Sun and UV protection so simple and effective.
Last fall we purchased a new (to us) fifth wheel with a beautiful living area and a wall to wall picture window. Now parked, the window is facing almost directly south with full exposure to a beautiful forest scene but constant summer sun.
Inside shades would certainly block out the sun but the view is lost. EZ Snap was the perfect solution.
The black mesh allows complete see through but blocks the intense sun. Add to that the super easy instal alternatives and EZ Snap the absolute best alternative.
Trim to fit the window size, clean the fibreglass around the edges, attach the snaps (I chose the stick on units) install and voila you have the best of the best.
Combine this quality product with excellent customer service, follow up and prompt shipping and you are dealing with a winner company with a winner product.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks Vern!
Follow this link to watch the EZ Snap RV Shade Review Video from Family Adventures TV...
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the video review.
Great product but when it rains on them you can't see thru them until they dry off
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your feedback Dennis.
Immediately reduced the heat coming through RV windows by 20 degrees.
Easy installation and 3M tape really holds... Really reduces the stress on AC cooling.
Thinking of adding to our bedroom windows to reduce hot summer sun coming in.
Glad I purchased this.
EZ Snap® Team - Thank you Ken.
I have had the RV screens for 3 seasons... My screens have significantly reduced my utility bills. I am so oooh glad I bought them!
EZ Snap® Team - Glad to hear it, thank you.
Cuts down significantly on the heat coming in the windshield area of our coach.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your positive review and photos Fred.
If you are looking for Shading this is it.
The hardest part of the install was cutting screen. I used the 3m primer pen first. My camper is a 32RKTS Puma. I have some adhesives on the window frames and they are working just fine. I put mine 6 inches apart because I am on the bay in Matagorda TX facing west sun.
All in All easy to install. Measure twice cut once.
EZ Snap® Team - Happy to hear the RV Shades are working for you in the Texas sun.
Super product....so easy even a girl can do it!
Yes and I hunt and fish... but have no place as great to hunt as nice and productive you all have.
EZ Snap® Team - Thank you Alice.
Love your product.
This is my second purchase to go ahead and do the remaining windows in the coach.
Your product is easy to install, looks good and very effective at reducing heat inside.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your repeat business Mark.
So happy with the purchase of EZsnap screens and extra products to go with them.
Fast delivery, easy to order and no problems.
Very pleased with the product.
Easy to install and very good instructions.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for letting us know.
This is my third season using the EZ snap window covers for my RV...
These window covers cut about 30 dollars monthly off my summer cooling bills.
I am so pleased that I decided to purchase them.
EZ Snap® Team - Great feedback, thank you.
I just wanted to thank you for helping with my EZ Snap order and send you a few pics of my installation.
I'm very happy with my shades and hope that they prove to be durable and last with no issues.
EZ Snap® Team - Happy to help Paul. Thanks for sending photos!
I am very impressed with EZ Snap. I have been using the materials to cover some of the Windows in my new RV. The outcome is great!
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks Reggi
This is a fantastic product!
Very easy to install and remove for travel.
I put them on two 3' X 5' and a 3' X 6' window on our 5th wheel, shades do exactly as described.
You can stand in the sunshine and not feel any temperature difference from the shade.
I used some of the extra material to cover the sky lights.
Still get the sun but not the heat.
Here in central Florida where it is close to 100° everyday these shades are a great accessory.
The privacy they provide in close quarter camping is an added plus plus.
My wife and I thank you,
R V Nemitz
EZ Snap® Team - Happy to hear the RV Shades are working for you in the Florida heat.
It arrived on time in excellent condition. There were no parts missing and directions were clear and functional and easy to follow.
It's a very lightweight material and was easy to manage. I followed all directions and measured everything 3 times before marking with included pencil and then cutting to size.
I put the stick on snaps on and waited 3 days before attaching screen material.
I put my screen on the large back window of my fifth wheel.
From the inside it does not hinder view in any way. From the outside, you can not see in at all in the daytime. At nite with lights on you can see figures and movement.
The glass is considerably cooler now that I have added screen and I notice a definite difference in inside temperature.
I like the way it looks inside and outside. Very happy with my purchase and may in the future add the fifth wheel skirting.
So far a quality product and would definitely recommend to everyone.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your positive review and photos... we appreciate it!
