Sun Screens

I know that the various types of sun screens have been discussed and that there are lovers of all types. We happen to like the external sun screens that are held in place by snaps. Having just purchased an 08 Holiday Rambler Endeavor I am looking for suggestions for the best/least expensive place in Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada, or Arizona to have a set made. Your suggestions will be appreciated.

I have the sunscreens that use a suction cup -- I have used them for 5 years, on 2 coaches & they work well -- I live in Gilbert(Phoenix area)AZ. & the suction cup holds in this 115 degree weather -- You stand on the ground to install -- I got them from Prompt RV Sunscreens in FL. Phone # 877-965-1533 Web site is rvsunscreen.com -- Billy Paul Willard

I just ordered some sunscreens from this place at the suggestion of another member(Tarheels). I was also looking for something that had snaps and they seem to have patterns for every coach(no need to take measurements). I ordered them yesterday and they said the delivery time was between 2-3 weeks.

bdpreece......I have the sunscreens that RJay just ordered from MCD. They take a little longer to put on, but I like the look of screens that are stretched tight and fit nicely.

MCD.....They make an exact fit package for your motor home. In the past, they came with a kit that allows you to easily install them yourself. The bottom corners have a snap on triangular patch with velcro. Once the screens are on, you can adjust them so they are tight. They come in a large corrugated tube for storage. I keep the tube in the propane bay, on top of the propane tank.

The down side....you have to drill the coach (4 around each window) to install the snaps. I'm pretty particular and don't find the snaps that noticeable. It requires a ladder to install them, but only takes a few minutes to snap them on. I use my awning rod to remove them. I slide the rod up against the snap and twist.

When putting them away, I place the largest screen on a picnic table. I begin to roll it up tightly spreading the other smaller screens onto the largest one as I continue to roll it up.

If you want something that you can take out everyday and use, these are too time consuming. If you're going to be somewhere for more than 4 or 5 days, they're great.

Don is correct, as always, the tighter the fit the better the look when it comes to exterior sunscreens. Having said that, I am on my second PromptRV screen. It installs from the ground, no ladder necessary. No drilling or fitting (they have templates for most all motorhomes too), and it's great for a short stay, easy up and down. No defects apparent in either of my two screens and if it gets a slight sag, I just unfasten the suction cup and pull the sag out.In 5 years, I have never had the suction cup come off or move on it's own either. They also send a sturdy tube (box) for storage. For my purposes, short stay and moving around, this one is for me. If I were staying somewhere for the season, I might go with the snap on type, One is easy up and the other is no fuss once it's up....the choice is up to you.

Another vote here for Prompt RV sunscreens. Only had mine for two years and still look new. Found it easier to install with two folks, one working each end. Suction cup will not let go even in high temp.

Here's where I bought mine. Ask for Scott, he's the owner. They installed mine, in the rain, at Thousand Trails CG in Palm Desert last February in about an hour. They custom make them......Dennis

The site shows shows $395 for a complete set of three or four depending on the coach. you look to have the same set up as I do 1 front 1 drivers side and two passenger side windows. Is this what you purchased and was that the price?

One caution on shopping for sun shades by price; there are different qualities and sun blocking specifications. Some material is rather cheap and deteriorates more quickly in sunlight while other, pricier material holds up better and blocks more sunlight. We got our custom made snap on shades from an outfit operating right in Palm Creek RV Resort in Casa Grande, AZ.

On another note, this past winter I saw a demo of the Magne Shades mentioned up above in Post No. 12. I can not over-emphasize how attractive and simple to install these shades are. Had I seen them before getting our regular shades, I would have purchased them in a heart beat. Simpler than any other type I have seen to install... one person, feet on the ground.

We bought the inside shades 3 years ago with no issues. Just wash once a year and enjoy, they work very well. They cost around $90.00.
