    I bought universal ones for our transit but they are a bit big for our windscreen, the windscreen being a bit smaller on the transits.
    We bought the millenco, good quality too.
    We originally bought the universal no name ones from a show, took them back the next day as they didn't fit.too small. Better bigger then too small! !

    Outside will work better certainly for condensation.

    I made some out of insulated camping mats very cheap cut to window size and Bobs your uncle:party2:youcan get them on Amazon £4.43 each probably cheaper if you look around.
    Would agree that external silver screen best for cab.

    Agree with the above externals are better no condensation.

    Externals are ok but no good for wild camping or some aires

    Never had a problem on Aires or when wilding they only take few seconds to remove if you have to move on,but never had to.:imoutahere:

    I agree ,I always use them when wilding and have used them on the few Aires I've been on .
    We wild camp a lot and in my opinion if you don't feel confident enough to put them on your probably not going to sleep very well!
    We do however not bother in summer.

    Do you really want to go outside and face the Eastern European thieves trying to get in?

    Never worried about external blinds on proper aires though.

    with externals you can still hook them over the doors from inside and as Terry says above they will cover the screen inside if you want. way better to fit them outside though as they reduce condensation to pretty much nothing
