Yes they can make a difference. The inside shades do a good job but the heat is still inside trapped between window and shade. When we are parked for a few days and sun is beating down on front window the outer shade goes on.

Here is a good storage option for the Magne Shades. Buy a 6" galvanized stove pipe with an end cap. Apply some duct tape on ends to cover what could have a sharp edge and to keep the cap on. The Magne magnets hold the starting roll to the final roll. So no separate fasteners are needed and it keeps it tight without wrinkles. Put the windshield covers in the pipe and put cap end in first so they do not fall out as you lift the pipe out of your basement storage. Roll from left to right (or right to left) so you start and end with a row of magnets. Rigid pipe allows you to push it in on top of other items so it does not bunch. Tried a swim noodle at first and found it unsatisfactory.

Magna shade vs storm

I've had a Magna Shade for almost a year and love it. However, just had a thunderstorm with hail hit the campground at Emerald Isle in NC and it took the shade off the windshield. Tough storm. Just beware that it can happen.

I do almost the same thing, except I use a section of 4in pvc pipe to roll up the shades and store. It helps keep it wrinkle free and makes it a lot easier to store.

Mine is being delivered tomorrow, anxious to install and try it out. Had to make my own pattern, real PIA but they sent me the paper to do it. Got a rush order for free since I was making a pattern they could use on other coaches.

I finally got enough measurements together (thanks Carl) to order mine a couple weeks ago. No word on production date yet. There's so much ash from the forest fires falling I'm glad I don't have them on yet. Will have to start with the roof and work my way down again.

You will love it, easy to put on and take off and really helps keep the heat out. Also great to have morning coffee up front and be able to look out and others can't look in.

If I were you I would take a serious look at Prompt shades. I've had 2 motorhomes and 2 sets of prompt shades. Wouldn't have anything else!

Magne-Shades are a fine product that perform well. They reduce the entry of heat as advertised, hence money well spent. We find them well made, easy to install and remove including our oversized windshield. Takes all of 5 mins to put them up/on or take them down/off. Use of the telescoping rods supplied with the oversized windshield shade make it easy.

We have the full suite; oversized W/S, both driver and passenger side windows, entry door glass and mirror covers. They also look great and provide additional privacy. No regrets having purchased them.
