    Having used these on my previous home I am looking to purchase for my new Van, Fiat Ducatto. Just wondering if anyone knows if they are compatable with the existing Seitz fan blind fitted to the side window. Also I know there is a normal windscreen version and also a longer one available that covers part of the bonnet at not much more cost wise. Can anyone comment on ads and dis ads of the two versions.
    Thanks

    If you call silver Screens they are aware of most types of motorhomes and will ensure you get the right one. They asked us last time we ordered if we had those blinds as they are an issue they can deal with.

    external silver screens fit over the door cassette blinds without issue as the pockets that fit over the doors are generous enough to cope with the extra width.

    the version with the added skirt helps stop draughts coming into the cab through the vents. no real drawbacks to them, just slightly bigger when rolled up. packed size tends to be about 30" by 6" round 700mm x 150mm approximately

    Everyone says no condensation with silver screens well I got my first set at Christmas and we get !!! Condensation but not as bad as not having them
    Could it be because we use the shower in the van ?? Or any other ideas

    Later versions (after 2010?) of door blinds have a 'chunkier' profile and need a wider 'pocket' to go over them. As sdc77 mentioned, Silver Screens will ask you about this when you order.

    I've seen Taylormade screens with the longer length to cover the bonnet grilles, not sure if Silver Screens do that. At one time they made a separate bonnet cover (covered entire bonnet!). When I spoke to them they said that was made to keep snow out - they don't do that one anymore.

    The bonnet grilles don't seem to let cold air into the cab. If you switch the heater to 'recirculate' when you park up, you will hear flaps closing - that stops the draughts. For the odd occasions when we do get significant snow in the UK, I cut a couple of pieces of magnetic vinyl to size and just pop them on top of the vents.

    Silver screens

    The original silver screens are definitely the best and mine originally purchased for a Mondial Boxer conversion without the Sietz side screens does fit my current van which has them.
    Tip from the manufacturers of the silverscreen - Do not use the inner blinds when using the silverscreen as you may get condensation forming on the blind fabric with the obvious drawbacks. :Smile:

    In response to how big they are packed i would roughly say about a meter tall by about 30cm diameter in the bag they come slightly smaller inside the packet though, the ones Johns cross sell are brilliant and are all model specific so they will get the right one for your vehicle and great quality too hope this helps.

    Top marks to Silver Screen. We had a mh where the side windows didn't have blinds incorporated and then we changed the mh to one which had Remis blinds fitted to the side windows. This meant that the silver screen wouldn't fit over these side doors. Contacted Silver Screens who said to send the screen back and they would alter it to fit the wider side doors. All done within 3 days - cost £30.
