I'm considering investing in a set of Remis Cab blinds for my x250 ducato, Are they as good as they look? I can't see any downsides, is there anything I need to consider? And who's seen them for a good price? Cheapest i've seen is £475 from Magnum motorhomes. A lot of money so I want to get it right

Pro - they're pretty useful - easy to open and close, and very effective light blockers as well as being reflective and helping keep van cool in sun.

Con - they need a bit of care when opening and closing, and don't like being bashed. Also, the frame on the windscreen one reduces the amount you can adjust the sun visor as it stops it folding out completely. Finally of course, you still need a Silver Screen or similar to stop condensation on windscreen in cold weather.

Overall, I think they are worth having.

Yes Magnums is the best price. £475 is value. Do not get the side blinds that are split in two! The later one piece is the best.

Beware! if you have Paragon Silverscreens they will need altering to fit over the addition of side blinds

They can rattle when on the move, so I've heard. Also, if you have secondary internal aftermarket door locks the blind casing may have to be cut to fit around them. If you habitually suction devices to the windscreen, such as a camera or satnav, they will have to be removed every time you close the blinds, which I imagine could cause some wear to the suction part over time.

I have them and they are good if expensive. I suction my devices to a panel on the dashboard. I used to hang a large fabric groundsheet from the sunvisors as a curtain many years ago. Quite adequate and easy to do. Cost £20. The world moves on and your wallet depletes.
