Guess you have seen the replies so I am spared. However, the black seems to be the best at absorbing heat before it enters through the windshield. You would think other wise but apparently tests show this to be the case.

We went with SunGuard windshield cover. Pretty much the same as SunPro. I liked the 12 year warranty. Several months in southern Fl., sun hitting the windshield pretty much all day. Once the sun screen was installed it made a dramatic difference in inside temps. Ours is a light gray, goes with the gray on the motorhome.

My windshield screens are the open weave type secured with turn buttons. They are cream colored instead of the more common black. I also made some panels out of Relectix https://www.lowes.com/pd/Reflectix-1...5-ft-L/3011906.

On the worst of hot days I slide the Relectix panels under the covers and it keep out almost all the heat. Makes the coach look like a cave from the inside but at least it's a cool cave.

Snap on vs Magne Shade

Had snap on shades on a previous coach. Ladder went down when installing and I fell, crushing my heel. Magne Shades on new MH. Trust me, they are not expensive compared to a crushed heel.

I bought the madneshade flip shads for the side windows, they are perfect at blocking a lot of the sun and heat. They flip down when stopped and up when traveling so they don't obstruct the view. Next on my list is the one for windshield.
