Couldn't you just go to Menards or Home Depot or Lowes and have them cut to the length you need?

Welcome to the forum nfd421,

Are you missing 'mini blinds', or 'day night shades'?

As suggested, mini blinds can usually be purchased at Home Improvement stores (& cut to fit, if needed). You can also order blinds and/or shades... here's a few ideas:

Ebay - used search words-> RV Day Night Shades or -> RV Shades
There are several colors/sizes currently available


Hope this helps!

im not sure what the differance is between day/night blinds and regular blinds and as for going to lowes or home depot these shades/blinds attach different then normal home blinds as there are clips that hold them from the top instread of the slide in brackets from the sides

We just replaced all the blinds in our 2009 Sprinter. Do you need the metal mini blinds or the soft blinds? If you need the mini blinds let me know what sizes you need and I will see if I have any that will work for you and we can work out a deal on them. You can pm me with the sizes if you want. :)

Hello, just bumping this thread because I am also in need of some travel trailer blinds. I was wondering if roman blinds are available for trailers, I know venetians and blackout blinds with suction cups exist. I wouldn't know if they attach with clips like nfd421 mentioned. This paragraph I found on the internet talks mostly about home blinds I'm thinking, right? : Within our range there is a colour or fabric texture to suit any dècor; a beautiful choice for any window making a definite impact. Made fully lined using the highest quality sateen and black out linings roman blind from our next day range is delivered to you mounted on an aluminium track with an automatic cord lock or choose the optional bead chain cassette operation.
I hope I don't sound like a rookie when it comes to blinds or cars. Thank you for your time and help!

If you go to the GENERAL FORUMS section, under Repairs and Maintenance, the first thread is a "sticky" titled Rv suppliers and rv parts sources

You can find it here: http://www.keystonerv.org/forums/showthread.php?t=12986

You should find several sources for the blinds you're looking for in that listing.

We replaced the metal mini blinds in the bunk windows with the same type of clothe shades that are on the slide windows. We went to the parts dept. @ the dealer to price them & they told us they had several in the back for $10 each. Apparently when folks buy new trailers & upgrade the shades, the service dept. re-sales the original shades for cheap. I'm sure not all dealers do this, but it's worth a shot.
