If you use a exterior it would prevent the windshield from getting as hot. Inside one would be easier to put on and stay cleaner.

inside outside screens

I was leaning toward exterior due to the fact my windshield rubber seal would covered and not exposed to the sun.

I have used both...in Texas and other southern states. If you are trying to fight the heat, the inside screens pale in comparison to the external shades. Best is to use both, but for thermal protection, if you only invest in one, I recommend external.

Of course the down side is that they are more difficult to install, and you have to store them when not in use, which could translate to less use to avoid the hassle.

x2. It's a matter of heat transfer. Don't let the glass get hot in the first place so the heat from outside can't xfer to the inside. Ever felt the inside of a window pane when it is either v. hot or v. cold outside? There's a formula for heat transfer and the thermo-dynamic properties of glass if there are any physics teachers tuning in. Can't quite remember. It was 35years ago when I aw at college!

I have interior sun screens coming in our new MH, but they don't do much to cut down the heat from the windshield. I have already ordered these that I have used for 10 years and they do keep the heat down and are easy to put on. RV Sunscreen | No More Snaps, Drilling or Climbing