I saw a review and thought this product would be a good purchase. Instead of ordering online, I called and placed my order with Troy. Had some questions and thought it was best to call. Purchased the products from Troy and during the entire transaction, not one word concerning a Return/Refund Policy. Even upon my receipt which was sent via email, nothing noted on my receipt concerning a Return/Refund policy. After receiving the product, decided that it was not what we wanted, way too much work to install given the number of windows that we have on the toyhauler and had to wait until at least 60 degrees constant which means that as of this writing I could still not have installed. So, decided to return the products. Well, that is when it got ugly. Troy suggested selling to others in RV Park. And, why would I want to do that? I wanted to return the products. Then, told it was a 25% restocking fee. Wow, never mentioned at time of purchase or on my receipt. It is hidden on the website. Not told a word of this at time of purchase. Then, told to lie on the customs form to return the products by Troy. And, now you must ask yourself, why would I do business with this type of company? Can not be honest and truthful upfront. I had to pay nearly $100 to ship the items back. Sent an email to Troy that items have been shipped for a return and not enough an acknowledgement to such email. Not a company that I wish to give my hard earned money too. Stay away. This is my 2nd review and the other one has never been publishes. No doubt the same for this one as he controls what is published.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your feedback Ray. Sorry to hear that you are unhappy with the EZ Snap Return Policy. We take pride in looking after our customers and have a proven track record over many, many years in the business. Our Return Policy is clearly stated here: https://ezsnapdirect.com/returns/ The restocking charges are necessary since each kit is custom built to order based on individual customer needs for their project. Shades are cut to the kit specs, EZ Snap Fasteners and various parts are pulled from inventory, all is packed professionally and promptly shipped via courier. EZ Snap paid the shipping on your order and it is very expensive to ship 72" x 6" x 6" box weighing 35 pounds from the West Coast to Florida. The customs declaration of 'Return, Value $5' is to protect the customer from extra taxes or duties that are not necessary on returns. This procedure is based on past bad experiences where returned items were tagged incorrectly by customs officials at the border, resulting in significant costs to our customers.
Pretty straight forward to install. Even putting onto a windshield with curved surface and curved outline was easy for one person.
Results look like factory item.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for review Jeff.
We had had great success in putting the screens on to the windows of our RV.
The change in comfort inside was amazing.
Thus we ordered more material and fasteners when we got home so that we could cover the windows in the dining area of our house.
These windows are west facing and it gets incredibly hot in the dining room when we want to use it for dinner.
The shades were easy to cut and mount using the EZ Snap fasteners. The result was amazing - the area is now much more useable, and our air conditioning is now coming on less frequently.
There is an added bonus of more privacy - while we can still see our garden, our neighbours can no longer watch us while we eat.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your positive review.
We installed sun shade on our 5th wheel back window and it definitely keeps the RV cooler.
We had enough fabric left to install the sun shade on 2 additional windows.
Product works as stated. Easy installation and removal for traveling.
Would highly recommend this product to anyone who needs a sun shade for their RV.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for recommending EZ Snap
I am sorry it has taken a while for me to give you feedback about my experience with your product, however my 95 yr old mother passed away on Christmas Day and that altered my priorities somewhat. On the positive side, that delay did give me more of an opportunity to ‘test’ the screens in the hot Australian sun.
Firstly, everything arrived safely and in reasonable time through the forwarding facility. The postage did cost around A$200 which I am sure you would agree adds quite a bit to the overall cost of the product.
You probably don’t recall but I was concerned as to how my outward opening windows would be affected by the use of your screens. It wasn’t until I really started to think about it that I realised my situation was even more complicated, as I have louvres. I was determined to find a way to make them work so spent a lot of time thinking before starting!
I found the ‘installation’ instructions very clear and simple to follow. I was pleased with how easy it was to prepare the surface and apply the 3m studs to the motorhome. In the end I decided to keep the corners of the screens square as I didn’t trust my freehand corner rounding!! I am very happy with how my motorhome looks with the black screens on.
The solution I settled on with my need to open the louvre windows when the sun goes down, was to unclip the two sides and the bottom and roll the screen up. Whilst this might seem a bit tedious for some it only takes a few minutes. I do hope however, that your product can withstand the test of time in needing to unclip and reclip each day.
