MCD Shades Installed!

Here are pictures of the final install on the MCD shades for the salon area (center two windows) of Katie's Coach.

There is one picture of the OEM day/night shades included.

I arrived at MCD at 7:58 a.m. The two techs came out about 8:20 and were done by 8:45. These folks know their stuff! I had measured the dinette table window a bit too long, so they lowered the legs on the window box just enough to get the shade in. Looks fantastic. Retrospectively, I think I forgot to deduct the 1/2" from the measurement as the instructions clearly stated on the order form. My bad. But they fixed it up just fine.

I was next to a beautiful Fleetwood Revolution LE, folks from Houston, that just had their front and pilot/co pilot windows done the afternoon before, he told me it took them only 2 hours to get the entire system installed.

GREAT folks at MCD. It was nice to meet Joy and Handsome, the very friendly kitty cat in the lobby that is part of the MCD Family. Great folks.

Even more, I love my shades. They look very clean and blend so well with the existing decor/colors, I couldn't have ordered a new coach any better.......



For those astute viewers: What recent remodel job needs some attention in the picture of the old day/night shade?

Yes, and what a difference they make.

Handling, driveability, control, ride, bumps, sway, everything is remarkably better with the new shocks.

And yes, Sarah, I do love them, so easy and they are so nice looking.

Great product, and highly recommended, the MCD experience. And mine are just a manual single pull down!

We just had MCD Gold Series installed in our Fiesta for the dining/couch area and small bedroom window(three shades total). Love them. We are saving to have the cockpit done and the remaining bedroom window done.
