Big difference with the blinds down, just make sure they are aluminum blinds, and not vinyl. We melted our vinyl blinds while in Arizona this past February...

I am with the blinds down crowd. Store with blinds down to help protect from the sun and see no reason to raise for traveling.
I have the cloth day/night shades.

I like the idea of leaving them down to reduce fabric bleaching of the couches, etc and keeping the inside cooler. Great ideas. Thanks for the responses.

When we purchased our first set of day/night cloth blinds they told us to keep them up, so they kept the pleats.
We're in the process of replacing ours with MCD shades, much better product and no strings to fray and break.
