I bought inside sun shades. They come with suction cups to attach to the inside of the windshield. They come oversized. I have a split windshield, so I cut the material to fit each side. They come with additional suction cups. They are easy to put up and take down. I have found that they do their job. Because my windshield is rounded, I usually have a wrinkle in the fabric. I am able to see out, but view is blocked from the outside. I paid $99

I purchased a roll of the sunscreen material from Home Depot and the suction cups from rvquickshades and made my own. I was able to cover all my windows for less than what the windshield would have cost.

Bought them for windshield and side windows almost four years and 40,000 miles ago. Love them. Moved them to new RV. Take close look their the sun screens that are used as sun visor. They do a fantastic job of blocking sun while driving. Only time we take them down is to wash the windshield inside.

Have used them for over 15 years. Easy to put up and take down.
They never get wet, dirty or need a step ladder to put on like those outside ones.

Have had to order more suction cups after a few years use, to replace wore out ones.

Thanks guys.. I am ordering some this week. Including the sun visor shades. I had been planning to make my own Magnet Mount, outside shades, but this is so easy and not much more expensive than my planned DIY project.
Thanks so much

I purchased from here One-Piece PanaShade and use mine all the time. It's nice during the day cuz you can see outside easily yet outsiders can't really see in so there is some privacy. At night though it is the opposite so we then use the curtains. I have a split window but still use the 1 piece with no problem, just put a suction cup on either side of the split.

It was something similar to this in black. It may have been the exact one. I also don't remember the size roll I purchased but you can measure how much you need.

We had these in our Bounder. They help on privacy and do cut down on the heat gain. However, I'd go for an external cover if buying new. Our CC has the snap on kind, yes with the ladder needed, but they provide better privacy, and most important help a great deal on the heat gain. These came with the coach when we bought it. If buying replacements, I'd go with the MagnaShade type external that you can put up with a pole from the ground.

Best,
Smitty

I'd have to respectfully disagree. They kept out a ton of heat out of our Bounder. We spent 40 straight days in 100 plus degrees in the summer of 2012 and they were very effective. We also live in South Florida. The outside ones may be better ( I don't know ) but the hassle and dealing with wet dirty shades doesn't appeal to me.

I went to Lowe's and purchased a 48"X50' roll of 90% sun block window screening and made my own. Believe it was about $50.00. Home Depot should have the same stuff. Used mine on the outside and worked great.

I bought one of these windshield screens and am very happy with it. I stay in my MH all winter so I have used it extensively. On sunny days it cuts interior heating dramatically. Provides privacy in daytime but not after dark. Visibility looking out is pretty good, well worth the trade off for cooling and privacy. It goes on without ladders or step stools and has never come off in high winds. The company takes your MH make and model when you order so it custom fits your individual windshield.

I have shades from RV Sunshades

http://www.rvsunshadeco.com

This is the 2nd Motorhome that I have had them, and very happy. Shades really need to be on the outside. If they are on the inside, the heat is already in. It really makes a difference.
