Best outside custom window covers?

I have heard of various suggestions for covers with suction cups, Velcro or magnets. Custom made and one size fits all. Looking for some for a 2013 Entegra Anthem. I would appreciate any feedback and suggestions on the best type of cover to buy at a reasonable cost, although best fit and function are of most importance. Thanks in advance for your leads!

We have MagmeShade and are very pleased. They are custom to your make and model coach. It's easy to install the magnets in the inside of the windshield and requires no ladder to put up or take down. The site has a short video that shows putting them up and taking them down and it really is that easy.
If you get one for the drivers side window request one that mounts to the window frame and not the glass. Ours attaches to the glass but because of the sliding window it is not ideal.

I had a set from SunPro Manufacturing on my Itasca and loved their product. You have a choice of snaps, twist lock, or velcro fasteners. Their fit was perfect and they offer a windshield set that includes the WS cover, side window covers, windshield wiper covers and a storage bag. I'm getting ready to order a set for my new Tiffin.

X2 for Magna Shade. We really like ours, easy on and easy off.

We have a prompt sunscreen, no ladders. Works great custom fit to our RV.

Magnashade looks good but may not hold in high winds.

We love our magneshades and have been through some pretty rough thunderstorms with sustained winds. No movement at all on the shades. Everything else on the camp site blew around.

FYI, I have the one with toggles and found that I could drag it up on the roof and lay down and hook the screen on across the top.

MagneShade!
That thing is not blowing off either. Those magnets are unbelievably strong.


We used our MagneShade for the first time last weekend in Virginia which hit the mid-80's during the days. We camped all three days with nothing on but the Maxxfans and windows open.
No a/c required. What a difference!!!!

We have magnashade and it's one of the best decisions we've made to improving our MH. Been in windy conditions and the strong magnets held well. Easy to put up and take down.

Roger at MagneShade also makes really cool tire covers to protect tires from UV rays but still expose your wheels.

You did ask for "outside", but we are tickled with our "inside" screen that we got for less than $30 at Beasley's in Center Hill, Florida a few years ago. Welcome
Its a bit of a pain to make a paper pattern of the windshield, but for that price and a color that matches the dash and one of the 4 colors on our coach, as well as never having to worry about drilling holes, fighting wind, dirt, or what to do with a wet screen, it was an easy choice. What are the pros for an outside screen?
