We currently have the wrap around screen from bromsgrove. We've had it for 4 or 5 years and it has done a great job. However, the last year or so it has become more difficult to put on and we're really having to pull on it to get it to go on the bus. Not sure if the bus has grown or the screen has shrunk! Wink

Anyway, this struggle to get it on has resulted in rips and the coating on the inside if the screen has started to peel away.... it's time to get a new one!

The question is, do we stick to bromsgrove and get another 4 or 5 years or do we try rainbow screens, which are more expensive, although they now have a drop screen version which means the screen can stay in place on the side windows but be lowered at the front during the day.

What do rainbow screen owners think of their screens? Do you have any pics to share?

Cheers

We have looked at Rainbow screens on numerous occasions at shows but have yet to actually buy one although that is probably has more to do with the available colour choice and 'options' rather than quality. That said, I have always impressed by the quality of the Bat wraps from Bromsgrove.

Take a look at www.buseyes.co.uk too for some other options.

We love our Rainbow screen with the eyes cheers

The internal blackout blind means it's very dark in the front, which is great.

I'm not sure why you'd want a drop screen bit? If anything, the ability to open either front door without unhooking the blind would be good, but it's no big deal to unhook and then hook it over the window again.

Depends what you're looking for, I guess.

Here's Bumble with her Rainbowscreens on while in France. So theirs fit the Brazibays; eyes and name were extra.

So after much deliberation and having a wee look at different covers at shows and campsites etc, we went for Buseyes!

The company were really good as delivery was 3-5 weeks and we would be on holiday at that point, so we ordered on a Sunday and sent a wee email asking if they would send to the campsite, they phoned the following day saying they would have it done within the week for us so we'd have it before our holiday Smile

Practically its easier to put on that the Bromsgrove that we had originally, but it seems that others didn't have the same issue that we had, so maybe our original cover just wasn't quite right scratch

Lots of different options from Buseyes if you want to customise too.

FAB looking screen cover! Smile

Scooby has not (yet) experienced any of the issues you have had with your Bromsgrove version.
We are therefore still happy with ours  . . .

Love it , we have a Bromsgrove one too and again not shared your problems.
I believe Buseyes are owned by MadMatz and they are always very helpful.

I'm not sure Bromsgrove have continued with the BAT Wrap so it's good that Buseyes have the Brazilian templates and can look after the group.
