Window Shades

Anyone know the manufacturer for National RV drivers window shade. It is a manual one with scissors on the window side. You pull/push up on the bottom rail. Thanks in advance!

I think National used both Carefree of Colorado and Automotion.

I just bought two of these Automotion shades. They have one left. They are new (old stock) though one of mine came with some minor scratches on it. I put a single coat of low gloss automotive under-hood trim paint on it (such as SEM Trim Black or Mar-Hyde Black Satin) and it matched the factory finish perfectly.

Tip: Offer $60 and you'll likely be successful.

The original visors on my Dolphin were 24" and this is 27.5", so it wouldn't fit in the factory sun visor position due to the overhead TV being in the way. I fabricated a bracket to make it work, though if you're using it on a side window or under the TV, that won't be a concern.

On a now departed motorhome, we bought old-fashioned, spring loaded, window from JCP. The kind your grandparents had in their house in the 50's and 60's. Mounted easy and worked fine.

Thanks for that, but wo is all I needed. That remaining unit is a good buy for anyone who needs one. The first unit I got was flawless, and only the second one had a few minor scratches.
