I have seen some that are domed and or a combination of velcro and domed on the outside.

Do the domes ever come loose or cause problems with the Gel???

Is there something similar for the inside???

Could you make them yourself??? or at least do you think I could talk the Better Half into making them??

Thanx Rick

Rick,
Not sure if you are looking at a Class A but here is a link to a popular screen that many of us use Prompt RV

I made ours from solar screen purchased at Home Depot or Lowe's. Used a piece of aluminum flat stock on the edges (sewn in) and a strap with flat hook to catch window edge for drivers side. I use a bungee for the passanger side around a bracket for the dorr awning. I also use two bungees for thetop corners off the cb and radio antenna's.

I got mine when I first moved to a class A... That was before I knew about the roll on version. But, they work good for sun control and privacy during the day. At night I wouldn't do any Homer Simpson stuff though.

We bought a roll of silver quilted insulation material at our local home center and cut it to fit the inside of the windshield. Works great, privacy and sunscreen both. Rolls up easily for travel.

Thanx for the replies!! The worst thing about the domes is that you need to carry a 8' step ladder to reach the top ones.

Any ways to get the top domes fastened without the ladder???

Rick

Gsetter, sounds like a simple, low cost solution. Just curious, how do you get the quilted insulation material to stick to the inside of the windshield?

The silver quilted insulation material is stiff enough that it just wedges in the windshield. It is a bit larger then the opening and that probably helps, just stuff it around the dash and under the little windshield fans and it stays put. We saw a friend who was using it and it looked neat, so we tried it too and it works great. Way better then just closing the curtains for keeping the heat/sun out.

We also put a piece of the quilted insulation in the window on the drivers side above the side window. It just tucked in and stays nice, it really helps when the sun is shining on the driver and that window is above where the driver needs to see out.

Prompt RV Sunscreens (see Bob Russo's link above) can be put up without a ladder. However, I am not very tall and I find a 1-step stool makes installation easier. They attach with rubber straps and suction cups, so there's no drilling either.

There are also sunscreens from MCD that mount inside. These can also double as sun visors for use while driving. Click on the American Duo and American Solo shades.

I have also seen sunscreens that attach to the inside of the window with suction cups.

Either from monaco or north trailrv. They fit on a trackabove the windshield or on window,
We were only on the coach 4 days. The door shade

We have the shades that mount on the inside, with suction cups. Much easier to install or remove when it's raining outside. Don't come in dirty or wet. No ladders or step stools needed. Have same shading effect and UVA protection factor as externally mounted. The suction cups ocasionally need to be cleaned with alcohol wipes, if your not careful handling them. Oh, and no holes in your RV.
