There are these stretchy screens now that fit over the door frame itself, allowing the window to open while keeping bugs out. I think it's meant as a sun shade. In any case, they're cheap generic products you can even get on amazon and skip the custom fitting

u/-poopsicle · 26 pointsr/vandwellers

It's actually real easy. When I built the bed I purchased [these] ( off of Amazon. They provide some privacy, keep the sun out, and most importantly, allow us to let breeze through the windows while keeping bugs out.
Additionally, I purchased [this] ( to black out the front. Both items have been perfect for camping so far!

u/SurrealEstate · 19 pointsr/camping

Great recommendations. A nice addition to the window vent kits, as it also blocks out some light and keeps insects from finding their way in.

u/kurtthewurt · 18 pointsr/DIY

I camp in my car sometimes too, and the dome light attracts mosquitoes, so I've gotten some of these. The best way I can describe them is like pantyhose for your car doors. They're a mesht that stretches over the top of the door and cover the whole window area on both sides like a screen. They filter light and bundle up into a small bag.

u/brdude · 9 pointsr/XVcrosstrek

Someone else on here pointed me to these last year. Totally worth the money.

I also just bought a 1.5” thick double camping pad to replace the mattress to leave a little more head room for the gf and I but have yet to test it. Will post on here when I do.

u/conor_af · 6 pointsr/priusdwellers

The easiest and best solution IMO is a removable screen that covers the whole window by going over the top of the door. I am amazed that I almost never see them suggested on here:

They are $20 for a set of 2, require no assembly or otherwise need to be “made” from multiple components, provide privacy (people can’t see in but you can see out pretty well), you can open the windows as much or little as you want, and they pack away into a tiny pouch (all 4 of my shades take up a space about half the size of a loaf of bread and can be stored anywhere).

u/KingFishTrick · 6 pointsr/ElectricForest

I sleep out of my car and these are the greatest thing ever.


They keep all the bugs out and when combined with smoker vents you have a vented waterproof sleep setup. I bought them for festivals and ended up using them regularly. I dont even take them off in the summer because its nice leaving the windows cracked with no fear of insect visitors when I return. The pup likes em too because the windows go all the way down now.

u/startingoveragainst · 3 pointsr/carcamping

I bought these (or something like it that fit my Rav4); on top of tinted rear windows and a blanket stretched across the front seats, it feels pretty private.

u/bsullgrim · 3 pointsr/XVcrosstrek

The ones I ordered were generic one size fits all

They fit great width wise but they have a little extra material height wise but it just scrunches up at the bottom of the window. No problem

u/mr-maniacal · 2 pointsr/subaru

I have ShadeSox on my 2011 Forester and they fit, no problem...
I bought these exact ones, and they are actually a little big.

u/greenpotatoes9 · 2 pointsr/Mommit
u/rhetto · 2 pointsr/ToyotaTacoma

Never thought to use it for that. My wife got a two pack to keep the sun out of our son's face when he's in the back seat. She gave me the extra. I kept the windows up when driving on the trail, so I can't comment on its effectiveness in keeping dust out. But it's a cheap alternative to tinted windows if you got a kid!

u/homescrubb · 2 pointsr/vandwellers

I got this ALPS Mountaineering sleeping pad from amazon. Its self-inflating and very reasonably comfortable. A 12v fan is also nearly essential for muggy summer nights. Lastly, these window socks are awesome in that they let you keep your windows down without bugs getting in.

u/toystoriegirl · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

Not OP but I have these:

They cover the windows entirely so it's definitely darker in the back, but also a pain for trying to actually see through (like checking blind spots). Can roll the windows up and down all day long though!

u/ThrowAwayAcct0000 · 1 pointr/news

I've found these to be very helpful if you need some air, but don't want to turn on the AC (because of keys in the ignition could get you a DUI), but you don't want to roll down windows (because of bugs). I use them for camping, but they would work here too!

u/Flatline2962 · 1 pointr/camping

Bought these the other day. They're what people on the /r/xvcrosstrek sub suggest.

u/PhiladelphiaCollins3 · 1 pointr/vandwellers

I just bought some mesh window covers for getting some ventilation and keeping out bugs while camping in my suv. They fit over the entire top half of the door frame and are black which helps with blocking anyone from easily seeing in the windows. The downside is that they're not very secure and wouldn't be difficult to move out if the way so I would be careful urban camping.

