Many RVer's have sun screens hanging from their awnings, so I researched and bought a sunscreen to hang from my large awning. I thought it was pretty nice until I tried to roll up the awning with it's electric motor.
It never moved. I thought that the motor had failed , so I called the awning guy, and when he came, he discovered that it was not the motor, but the weight of the sunscreen that was too much for the awning motor. So I returned the sunscreen for a refund, and went back to the drawing board.
One of my RVing neighbors (Delores) told me that she bought solar screening material at the Ace Hardware in Blythe, California, and that she hung it on the inside of her windows on a curtain rod. I looked hers over and decided it was a pretty good idea. She said to make sure it allows for air flow through it.

I have a cactus garden on my motorhome dash. I know these plants need sunlight. I have to remember not to hang solar screening between the sun and the cacti, but will try hanging it to the rear of the cacti and block the sun from the motorhome living room. I don't think I will get as great an effect that way, but the cacti will survive better, so it will be okay.
