No. I had Auto Motion Shades installed. I thought they'd have to remove the valance so I learned how to do it. Turned out they didn't have to.

That Sofa looks fantastic and I love the new window treatment colors! It's so similar to what I'm trying to go with! Where did you get the fabric?

Is that sofa a jack knife? I want to get rid of the jack knife for a regular sofa that folds out. The jack knife gobbles up so much floor space the way it sits out away from the wall like that.

Bob, what wonderful pics. That baby looks so happy! I see Bentley in the front co-pilot seat too... Thanks for sharing!!!! Great job!!

Bob, did you change the fabric on your slides, that strip around the galley/dinette slide and the bedroom slide? What/how did you do that?


Cliff, thanks for the help. I looked and looked at those shades and couldn't figure it out....!!

Thanks !

Here's the night shade. There's a day shade under it that's see through sun blocking material.

Thanks. Here's a link to them

It's the same principle that MCD uses. They're both a great replacement for the horrid pleated ones. A lot of Mfg are installing them as std equip these days.

Kent,
We bought the material on-line ($7/yd bulk). I will look thru our receipts to find the address for you.

The couch actually matches the driver/passenger chairs - my flash made it look white. It is a jacknife couch so it does fold out.

We did change the material around the strip on the galley/bedroom slides. Basically, just used a sharp knife and cut the material out and then used a wallpaper from Lowes. The wallpaper was self-sticking but we also applied a paste just to make sure it sticks - cut it into strips to fit and that was it. It looks great and it was the only way we could think of doing it with out having the hassle of reupholstering. My wife did all the material work except for the dinette that we had done at a local shop.

Windows. I need to make a correction. There are two long screws (one on each side of the window box located closer to the bottom) that are driven thru the material into the wall - this is why you can't see them (also the reason I suggest using a magnet to find the heads). Cliff mentioned this in his reply. I just remembered that when I reinstalled mine I used two small "L" brackets because I was affraid of splitting the wood. When you take these off the wall you will see that the construction is kind of flimsey. Keep looking and you will find them. I was as frustrated as you when I started this project but once you do one window the others will go quickly. The problem with the screws that attach it to the top of cabinet are difficult to see because it's hard to get your head in the right position to see them. My best advice is to put your day/night shades in the up position (I took them off after I removed the window box), then look up to the inner part of the window box where it attaches to the bottom of the cabinet and run your fingers until you feel the screw heads. Picture where you would drive screws to attach something flat to the bottom of the cabinet and you will find them. I hope this makes sense.

Makes sense. Very good, I appreciate it so much!

Y'all did a great job and its nice to hear how you did that insert color in the slide facias.

Thanks again, will keep you posted with progress.
