Several inches of snow demonstrates the benefit of the
window visors.  They allow me to open the windows about
an inch for ventilation, letting air in while keeping the rain
(and snow) out. 
I got mine on ebay for less than $50.  Installation was easy.
Thank you to everyone who responded to my questions about which topics to address next.  I've taken a few pictures and outlined some blogs.  But, have yet to put together a full article that's ready to post.  As a preview, I included a couple of pictures here showing the window visors I installed on my Prius RV. 

Lately my time has been spent supporting my husband who is fighting kidney cancer.

I hope to get back to this blog after the holidays ... maybe sooner.  In the meantime, I'll be helping John decide on his long-term survival activities and preparing for Christmas with him and our family.

  1. It was nice to see your post! Have a happy Christmas with your husband, John, and your family. I look forward to more posts in the future.

  2. What is the purpose of the visor? I also have an '09 Prius. Hattie From Mass.

  3. Hattie, The visors keep the rain and snow from getting inside the car when I roll down the windows down about an inch to get some ventilation. Hope that helps. Suanne

  4. Suanne...I just found your blog thru VanDwellers group update today. I've only gotten through a few posts but I wanted to tell you I absolutely love your blog. THANK YOU so much for the detailed information and photos of how you RV in your Prius!!! I aquired a school bus last spring which I began converting and will move into it permanently this spring. I've already learned so much from your blog. I'll add your husband to my prayers for fast and complete healing. Please keep blogging :o)

  5. Hi Suanne! Found your blog via the Womengosolo links. You are one bold and creative lady! We share a passion for National Parks and, I too, used to car camp.

    Hope you are back on the road doing what you love soon! Kim
