The Koger Sunshade was developed to provide protection from the sun while flying an airplane that has a large bubble plastic canopy like the RV-6, RV-7, RV-8, RV-9, RV-9A and many other types of aircraft.

Installation Types

Tape Application
If you are purchase a Small, WIDE, Large, RV-4, or RV-8 Sunshade, it will attach with double-stick tape. This tape has been used on the Koger SunShades for more than 15 years and has proven to last and remain securely attached to the canopy while having no structural impact. It is good to 300 degrees farenheit, so remains attached securely even in hot, sunny climates.

If you purchase the RV-Slider or Super Slider shade, the front fabric panel will attach to the canopy cross bar with Velcro dots. This has proven to be a reliable and secure method of attaching the SunShade around the canopy handle.

RV-Sliders, Super Sliders, and some custom sunshades attach to steel tubes using small screws. The screws are secure and easily installed with the installation kit provided.


  • Retractable to front or rear.
  • Lightweight (9oz. for side by side RV models)
  • Install in 1/2 to 1-1/2 hours depending on the model.
  • Makes instruments more visible, and the cockpit more comfortable.


This thing is great! Should have ordered one years ago. Easy to install, Easy to use. Keeps the greenhouse effect from the canopy down on a hot day.

So glad I bought this shade! I love my bubble canopy and I have great ventilation so heat isn’t the issue. I can’t read my iPad, even on a cloudy day.! This solve the problem, even on the sunniest day. It really cuts the heat down too. Fits together like a Swiss watch, very well made. The installation is not difficult, just take your time. Bending the center rail to match the contour of your canopy is easy, go slow. I used a piece of string, stretched over the canopy, to make my center line, followed by electrical tape, then gently bent the rail. Worth every penny!

I purchased the wide tip-up sunshade for my Sonex OneX. The wide shade is designed for side-by-side Sonex aircraft (Sonex, Waiex, Xenos) but it fit the OneX just fine. Very easy to install, just follow the 2 page instruction sheet. Easy to open and close in flight. Highly recommend.

The shade was easy to install, came with the drill and tape. Good quality materials and makes the cabin a delight to sit in on a sunny day. Would recommend.

It took about an hour to install it. It was not difficult and I got very good sun protection with the super slider. I like that it keeps the cockpit and instrument panel cooler when its sitting on the hot ramp as well.

I put this Koger Shade on my Vans RV-7A Tipup canopy. Fits well. Goes on easily. The sticky tabs seem really strong. I used the wider model and glad I did.
