Anyone mind showing a photo of what they use as blind or curtain on PVC ducato boxer relay sliding door?
We have nice blinds fitted in rear windows by local company but they can’t fit them to the slider. Also have Van Shore curtains on rear doors.
I have zero inspiration at the moment, so any pics would be so helpful as food for thought. Any AS Warwick owners got a piccy as well ? I’ve looked at loads of ads for PVC s but they almost all have the door open so you don’t see the window set up.

1.2m of 20mm chain sewn into hem at bottom to weigh curtain down. Thanks for the interest, nothing available at the same price, so l got the sewing machine out and had a go myself.

You can buy cassettes with a blind and fly screen in, just a question of finding one the correct size, try O‘Leary’s website.

Ours is exactly the same arrangement as all of the other windows. Rapido V68 - came as standard.

That looks swanky, min
Yes, guess I assumed all van conversions would come with similar.

There's a pull-down fly screen as well. ;) (y)

The panel does look good, mine is a conversion done originally for a disabled couple, it probably was a one off, so the door just has limo tint glass and some added padded panels, the window ‘cover’ is a sort of thin panel insert that does the job but oddly doesnt match the good quality of the rest of the van ( not as high as yours by the looks but it suits us with one long side bed as I am tall) and its a classic case of ‘spoiling a ship for a ha’porth of tar’.
We’ve upgraded the van with bits and pieces along the way and theres just a couple of little bits to finish off now to make it ‘ours’ if you know what I mean .
I’m just not very creative so getting the photos kicks starts the old grey matter thinking just got to watch costs after this year.... Thanks again..I’ll let you know how it goes
