Bubble window blinds

How do y'all leave the blinds in your roof windows when parked, up or down?

Our blinds are sagging a little and I wondered if it mattered whether they were up or down when parked. I have always left them down.

We leave ours up so they don't fade or get sun damaged. One of the few things I don't like about our Aframe are the blinds they should have tracks on the side so they don't sag and don't rub against the side walls when the camper is closed.

My camper is stored outside and uncovered so I leave mine closed (down) to block the sunlight and protect the interior. Presuming that, like in my home, replacing blinds is cheaper than replacing sun bleached furniture. Plus, they stay down when camping, so it is one less thing to do when striking camp.

We keep our blinds pulled up most of the time (parked or in transit) & pulled down in the evening (for privacy) or if it gets too hot with the sun shining in the window.

The trailer is rarely closed up (err, folded down) as she is kept popped up inside the shop until we hit the road. I loke to wander in and out & hang out watching videos or reading. If DH cant find me in the house or yard, he pokes his head thri the Magic Mesh screen to discover me lpunging on the sofa bed, feeling empowered with my own remote control to the small tv inside the trailer. Haha

Anyway, no sag on the blinds as of yet (knock on wood)
