Blinds

I wanted to take off the aluminum blinds and replace with cellular blinds becuase the aluminum can bend and don't give as much privacy..What would you guys use to fasten the cellular blinds brackets to the wall

The factory typically uses #2 Roberts screws either 1.25 or 1.5" long. Remember your RV walls are 2" thick and some slide walls are less than that, so, driving 1 3/4" screws through a slide wall and over-torqueing "just a tad" can crush the sidewall member enough to crack the FILON skin on the slide.... So, whatever you decide to use, be careful to not penetrate the outer surface of your RV.

Not sure on yours, but my trailer only has the aluminum blinds in the kitchen, and I wouldn't replace them with fabric blinds as they are too near the stove.
