Karl, we don't use sunscreens in our coach, my wife uses spring tension rods for our windshield and has hung curtains from them, gives us privacy and still enables us to see out of the coach, the curtains are hung 20 inches from the top of the windshield, she used the same principle to hang the curtains from the side windows.

Karl, we use Prompt RV Sunscreens. They are EZ on'off with no snaps or twist grommets and generally can be done by one person standing on the groun. Exceptions. in a wind wife pitches in or if campsight slopes downward in front at a steep angle I have had to get the ladder out.

You see these advertised in Motor Home and FMCA Mags. They are in Tampa area and have most MH's already pre-measured; thus all you need to do is call discuss color, make/mdl. and give them credit card #. This is our 2nd set from Prompt as we had them on an '02 coach and we also got them for our '04 DSDP which has a much taller and wider windshield where the old one would not fit. Good luck, Ken Roberts...

got ours from Prompt, also. They have been easy to apply, without help, and have never fallen off in use. A phone call and a CC was all that was needed, and the service was excellent.

TO: Karl;

I've used the sun screen that mount on inside of windows and are held in place with suction cups. They cut down sun and provide more privacy and you can still see out.

MOST IMPORTANT== you don't have to go outside, get a ladder , stretch or make holes in the rig.

I've use them on 3 different rigs.

Hope this info helps. Contact RVUPGRADES or the rv toy store for availablity.

Thanks=====AJBJRVERS

Good choice! We have the Prompt screens and I think they are the way to go. Had the snap on screens on our previous coach- they did the job but required the use of the ladder to put them up. The Prompt are much easier, therefore, they get used more frequently.

Just bought and used our new Prompt Sunscreens. They are excellent, easy to install, and noticably reduce UV and to some degree heat. We are on the move a lot so it's easy to put'em up and tak'em down.

You can reach them at 877-965-1533. They are in Winter Haven, FL. Be sure to inqure about the side panels. We just bought the main window screen to start and decided to get the side windows too. You might get a better deal if you order all at once.

Good luck,
ncsoar
