Captn- Wow, I'm a little surprised to hear that- I thought MCDs were something of a mid-level option. That's good to hear the opinion from somebody that's had the Irvin and compares them with the MCD.

Thanks for the input!

When the Irvine break and they will, their CS will send metal parts to replace the plastic at no charge. I had 3 under warranty and CW replaced the entire shade through Keystone. Just 5 more and replacement parts was easy. Part of the problem on longer shades was Keystone did not put all the support pieces supplied with the shade.

Captn- That's good customer service! It's too bad they don't use the metal parts from jump-street!

Builders get the cheapest bid. Irvine sells a ton at lowest cost to get the bid and then takes good care of the owner. Having had Irvine and MCD I prefer MCD day and night shades but they are pricey.

I don't have any experience with RecPro shades. However, I did change almost all of the pleated shades in our Raptor with MCD shades two years ago. The only ones that didn't get changed were the little windows beside the head of the bed - MCD doesn't make one small enough.

I found the measuring and on-line ordering process, combined with the followup telephone call from MCD staff, to work well. It was pretty simple...just follow the instructions. Upon arrival, I did the installation myself and it, too, was pretty simple if I just followed the instructions. We have been very happy with the MCD shades and have had no problems.

So....I can't give you a comparison between MCD and RecPro, but I can tell you that my experience with MCD has been very good.
