Replacement blinds

We have a 2019 Laredo with the large rear window. The blind over that window is a pain to raise and lower even after adjusting it. The smaller blinds throughout the camper are fine but the size of this one makes it a pain. Anyone know of a replacement aftermarket blind to replace this? Thanks in advance

We have a huge window in our main slide. It's also a pain sliding both the lighter blinds and the heavier blinds up and down. I have decided that when it finally breaks, I'm thinking about installing a powered blind. Has the ability to modify the amount of light by powered slats and also powered raising-lowering. I've been looking at those at home depot, but I'm guessing lowes or others carries something similar. Not cheap... but might be worth the money for ease of use.


Unfortunately that would mean only working on 120vac, however... might be worth a small inverter of it's own... ~100 watt or so.

Just a thought.

Look at Irvine Shade Co. at the roller day/night shades found in a lot of higher end RVs. Had them in our Redwood & are 200% better than any pleated blinds & no power required.
