Custom Front window sunshades

Does anyone have any recommendations for custom sunshades to apply on the outside of my coach while camping? I'm looking for some that I can still see out while inside, but hard for anyone outside to see in during the day. I'm looking for some with a custom look/fit with no wrinkles. Thanks in advance.

We've only had our RVsuncreen for a few weeks, but are very pleased. I especially like the ability to install it easily without a ladder. Don't know if screens will stretch, yet another reason to avoid ones that attach with snaps or twist locks. Our sunscreen has an adjustable rubber strap on each end. Finally, they had our coach windshield measurement so I didn't have to worry about measurements.

I've had two Prompt sunscreens like Okiedoke mentioned. They look great and you can install them from the ground without using a ladder.

I also have Prompt RV screens, they're super easy to use, no real "installation" needed as they just hook/suction cup onto the vehicle.

I am extremely happy with the ones from SunPro mfg in Arizona. I have had mine for 2 years and it was one of the best investments I've made. Get the 90% Suntex model as it's a better, heavier material. The great thing is cost. For $259 they sell them as a set which includes the windshield cover, both side windows, slip on covers for the windshield wipers and a storage bag for all of the pieces.

RV Windshield Covers - Features

They may come out of storage a little creased just from laying flat in the bay, but once they are snapped in place, a short time in the sun and they smooth out nicely. They really make a difference in cutting out the hot sun. I've been threatening to get a piece of PVC sewer pipe to roll them up in so they wouldn't crease, just never have followed through.

I have these... Custom made for your coach (in the color you want) and easy to install yourself. You can still see put clearly!

Magneshade, no doubt about it. Not the cheapest, but we'll worth it.

We've been very happy with our's too... had them for several years on our old coach with absolutely no issues and mainly used in the Florida sun.
On the new coach, I was thinking about the magna shades, but they are just too pricey for a sun shade, in my opinion.

Agree. Put on and take down in seconds, no ladder needed.

I had a nice set of custom shades made for us last winter in the RGV. I really under estimated the labor to put them on with a ladder. Not horrible but still significant. Noe that I hurt my back and not suppose to get up on one...

Magneshades here I come.
