    Has anyone suffered with the large front roof blind sagging in the middle on a Rapido low profile Motorhome.
    The way I've over come the problem is by inserting round white plastic pipe from side to side. Not ideal, however does the job.
    Would be interested if others have found an solution?

    If left closed for days on end yes they will sag. Best to only close it when blocking out the Sun is desirable.
    I replaced my 2008 era in 2013 and it seems to be a bit more rigid

    Just found this post, the above cab skylight blind as got a broken string, so needs replacing, the blind is Horrex, i was wondering if any one could tell me how you measure them for replacement ie. internally or externally? Motorhome is Rapido 7065 2014 I believe @Techno replaced one that was sagging?
