I got it last December and installed it today. Took about 1 hour's worth of work for two of us.

Cool. I ordered some and was going to have them installed on my first trip, at the end of May. Now I hope I will be able to go

I guess we are "boring" as well.
But, it wasn't boring while installing them.:)
Marilyn & I did the installation while on our Florida trip, prior to the Tampa show.
I know I'm slow & a bit anal at times, so it took us about 3 hours to do the complete installation of the windshield & both side windows. Since she was an "analyst" in the working world, she had to analyze each magnet installation, and the test fit.o_O Which turned out to be a good thing, as we had to slightly adjust the magnets in the "pockets", because of the windshield seal, but when finished, we two old "rookies" did a pretty good job. We made a pretty good team, and thankfully, she has small hands and was able to install the magnets in the tight spaces around the top of the windshield!👏
Though "boring", we do like our Magna Shades , and they look nice when installed! In my opinion, a great product!👍

It does take some time to install it right. After we had on the window with 20 trips up and down the ladder and all the wrinkles out we realized that we were about 1 inch low. Took us a couple of hours to get installed but we are retired with lots of time on hands with the current virus alerts.

We just drove to the factory, slept overnight at their parking lot and they installed the whole thing in the morning.

Pro
Graphics looks cool
Inside is white and brightens up the coach
Cons
Inside is white and gets dirty easy
Have to be careful how you store it so as not to damage graphics. Rol it up with graphics are protected from rubbing against something. We roll ours on a large pool noodle and store the pole in the center hole then place it in the storage bag.

Buly,
We got ours in December! Was told they do not do installations between December & March, due to weather!
Thus, we installed it in Florida, in January!😊
Actually would have preferred that Magna-Shade installed it!

We bought ours last year and live in Texas so we use them 8+ months a year. Big fan of them.

I never thought their install work is seasonal?

This is what he told me when I ordered it; as I was going to stop by there & have them install them on my way home, at the end of January.
Since they wouldn't do the install....had them shipped to me, & we installed them in the warm Florida weather!

Just order one thru the FMCA (Sunset Saguaros) virtual vendor hall page on Facebook. The rally was cancelled so FMCA put a Facebook page up for vendors and members. I'm hoping to receive it before May 11 as we have a trip (PLANNED ??). I sent them a picture for our custom graphic design. Hoping it works.
