    It is not recommended
    For your safety you may need to start engine and drive without having to go outside Internals are a better bet

    Personally not when wild camping, if you have to move off for any reason in a hurry then you have to remove the screens from the outside, before you can move.

    Far better to use internal screens you can remove from inside.

    Beat me to it Geo

    We have one of these kind of silver screens.
    If ever we proper wild camp which is quite rare , we use it without the top layer on. It still has a good thermal quality , though obviously not as good as it is with the top layer on.
    There are 3 teenagers 2 adults and 2 dogs in our MH and we never get condensation when using the silver screen. Even in - temps :thumb:
    I'd recommend one , you can pick them up if local . Though the street is more like a narrow dirt track so dont be going in the MH:Wink:

    no only when parked up proper

    We use an internal curtains when parked up - wild camp or have to stop over... the outside window screen cover only is used on camp sites and shows.. just in case you need to move....

    Had to do that many years back when we parked in a supermarket car park and the lorries arrived at 4 a.m to unload next to us.. soon got up and moved in the underpants.. so not a good idea to have to get out dressed like that to remove the main screen covers.. so the answer as far as I am concerned is no do not use them.
