Any recommendations or comments on purchasing a Windscreen Thermal Cover for a 2010 Mercedes Autosleeper Devon M/H? Silver Screens market one at £240
 ish but there are others for about £100 less. Is it a case of what you pay for you get? ie generic fit/material etc. Cheers J C

Yep, generally you get what you pay for. 

Silverscreen and Taylormade are equally good but I thought the Taylormade was about £160.

You’re a few weeks too late as I recently sold a TM for a Sprinter to another member here via the classified ads.

Thanks Tinwheeler, haven't researched other makes yet. Pity I missed yours, maybe another on the forum might turn up? Cheers J C.

You never know your luck!

You’re much closer than the eventual buyer but that’s the way it goes.

There’s a screenshot of the Taylormade version in my ad.

Polar Screens at Minster Products are really good quality. If  model not listed they send you a kit to make a template,  send it back and they'll make one.

How big is the bag when it is packed, Paul. I've always been put off the external screens because of needing to transport them when soaking wet after a night of rain. Instead I have condensation on the inside of the windows under the internal screens. But if the bag is waterproof and not too big it can go in the bathroom under the sink? How do you care with that?

I've actually got Silver Screens (I inspected Polar Screens at one of the shows and was impressed) Silver Screen bag is flat about 3ft x 15in x 2 in.  The Polar ones come is a tubular bag about 3ft x 9in. If wet I just chuck them loose in the washroom whilst travelling and if going to another site just put them on wet.

I guess the TM bag is a similar size to that of the SS described by Paul. It’s a thin waterproof bag and can be folded in half with the blind inside. 

We used to put it in the washroom for temp storage or under a bunk for longer term storage.

We are very satisfied with our short Taylormade which travels in the shower in its bag if it's dry and outside its bag if it's wet.  We only take it in the cooler months, often in lieu of the folding chairs.
