    I'm sat facing a quite nice (wife says so) Notin Chicago A class on merc chassis.
    It has these external blinds that I've never seen before.
    I wonder if they're retro fittable

    They look like the lockable roller shutters you see on many properties in Europe.

    By all accounts Notin have fitted them since 2006.Additionally the part you are looking at is actually the the outer part of the window & when you open it the shutter part hinges outward from the top. They can also be opened with the shutter part up ,down or in any position.That was how they used to work.

    Ive seen a few Notin's fitted with these.

    I think it looks a good idea for sun/security

    They are on some older models, but I have wondered how reliable they are? how do they cope with dust which could be blown in to the rear sections at 70mph when you are travelling.

    Also the one Notin I managed to have a look in was 'very french' in design as I recall.

    I've also seen them on Notin motorhomes, strange you only see them on them.

    We too have seen several Notins with these blinds fitted and we both made the comment that from a security point of view they looked a very good idea. However we have never seen a van with them open so have no idea of practicality.
