Window shades in new Cedar Creek

Looking at the pictures of the new, later 2014, Cedar Creek's, looks like the shades are different.
They don't look like the traditional accordion type day/night shades. Anyone seen these in a new CC lately and what kind are they?

They look like the MCD shades are at least something like them, trust me a much better choice then the old day night shades, I finally learned how to restring them, not that bad just takes time. Next camper will have the new shades, the WIFE has already decided that.

I think every manufacturer who used the day/night shade has moved to a different style. They are almost all having trouble with strings breaking or fraying and making a huge mess.
On the flip side if you learn how to re-string them you can make some money..!

We removed our Day/night shades in large back window and replaced them with regular drapes

We replaced our day/night with Levolor's, from Lowe's.

We just had a factory tour last week. Good tour, by the way. The new models all come with the roll-down shades - one is semi-transparent (kind of a light gray color) and the other is opaque (light brown, as I recall). I like them much better than the day/night shades (with the strings) in our 2013 34 RLSA. They are very easy to raise and lower to/from any position (full up/full down or anything in between). Someday I'm going back up to the factory and have the new ones installed as a replacement. Don't know the cost.