The ability of your screens to reduce window temperature was well and truly tested with my motorhome in it’s current location. We have had several strings of hot days and very warm nights with daytime maximums over 40 degrees celsius. My motorhome is situated on a hill with no shelter, so the number of hours of direct sunlight on the windows is at a maximum. I realise it is a big ask for any screen to cope with these conditions - as I live in the motorhome I soon found that I needed to find a better solution for the extreme weather days, as your screens were not preventing the windows from getting quite warm.
So, I decided to try silver screens on the outside using your EZ Snap system. And I am pleased to say that it worked a treat, with the windows remaining very cool even on the hottest of days. The insulation I chose is just a little thick for your caps to stay firmly attached so I will make some adjustments to make it all work a little better. So, on the days when staying cool becomes more important that enjoying my view I will use the silver screens!!
In summary, I think your EZ Snap system is a winner. Before deciding to give your system a go, I was quoted a dearer price for custom made solar screens for the inside - which I find a waste of time, as they don’t prevent the windows from heating up. Being able to attach silver screens to the outside is a perfect solution and your EZ Snap system enables that to happen.
I am more than happy to share my experience and encourage others to consider your product. I am on quite a few caravan and motorhome forums where keeping cool is very often a hot topic!! I have no doubt people would find their own screen materials in Australia, thus reducing the postage costs enormously, and making your product more affordable — a smaller parcel with just the studs, pins and caps would have much cheaper shipping.
My two screen system, shade and silver, requires more of some of your pins and caps, so I will be in touch to order more, once I have determined if my slight adjustments work.
I hope this feedback has been useful for you.
EZ Snap® Team - Nice Work Pam. Thanks for sending photos of your RV Shades from Australia!
I purchased the EZ Snap screen to help keep our camper cool when the large rear window is facing south when camped. All we had was the accordion style pull down shade and it did not provide any relief inside of the camper when the sun was shining through.
The EZ Snap shade arrived quickly with good instructions and all the tools necessary to install. Sticking the little adhesive buttons to the camper was very quick as was the little pins to fasten to the shade.
Once installed the EZ Snap shade filters out most of the sun yet you can see from inside the camper looking out. Heat entering through the window is drastically reduced and you can feel it immediately. It installs and removes very quickly and is easily stored in the storage area of our camper.
This was a good purchase and we are very happy we did it.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the photo George. Looking good!
We work for the US Forest Service and are stationed in Las Vegas in the summertime!!! So obviously I need something to help our new 2016 Bighorn 5th wheel get through the 110 degree days in the desert! I was searching for some type of window shade or covering.
We had used the standard silver coated window type shades for the inside of the windows in past RVs we had, but the problem is you can't see out of the windows and the heat still gets inside the RV.
I ran across the EZ Snap product and thought I would give it a try, and let me tell you I found the results to be amazing. As soon as I had the first side of our trailer done you could actually feel the difference inside the unit. You can hold your hand on the inside of the window and not feel the heat!
It was extremely easy to install and went faster then I thought it would. Our unit has the new style frameless windows and there was not a lot of info on installing on frameless windows on the internet. So I was a little intimidated at first but the instructions were easy to follow and I found it to be a snap to trim the shade around the window because of the frameless design, I just used the window as a guide for the cutter.
I would be happy recommending these as a great addition to any rv or home especially in a sunny location to help cut energy usage, but especially in a RV to help the inside stay cool and not have the AC unit work as hard.
EZ Snap® Team - Snap on, Stay cool...
It reduced the heat in our RV.
The installation was as easy as advertised.
I would recommend it to anyone with a RV that is out in the sun.
EZ Snap® Team - Nice install Jeff. Thanks for sending in your photo.
Pretty easy to install. Just follow the instructions. 🙂
Used them on our trip in July To Atlanta GA, Huntsville AL, Little Rock AR, Shreveport, and Longview TX before returning to home in FL.
They made an incredible difference. During several high-90 days with NO shade, the RV A/C ran almost constantly but was able to cool our 26' motorhome in the mid-70s.
Impressed with how much sun and heat they block because they are mounted on the exterior of the coach. (We've had bigger RVs with interior sunscreen shades which were not nearly as effective.)
For my little motorhome, I can install and uninstall the shades with the help of a 2-step stool in about 15 minutes. When removed, I just roll up the shades and store them in a bag designed for wrapping paper purchased at "The Container Store." (EZ Snap should consider offering something like this as an add-on at the time of purchase.)
Definitely, EZ Shades were one of the best purchases for my RV made this year. Hope the attached pictures are helpful...