And I've been putting a lot of thought into this myself recently, and I'm not sure there's a good way to stay cooler during the day other than putting something like reflectix in most of the windows , which definitely isn't stealthy. Maybe get that silver looking window tint and reflectix wouldn't be noticeable behind it.

u/Kickedintheshin · 1 pointr/XVcrosstrek

I built a sleeping/cooking platform for the back of my crosstrek and I am about 6'2 and I just fit with the front seats as far forward as they go. So you guys should fit just fine. Getting something like the Yakima 16 skybox (what I have on mine) helps a lot with gear storage. If you are going to sleep in your car in the summer you are probably going to want the windows down so recommend these: They fit the back doors perfectly, keep the bugs out, give some privacy and are some defense against minor rain.

I had fun coming up my build/set up so I say get creative and good luck!

u/NewtonGimmick · 1 pointr/DogCare

You can try something like this. It'll block out some sun/heat/mosquitos/etc and let you keep the windows down. You just slide em on over the door.

I would also suggest some sort of seat belt. These buckle into a normal seat belt on one end and the other end you attach to a harness (do NOT attach it to a collar unless you want a dead/severely injured dog if you get into an accident or need to hit the brakes hard).

u/dompybear · 1 pointr/daddit

I have a 3/4 ton dodge and I bought These and they fit like a glove. I have a crew cab too if that helps.

Edit: you said rear window, woops. I don't even bother with rear because I have a topper! Sorry!

u/Zaporah · 1 pointr/vandwellers

My bf and I slept in a regular size prius for 2.5 weeks this summer. Just put the back seats down so it was flat and used backpacking sleep mats and sleeping bags and a pillow. Was as comfy as my bed! So any of those should be fine.

I would recommend just barely cracking your windows for air flow and either getting a sun shade or parking strategically so you aren't woken up by the sun. At that time of year I don't think you need to worry about the heat at least :-)

Also if you ever do it more long term these were an amazing purchase. Kept the sun out, bugs out, privacy and air flowing! And super easy to pack down.

u/catwithlasers · 1 pointr/beyondthebump

These have made a huge difference in the temp of my car, plus they're great in that you can open the window unlike the suction cup kind. If you order them, make sure you check the "other sellers" option and pick the ones that are more expensive and available through Amazon, because the lesser expensive ones are cheap knockoffs. (They do take some getting accustomed to, as they are not super easy to see through.)

I haven't made it yet, but I'm going to use a dryer hose (vinyl, not aluminum) to rig a pipeline from one AC vent to the backseat, to make sure cool air gets back there faster.

u/DriverFL · 1 pointr/Honda

Just got it this week after an accident in my 1994 Acura Legend.

First Honda for me, and first car made in the 21st century (previously also had a 2008 Chevy Cavalier).

Wanted to share with you all and ask about best (frugal) accessories to keep this car tip top for years to come. So far I've gotten:

  • Elite Seat Shield- I play a lot of basketball and go the the gym regularly, so want to avoid damaging the seat.

  • Armor All Rubber Mats- for everyday use and especially for ease of cleaning when I bring sand in from the beach

  • Shade Sox in lieu of tinting until I can save a little money to afford it

  • Jumo Windshield Shade- to keep the car cooler and protect the interior parked in the bright Florida sun.

    I also plan to get

  • Ultra Gauge for real-time MPG monitoring

    Any other basic recommendations. I'm also open to learning how to properly and regularly wash and wax the car to retain the paint and re-sale value down the road, and have read a few threads on that, such as this Wiki post here.

    Any other good recommended (easy for the beginner) resources you can suggest. This is the first time I've spent more than $1k on a car (~$7500), and want to protect and preserve the investment.

    Thanks /r/Honda.

I read another comment where someone advised you to make sure your kid runs around during stops. That is great advice. I don't know if your little one can walk yet but lots of exercise to get them nice and tired is a good idea.

I also read that you nurse. I have become quite proficient at sitting in the back and nursing my baby while he is strapped into his car seat. That is a god send. You don't have to pull over and it's a great comforting tool. I keep a towel, scarf in the back to shield us from other drivers.

Forgot to say my car has tinted windows but my old car didn't. I found those [shade sox] ( things very helpful.

u/N_Rage · 1 pointr/vandwellers

Found them on amazon:

They are made by a company called shade sox, though there probably are some cheaper ones available.
It might be an advantage to look for ones that are bigger than your windows to cover them fully,mine were about 1/2 inch too short and I'd rather have had bigger ones.
