Tinted Windows and fading

Does anyone know how much UV protection the windows offer in regards to the upholstery?I see that a number of folks have chosen sunbrella fabric.Does the fabric that ETI offers fade over time?

When not is use or traveling, I always keep the shades down. Anything will fade, if you allow enough UV exposure. I have the standard fabric that ETI offers, no fading after a 18 months.

I love the fabric I bought for Ten Forward and protect it by pulling the shades down when not in use + flipping the cushions that rest against the wall to the vinyl side and lay those over the top of the other cushions.

Yup! Is there vinyl on the back for condensation reasons or cost savings?

I believe it's for wear and tear.

Cheers

On our Starcraft, we were told the cushions were vinyl backed so you could flip them if you had wet swimsuits on, and I believed it.
