    Heading through Eastern Europe now and I see it's about 5 degrees colder than at home.
    We've started using our heating in the evenings and hence our LPG is going to need apt more topping up now..
    Today we got out our silver screens to see how they fitted and they do a lovely job on the outside.
    Does anyone use them indoors ever?
    Ie on a aire where you might need to leave in a hurry or just for ease?
    Hubby thinks it's not really cold enough to use them yet but I think we could save LPG by putting them on at dusk.
    What outside temp to you start to use yours -? -people who travel in winter.

    On our old van we had indoor stick on screens but with our new van we bought some silver screen SH blinds from a fellow camper on a CC site!!
    These are so much better!
    We used them in summer to keep cool and last weekend in Derbyshire as it's dropped colder! We do like to drop the front down during the day as we miss the light.

    Use as soon as condensation starts to show,such a pain mopping up with towels and then having to dry them.

    All the time. They are brilliant for keeping the mhome cool in summer and warm in autumn/winter. In my humble opinion it will certainly being costing you more by using more gas. We do lower the middle during the day when it is nice.

    All the time now, but on the outside. Heat retention in winter as we don't get too hot in the Summer as we have a huge over cab bulge :) and for condensation prevention. At the NEC this weekend, didn't use them as didn't think it was cold enough and then spent an age engine running trying to clear the windscreen. :rolleyes:

    All the time with an option to lower them during the day if required
