    Hello everyone, I've been lurking for a while and I see a few familiar names from another motorhome forum.

    Can you buy material to make external silver screens ? The wife feels quite confident with the sewing machine (at last) and has offered to have a go.

    A link would be great. See you all around.:thumb:

    Thanks Jim, I might have to revise my tactics having read your post :thumb:

    Do you use internals with single glazing ? If so, what's the condensation like ? As I said, we were away last week and the windows were dripping.:Sad:

    Hi Pat

    Another benefit of internal is that they are easier and quicker to remove if you need to move on unexpectedly ..

    We don't have any screens, all the windows are dual paned, except the windscreen, condensation has never been a problem.
    We always keep the roof lights partly open, use the exhaust fan when cooking and when it's cold have 2 oil filled heaters on most of the time .. occasionally the windscreen gets a bit damp, I guess heavier curtains would help but it's no big deal.. it's been a plan to make an internal for it but not got round to it yet, not so much for condensation but to combat the heat when abroad..
