Based on what your wrote it sounds like the Day/Night shades are very important. What would FR do differently than your dealer? Would new wall paper or wall covering be installed so there are no visible filled holes?
I like the mini blinds better but in your case you will be reminded every time you open or close the blinds that you didn't get what you wanted.
The number of weeks you will be without your new unit will come and go no matter what you decided. The difference will be the end result.
With all that said, what a bummer....
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
