EZ Snap window shades

Does anyone have any experience with the EZ snap window shades? They are basically a snap on window shade/screen that blocks the UV rays and helps to keep the RV cooler.

While camping at the beach last week, the temps were in the 90's with 75% humidity and heat index over 100. There was no shade to speak of, we had our awnings out when we could but often we were forced to retract the awnings due to the strong ocean breeze. I believe my AC's were running as well as can be expected. Inside the trailer never got over 79 degrees but if I could have kept the awnings out, I may have been able to keep it to around 75. This is what got me thinking of adding the exterior shades to prevent the heat from getting into the rig in the first place. I know about reflectix, but I like looking out the windows

Here's a link to the product.

I've been thinking I need to get some kind of shade for mine. Going to spend 10 days in the Fla. Keys and I know it's gonna be hot. Order as soon as you can so you can let us know if they work.

I'm certain someone in the JOF has them and posted about them. I searched, but no hits.