EZ Snap® Team - Happy to hear the RV Shades are working for you. Thanks for the photos!
This is my second time ordering and using EZ Snap products.
We thought moving our RV would solve our summertime overheating, wrong. The day I installed them on our old mounts you could feel and see the difference.
I recommend them to anyone with solar heat gain through your windows, especially the RV market.
Thanks for making our RV cooler,
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your 2nd order Bob.
We just bought a small toy hauler with only 3 windows and the 1 on the door.
I ordered these shades for all windows listed and they literally took me about 30 minutes to cut and install.
Love the look on the travel trailer too.
It really helps cut the sunlight down on the interior.
I will never own another RV without installing these.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks Pam.
EZ Snap® Team - Nice installation Rick! Happy to hear our Shades are working for you.
We installed the EZ Snap self adhesive fasteners on the windows of our fifth wheel RV. It has frameless tinted windows, and we attached the male parts directly to the glass.
The black poppers are almost invisible when the screens are removed for travel.
Installing our screen material was easy and we were able to get crease free screens. We had tried suction cup fasteners previously, but they did not stay put for long especially in windy weather.
We are very satisfied with our EZ Snap system as it substantially reduced the amount of solar heat getting into our RV.
We shall be ordering more for some of the windows at our house.
EZ Snap® Team - We are satisfied when our customers are satisfied. Thank-you.
We used the material to install a drop down shade to our existing awning. When extended, the snaps allow a quick and simple installation to the awning roller to provide a superior "sun shade" for cool occupancy under our awning. And, with the snaps providing quick removal, we retain the quick operation of our factory awning.

EZ Snap® Team - Sounds like a great idea. Maybe you can email us a few photos?
First, the customer service provided was excellent.
I accidentally found this product one week before we were to leave for the desert for three months, so I called and asked if it was going to be possible to get it in time. My order was processed that evening and very quickly shipped. I received it two days before leaving on our trip!
We got it installed easy enough. I would say you need two people to install, when doing a large piece like the full RV windshield. (I rounded the corners off when cutting the screen. I think it looks much better that way.)
The hardest part was deciding exactly where I wanted to stick the snaps.
Our campsite was situated where the windshield never got full sun so I cannot speak to how well it keeps the heat out yet.
It did keep passing campers from seeing inside the RV which allowed us to keep the curtains open all day.
I would add that we had some very strong wind gusts, lots of rain, big temperature difference and the snaps and shade screen stayed on!
We are very pleased with our purchase.
EZ Snap™ Team - Great to hear! Thanks Staphanie.
Purchased product by phoning in my order, speaking with Tony. During this conversation, never knew this company was located in Canada. Discovered when I received my credit card charges where a Foreign Fees was added to my order. With speaking with Tony, never a mention of a "return/refund policy". Upon inspection of my receipt sent via email, no mention of said return/refund policy. Having made thousands of purchases during the years, if there was to be a restocking fee upon a refund/return, buyer was always made a aware and it was noted on sales receipt. Not the case with this company. When I emailed and called, which it took 3 days to respond from my email, I had to call back as I never received a call back, I was informed of this policy. What a way to do business. This is so shaddy to add that in after the purchase. I had to pay which I am delighted to do so to return this product. Then told to state a value of only $5.00 on the Customs Form by Tony. When in fact the value was a whole lot more than $5.00. I would stay stay away from this company. Go else where to purchase a RV Sun Shade. A business that must lie and hide the facts is not one in which I wish to give my hard earned money too. Of course, had to give one star as there was no selection for "zero stars". Now the real test of time, will this review be removed by Tony?
