Magna shade is well worth the money in my opinion just for the ease of installation, no ladder. The key is to stop the heat before it enters the MH, putting anything on the inside of the windshield still allows the heat to enter the coach. It may be blocked from the living space but the heat has to dissipate somehow and some of it will come around any screen you use. The exterior shades stop most of the heat before it passes through the windshield and into the space that must be cooled by the AC.

RV Sunscreen | No More Snaps, Drilling or Climbing

We have been using this one for 8 years. It still looks great. They are a sponsor here.

You can see out during the day and they cannot see in. At night, they can see in with your lights on.

One person install.

I have the Prompt RV Sunscreen referenced by YC1. Works well but the 30 second one-person install from the ground is a bit of an exaggeration. Maybe on a class C but not a class A. I need a stool on the driver's side.

Blow the air out and try putting it on before leveling it up. I too use a small folding stool if I forget.

What type of material is it made out of? The website doesn't say (or I couldn't find it).

We also used this for 8 years (coincidently). At the time, it was the most reasonable you could purchase and a fast install.

It was recommended by many to get a darker color rather than white is you want to see out with more definition. We got a dark brown to match our motorhome. White is more glaring to look through and you can't see as clear.

They make them for any RV - just tell them what you have. It's a heavy fabric like the expensive ones are made from and being full-timers we used it all the time. It lasted well and we included it with the sale of our motorhome.

Thanks for all of the suggestions. I've contacted Magne Shade and will probably get one of their black shades. I'd love to have one of my photos on one but not for $400.00!
I'll also try one of the vent pillows. Anything that will help keep out the heat is a plus in my book.

Blocking The Heat!

Thanks for any suggestions you have - we're wide open to them all.
For those who may be on a tight budget......We used an insulating heat barrier that was purchased from Lowes. Basically a type of "bubble wrap" with aluminum foil adhered to both sides. It comes in a 48 inch roll (25 or 50 foot length). It will roll out and stay quite flat when it is positioned, and you can roll it back up for storage. It covered the large 2 piece windshield on our Damon Intruder. I used 2 pieces, as our windshield is the 2 piece version. Did not need any fasteners to hold it in place due to the design of the interior w/s moldings.
It does a great job in keeping the heat out. Planning to cut two more pieces for the side cockpit windows...they will be held in place by small pieces of VELCRO.

That's called "Reflectix", a very popular insulating material! We use that inside our windshield!
