    Has anyone suffered with the large front roof blind sagging in the middle on a Rapido low profile Motorhome.
    The way I've over come the problem is by inserting round white plastic pipe from side to side. Not ideal, however does the job.
    Would be interested if others have found an solution?

    Our last Rapido did just that, I guess they did not heat treat the blind sufficienltly in the first place

    If left closed for days on end yes they will sag. Best to only close it when blocking out the Sun is desirable.
    I replaced my 2008 era in 2013 and it seems to be a bit more rigid
