Can't address what kind of work to expect from Bradd & Hall, but I can tell you we love our MCD shades. We have them on all but the cockpit windows.
Given enough money, there is no such thing as it can't be done. Perhaps the salesman should have said they can't be easily
installed on every rig.
If you're talking about the windshield, the curve of the windshield and clearance issues with overhead cabinets (especially on older motorhomes with a CRT TV in front) sometimes makes it necessary to use 2 or even 3 screens across the front or to make major modifications to the front cabinets - not impossible, but expensive. That's the reason we didn't install the MCD shades in the cockpit of our motorhome.
For all the other windows, the major consideration is that there is a 3" clearance behind the valences. If clearance is a little less, a good installer should be able to put an inconspicuous spacer behind the valence to provide more clearance. If the space is a lot less than 3", it may be necessary to make new valences - not impossible, but also fairly expensive.
