Honeycomb blinds in the rv

Has anyone used honeycomb blinds in their rv. These look real nice and have a push up and down which is easy, they have mylar on the inside to block out the sun and are much more inexpensive than the new shades.

We replaced ours with Levolor blinds custom cut to lenght at Lowes. Not the cheapest but much better quality then alot that come with our HM. Got the room darkening ones so very dark when closed up.

I have posted this info before but now someone has specifically asked, so here it is again.

We replaced our day/night shades with Duel Position Pleated blinds from Bali, at Lowes. There was a 10 day wait for custom blinds in the colors we wanted. Bed room and living area are different colors. They can be raised or lowered from the top and bottom at any position. We usually lower them from the top about 6 inches. We can see out and get direct sun light and no one can see in. They are completely privacy functional even at night with all the lights on. There are no shadows from outside. They were about $125 per window. Install was easy once we removed the valances. We really like them

We just installed Levlor cordless cellular (honeycomb) room darkening shades in the drivers compartment on our Eagle. The two on the passenger side were roughly 22" and 30", the drivers side was 55" and the front was 96.5". While Lowes can custome cut, they can only be trimmed by about 1.5 inches per end. they had nothing in the store that would work for our measurments. So we ordered custom from them. That them delivered to the house (took about 7 days) and then installed them yesterday. The hardest part was the front blind and trying to work over the settering wheel and upside down. They work great. We will slowly start replacing all the day/night shades in the coach with the same thing.

Because of this post we went to Lowes today and looked at the the Honeycomb shades. We liked the Bali dual position 3/8" double cell shades. They are 20% off until 3/14/14 at Lowes. The person we talked to said we could go to Bali's web site and order up to 10 color swatches of the shades we like. So we did order some of the colors we like, free shipping. Here is the web site if interested.
