Paper Blinds?

I searched the forum but could find no information on this.
I have seen paper pleated blinds that attach to the top of the window or above the window with double sided tape, and can be cut to fit each window. There is no mechanism to raise or lower the blind, you do it manually and use a couple clips to keep it up at the desired height. They do not block all the light completely, but are completely opaque so they can't be seen through for privacy. They are very inexpensive.
Have you ever used these or seen them in an RV?
If so, what did you think about them?
Pros? Con's?
thank you!

Ikea $2.99 (Schottis). I bought one for the bathroom since I don't expect to raise and lower it. It filters the light coming in and gives complete privacy. You cut it to the width you want and you can trim the length as well so you don't have a huge bunch at the bottom (leave a little bit for weight).

Pros: Cheap, simple, attractive.
Cons: Probably not really durable, not easily adjustable.

One more thing to watch out for: The adhesive on the top isn't that great. Mine hit the floor yesterday. I guess I'm going to shoot some staples into them to make the installation more permanent.

Thanks for the information. I heard that some people are using better doublesided tape to keep them up. I hadn't thought about the condensation either. Will have to keep an eye on it.
We took down all the mini-blinds with the wood valances yesterday, so we will see how the paper blinds fit, etc. Will let you know how they do for us.
