Roller Shades ?

I am thinking of replacing my window shades throughout my coach and I am considering roller shades for day and night shades. Some may be motor driven but I feel most will be manual.
My question is have you done this change, and are you satisfied with the change.
Also where did you order the shades and how was there product and service.

Thanks
Will

Roller Shades ?

I went with Auto Motion Shades. I had Custom Coach Works in Lakeland Fl. Install them. They never needed any service after that. They were the manual dual roller type which were very easy to operate and didn't have any of the motorized issues.

I did two large windows in dinning area and salon and two small ones by the recliner and in slide out. It was in 2011 and cost approximately $1100 installed as I recall.

I installed 4 Rollertrol powered night blinds in my friends' Country Coach recently. 2 small ones on the end windows in the big slide and 2 larger ones on the side wall windows behind the table and his recliners.
They are 12 volt powered so I got power from the light fixtures in the cabinets in the slide. I took the bottoms out of both cabinets to get to the wiring. Not difficult to do.
They operate from a single remote, singly or all together.
The quality of the blinds is excellent and they were not difficult to install.
It is a hoot to hit the "all "up or down buttons and watch them all move at the same time!
They are not cheap, but the quality is very visible in every component.
They offer a manual version as well as day shades if that is your preference.
