My apologies, should be easycurtain.net. They're available for big rigs, as well as Class C-type motor homes. Given a choice between the original cab curtain, the Adco exterior shade, and the easycurtain, I tend to gravitate more toward the easycurtain for function and ease of use.

We bought one of these and really like it. Takes about 60 seconds to install and much less to take down. Plus, the entire cab is still accessible. I've tried the curtain that came with the unit, as well as the exterior Adco cover, and the easy curtain just seems to work best for us.

Sorry for the wrong URL. The correct one is www.easycurtain.net

I tried to put the curtain up but the DW made me take it down and get the outside one, she said it made he feel closed in with curtain up.

I purchased the exterior wrap around cover. It is easier to install than the supplied interior cover. The interior cover also blocks access to the in dash entertainment system

Forgot to mention the exterior cover also blocks the sun which helps keep the interior cooler in the summer

DW made a mod to the included cab curtain. Cut a couple slits up. Attached loops and buttons. We roll the slit up and button it in place (also buttons for when it's down). Allows us to access the Magnadyne much easier. Pic attached that kind of shows what she did.

For the folks that use an outside windshield cover, isn't that kind of a pain when there is dew on it or when it rains?

I keep a couple of old bath towels handy for wiping off power cord, etc. I just wipe down the cover and put it away damp. It will go back out on the windshield later the same day anyway. I usually leave it in place the whole time we are at a campsite and take down only when traveling. At home, we park in a storage yard and I put cover in place there also.

I've asked our curtain supplier to come in next week to see if we can come up with a "cab window only" option for the privacy curtain.

I think the outside mount ones might be a cleaner install....but one of the nice things about a motorhome is when you get to the site and its raining, just fire up the gen or push out the slides drink a beer and get to the set up when it stops. Plus I have skied in one and last thing I want to do is have it freeze to the outside.

Once we come up with something I'll be sure to make it available through parts.

We have the cab window type on our present MH. It has soft velcro on it and it sticks to "velwasher" velcro dots that are screwed onto the plastic trim above the doors and windshield. The visors help hold it up too. Overall, I like it. It's light and simple. We also have a quilted plain colored bedspread which we can use to block the cab off from the rest of the house for cold nights. I will miss having the cab window one on our Sunseeker.

Never had much trouble with the wrap-around Velcro although like Paul mentioned it does block view of the Magnadyne DVD system - no big deal. I do also use a folding windshield shade - the foil kind. I use that on the inside windshield when the coach is parked and not in use and though to try it to block out light that made it through the curtain. Works very well. Keeps the cab cooler in the summer.
