This is what we have used on both of our motor homes. Easy to put up and take down.

Screen and shade

We use both, depending on circumstances. I prefer to use just the curtain at night for privacy. But if we are facing into the afternoon sun I want the sunshade on. Also, because we store our Solera outside in a sunny year around climates I want the interior protected while parked. We bought our sunscreens from: Dodge Sprinter Windshield SunShade Set 2004-2015

We got the Adco 2509 with the cut outs for the mirrors for our Forester 2501 has screens to open side windows Put it in the shower when traveling. Love it.
Our previous RV was a sprinter. I took a sun shade and sewed on side window shields. It worked well too. Able to easily cover the windows for privacy when we pulled in to a site at night in the rain, but couldn't open the windows for air as no screens

We use an exterior cover that has flaps at the door windows with screens built in. It allows us to drop the flaps and roll down the windows for additional breezes. Just raise the flaps in the evening.

Thanks!Just ordered the Heat Shield Gold for our 3050s.We will use this instead of the ugly beige privacy curtain.We do have the outside vinyl one too but harder to put off and on and sometimes like to see out the window during the day.
I am going to attach the existing cab curtains to a nicer fabric ( chocolate brown) -reusing the hooks etc in place.
I also purchased one panel to put on bedroom window when we stay somewhere with lots of sun or lots of lights!As recommended on here will attach to top of valance with some Velcro dots.Thanks again for great ideas!

Sunshades for sure. The curtains take away too much useable space (even if you are not using it to sit in, the radio is there and you have easy access to store items on the front seat, etc.).
I had one of those outside covers and never used it due to the hassle to put it on and off and to store it wet.

I would like it if the heat shield fit over the side windows. The side windows also produce heat and people can look into the motor home.

Yes. Side windows would be included.

+1 on the inside screen: 1) we use the swivel seats at camp and so the curtain doesn't work out, 2) radio (and surround TV sound) controls were 'behind the curtain' and out of reach when in my jammies (my remote doesn't work thru the curtain) and 3) when we did use the curtain, inside felt smaller.
