Video Transcript for Hopkins RV Covers - Windshield Covers - HM17529 Review

Speaker 1: Today, we're going to take a look at the Hopkins Arctic Guard Heavy-Duty Windshield Cover for winter or summer protection. Basically, when the weather piles it on, or the sun turns up the heat, we've got you covered with this heavy-duty windshield cover that will install on the outside of your vehicle. I do have it folded in half. You can see, if you unfold it, it's very large.Basically, in the winter, you'll have no more scraping of snow or ice. All you have to do is just remove the cover and you're ready to go. In the summertime, it'll help keep the interior vehicle cool and protect your interior from any UV damage.It is a universal fit for most vehicles.

Size on it is, when you extend, open it up, it's 73-inches long by about 40-inches tall. It is a lightweight vinyl material, almost like an umbrella-type material. If you notice, on each end, they do have these on elastic straps, these mirror pockets that will fit over your side view mirrors. They do have a mesh side on them. What's nice about this is when you fold this up and to store it, you can fold it small enough that it will fit into one of these mirror pockets, and it's easy to carry around.This will easily install on the outside of your windshield.

Just open it all the way up. First thing you want to do is install the mirror covers over your side view mirrors. Once you get those installed, then just lay the over part over the windshield. Go to the inside, and on the very top, you'll see these elastic straps with hooks on them. Open the doors, run these to the inside, then just hook these together so it will hold it all into place.I don't know if you noticed, on the outside, when this is installed on the outside, you have these elastic straps, buckles and straps, that you can pull to adjust the fit of the cover.

If it's a smaller vehicle, you can adjust it in to get a little bit tighter fit. You can adjust them to cover for a perfect fit. Saves you a lot of time and effort.That should do it for the review on the Hopkins Arctic Guard Heavy-Duty Windshield Cover for winter or summer protection.

Fits my 1999 GMC Sierra perfect. I bought it to keep tree debris from collecting in the vent area between the hood and windshield. Works great.


Comments
Working very well. Does exactly what I wanted it to do.

I purchased this for my husband as a stocking stuffer in December of 2015. He has used it in every snow storm since and really likes how easy it is to deal with at 4:00 am with freezing rain, wind and snow coming from every angle.

I think this is a must have for anyone who parks outside during the winter months. He was using a tarp of sorts and that would stick to the windshield every so often...and that was not exactly helpful.

Really cool product at a perfect price. Thank you.


Comments
He still loves it! And, better yet, it is still working perfectly! Your products are so good. :
Raleigh S - 12/15/2017


by:

This is a product that will save a great deal of time and effort.... Not to mention cold hands, and other body parts. The actual cover could be better put together, some of the stitching and trim did not hold up. I do make an effort to place this on my windshield at the end of the day, this saves a bunch of time and frustration in the early morning hour as I head out to work..... Just remember to turn off your wipers and turn on the defrost if you have a remote start.




by:

Love it! While designed to keep from scrapping Ice / Frost - I use my cover to protect my windshield from spray and film build-up that occurs on Oil & Gas well locations.

I’ve add ~6 small magnets to the top edge of the cover to help hold it in place better in the wind. Have washed the cover twice - once by hand and once in the washer on delicate.

Other than adding the magnets - it rates 5 out of 5




by:

The service from eTrailer was excellent as always. My opinion of the windshield cover is mixed. I have an Excursion so I searched for the largest cover I could find. This one barely covers the lower and middle of my windshield. The top of the windshield is not covered, this can be a problem when it snows. I had to pull and stretch to get the cover over the mirrors and am afraid that when the temperatures go sub-zero it will not stretch without ripping. This cover is simply not made for bigger trucks like mine.




by:

Ordered several for Christmas presents in 2020. Worked well as advertised.




by:

Haven't installed it, but ordering through eTrailer is an exceptionally good process. Free shipping and no tax made this a much better value than going through local retail. Shipping was a few days and delivered to my door. Research through local suppliers requires them to order model-specific products and it takes them a few days and at least two trips to their store -- this is a much better process. The instructional videos, reviews, and product details are spot on and more helpful than the manufacturers' site. Plugging in my vehicle loads up recommendations that fit my vehicle -- other retailers make you use filters and I'm less confident the product is specific for my make, model vehicle.




by:

It's a little odd to put on, but it has good coverage on my 2007 Honda Element. Covers both rear views, which is important as they are not heated and a pain to remove ice from. Saves me from a lot of scraping windows in the winter.




by:

The Mirror covers need to be wider with adjustable straps. The one I received is a tad to small/tight. I cover the passenger mirror and scrape the drivers side so I don't have to walk around the p/up. My p/up is a 2005 Ford F150. My brother had the same problem. His p/up is a 2006 Ford F350.




by:

Very thin material. Stitching is also rather week. Mine came with the edging coming off due to week stitching. Also, it did not fit over my large towing mirrors of the Nissan NV3500.




by:

I would rate this product as fair. I expected my windshield cover to be heavier. I ordered this product because a co-worker had one from a few years ago. However, the one she had was made out of a heavier fabric - a canvas like material.

