I have the Prompt sunscreens, mine are useless as they will not stay on...I have replaced suction cups three times, ....per mfgs. suggestion, at my expense....still will not stay on, I guess my next step is to send them back as they are of no use to me....I know others like this system, but I have had nothing but trouble with mine, with little support from the mfg.

I like my Sunguards alot...94% blocking...snap on..no spider cracks..just need to get up on a ladder to attach, but they work well, especially with a 66" tall windshield!!

Well, we bought the Prompt sunscreens, and they NEVER were tight against the side windows. As far as installing them, yeah...you could get by without a ladder, but what a PITA installing them! They never looked good, were loose, and I decided that I would buy the Sunguards with the stainless steel snaps...and love these much better!!

We bought the black Sunguard Suncreens and I will say not only do they LOOK better than the Prompt, they are faster to install!!

Do you need a ladder to install the Sunguard screens?

Ours are 'Sunshades' snap on and they work perfectly!!! You will need a ladder to get the centre dome.

i like to see out!!

I have been more then satisfied with my Sunguard screens. Only thing I wish it had was two more snaps along the top front.

Otherwise, they stay put, reduce heat and provide plenty of daytime privacy without blocking your view.

At night, I still draw the curtains.

Good quality product.

Of course, now with the shades, I won't have my curtains rotting away due to UV rays.

You could easily add a few more snaps...just go to an awning or boat cover shop..

I have had the Prompt front sunscreen for a few months now and love them. They have been one of the best investments I have made for the coach. Easy on, easy off. It fits the front window snug and keeps the glare and heat out of the coach, and the privacy is great without obstructing the view. As I write this I am parked at the beach watching the ocean with the curtians open and feel comptetly secure with the dozens of people passing by!

if you go to this link...you can see another window covering...we love it...and the folks we dealt with were great! I do prefer the inside shades...and you will see that these shades actually do keep the heat out better than the outside screens if you read all the post...

The prompt sunscreen or any external sunscreen absorbs the heat outside the envelope of the RV. Any sun light energy that penetrates the glass and is absorbed by a device inside the coach will retain the heat inside the coach.

The only devices that I have used to augment the prompt are thin nylon Class A sized flip open aluminized reflectors. These better than any interior device I have used redirect heat back toward the exterior sunscreen making for a much cooler interior environment around the windshield than the stand alone exterior screen.

I sucessfully used this arrangement in extreme summer heat conditions at the Needles KOA in CA.



Test results were:

PS: It was still hot as hades!

Yes, you need a small ladder to snap on the top snaps when putting on the Sunguards...you don't when taking them off. Since I carried a ladder anyway, I also had to use a ladder to install the Prompt as they are not that easy to install without one....Pounding my hand on suction cups that dont hold isn't my cup of tea....especially for the price!

I can put on my Sunguard front windshield cover and BOTH side window covers faster than I could put up just the Prompt front windshield cover.

I especially love the tight side window fit of my new Sunguard Shades. I could never get a good fit with the Prompts.....ever

One other major plus to the Sunguards is they are a 94% blockage vs the Prompt's 80%, so the Sunguards are much heavier duty and block more of the UV rays.

Anybody want my 1 year old white prompts front and side window covers, PM me and I will send for shipping costs.

We have MCD sunscreens and love them. No problems with the snaps and the screens fit like a glove. Well worth the money. We have had the suction cups screens and ended up putting gromets in them and using cup hooks screwed into exisiting screw holes to keep the suckers on the windshield. Also had exterior screens that used a swivel hook and they were hard to swivel when the screens were cold (stiffer). Our snaps are easy and the velcro snap makes them really fit nice.

We have the Prompt sunscreen for the front windshield. It is great for privacy during the day, but we do close our front drapes when it starts getting dark and we need to turn on the interior lights. This is the first thing we bought for our coach before we used it for the first time, and I wouldn't want to be without it! I love having the view out the front! There's just too much window there to waste, IMO.
