    Have recently bought a Hymer A Class B564 and have been taking advantage of the lovely weather. My problem is the heat that comes through the windscreen when the sun gets up. I feel as if I am sleeping in front of an electric fire!

    Does anyone have any recommendations on thermal windscreen covers please?

    I have Vancomfort on my Hymer. Specifically designed in Germany for the particular model, wouldn't be without them in heat or cold.:BigGrin:

    PS . Forgot to mention - externals only, don't bother with internal ones.

    As Bigfoot says - Silverscreens are well worth the effort and money. Would not go without them, summer or winter. The minute the sun gets on that big windscreen it's like being in a green house.

    I was lucky enough to find some on Ebay, but I would have paid the going rate for new ones if I hadn't.

    silver screens

    hi you can get the originl silver screens made for your hymer they fit on the outside of the van, and will keep you cool, the only problem is they are ok if your staying in one place for a few days, because you will get fed up with them, if your only putting them on for one night. just google silver screens...:Smile:

    Hi all,

    Thanks for all the replies, you've all been really helpful. We will look into all suggestions, and hopefully my nights frazzling in the heat will soon come to an end - not that I am complaining about this sunny weather though.....

    In the mean time, turn the van around :Smile: If the heat from the sun is a big problem.

    Even something (cardboard, a big towel, sheet) draped over the screen will help.

    Hi Bob and Val,

    Sorry, I forgot to answer your PM. I think we will stick to the external screens, but thanks for the offer anyway.
