    Hi All,
    I' am picking up our Hymer B544 next week and would really appreciate any advice on what external winter screens are best. I currently use Taylormade screens on my Autotrail Navajo but since I seem to have a door missing on the Hymer I can't see a similar product fitting too well! :D

    I would think with a door missing there's not much point in screening the windows is there???:(

    With the large windscreen the need to use external screens is just as useful. Normal fit is around the one door and the other side fits in the sliding window. If you use the drop down overcab bed, the screens are useful at all times to reduce the light levels if you like it dark!

    A personal opinion - but I prefer interior screens.
    Why?

    When you go to open up, and pack away to move off (or even just to let some light in during the day) and they're all wet or covered in snow - it's just a wet messy chore!!! food for thought....

    You will be able to get screens. I don't have experience of Taylormade but we have had SilverScreens for several years on a B630. The offside (UK) fits into the sliding window and the nearside into the door.
    Give them a call and tell them what model and year it is.

    We use our "winter screen" in the summer too. Much better at reflecting sunlight and keeping the interior cool.
