I hear the wind gets under the Velcro and blows the covers off the screens.

I've heard a lot of things but haven't heard that rumor.
We haven't had that problem with the hook-n-loop closures. They are large and there are some for each side and top.

I bought this a week ago, and have used it once already...and I like it very much. The DW says it looks like the camper has a sleeping mask on

It connects to the camper in 4 ways...just to give some perspective.
  1. Loops around the top corner of each door. You actually close the door on it, after you've hooked it around the top corner of the door.
  2. Magnets. The ends of the cover has magnets embedded. Seems strong and keep the cover touching the van.
  3. Velcro around the mirrors. The cutouts go around the mirrors and the velcro connects underneath the mirrors.
  4. Windshield wipers get placed on top of the cover. Helps keep the bottom area of the cover on the windshield from coming up.

So while I haven't experienced high winds...it feels very secure to me. My biggest concern is theft...since it's on the outside of the camper.

The windshield cover I purchased (check beginning of thread) has been through several west Texas thunderstorms and the associated winds and has not budged and inch.

I have the cover that you can open up to see through it. Didn't think I needed/wanted but got it anyway. It is nice having the option to open the front window or the sides. So far no problem with wind, stays on pretty good.
