Measuring Instructions for Pleated Shades:

Measure width first, then length to nearest 1/8". Measure width from left to right and length from top to bottom. Please measure carefully; shades are custom items and not returnable.

Inside Mount Measuring:
Inside mount shades and blinds are installed inside the window casing.

  • Measure the exact inside width if the window casing from left to right inside edge.
  • Measure the exact inside length of the window casing from top to bottom inside edge.
  • Do NOT take any deductions. Allowances are made at the factory to ensure fit.

    Outside Mount Measuring:
    Outside mount shades and blinds are installed outside the window casing. The shade or blind will cover an area larger than the window itself.

  • Measure the exact width to be covered. Allow enough extra coverage to ensure I proper light control and privacy.
  • Measure the exact length to be covered. Again, allow for proper coverage.

    Caring for your Shades:

    Shades should be kept in the closed or up position when not in use, to maintain pleat retention and minimize dirt and soil build-up. Do not store shades in the down position. This may cause some loss of pleat retention if the shades are not operated on a consistent basis. Shades can be easily cared for by simply dusting or using a vacuum cleaner attachment. Do not use spot remover, household cleaners or detergents to remove soiled spots, as these may cause damage to fabric or loss of color from fading.

    NOTE: If your recreational vehicle must be stored for an extended period of time, store shades in the up position and insert temporary material inside window frame (cutout cardboard).

    NOTE: Fabric is only 72” wide. If the shade is over 72” wide, the shade has to have panels "pieced" together. The seams meet up where the shades are strung. Any shades over 72” are built with this process.

    day/night shades

    These shades are great! They came with our new Cougar 5th wheel camper. They filter the light for daytime use like curtain sheers in your home, and block the light at night so noone can see in, or you can put them all the way up to open the window.

    We replaced our metals blinds with the Day/Night Shades and LOVE them!! They are quiet while riding and really keeps the light out if we want to sleep in! We have the insulated ones and when we were camping in the Rockies last fall they certainly helped keep out Class A warmer! We will definately put them in any RV we own in the future!

    These blinds do a good job, but when the string breaks there is evidently no alternative than to replace the blind. It is definately not a DYI job to repair them.

    I purchased 8 Day/Night Pleated Shades to replace mini-blinds in my 2-month-old Class A. I received them from the vendor in a timely manner and they where packaged to protect the shades from damage. I removed and re-installed these shades in less than 2 hours without any difficulty. They are cost effective to buy and look great.

    I absolutely love my day/night pleated shades. I have them throughout my RV and would recommend them to anyone. The day shade allows light to filter in, the night keeps it quite dark and no one can see in.

    We had this type of blind in our last rv and we have them in our current rv. They can be stubborn too move/adjust -sometimes requiring both hands. They don't always stay open while driving, but that could mean they need tightening. Overall they're very effective. They provide light and privacy during the day and a complete window covering in the evening. Only occasionally do I have mine completely open. With Great Danes and frequent dog shows I know about dust and it doesn't seem to be a problem for our light colored blinds.

    Material and installation

    I had been given some false information by a Camping World parts person and was very skeptical until the blinds arrived. They were easy to install and met all of my expectations. I feel that the false information had been given by someone that did not read and understand the how to measure instructions.

    After 6 years of mostly full time living, and the hot south eastern USA sun, the strings on our shades have rotted. Because we like them so much, we will replace each shade as we need them. We have three to replace right now. I think the strings on any blinds would rot in this sun. Some one told us you could restring them, but it was quite a chore...we will just buy new ones as needed.

    Great Shades

    Thank you for offering us to purchase these wonderful shades. We looked at atleast 50 campers before purchasing ours last fall, and the only thing I didn't like about our final choice was that our new camper DOES NOT have the day/night pleated shades in it. So NOW I have the option to purchase them and be totally satisfied with our new camper. Thank You Very Much Camping World.

