    We are after the manufacture of the front shutter blind type used on some motorhomes.
    They are the ones which look like roller shutter or window shutters on houses.
    Know they are not..

    I only know of one manufacturer that uses them. All RMBs have them fitted as standard equipment. They are made from aluminium and are factory fitted as they roll up out of sight into the roof space. They serve two purposes, complete blackout and insulation. Am not sure how they can be retro fitted as they disappear into the roof space.

    Hi, we had similar on our Pilote Reference 622 but instead of roller shutter , it was more concertina material which slide in 2channels 1 each end of the windscreen in an up/down movement, similar to that on modern m/hs perhaps try one the main dealers for pilote . I believe Seitz make them http://www.motorcaravanning.co.uk/shopuk/seitz_blinds.htm

    Hi Chris & Brian
    I had a look at ours and there is no make that I can see----But I bet someone on N+B forum would know--
    Personally I think they are well worth the effort of fitting--ours is electric, but I reckon the manual one is OK--very easy to use
