2 in Faux Wood Blind mod

We were at the Indy RV show back in January and noticed a lot of campers that had blinds instead of the pleated day/night shades. I've had trouble from day 1 with my day/night shades. They are 4 string blinds and I've restrung them once already and what a PITA. We broke yet another string at the end of last season and decided to try something else. I ended up ordering these blinds from Steves Blinds and the total cost including shipping for both blinds was $65. They came with all necessary hardware including hold downs and extensions. Turnaround time was 7 days. They also came with their own valance but I chose to stay with the originals. Installation was easy and it's really nice to be able to open a blind without bending over something and worrying if something is about to break. I know it doesn't quite look like it [because of the camera flash] but they match the slide-out fascia, cabinets etc. The lines you see out the window is because the camper is covered for the winter. They weigh about 3lbs more that the day/night shades. Click image for larger version

these look very nice - will copy your idea when my shades' strings fail!

At the recent Houston RV show I saw several TT's with the wood (or wood-like) shades. I also saw several with double roll-down shades which I took a liking to - till I went looking for prices. Would love to upgrade our pleated shades with these but I'd have to get a big ole basket and fill it with $$.
