I have the external type, a little extra trouble to mount but FAR better protection and looks. Also I enjoy being able to look out, don't get that "IN A BOX" feeling.

I just purchased a sunscreen from Prompt RV sunscreens just before our last 2 week trip. We went to the western side of the Sierra's so it was real hot. I was amazed at how much cooler the rig stayed in the direct sun light. It also happened that it was the week of the heat wave in west so temps were over 100* much of the time. I was a little skeptical about the suction cups holding the shade firm as I have a front door coach, and adhere the suction cups to the metal 3" frame around the window. It worker great and was easily applied from the ground by one person.

I can't recommend them highly enough for effectiveness and looks. One of our camp sites was a lake view of Shaver lake, so being able to see through them all during the day and enjoy the view was a real plus.

Now if I just didn't get stuck getting to the campground, but thats another story......

We actually just got our sunshades this past weekend. Gordon Brown from RV Sunshade Co. came to our site and installed the shade on the big front window and the two side windows (driver side window and door). It makes such a difference inside the coach. I believe he said his were 98% UV blocker. The inside feels so soft and cozy and we can still see outside. We may need a taller ladder but whatever the cost it is so worth it!!

Has anyone considered just buying a roll up shade and replacing the fabric on the tupe with sunshade screening from Lowes or Home Depot. They will custom cut the shade to the length would want and you could build a small valance over it to make it look good. A suction cup at the bottom would hold it at the desired height. It's what I am planning to do on the side widows of may Damon MH. I am tired of sitting in a greenhouse while we are driving down the road.

Just like the previous poster, Tom....We also have the Sunguard sunscreens and LOVE them.

We had originally bought the Prompt, but they are a PITA to install and they were NEVER tight against the side windows with the suction cups.

We are much more pleased with the snap on Sunguards....

We made our own. Had fun doing it too. Used Velcro strips, two pieces of fabric and a couple of aluminum strips for support. Held up great even when it was 110 outside, through dust, wind and rain.
