Ok, Badandy, I took some pictures for you but mine are not cellular and of course they will post sideways cause this PC hates me.








Here's a pic of the top



And the bottom so you can see how it's attached. The whole thing moves up and down on those strings.

Huh, so the sun shade goes up and down then, too?

Yes, it's essentially one long shade. The light blocker is the top portion and the transparent part is the bottom. If you want the light blocked, you just slide the blue part to the bottom and vise versa if you want to let some light in. If you want the whole window open, then you just push the whole thing to the top. It takes 2 hands to operate or it will go up or down lopsided. I like that they are attached to the wall so they don't bang around as you are driving or if the wind is strong while you are parked.

If I could remember my YouTube password then I would simply post a video for you to see them in action.

I have those same shades in mine. I like them OK but I had the same type of shade in another coach that were vertical instead of horizontal. They were a lot easier to use and stayed straight. The horizontal ones are a pain to get up and down keep straight. Just my opinion... and the wife's too! LOL!

And since anyone looking for day night shade info will know the place too look is in gatorgirl's safe place. For goodness sake, use different threads for different topics.

By the way the blinds do not travel up or down the strings. Those are for tension adjustment.

Andy. Camping world can order you a custom set in many choices of color.

Rick, I have no clue who makes them or where you can buy them. They came with this bus. I am not trying to advertise them. Andy wanted to see what they looked like so I showed him where he asked about them...in this thread.
Tom, I would, however like to know where I can get a set of the vertical ones. Would like to use them across the back.


I honestly have no clue how they work, just that one of mine is broken and the string is loose.

That's right. They are the direct factory folks and have helped me with shades.

If I started a thread for every little thing Randy would ban me.... Searching is thread-agnostic anyway.
