We have the quickshades. Works great. I like the fact that there always clean and dry.

We have used the RV Quick Shades on two MH's. We are not the type to snowbird and stay put in one place for a long time, so the ease of putting up and taking down the shades every day,or so, makes them very convenient. Also, the couple that sells them are very nice, they have been very easy to work with, concerning the "right" colors, and sizes. If we would stay put in one place for an extended period of time, in the sunny part of the country, maybe the exterior mounted units might be a little better.

I understand your point, but the Prompt windshield sunscreen only takes about 15 seconds to place, plus no ladder, no snaps, etc. We use it when only staying somewhere for one day as well as the longer stays since it's so quick and easy... snow, rain, or shine. Just an FYI.

We have had both kinds, indoor and now the outdoor ones. I agree with Doula...we have had Prompt windshield, driver's window and passenger window screens since we purchased our Horizon. SOOOO much easier to put up and take down.

Never again will I go with screens that you have to bend, twist and hunch to get those suction cups on and off.

We decided to go the cheap route. We bought 90% solar shade material from Lowes on sale for $12 per roll. It will only take 1 roll to do our front windshield. DW is going to sew a hem on the top and bottom edges and we'll add a few suction cups. Naturally we'll put this one inside our coach, but for $12 and a little labor (hers, not mine) it should be sweet.

We have used both of these products. We had Prompt for our old gas coach and we use the RV Quickshades on our pusher. Both are very good products and work well. And both have suction cups that give out after a year or so.

Both have pros and cons that are mentioned quite well in the previous posts. The one thing we have done is also put the Quickshades on our internal windows wich have greatly helped the heat here in Florida.

Look at both products and pick the one you like the best. You won't be sorry with either product.

Update from the sagging problem I noted in an earlier post. I spoke with Bill at Prompt and he came to me while at the FL state rally and adjusted my screen so it's sagiing problem is a thing of the past.

I also had a problem putting up the screen with the suction cups so Bill put on the clips like are used in gas models and now I am able to put it on myself in a less than a minute and it fits just like it is intended too. Bill did say part of the these issues were due to my side post near the door being flat black rather than a painted surface. The suction cups work better on a painted surface.

I have recommended Prompt to many people and with seeing how they stand behind their product I certainly will continue to do so.

I have had the Quick Shade now for 4years and love them.
No problem putting them up and taking them down and especially the fact they are clean and dry as I am.

You might try Sewmasters in Yuma -- full windshield and front side windows and carry bag - $179. Custom made, snap attachment, twist lock extra. We went a step further, at the suggestion of a full timer, and had the screen on our door removed and replaced with the sun screen, as we like to keep the outer door open. Privacy and fresh air!

I may have said this before so please fogive an old lady for repeating herself. The reason I like the Prompt sunscreens (besides the fact they are a sponsor of this forum) is there are no snaps and no ladder needed even for me and I'm height challenged. Takes me maybe 30 seconds to put up the screen. Yes, the inside ones stay cleaner but they are also not as efficient. I have an inside one for those one night stops that aren't in a camprgound during the summer. It helps with the heat but not as much as the outside one.
