Help keep your RV warm or cool with vent pillow

By Bob Difley

Roof vents are a terrific feature of RVs. They allow a flow of air to circulate through the RV, light to help brighten the interior, and a vent with a cover can be left open in a storm for air flow without letting the rain in.

But roof vents also have their drawbacks. During hot and cold days and nights, without insulation they are like having a hole in the roof that lets unwanted heat and cold in when you don’t want it, or heat out when you’re trying to stay warm inside.

However, the Sunshield Vent Pillow helps to resolve some of these comfort zone dilemma.

Vent-pillowIt snaps into the vent hole on the inside (no need to remove the outside vent cover) where the side pressure keeps it in place even while traveling. The upward facing surface is covered with a reflective material to reflect the sun’s hot rays and the three inches of foam help to stop heat transfer both in and out.

Fitting all standard 14-inch roof vents, it is durable, snaps easily into place, is easy to remove, and easy to store. It will keep your RV cooler in the Summer and warmer in the Winter.

You can find the Sunshield Vent Insulator on Amazon.
