Rain/Wind Deflector

I've found 2 wind deflectors for my 2017. Both are at Eurocampers. I'd like your opinion. I prefer to leave the front windows down a couple of inches when sleeping. I want these to keep the rain out.

The first one is a no brand name, light tinted gray, sticks on the outside of the window channel: $70.
The 2nd is Mopar brand (even though I can't find them at the Mopar site), dark tinted gray, sticks on the outside of the window channel: $70.

Probably just copies of each other but I'm not sure. Any others or options I should be aware of???

You can find some for the 14 and 15 that slip inside the window frame (non-stick'em).
They may fit your year.
Good luck

I saw those but nothing that goes in the window frame for a 2017. Must be different.

Then their catalog is 3 years out of date! The ones that go in the window channel are for the 2014 model only. But - I emailed them just in case

I did get the in-channel ones 2 years ago. They really slowed down the window movement alot.
Even tripped the circuit breaker on the passenger side a few times.
So, i took them out. Instead of sending them back, I cut off the down sections and just 3M double stick taped them to the outside above the window.
Been working great for past 2 years.

FWIW - Just got the response back from Eurocampers. The 2014 will not fit the 2017.

I would just go to chain autoparts stores and look for short straight ones thats long enough to span the window and stick them on. Unless you must have in channel. My In channel, did cover the vertical side, BUT with the window lowered enough to utilize the vertical gap, then the horizontal is down too far, and the rain comes in.

I was able to get these from MOPAR for my 2015 136". Perfect fit. Pay attention to the sequence of instruction steps as it uses that super powerful 3M adhesive. $75.

There must be a change between the 2014/2015 and the 2017. Eurocamper says the 2014 will not fit the 2017 so I'll assume that your link to the 2014/2015 deflectors will not fit. Thanks for trying!
