    I cheated and had them fitted by my dealer, who is very experienced, he said they were very difficult to fit but still made a good job of it.
    Warning; these blinds are excellent but parts are hard to get and they are not strong, use them with care.

    I paid extra when I had my IH built I wish I had had a curtain like in the old one as the plastic creaks on mine and REALLY annoys you when the rest of the van is so quiet

    Mine were fitted when we bought the van (used) and have not noticed any noise at all from them. The radio is turned up high to cover the engine/road noise so possibly drowns out any noise from the blinds.
    As for spares,, one of the side locking clips for the front blind when open was missing when we purchased the van, sent an email to remis saying I could'nt source these and they sent me 2 in the post FOC but must admit, having taken down the front blinds twice now (to fit dash-cam and reversing mirror monitor) they do seem flimsy but are surprisingly robust.
    We have curtains and blinds but the curtains are rarely used.
    As an aside, before collecting the van I went out on a shopping spree and bought some internal silver screens,, now surplus as they do not fit very well because of the remis blinds.

    Thats the answer put the radio on as soon as we set off and he will never notice!!!!! we have external and internal silver blinds which came with the van never used the internal ones they are so big and take up loads of room

    Following with interest as we a thinking about having them fitted too. Currently use internal silver screen, but a pain to stick up and bulky to store.
    Would the Remis blinds alone be enough in cold weather?
    Been quoted 599 + vat for our MH company to fit them.
    Seen them to buy for 475 so wondering if best to do ourselves?

    @Milliemobile There is very little thermal value in Remis Blinds. You would find it much better to buy a set of external Silverscreens. No condensation on your screen even in the depths of winter.

    They are quick to put on and take off and fold up quite small they come in a bag and are easy to stow away in a locker or garage.

    Yes would probably go for that option, spend most if time away in mainland Europe, so hopefully won't need to worry too much, the Remis blinds seem so much easier to whip up, esp with the dogs like when we go into supermarket, so can trade off the lack of insulation.
    Once fitted I assume you can't remove to put on another van, without leaving visible damage?

    I am putting the remis blinds on for the summer, when it was very hot last year and had to put the external blinds on to cool the van down it was horrid so dark up the front and on off on off what a pain, and i hate the curtain going across it makes our cab seats unusable