    I ordered one shade to see how easy or difficult it would be to install and see how they last after a few months. As long as you measure correctly, they are a breeze. The install went very well. I've had the shade for about 3 months and have had no problem with it and I use my RV seceral times a week. I am not a full timer but close to it. I am now about to order them for the rest of the windows. They are inexpensive and work great!

    Great when they are new

    I loved my day/night shades when they were new but as time has gone by and not that much time, (less than 2 years) the shades that fit smaller windows are all breaking. I am a fulltimer and so I pretty much open my shades daily. The strings that go up through the holes of the shades have gotten weak finally until they snapped. Now my shades are worthless. I have to roll them up and "rig" it to stay up. 4 out of 5 smaller ones are broken and it makes me sad b/c the darkening half really did a great job of keeping sun out on really hot days. I will be looking for wooden shades, vertical for the large windows maybe. I am starting my search now and will replace them all once they all break or I get sick of messing with it, whichever comes first. One more annoying fact about this type of shade is the fact that in front of my large windows I have large pcs. of furniture like recliners, couch and dinette. I have to put all of my strength into pushing them up. I am not able to get really close to the window is why so my arms are out-stretched and I dont have the benefit of extra strength when your arms are closer to your body when lifting something. I either climb on my furniture like a monkey or strain myself. Either way is not pretty. I am looking for something easier to work....btw, I am in shape and 29 yrs old. Maybe its b/c I am so short (5'0")

    We replaced a couple of the blinds in our motorhome bedroom. They were exactly the size as ordered and the installation was very easy. They were made perfectly. The shipping seemed to be higher than it should have been but we are happy with the purchase.

    Day Night Shades are great. If your cord breaks just find someone that can restring it. Go to google and search on day night shade repair there are folks out there that can record/string your shade. You can even mail your shade to them....Day Tripper RV Day Night Shade Repair can be found in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex, they also take mail-in's. ...Don't buy new ones just get the old ones restrung.

    We just installed 9 shades that we bought through Camping World. The ordering was efficiently handled over the telephone and arrived sooner than the estimated delivery date. Handy husband with a little help from me easily installed the shades and then made the necessary tension adjustments. So far we are very pleased with the product! Note: Request fabric samples before placing order.

    Our new night shades look fantastic. My wife and I took out the old verticle blinds and installed the new night shades in about four hours. We did six windows and could not believe how easy they were to install. The new look is amazing.

    Storage position

    I ordered the shades with the blackout option and they are very attractive and fit well. I intended to leave them in the down position to protect the interior of my 5th wheel from the sun when it is stored. Unfortunately, the manufacturer says they must be stored in the raised position to maintain the pleats. I feel this is something that should be mentioned in the description of the product. If I had known this initially, I would not have purchased them.

    If I could return them I would do so in a heart beat. They came with no instructions and I could find no video online. All I could find was how to re-string them, which should have been my first red flag. Trying to install them caused a huge fight with hubby who wanted to toss them all in the trash, but we went ahead and figured it out. I still do not understand how to make the night portion stay up in place so the day shades can work. It was a good idea, but I give it a big fail. Also, when the RV is not in use they must be stored upright and some sort of other sun blocking system must by used to keep the sun out. I have a cover for our Class C, so not too big a deal except we don't always cover it. Anyway, when these die (and it shouldn't be too long from the looks of them) I will try the roller shades or big vinyl blinds.
    Pros: They're pretty
    Cons: Bad quality, Fragile

    Really disappointed

    Our other blinds in our RV have been with us for over 15 years. We decided to order this new shade, for one particular window, and it arrived in good time so the service was really good. However, that order was in November of 2014 and the strings started to fray so badly that I had to have a company to come in today and restring. I do not believe I will order again from Camping World but when you do order from them, you are really not aware that your order will be taken, then reversed, and sent out for fulfillment somewhere else, and you will be re-billed once again. I think Camping World should tell you when you order that this will happen. And who the company is that your order will be fulfilled by, before you place your order.
