Stay with black. It doesn’t discolor. We had then on our W22 for 2 ears and are going to order them for our new coach when we head south this winter. You can see out in the daytime but no one can look in. They also cut down the heat. Get the twist clip ones. They stand up in a tornado – we found out.

We have the factory supplied WS screen along with the side window screens. They are black. The only problem has been the windsheild screen. It was not kept clean by previous owner and there are white streaks on it from the roof. If anyone knows how to clean these off I'd appreciate it. The screens work well in keeping much of the sun out but we still use the bubble wrap foil inside to really protect from the NV sun.

I use Magne Shade

They block 90%. They are held on by very strong magnets. When you wash the vehicle, you leave the screens on and wash them at the same time if you would like. Takes less than 30 seconds to put on, and less than 15 seconds to take off.

I prefer the snap on type on the outside for a variety of reasons. I had a set on the coach that I just traded and after 5 years, they looked like new. They fit very good without any wrinkles, block almost all the sun, can't see inside during the day and I believe they look very good. I have parked beside other types and I haven't seen any that fit quite as well as the snap-on type. I just received a set for my new coach that are black also and will be installing them in next couple of days. It took less than an hour the last time I drilled and installed the snaps and following the furnished directions was easy.

Prompt for us

We use an outside windshield screen while in AZ and CA ... our screen was made by Prompt ... they go on with no snaps or clamps ... you need no ladder to put them up or take them down ...

Prompt WebPage

Our screen is 6 years old and works great ...

I agree with "tarheel" and think the snap on screens look the best. These Mirror Covers / Mirror Bras are what I have.

We use a gray one from Prompt RV and have had no problems with it. Really makes a difference on keeping the coach cool. Especially like the "I can see you, but you can't (almost) see me" feature!

We have the snap on ones and they work well but you need to remember that in the daytime you can see out and people outside cannot see in.

Night time, the exact opposite is true if you have the light on inside.

Ask me how I know!!

Tarheel,
What brand did you get and where did you get them? I had the snap on type with my last coach and I can't remember what brand I had.

Did you order them directly from the factory or from a dealer? How long did it take for delivery.
