Had one custom made at a marine canvas shop for material called Sunbrella.

Check out the thread about Magne Shade here in the Product Evaluations Forum. Several members are happy with theirs.

Thanks. I went to the web site and they look good. How have the suction cups held up and does it do a good job blocking the sun?

Cliff, These do an excellent job of blocking the sun. As with all the sunscreen fabrics they allow you to see out but outsiders cannot see in, in the daytime. The suction cups haven't been any problems for us.
One of the reasons I like these vs. others is that they are on the inside and therefore always clean and dry.

Go here - Prompt RV Sunscreens - easiest sunscreens out there, no drilling, one person (me) puts them up without any problem. Have had them for 3 years - wash them with soap and water once in a while and we are good to go.

I agree with Barbaraok. The Prompt sunscreens are great and they have great customer service. I had one for many years on my last coach and bought one for this one right after I got it. I'm short and single and sometimes it does take me maybe a minute to put it on the DP by myself. I stand on the entry step on the passenger side and place my folding step on the driver side.

I believe they are still a sponsor of this forum and it is also good to support our sponsors. Make sure to mention that if you call.

I'm partial to this after my research

bnemeth,

I have the Prompt Screen mentioned above. I am sorry I got a light beige color. It stayed in place for an entire summer season in Coastal Maine. It got stained and collected so much debris I could not clean it up to my satisfaction.

I would get a dark color in the future and remove every few weeks to clean underneath.

It is easy to install and remove.

The dirt and etc. problem is why we prefer and have used for many years, the ones that are installed on the inside of the windshield with the suction cups. All of the screens sure aid in the protection of the interior for fade as well as help reduce the temperature from the sun.

I too would recomend the prompt screen. We bought ours a year ago. I wanted something that was easy to install, and didn't require drilling holes. We had been using the sunscreens that went on the inside. The differance in the afternoon suns heat was noticed right away. Much cooler!

I had the prompt screens on my 2001 winnebago and they were great. A little hard to keep clean( I had white ones ).The winn. had 19.5 " wheels and it was easy to put them on and off. I recently ordered them for my new coach which has 22.5' wheels with a larger chassis and I had to use a ladder to get them on which defeated my purpose ( I'm 6'1" ). The company took them back which didn't surprise me as they have always been really good with customer service.They just didn't work for me with the new MH.
