Question Mini blinds versus Day/Night shades

My wife wants to replace the mini blinds in our TT with the stock day/night shades.

I'd like to hear what peoples opinions on these two types of shades are before I invest any money to buy new shades.

Do you have a preference, and if so why do you like one over the other?

Thanks!

I personally like the day/nights because they don't bend or rattle, and they are easy to operate. Also, no cords to dangle down for babies to grab!

We love ours, have not had any problems to speak of yet.... They go up and down with ease. I think that they look better than the mini blinds do. About the only drawback would be as the shades age they will be harder to clean than the mini blinds.

We swapped out our accordian style day/night shades for the Roll Ease type of shades on a pull chain. they work great and you don't have the uneven draw of the accordian style or the broken strings.

Not heard of roll ease...do you have suggestions or a link to them so I could check them out? Are they intended for RV and TT or home use?

If you like it dark in the morning (5AM) then the roll blinds are better. We had them in our last 2 trailers and now we have the day/night shades. New trailer is much brighter inside. However now we have so many windows we can't justify the cost. We bought sleep masks instead.

Our new V-Lite has the day/night shades and I prefer them over the min blinds in our old Edgewater. The new ones are far more kid tolerant as the first time our 2 year old grand daughter was in the Edgewater she bent one of the blinds trying to look throught it by grabbing the middle and pulling. That can't happen with the day night ones. And those little plastic clips that hold them in place don't take much to bend to the point of useless.

I may be in the minority. Our old trailer had mini-blinds, the current one has day/night shades. My Wife loves the day/nights, I personally hate them. I prefer mini-blinds. I think they look more home-like.

I'm gonna have to chime in on the side of day/night shades. Our old camper had a couple of blinds and they banged around too much. Day/nights are easier to use.
