Yes they are. I have had mine on in some very strong side winds in Idaho with no problem. Roger is very pleasant to deal with. Give him a call and he will give you a quote.

Magneshade is the one I chose after research. Terrific product. It goes up really easy and comes down in a second. No ladder needed. I bought a printed shade which ran around $800 but Roger has various models that run around $400. It really pays off here in the deep south because it has made a very big difference in the heat since it is mounted outside. Ease of installation makes me use it every time we park during summer and winter. I truly believe it helps in either season. I have used it a lot and it still looks like new.

Less than 30 seconds to install, and less than 15 seconds to take off.

Rolling and storing them, if that is what you would do, actually takes longer, but in the comfort of the RV, or if weather is nice, on the picnic table.

Very nice carrying case accompanies the shades. I purchase the side shades also.

No one on here has enough nice words to say about Roger and Clare so just let me add this, they are great.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

After a lot of research it's the way we opted to go. We have not had ours that long so for my putting it up in 30 seconds is a stretch so far but still very easy. Taking it down is a snap.
It does do a great job and I am very happy with it. We are in Quartzsite right now and had some pretty good winds and it help great.

p.s., the first install is a two person job and will take considerably longer than 30 seconds.

Dave, practice, practice, practice. I don't rush it, but it is 30 seconds or less. Put the first corner magnet up, put the last corner magnet up, and the rest all seem to snap in place. Then it is a little tug here and there to get the wrinkles out.

There will be a test next time out! Hee hee!

Go to Play It Again Sports and buy 2 used pool ques, $5.00 each. They sure make installing simple.

I made my own magnetic shade with 90% Textilene for about $230.

Disclaimer: As it is for my personal use and I don't sell them, I am not infringing on Roger's patent pending.

They are a top quality product...and a bit pricey.

Home made may have a sense of accomplishment.

Quality made and professionalism is paramount in my book.
