Wow thank you all for responding - great info, i was considering ShadePro due to the color selection. Our 370XL is blue/white - felt same color shades as the coach would be cool & unique.

Seeing gman55 pic's of his rv in the black; really sharp and will consider that color & brand. Magnashade may be a good option also since there are no holes & no ladders involved. I ordered some sample material in the blue from ShadePro to see how it looks & go from there.

Thanks Again!

We went with Quickshades installs on the inside with suction cup and holds great. Also if it rains you don't have to worry about putting up a wet shade always dry. Whoever you chose they are well worth it.

I've heard nothing but good feed back on the Magna Shades. If I full timed and was parked for extended periods that's the product I'd go with for sure. ChrisnGarren thanks for the link for Quickshades! When I get my rig out of winter storage I think I'll be ordering at least the side shades. Boy sometimes tooling down the road the sun gets mighty hot through the side windows. May consider the windshield shade too if I'm in the mood to spend even more $$$ lol! Checked out the link to RV Toy Store for various products and they seem pricy and a lot of stuff.

You'll be amazed how well they work (the short ones) when driving - no more sun in my eyes from the sides. We did buy 2 extra for the front windshield, but haven't needed them due to the tint (plus, we apparently mostly drive North and South so only need the side ones....!)

They shipped super quick and were easy to put up - the first time takes a little longer because you need to install the suction cups as appropriate for your vehicle, but after that it's a breeze. Would recommend having an awl or small phillips screwdriver when installing the suction cups, you have to make/widen a hole in the screen material and it's much easier if you use something pointy. Learned from experience.....!

WeekNdr (or anyone else)

Here's the link to another great brand that doesn't need any drilling into the RV body or screws for attaching.

RV Sunscreen | No More Snaps, Drilling or Climbing

They have a variety of colors and you don't need a ladder to attach to your rig.

They were at the Tampa RV Show last week, and their factory is in Winter Haven Florida. Great people. Prices are comparable to others.

Just curious, but our Georgetown came with interior shades front and sides. Those that have added shades, I'm guessing didn't? Is there any benefit to adding an exterior shade for heat transfer through the windshield? At this point, i'm not really interested in being able to see out.

I think most newer GT's have the interior blinds. Use those at night. Exterior shades are primarily for daytime privacy. Can see out, but no one can see in.

I have been thinking of getting the Magne Shades for our 2016 Georgetown XL 369 DS. My reason is with the interior, installed shades is that there is a space between the front and side shades. At night, with the interior lights on, the interior is visible from the outside through this small gap. Also, the tinted entry door window may as well be made of clear glass at night. Can any one who is using the Magne Shade tell me if these shades will prevent visibility from the outside at night with interior lights on?

I have posted elsewhere in the forum and was told the interior was visible at night, but I would like that confirmed by someone who uses this brand.
