I have Autoquest 180. The front curtains are bit mad, with the roller coaster rails to draw them. I have seen some pleated blinds on some vans. Anyone any experience?
Ours were already on the van when we bought it. I believe they are not cheap to install, but better than curtains. They work well, but the condensation was bad in the mornings in winter. We bought tailor-made screen and use all the time, summer or winter and whilst the van is on the drive. Blocks out the heat of the sun on sunny day, but has a drop down panel so can be opened whilst in situ. No condensation during the winter. I would save yourselves a fortune and get silver screen type product. We rarely use the blinds now, only if we happen to do an overnighter on a car park when using the screen isnt ideal.
We have the pleated blinds - factory fitted in the van - I think they are very good. We've never really felt a great need for silver screens (even in winter) when using them. Condensation not bad at all - but that may because we sleep in the rear lounge quite a bit away from the cab. However I do think they are pretty expensive to retrofit.
What about something like this?
