Depending on the angle of the sun, reflections on the windshield and side windows make seeing out difficutlt at times. Windshield bad but not terrible however, the side windows can at times be terrible. Is there any solution to this problem? Night time with head lights etc is the worst. We have a 27 ft Winnebago Vista Class A.

Polarized sunglasses for daytime and/or polarized driving glasses like this for nighttime.

As for the windshield, We made a dark grey dash cover out of trunk liner material. The light colored dash reflected horribly. Haven't noticed side window reflections but we did have window tint installed right when we got our RV. Also repurposed the curtain for front bunk privacy and put MCD roller shades on the sides (and power shade on windshield). Being able to pull side roller down helps immensely when the sun is coming in the side. No more one handed driving holding a brochure to keep the sun out of our eyes.

I have had issues with the drivers side window and I have thought about using a visor type thing I have seen them use for children in the back seat of a car that suction cups to the window.

Use roller shades for side windows and attach a string long enough to easily reach while seated. For windshield use power shades with switch located to easily reach while seated.

I avoid night time driving cause of this issue, I wear daytime tinted driving glasses for the glare and reflections during the day.