EZ Snap® Team - Sorry that you feel this way Ray. We pride ourselves on top-notch customer service and regularly receive positive reviews from our happy customers.We will try to address the concerns you mentioned in your review. It was Troy who you had been corresponding and talking to on the phone. (There is no Tony here). EZ Snap has warehouses in Canada and the USA and Troy is located in our call center in BC Canada. Regarding the foreign fees on your card, your card company should not be charging you fees like that, and the majority of cards do not charge this type of transaction fee.Our Return Policy is clearly posted on our website here: https://ezsnapdirect.com/support/ There is a link to this page with the return policy on all the pages of our site. We reviewed our records of your contact with us. You called outside of our office hours when the office was closed. At the very latest, our staff responds to emails within 48 hours and phone messages within 24 hours, not including weekends of course, when we are closed. Having said that; had you called during business hours, our toll-free line always has a customer service rep ready to take your call.Restocking charges on large, heavy items are common for most online retailers. Without restocking charges, other customers would have to pick up the tab, by way of higher prices, for those customers who change their minds. In your correspondence to us, you mentioned that you changed your mind on your purchase. Here's what you said to us in your email: “After receiving the product, decided that it was not what we wanted, way too much work to install given the number of windows that we have on the toyhauler and had to wait until at least 60 degrees constant which means that as of this writing I could still not have installed”. As mentioned previously, a restocking charge is designed to keep costs as low as possible for all of our customers. Each kit is custom built to order and includes a wide range of materials and hardware that is assembled, packaged, and shipped within 48 hours of purchase. We hope you can appreciate that restocking charges are there for the benefit of all customers. Please know that product returns cost EZ Snap more than our restocking charges generate.You mentioned that you had issue with our support team recommending putting a value of $5.00 on your return shipment, even though the value of the shipment was obviously more. Although we have explained this to you in past conversations, we will go over this point again for the benefit of those reading this. The reason we suggest putting a value on your return shipment of $5.00 dollars is this: All courier forms are different and we have had customers incorrectly fill out their shipping documents in the past. They have placed the initial purchase price of the item on the form in such a way that customs has billed the shipment as if the customer was selling the item back to EZ Snap. When a return is done this way, sales taxes, duties, and brokerage charges are applied on the full initial purchase price. This can greatly increase the cost of returning shipments, as returns are supposed to be exempt from these fees. The $5.00 value eliminates the chance of this happening, thus saving our customers an extra cost that should not apply on returned shipments.Our goal is to have satisfied customers using EZ Snap products to save energy and improve the comfort of their living spaces. We are hopeful that you now have a better understanding on the concerns you had.
We had an unusually hot 2016 summer even for Phoenix AZ.
The inside of the RV felt much cooler and was easier for AC to keep up. I am very happy that I purchased the RV window shades.
I am an elderly solo-full timer and I had no problems installing the screens.
EZ Snap™ Team - Thank you for taking the time to review EZ Snap. Happy to hear that our Shade Screens made a difference in your RV.
We purchased the 25' window shade kit with white 3M adhesive stud in May, 2015 so have used the windows shades for two summers now. They have proven to be effective in reducing the heat generated by the mid and late afternoon sun in our seven west facing windows. Without the shades, even with our lo-e windows you could feel the heat on the inside of the glass but with the shades in place the glass is cool to the touch. We now live in Campbell River on Vancouver Island, BC however we should have had these on our home in the Okanagan as well where we lived for 20+ years.
Installation was straightforward. The shade material is easy to cut to size and the adhesive studs definitely stick. Removing the shade for winter storage you exert some force on the studs and none of them budge. Two summers of 30 C+ and two winters of some sub-zero temperatures and they remain in place. We store the shades in winter by labelling which window they come off and mark the lower right corner with masking tape making it easy to reinstall the following summer (we remove the masking tape on installation). For winter storage we stack the shades and roll them on the cardboard roll the shade was shipped on, wrap the whole thing in plastic and store in our heated crawl space.
As an added bonus the shades provide daytime privacy into our living areas without having to close or tip blinds so we can still enjoy the view into our backyard.
We are very pleased with our purchase and would recommend the product as an easy do-it-yourself project for anyone looking to reduce the sun's heat on their windows, with the added benefit of daytime privacy and preserving views.
EZ Snap™ Team - Thanks for your great review Julie. Glad to hear that your EZ Snap Shades are working for you.
I have 3 large windows in my 5th wheel. These were my primary concern and reason for buying the EZ Snap product. Michigan in the summer, Florida in the winter.
The air conditioner struggled to cool the coach to a comfortable degree on hot days.
No problem since I installed the screens, which was very easy. I removed them prior to a move in about 5 minutes. The reinstall at the new location took even less time.
I absolutely could not be more pleased.
My large windows have crank out louvers on the bottom about 8 inches high. I stopped my fasteners a little above the louvers and they don't flap even in high winds. I would be happy to send anyone pictures if they would like to see what they look like.
Good Morning Guys!
Just a short note email to say how much we appreciate the excellent job your product did of outfitting our motor-home with window shades.
It paid off in spades, our unit looks great.
As promised I have attached a picture for your album.
