    Hi all,

    We are after some external screens, mainly to combat condensation on the cab windows as the temperature drops.

    We are not planning on trips to -15, Alps etc locations,
    just a bit chilly -5 to -10 UK.

    any recommendations please,

    Cheers,
    2dogs

    Thanks Popeye,

    any idea on prices for a 2011 Boxer?

    shame prices aren't on the web site.

    Cheers

    I really don't recall, I do recall purchasing their demo screens which saved a few bob and when they arrived they were brand new.

    I do believe that they're fairly dear £200 ish or so, but not certain.:thumb:

    I'm talking rubbish Here you go

    They are very good but strangely do come up for sale very often. Not sure why, got mine 2nd hand took only a couple months to find one , so I would not go for new one too costly for what it is

    I got the Taylormade long line also, as stated covers the bonnet grilles and also has magnets in the side window covers which keeps them nice and tight against the doors....£120 new:thumb:

    Hi funsters,
    still the best........
    theoriginal Silver Screen from a small firm in Yorkshire.
    Several options available (fold down, fold up if required, and privacy screen enabling you to look out, but not vice versa)
    Bought mine 10 months ago (for a Ducato) at a cost of £150.
    Works like a dream, and so easy to put on, and take off.
    Comes with linen carry case for storage.
    Hope this helps .....

    We will be selling our Silver Screen Paragons [the ones with drop down panel] in January when we change vans from 2011 Ducato to a Mercedes base. Will only have been used for about 4 or 5 weeks in total as the van is garaged when not in use please PM me if interested.

    Thanks all for the replies:thumb:

    anyone know of differences between the manufacturers?
    number of layers, materials etc,
    I thinke Taylormade are cheaper off the shelf so are you paying for a name?

    Cheers

    silverscreens the original and better build quality and thicker so my choice. i know of sets 10+ years old and still in regular use

    taylormade cheaper knock off copy, thinner and the 2 sets ive had over the years have been badly made as have others ive seen. last a couple of years before piping round the edge and joints start seperating. I returned one faulty set at a show and was quickly ushered away from the paying public and given a refund provided I agree to be quiet



    sorry forgot to say, with the silverscreens. you can have an optional velcro in panel that you can see through in daylight looking out but keeps the sun off for the dogs
