Replacing Stock blinds with Day/Night Shades

Our new TT came with mini-blinds and the wife wants to repace them immediately with the Day/Night type window shades. Is this an easy one for one swap (special order size I think) or must they be installed by someone else?

Camping World sells custom made day/night shades.

Another choise would be Custom Roman Shades.

Ordered the stock blinds directly from FR and they came with hardware. Cut to exact size and were easy to install. FR even gave us a good price on them.
Like the look of something that was made specific to the rig.

Good luck with what ever choice you make.

I'd like to take our day night shades and put them in a campfire. Biggest pains in the butts I have ever used.

They are somewhat tempermental to get them to do what you want. If they are not set up or adjusted properly they are either too hard to move or they fall down by themselves.

They go up and down crooked all the time especially if the tension is different from the left string vs the right string of the blind.

It's kind of hard to explain.

Mini blinds just work. These need work.

Take a look at the Roll Ease or MCD type of shades using a draw chain drive. They work well and tend to be hassle free.
