Blackout shades

Blackout shades are specifically designed to block out all light, ensuring complete darkness when needed. Ideal for enhancing privacy in RVs, especially during nighttime stops, they can also help regulate the interior temperature by blocking external heat or cold.

Benefits of Using RV Blinds and Shades

  • Maintaining Temperature: RV shades can provide insulation, helping to regulate the interior temperature by trapping air and reducing heat transfer.
  • Controlling Light Exposure: Camper blinds and shades offer adjustable light levels, allowing RV owners to control the amount of natural light entering and block unwanted glare.
  • Privacy: Enjoy enhanced privacy within the confined space of an RV, especially when parked in crowded areas.
  • Aesthetics: Available in a variety of colors and materials, RV owners can customize the window treatments to match the overall theme of the RV.

Common RV Window Treatment Materials

  • Aluminum: lightweight and durable, aluminum resists wear and tear, making it suitable for the on-the-go lifestyle.
  • Honeycomb: cellular shades have a unique design that creates air pockets, providing unparalleled insulation and helping regulate temperatures inside the RV.
  • Fabric: light-filtering fabrics balance privacy and natural light, allowing a soft glow while maintaining seclusion.

RV Blinds & Shades Upgrades

Extensive road travel can be tough, but upgrading RV blinds and camper shades with motorized or cordless options adds a layer of convenience and safety to the overall functionality.

Motorized Options

Motorized shades enable easy operation with the push of a button, making adjustments hassle-free and allowing for precise control. This is especially helpful for hard-to-reach windows in the camper van or RV.

Cordless Options

It’s already a tight squeeze in the RV, and a tangle of cords can be dangerous. Cordless blinds eliminate the risk of entanglement, making them a safer option for families with children or pets. 

Tips for Maintaining and Cleaning Your RV Blinds

RV should be fun! Save time on maintenance by following these simple steps:

  • Regular Cleaning: To prevent buildup of dust and debris, use a soft duster or microfiber cloth to regularly dust the blinds
  • Dealing with Stains: Address specific stains or spots by using a mild detergent or a mixture of water and vinegar. Dampen a soft cloth and carefully wipe the affected areas.
  • Preventing Damage: Make sure your window treatments are completely dry before closing or raising them to prevent water spots or damage.
