Anyone want any day/night shades CHEAP?

The DW has been wanting to do that. Did you order a specific brand ? I assume that they would have to be real light cause there's not much meat in the wall to hold them up right ?

Which park are you staying at on the lake? Been wanting to go but OK's non-existent reservation policy makes me nervous about going only to be told no more spots when we get there late on a Friday...

We got 2" aluminum blinds from blinds galore, been up for over a year with no problems, also bought some small curtain cleats to tie the bottom of blinds down. Love them would have nothing else!

I have aluminum blinds in mine and I hate them. It doesn't take much to bend them and my windows have the nobs that you turn to open. The blinds get hung on them. I am looking at a pleated stringless shade from lowes (allan and roth). About $1000.00 to change them all.

Steve's Blinds. Shouldn't be much if any heavier than the day/night shades.

Just ask around. This guy did a wonderful job. Dug the footings and finished the concrete. I put the wire and plastic down. I also say put the mesh in. Others may say no.

The poster looking to add a pad should have no problems with just adding fibers to the mix, no need for wire mesh. I would prep the pad with gravel though, and not pour onto the dirt. Would also tie into any existing concrete to keep it from seperating.

On other trailers we've had, they cut the slats off around the knobs so they didn't interfere. Never had a problem with them. The day/night shades are a nightmare with the knobs and nothing you can do about it. We seldom open the windows except in the bedroom and it doesn't have the knob.

Do you know what that cost would be to lay down asphalt with a good gravel base rather than concrete?

I have an idea of moving my trailer to the fenced part of my yard. This will be a reasonable sized job....culvert, large gate and maybe a tree or two, but if I do I am gonna pour pads for the tires and jacks. Less evasive and ALOT cheaper. Just a thought.
