Those Magneshades are pricey. No problems with them blowing off in storms or ripped off by idiots?

My Magne Shade has a couple of external magnets that are not noticeable all. The side shades, which I installed, also have external magnets -- also not noticeable. Great investment for us. HUGE difference in solar rejection.

We've suffered some pretty stiff winds with no problems. As for idiots, they can vandalize lots of things; IMO you can't live your life worrying about all of them.

Thanks for this info. I need to reconsider my objection to the presumed appearance of external mag's. Did you do the install of the front shade yourself? That is the one I'm most interested in and most concerned about my ability to "get it right".

Noticing your handle, I'm Captain (ret) US Merchant Marine. I sometimes refer to my rig as a freighter but it's response is more like a tanker.

Great idea, have any pictures?

I don't live far from Mocksville where Magne Shade is located so I had them install the windshield cover. As I watched them install it I was pretty certain that I could have done it myself. Two people are required for a good installation on the windshield, though. I did the door and window install. Magne Shade sent me very good instructions and were available by phone to answer any questions. Their customer service is top notch.

As for the handle, I'm a retired submarine driver. I did many mock torpedo approaches on you guys. Good times.

Always had a problem getting my magna shade up. The first magnet to connect would let go before i got others to catch. While at the FMCA rally this March the magnashade owner was a few coaches from me and i asked him about that. He recommended adding an additional magnet to the outside at that corner. He gave me a new magnet and it's easy to get up every time now.

One thing i'd like to note is these magnets are very strong and will get small rocks that have metal content. I scratched my windshield not knowing.

I use pool noodles to roll mine up and store in a thru basement.

We have one on a 2016 Allegro Bus with a 67Ē high windshield and it works fine. Do need two poles from them to get it on though. We live in Black Mountain BTW
