I picked up my Prompt Sunscreens in February and love them! The make a big difference with solar heat gain inside the coach. Really helps the front A/C unit keep up. I covered all my front windows and windshield plus I had one made for the big side window on our 360-FWS!

It sounds like they have a good price. Did you need to measure it out for them or just tell them it's a Berkshire ?

Phil, they had the pattern for the Berkshire, however just to make sure I also gave them the measurments of the side windows. Everything fits great.

Does anyone know how the Prompt sunscreen compares to the Magna Shade? Other than the fact that the Magna is about $200 more, the magnet system looks like it would be easier to use. Although if the Prompt screen is easy to set up (with no holes required) then might as well save the money!

Forgot to ask - do the suction cups of the Prompt system leave any marks? I'm just wondering what they would do to the paint if left on during storage.

RKC02, I don't know any more about the difference other than suction cups vs magnets. I would agree that maybe a magna shade would be easier to install, however the Prompt is not that difficult and can be done from the ground. I carry a ladder so i use it and it makes the install very easy.

I'm don't think the suction cups will leave a mark or not. What I can tell you is at my summer place I have had the screen on for about 2 months and removed it earlier this week to wash the coach and windshield and it hadn't left any mark. Also no holes are required.

Also understand that the cups have a life span of about 1 - 2 years so they have to be replaced at some point depending on how severe the sun issue is. The good thing is they are easy to replace and cheap at about $1 each if you order extras when ordering your shade. I think you can also buy them at Home Depot or Lowe's. They are your standard 3" suction cup.

From all I've heard MagnaShade is a top quality product with a lot of satisfied customers.

Let me add that I'm also very happy with my Prompt RV shades. I found out about them from another camper who got his Prompt RV shades at the Tampa RV show this past January. He was really happy and convinced me that they were the way to go.

I too was wondering about the MAGNA Shades vs the PROMPT.... Thank you for the input!!! I think I may also order the PROMPT shades for mine. My coach has not come in yet, (should be off the assembly line in about a week) but I special ordered it with two 15K A/C's to help keep it cooler. I'm also going to get these to help even more when we are camping in non shaded areas...

Thanks again for the input!!

Jason

are those suction cups only on the glass or are they on the paint?

if on the paint, do they stick on well if you have a good coat of slick and slippery wax on it?
