Hi all. Does anyone have a yard or so of Reflectix you would be willing to part with? I'm doing window shades and don't want to buy a 25' roll.

Would one of the large vehicle windshield covers work?? I think they even make one for semi-truck use. Gotta truck stop in your area??

That's a great idea, Donna, but all the ones I looked at were way too stiff. To roll the shade it needs to be much thinner.
I don't want to buy an entire roll for this project, so I may end up with something else entirely.

I'm wondering whether or not anyone has lined their trailer with this material and then put foam over it for insulation? Would it even be worth the time and additional work? I was looking for something like Reflectix last night to line the Roman shades that I'm planning on making for the Campster but had to settle for "black out" material. Where does one buy Reflectix anyway?
Thanks!

Lisa, I will probably use black out too. Was hoping to try the reflectix. I can buy it in two dimensions at my local hardware store (lowes). The downside is it comes in 24' rolls. Way too much for four little egg windows. Would love to see pictures of your finished shades.

Or maybe we could share a roll.

We purchased our reflectix at the local Menards. It wouldn't hurt to ask at the building supply counter at the local stores to see if they have any damaged rolls. Sometimes you can pick up this stuff discounted rather than pay full price. We also used some of the left over stuff to make winter cones for the rose bushes.