I do like the way the cover goes beyond the windshield wipers. I would have a problem with my wipers freezing due to snow and ice collecting at the base of the wiper.




by:

I believe it will work, but weather is just now getting bad. I miss having magnets and door flaps. Easier for me to work with instead of elastic bands that hook inside and take time. Time of essence when 10 below and 40 mph winds.




by:

The item was bought for a different vehicle than was listed. My mirrors were too large to fit in the pockets so I tied the corners of the cover to the door handle which worked fine. With the wind and sun that we have I do not think that it will last another 2 years.




by:

Ordered for my prius...WAY too big, flaps on sides are useless because the entire windshield section overlaps into the car on both sides. Thin, cheap material. Can accomplish a much better solution with a plain pc of black nylon material. Then I had to pay to return it!




by:

The product is well made and does the job well. For my vehicle it is too large. I have made it work but a little hassle to install. No fault of the product just a very small windshield. Jeep Wrangler. Knowing what I know now , would I buy it again, probably. For the price it is a quality product.




by:

The more I learn about using my cover on my 2007 Chevrolet HHR, the more I love it! I have gone from installation from a couple of minutes down to seconds it feels like! So quick and easy! There is a spot on one of the mirror pockets where the seam seems weak, but I am monitoring it.




by:

Thanks for the attention to my order and the prompt delivery. We had our first big snow (big for Oklahoma City) a couple of nights ago, window covers worked great. Very pleased with them so far.




by:

I've been using this for a month now. Covers the windshield like they said it would and keep the snow and frost off. The product is very thin (garbage bag thickness), so I'm not sure about durability. So far, it has stood up to the elements and serving the purpose. I gave it 3 stars because of the thickness.




by:

I am extremely happy with the fast delivery and quality products I have purchased at etrailer.com




by:

This a so so product . Very thin . It fits my 1998 Dodge Ram 2500 perfect. Haven't had a chance to use it but hope it does fine . Like i said it is very flimsy material don't know how long it will last.




by:

I absolutely LOVE it!! Super easy to put on and take off! The best windshield cover!




by:

Works well to keep elements off of windshield. It doesn't like extreme cold and will rip at sewed boarder and elastic straps.




by:

I thought the material would be a little heavier. I just put it on and like the style and shape but not impressed with the material. Light and the corner tore from high winds on the left mirror.




by:

It received or windshield covers in great condition and very quickly ...probably only waited a couple days.




by:

Well made but the fabric is a little flimsy. Wasn't quite large enough for my Toyota Tundra, but is a good value.

  • Material and Installation of Hopkins Arctic Guard Windshield Cover
    The Hopkins Windshield Cover part # HM17529 that you referenced is made of a heavy duty nylon material with sewn edges.

It has straps on the front of the cover too which allow you to take up any extra slack if the vehicle happens to be a bit narrower.

  • Windshield Cover for a Ford F-350
    The best option to fit the windshield (and side mirrors) on a Ford F-350 is windshield cover # HM17529. It is adjustable but has a max size of 73" Long X 40" tall. The other covers are simply too small for a large truck. The mirrors may be an issue if they are the design that is taller than wide because the covers are designed for mirrors that stick out further than they are tall. I have linked a video review of this cover for you.

    The Camco Windshield Wiper Wedges CAM45456 have been discontinued but I do have another solution to help keep your wiper blades in ship shape when you have your vehicle parked in the elements. If you were needing them for a storage situation to keep the pressure off of your wipers then unfortunately we don't have anything that could be used as a substitute.

  • Available Windshield Cover to Fit a 2017 Ford E-Series Cutaway
    We do carry a few windshield covers that will fit your RV, but the ADCO cover that you referenced, # 290-2402, will not on the 2017 Ford E-Series Cutaway. The covers we offer are not custom-fit, but are universal fit in design and are really designed to cover the windshield to protect from the winter elements. A cover like the Hopkins Heavy-Duty ArcticGuard Snow and Ice Windshield Cover, # HM17529, will not only protect during the winter months, but can be used to block out the sunshine...

  • Recommended Sunshield for Vehicles in Hot Sunshine Areas
    The Hopkins Heavy-Duty ArcticGuard Snow and Ice Windshield Cover # HM17529 is a universal fit that is 70 inches wide by 40 inches tall. The black color will attract heat so I recommend instead using a sunshield like the Camco SunShield Reflective Motor Home Window Cover - 62" x 30" # CAM45164. This will give you the best protection from the hot Arizona sun.

  • Preventing Rock Chips and Road Debris Damage when Flat Towing a Vehicle Behind an RV
    Hopkins Heavy-Duty ArcticGuard Snow and Ice Windshield Cover # HM17529 would provide some protection against rocks but it is not meant to be used while the vehicle is moving despite the fact that the RV would be blocking most of the wind. It would ultimately result in damage and/or loss of cover. I recommend taking a look at our selection of vehicle guards and related parts, see link. Or you might also consider some hitch mounted mud flaps such as # RM-4400-102.

    We have great products designed for exactly what you are looking for, but the Hopkins part # HM17529 that you referenced is only designed for snow and ice so it may not prevent damage from debris.
