    hi. I'm thinking of retrofitting these to my rollerteam motorhome. Seems they are about £500 for the front and sides. Anyone fitted them and are they easy?

    Would you fit them at £500?
    I saw someone mention they got some cheaper but can't find it now
    Anyone know a cheaper place to buy them from?

    I've fitted a few to Fiat/Peugeot/Citroen vans. Would I pay £500 to fit them to mine? Not a chance, I prefer a £100-£150 for an external silver screen/Taylormade cover.

    Most of the year you don't need silver screens and the blinds are far more convenient and much quicker. I paid £475 and worth every penny IMHO

    I have external thermal covers and stick on internal ones too. As Techno says these seem much better and more convenient for summer use. Especially on aires etc.
    Do you loose much visual area on the windscreen ?
    Shame they aren't cheaper but I guess I'll be keeping van for a while

    Remis blinds for summer; Silver Screen for winter. What could be easier? Mind you, the Remis blinds were on my van when I bought it and I would not have thought of fitting them. They do buzz and rattle a bit and need supplementary fastening with strip velcro to make them almost quiet.

    fitting is as easy as pie i bought them for our van and delayed putting them on till the very last worrying about messing up an almost 500 pound item. When I finally tackled the job it was less than two hours work deciphering the instructions took the longest and a bit heart stopping as you have to break the old pillar covers to get them out. This is on a ducato but cant see it being much different on a transit if you get a chance to inspect some that are already fitted it would probably help and grab some pictures if you can

    No you don't lose any vision at all with the latest type. Not sure I posted the blinds here? but I've never illustrated fitting them. I may have posted about updating my side blinds from the old fan style.
    Re above I don't have any rattles, the MKII type can if not fitted correctly.

    would i fit them again probably yes as a self build they add a bit of finish rather than having curtains. silver screens need to be stored when not in use and the blinds are quicker to pull when you want to change in the van during the day
    they dont replace silver screens in the winter as their insulating properties are not great

    The type that has the side window split in two do rattle as the fixings for the rods work loose. Easily fixed after removal. The latest single side blind has no guide rods at all thus eliminating rattle.

    Not sure you can get them yet for the new Transit? I was told that Chausson weren't fitting them as standard to Fords as they weren't available.

    It's not the brand new transit. It's the one before. Mk7 is it I'm rubbish at vans ? Last of the 2014 old type transits I think

    I retro fitted IV on my 2008 as they are better than III
    Mine is Ducato but the same improvements apply
