Check out the Magne Shade web site video. They show a 5' 4" lady putting the screens on. It is simple.

I use the Prompt RV Sunscreen also and love the ease of installation. I've used a hose to clean mine on a concrete slab.

I prefer the RVQuickShades...one big reason is they are always clean and dray. I am able to put it up without a problem and the suctions have worked well for us...

For those of you who spend time in hot sunny climates like Arizona, I suggest you give the exterior sun shades strong consideration. Because they are mounted on the outside of the glass they block far more heat than those mounted on the inside where the sun hits the shades and then heat builds up between those interior shades and the glass, thereby raising the interior temperature substantially.

We have been using the inside sun screens for years. One reason is that you can't get pine tree sap removed without destroying the sun screen. We've never had to replace our inside sun screens.

What's your opinion of this Quote form ED ? Do your inside shades protect form the heat as the outside ones do ?

Thanks

Cliff

From my experience the inside shades noticeably reduce the heat (experience in Arizona and Texas). The only down side is you have to remember to moisten the suction cups and press them firmly to the windshield. Also we have never had to wash our sunscreens. We roll them up around a cardboard tube and place in a heavy duty 55 gallon contractor trash bag. The package is placed in one compartment out of the way. Take care of things and they will last a long time is our motto.

We have used both, and we think the outside mount keep the heat out better. Like Wayne M, we also really like the MagneShade. They are very easy to put up and look great! We don't have pine trees close by so fortunately we don't have to deal with pine tar (had to deal with that on cars at a previous house, not fun).

As several people have said, the best shade depends on your situation and preferences. We still sometimes use the inside shades, and sometimes use both.

I saw a study where a windshield had half with exterior and half covered with RVQuickshades...and RVQuickshades was the top performer in most cases.

One of our members...InflatableBoats4Less, is a Dealer for RVQuickshades. He cannot mention it because he is not a paid sponsor - but I can tell you that as a consumer ...I had a great some of the best customer service from Tim & Crystal Ryerson ...and that was before they knew who I was!
They also hosted a "Happy Hour" for the Monaco group in Quartzsite last year.
That is my dollar's worth...now off I go to get ready for work...

Clifftail, We also have a set of the externally mounted screens that fasten with snaps. We quit using them. We also spent 5 summers in Southeast Utah and many summers here at our home and camping in Florida. We now use the RVQuick Shades exclusively. Maybe the sun in Arizona is just different.

A note to whoever it is that has the RV Quick Shades and wraps them around a cardboard tube. RV Quick Shades has a sleeve made of the screening material for storing them. Since they are clean we store them inside.

I do not have stock in RV Quick Shades nor am I a dealer.......just a satisfied customer.
