I have seen alot of exterior windshield covers on MH's and spent this last weekend with friends in the Desert. Well needless to say it was pretty hot and close to or at 100* there. So I did a small test (they have a cover, we dont) and the front of there MH stayed cooler than ours, ok so the covers work.

My ????, which company to go with! Everyone claims that theres are the best. Do I buy them and install them myself? Do I have them custom made to my MH? Any help would be great!!

If you want tight fitting covers that do not sag and look sloppy, get SunGuards.

Forgot to add.....I have one of these SunGuards on my side window. I don't think Prompt offers these.

I am glad that beaverjim has had good service out of the screens from Prompt. I have found them to be less than satisfactory. I'll trash mine as soon as I can get to McKinney, TX to get MCDs installed.

I agree with Jim. MCD gets my vote and $s. Go here and take a look at their products.

Our set from Prompt continue to work well going into our 4th season. I did have to replace the suction cups on the side screens once. As long as I remember to keep the cups clean & wipe the coach where they attach I've never had them come off by themselves.

I've had a Prompt RV sunscreen on my previous coach for at least 7 years and it is still going strong and fits well. I bought one, and a side screen, for my new coach and am not entirely happy with the fit. It does a good job though. It may be a matter of me getting some help to put it on and get it aligned properly with the windshield. It has a little pucker at the top I haven't been able to get out by myself.
I was somewhat disappointed to find out the wiper blade covers are now extra. I chose to make my own.

Even though I do not have Prompts I'd like to say Prompt is a sponsor here and that gives us the opportunity for these free forums.

Prompts can be installed from the ground and NO ladder needed. A plus for those that tend to fall off ladders or do not carry a ladder. You do not have to drill holes in your coach. If you are a FMCA member Prompt will include the windshield wiper covers at no additional charge. Prompt is a very good company, when you call a real person answers the phone and Prompt stands behind their products 100%. They are centrally located in FL.

I'm 6'4" and have not managed this yet.

If having to rave about a sponsor is a criteria for posting here, they can delete me now.

I personally prefer the RV Quick Shades which are screens on the inside. If I get a chance I will do a search... but Crystal & Tim are awesome to deal with...and some of the most honest folks I have ever talked to (PLUS a lot cheaper than MCD)
OK...that is my dollars worth...

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...BARELY, but what a PITA installing them! The sides never looked good, were loose and sagged, 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!!

I gave away my virtually new Prompts...just chalked it up to a bad decision.
