Alternative to blinds

On a previous rv we had the pleated shades but I prefer the MCD shades to the pleated shades.

I have the MCD shades in the cockpit and we love them but I've read good reports on the Automotion Shades also.

Curious why you ask. We love the MCD Duos in the coach and the cab is next. Do you know something I don't about them? Since we live near them - we had them installed there. They did a great job, everyone was extremely nice, professional and the product is great quality. If it's cost - they appear worth every penny to us. The accordion shades drove Annie nuts. Me too really. No more strings and push and pull matches with the shades. Also the day shade is awesome for UV protection and privacy.

I am looking for a day/night roller shade and wondering if there is an alternative to MCD. No problem with MCD but in a market as large and diverse as this there must be alternatives.

There are alternatives, check the back of an FMCA or Good Sams magazine. HOWEVER, we have had some of the alternatives and we think the MCD are far superior to most, if not all of the others out there. Just our experience and opinion.
