We've got the Taylormade internals. They've had a fair bit of use over 4 years and are showing no signs of wear.

External screens have been considered but rejected mainly for the fact that you have to go outside in the rain to put them on or take them down and their storage if wet. (Yes, I know they come in a waterproof bag!)

The other major factor for us is the fact that we use a lot of aires when touring in France. We've stayed on about 80 different ones and up to now without bother. However we always reverse into position (and_back_up our blocks if used) in order that we are in a position to leave quickly if we felt we should. With internal screens we could up and leave without getting out of the 'van even if it meant leaving the blocks.

Can I just add that in the first place we don't stay if we have any qualms about the aire and_have_rejected some and moved elsewhere.

Ready for a quick getaway!!!
Do you rob banks to pay for your trips?? 8O
or are they that dodgy :eek:
We have never had to move after settling down so no, not dodgy.
What you can't do is foresee just what might happen after you have settled.

Sometimes the best looking places can be a problem. I remember on the aire at Annecy le Vieux all was fine until the late evening when the car park adjoining was turned into a race track by local youth. This until 4.00am!

Last year we were back there but having had the experience we used the aire for its services (water and dumping) but used a carpark about 400m away with about 10 others for overnighting.

Like campsites, aires vary in quality of facilities and location.
