Default Driver's Window and Entry Door Blinds

What do you all have on the drivers window and the entrance screen door. We are missing both of these blinds. I am thinking maybe a roller shade, but that would be flapping on the screen door. Pictures please.



Thanks

Our M380 has the same manual pleated shades on the driver’s window and screen door as are on the rest of the windows (ones secured by the tight strings on both sides). Coach is in the shop so best available photo is not very good. You can barely see pleated shade to the left of the dog’s head. If no one else responds, I’ll take some better photos when I pick it up (hopefully end of week).

Blind attachment detail

As with the other window blinds, bottom section is translucent; keep pulling and the opaque section comes down. On sunny days from the driver's side, the pic shows how I usually have it deployed. My suction-cup cell phone holder is what's blocking the blind from coming down further. Hope this helps.

Thank you Jim for the pictures! This does help.

I think the pleated blinds will definitely be the way to go on the screen door to keep them from blowing too much in the wind with the door open.
Maybe look into a MCD type shade for the drivers window.

Tom. We have the same shades that in the picture both sides. The door shade is mounted in the inside of the screen door.

You bet. I redid an entire WB40's blinds in a few days a while back, order came very promptly, no issues whatsoever.

Thank you gentlemen.



I am sure once we start camping the neighbors won't want to see me in my skives when we have no blinds up from.
