SureShade, a supplier of patented retractable sunshade systems for the marine industry, has expanded to the RV segment with the debut of its outdoor-grade retractable sunshade systems during last week’s RVX: The RV Experience.

Building on 10 years of experience outfitting boats in the marine industry, SureShade enters the RV segment with a market-proven sunshade product that is thoroughly field-tested to stand up to the elements of harsh outdoor environments, according to a press release.

Other design features include:

— The ability to withstand winds up to 50 mph (requiring no wind sensor).

— The ability to camber components for aesthetics and rain run-off.

— A self-supported framework with no annoying side mounting poles.

— A sturdy stainless steel framework that is virtually indestructible

The SureShade RV showcase also featured some of the first RV installations on custom Mercedes Sprinter vans that included integrations with RoamBuilt roof racks.

The versatility of SureShade RV applications covers a variety of recreation vehicles from motorized homes and campervans to towable and specialty trailers, said Dana Russikoff, SureShade co-founder. “As the marine and RV industries continue to converge, taking our expertise in retractable sunshade systems on boats to recreation vehicles is a natural next step in SureShade’s growth as a leader in sunshade systems for outdoor recreation.

“The RVX event confirmed that the RV industry is ready for a premium outdoor-grade shade system that will elevate the typical RV awning experience.”
