Hi all, Can anyone recommend a thin external windscreen cover for our 2019 PVC.

It must be as compact as possible when folded away. Our previous cover was just too cumbersome, and being quite thick it also allowed rain water to come in across the door seals and filled one of the door bins up with water.

So ideally we would like a thin, compact cover, folds away easily and ideally would also fold down at the front to allow daylight in on the days we are not moving.

We have recently been using an internal screen but its just a faff to keep putting on and does not really limit condensation. We did meet a couple in Portugal earlier in the year who had a French made cover which looked ideal. But being a bit of a numpty I didn't take a note of the name and cannot find it on line.

Many thanks for your recommendations

We have a Hindermann 4 season external cover which has proven quite good this winter.
Has a Velcro strip that allows the front section to drop allowing a clear view, it can be removed totally if you wish leaving the door sections in place.
It is all held in place using supplied bungees after fitting over the door coroner at each side.
It is reasonably thin and not the usual quilted type.
No or very little internal condensation during the recent cold spell as well.
Can recommend it.

We got one from custom covers. Is not thermal just black PVC backed single thickness. Tailor made for ducato says it folds up to fit in glove box(it doesn't). Doesn't fold down in day though. But it is very blackout and does fold quite small.

Minster Polar Screen covers have thin pieces of the silver material that hook over the door, so no need for the thick material to be shut in the door.

You do have to fit it correctly though, as I did have water ingress once, but that was down to the way I’d fitted it.🤷‍♂️

It folds neatly into it’s own bag for easy storage.👍

I think there’s a discount code for members as well.🤔

I have this external screen. It really helps with internal condensation as well as preventing the screen freezing in the winter.

I have been really happy with these.
