    i was about to buy the Front cabin door Ventilation contraptions, but just remembered that I have already bought the Comfortz Thermal Windscreen cover which I haven't used yet.
    Looking at photos the windscreen cover also covers the side windows so would this negate all the benefit of the Ventilation contraptions ?

    Yes, that’s one of the problems of the external cover. You could cut a hole over the ventilator.
    Personally I just use the internal blind, or no blind as not bothered by sunrise etc.

    You will still get some ventilation with the exterior cover as they are not a tight fit.

    They are both exellent and using the cover when the vents are in still gives some ventilation (less offcoarse)
    However you don't always use both the same time , external cover sometimes goes over just before sleeping for full blackout and to prevent condenstation on the inside of the front windscreen at night.
    The vents we put in direct at arrival on site , they also take up no space storing flat on the rear metal shelf .

    I've started storing our vents in the tailgate with the chairs.

    In summer when they are needed for the dog daytime they will go down the side of the bench seat.

    I also wonder if they could be stowed behind the table in the sliding door. I haven't tried, so it's just a thought for now.

    I think that you can buy a vent that bolts into the sliding window. If used in the sliding door you can still close the blind as normal.
