Do you mean exterior screens? I seriously doubt that anyone does that.

I think he means the interior ones. We have them on the side windows that roll down and they work great, as you can see through them. I have seen them for both sides of the windshield, power shades, that have a folding frame to keep them in place, and would like to add them to my coach. I have seen the pull down type and wondered about them blowing around as well. I am interested in seeing if anyone has a solution for that.

MCD makes an electric front shade that has a day shade component. Just activate and lower the shade a few inches and it helps a lot.

Well, since he said that about them "blowing around," I assumed he meant exterior.

I can't see much blowing around on the inside. We never drive with a window open. We never camp with a window open. That's why we have a hvac system. I even removed the side screens up front as they block the side view somewhat. And only have to open the window at a toll booth and not a screen and window. I would like a motorized shade that you could lower as needed when driving into the sun. They may have to Waite, and should be standard on the upcoming DP.

I believe the MCD Shades are what you are looking for OP!

I guess blowing around was not the right term. Swinging back and forth would better describe it.

Maybe I'm the goober! Haven't heard that term for awhile. Ha Ha.
