I use Prompt RV Sunscreens and wheel covers. No ladders, no snaps no holes. The suction cups work great! I like to intercept the sunlight "before" it comes through the glass.

We have the outside snap type and are very happy with them. The down side is that I have to drag out the ladder to put them on; for that reason I very seldom put them on unless we are staying three or more days in one place.

We're also extremely happy with ours from Prompt. No Snaps, no ladders to haul out, couldn't be easier.

RV Quick Shades for the inside. Stay dry & clean.

The inside outside Myth:
Tests have shown that when a heat indicator was used to compare the RV Quick Shades mounted on the inside to a shade mounted on the outside( made with the same density), the temperature measured 18" back from the windshield proved nearly identical, with the inside shade actually being one degree cooler.

Both shades inside or out, are designed to give you daytime privacy and reduce the UV and heat in your coach.

Prompt RV Sunscreens Xs 4!! We don't use the suction cup option, though. We use the bracket option that hooks onto the front side window frames (don't think that option works for every make & model). Extremely easy and fast! Like the others said, no snaps, no ladders, no holes. We love ours!

I had one problem with my Magne Shade before it was modified by the MFG. The original design was 5 magnets across the top and one on each bottom corner. In a stron wind it came off. Magne Shade added two more magnets, center mast on the outside edges and this, so far, has done the job.

I'm not sure I would put up any screen, regardless of the design, in extremely high wind. I just would not want to take the chance of tearing, just like our topper awnings sometimes do.

Since the material is a mesh, wind goes right through so there isn't a sail effect that gets going. We've been in some pretty strong storms where we brought in the slides, but never even thought about the windscreens - in fact I like them there sort of helping to keep any flying pieces of limbs, etc., from hitting the windshield directly.

I didn't want to mess with a ladder to put sunscreens up - especially given that it seems the front of most RV spots is the lowest, putting me higher on the jacks - and the ladder. I have inside suction cup mounted and I love them. They're easy to put up, provide daytime privacy, definitely help keep the heat out, and look good.

We got the exterior screens from Wade RV in Tampa, Fl (co-located with LazyDays). They snap on the outside, so I too have to use a ladder (folding type from CW). Because they do take about 15 minutes to put up, we only use them when staying somewhere for more than one day. During the day, it is almost like having one-way glass - you can see out but no one can see in. At night, though, that is reversed - you can't see out but others can see in (not a big deal, but just be aware). They really block the sun well. During a recent trip to S Florida, the sun was shining directly in the front windshield, but the dashboard was cool to the touch. My wife and I are both very happy with them. The installer did tell us to be careful to roll them up when storing them. Folding them will cause creases that will not come out!

I vote for the Prompt sunshades. I have used mine since 2004. Very easy to install. I have the option of placing a rubber chord from shade to side window. I can install in just a few minutes without ladder. The wind will not blow it off. I have went through 50+ mph winds without movement. I would certainly purchase again if needed.

Yeah, the rubber cord option is what we use. We prefer that to suction cups. I guess I said 'bracket' since the rubber cord has a bracket on the end of it for attaching to the window.

I agree. We have been through some very high winds and have never had any movement whatsoever of our Prompt sunshade (we only have the windshield screen and wiper blade covers).
