    I'm on my second silver screen. The first one was bought secondhand and fitted perfectly. The second one for a Pilote A class I phoned them up and they had a look, said (unlike all the others) " no need to measure, we can do one". They did and it arrived inside 3 days. Tried fitting it - perfect!! In both cases very well made. Can't comment about Taylor made ones, really, but both enjoy a good reputation

    Silver screens are on mine but would have also bought 2nd hand Taylor made. I think both have as good a reputation as each other.

    We have always had silverscreens but having read up on Taylor made they seem just as good. You will mit be dissapointing whichever you use.

    I have a taylormade windscreen cover and bike cover they were both cheaper than silver screen and service was excellent had both for two years now and windscreen been on all both winters no sign of wear fit perfect and good thickness looked at cheap ones at shows but no comparison I always say cheap is in the end expensive but that's my opinion

    Silverscreens here, never had a need for the others but they have a good following.

    Silverscreens says "The Original & the Best"

    I brought taylor made ones about 3 years, and they are on most of the time. Still look good.

    Dont laugh but the reason that they are left on the van is that I work 2 nights every 10 days and I sleep in the van, winter/summer. I should remove them but generally cant be bothered.

    Taylormade no problems. 51/2 years when we sold first m/h still as good as new.
    2nd m/h bought set -s/h still perfect after 5year. Set now using a bought s/h are 2yr old great.
    All only changed because of different shape cabs.

    Had both on the last van brought Silverscreens after the Taylormades got vert tatty and were absorbing water. The Taylormades were much bulkier and harder to stow I thought the Silverscreens were better quality.

    I bought a set of Silver Screens second hand for my 2015 Ducato. They were from the previous model (X250) but seem to fit ok. In case you were considering used. I paid under half the price for a new set.

    Second-hand Taylormade for us. No problems with them. Can't comment on Silverscreens.

    It seems that if you have no preference and don't mind buying second hand, why don't you search preloved, gumtree and Ebay see if there's a set of either going for a reasonable price.

    I had a silver screen on our 2006 Fiat and it was perfect. However we are not as pleased with the fit on our new 2015 Fiat with the long arm mirrors. In high winds it flaps on the side windows even with the mirrors folded in (as recommended). Where the mirrors touch it has now worn the silver away in 2 small areas on each side.
    Hope this helps in your decision making.
