Prompt RV Sunscreen

I ordered these sunscreens after reading about them here. When I took them out the box I thought, this was a waste of money. Although they are a quality product they seemed heavy and just by looking at them I thought they would not be very user friendly. I ordered them with the heavy duty suction cups. And I didn't think they would be easy to install or that the suction cups would even hold them. Well boys was I ever wrong. We went camping along the Gulf of Mexico coast this past weekend, I installed them in less than 10 minutes. I did need a ladder, but I carry one with me, my wife had to help me with the larger windshield screen but I did the door and the DS window alone. We had a few rain showers and heat in the low 90's with strong gust of wind. The sunscreens held on and I never had to adjust them the whole time there. And we could tell a difference in the temps inside the cockpit area. I do recommend this product to anyone who was thinking about buying them.

And besides all that they look cool, my DW said it looks like the coach is wearing sunglasses.

Looks really great! I've heard the windshield one makes a huge difference. do the side ones also or not as much of a necessity? Been looking and comparing a bunch of brands and still unsure of which ones to go with. I especially like the fact that there is no snaps to drill into the rig!!

JTN8, you could probably do without the entry door screen, but I would get the DS window screen along with the windshield. Where I was parked the afternoon sun was shining directly onto the DS window and windshield.

And thanks for the compliment.

Very nice. I hope a manufacturer will be at the good Sam rally next week. Every bit helps to reduce the heat.

That looks like a seriously sunny spot! I never thought about putting a tarp under our outdoor mat..... that could be a very good idea...... Thanks!

Clancy that spot, like all at that CG, are sandy with rock pads. Those tarps help keep the sand out of the coach. DW idea actually.

They are made by Prompt RV Sunscreens. They are located in Florida. They have a website but you need to call them to order a set. They shipped them to me here in Louisiana.

Here's a link to the website.
