which day night shades to get?

we need to replace our shades/curtains in our motorhome. we have decided to get day and night shades (those you can see thru during the day and pull down the other shade for night time use) but need to know which are the best quality. we plan to install the remote controlled shades in the front and pull downs in the rest of the coach. can those of you who have them please make me some recommendations? if a vendor at the Redmond Good Sam Rally has the brand/style we decide to get, I'll have them installed there if not sooner.

thanks for your input...

Try MCD innovation duo day/night shade. We installed on all windows but the front window last sept and really like them.

MCD Innovations

They are located in McKinney, Tx and have a few dealers around the country.

+1 MCD costs more than the day/nite shades but are worth the $$

+2 for MCD Duo Shades. We removed our new day/night shades & replaced them with MCD shades we ordered at Redmond last year. DH did the uninstall & replace without much trouble. They are the best

+3 for MCD duo shades. We're in the process of changing our never-pleated-always-uneven out with MCD duos. Pricey=yes, but worth it. I love being able to see out with the privacy shades in place.

MCD all the way.

The regular pull-down shades aren't too hard to install if you want to do it yourself and save $$. However, they recommend only professional installation of the windshield shades for safety reasons so you know the shades are installed correctly and won't fall down while you're driving.
