Roller Shades in CCD

hola,
i have a 2006 Bambi, 19' CCD. It has those plastic roller shades. i've always thought they were somewhat out of place in terms of design with the rest of the interior.
While in Tucson having a window replaced at the AirStream dealer, i noticed that the new CCDs have a roller shade now enclosed in an aluminum tube that uses a grey fabric...much better. These are made by a company with a first name i can't remember, but the last part was ....Stream. (not Air)
Does anyone know the name? or AS part(s) #.
thanks.

I saw those weekend after last at an Airstream dealership in several trailers - - CCDs, Safaris and even Limiteds. I think the brand was Ocean View. Thinking about replacing my miniblinds with them.

Just be aware that these shades don't have a stop built into them. You can either lower them or raise them. There is no mechanism for them to stop half way down, for example.

Re: Ocean Air shades

This is the brand shade in my '08 Int'l. Work just fine but as noted they are either up or down....no in between.

Actually the brand is OceanAir (so it was the "air" part not the "stream" part that you remembered).

I think I remember reading that they were originally for marine applications, but we have them in our 08 23' Int'l CCD and I like them a lot. There are little clips at the bottom that hold them in the closed position -- like others said, no in-between, but it doesn't bother me.

Specifically, they appear to be very similar to these: http://www.oceanair-marine.com/en/i/sd/sdr_en_i.php

Hook the shade ends under the window height handles and it will hold the shade at about the half way position. It works!

It does indeed -- no idea why I didn't think of that.

I refitted our 78 Ambassador with these OceanAir shades (six of em')....they do a good job and give us privacy at night, and roll up and are completely out of the way during the day...

They are really easy to install, and come with the lower mounting hardware...the wider ones use two hold downs that mount at the outer ends...

OceanAir doesn't sell direct, but mfg's these shades to Airstream's specs...I found a couple of Marine Accessory dealers that handle these shades, but not in the proper sizes for our trailers...

I measured all my windows - length and width - and contacted an airstream dealer for a list of the closest fitting shades...then ordered from there...

As it worked out, Airstream had all the sizes I needed...one thing however...they are VERY expensive - get a quote before ordering...request they pack these expensive shades with extra care to avoid damage in transit - I speak from experience

I looked up my records and found the following part numbers and measurements that were sent to me from The Mother Ship's parts dept, a year ago:

#703700-07 17.75" x 34"
#703700-04 29.75" x 34"
#703700-01 19" x 24"
#703700-05 19" x 34"
#703700-03 25.25" x 34"
#703700-06 42.75" x 34"

The first dimension is the WIDTH and the 2nd is the pull down LENGTH.

You can call your favorite AS dealer to get a quote - they will most likely then have them 'drop shipped' to you directly from Jackson Center...

I'd ask for any 'deal' they might be willing to offer, as AS might be overstocked these days and want to move em' out of inventory...just a thought...

Bumping this thread because I've had it cleaning the venetian blinds.

Ocean Air Marine Blinds

Ye gods they're expensive, but they look cool! Made in the UK, sells only to dealers, trying to find a good USA dealer.

How expensive are we talking here? Is it, "wow, that's expensive", or is it "YIKES, are you kidding me" expensive??????????

Does anybody have pictures of these roller shades? or a good link to pictures? I'm interested because we're not completely thrilled with the privacy provided by the standard mini-blinds and have been looking for a better alternative.

Key criteria would be full coverage for better privacy followed by easier to use.

Thanks!

I'm interested in the same information... ballpark prices. I have 8 shades on my 1990 25' Excella to replace, and want an updated look. But, since I'll also be removing some vinyl wallpaper and making new drapes as well, and maybe some different flooring and painting endcaps (inside molded plastic), I want to keep this within some semblance of reason.

West Marine sells Oceanair blinds in the 80 to 120 per blind price range. I'm not sure how that compares with Airstream pricing but I would imagine similar.

Many window and blind companies carry roller shades with fabrics in any color and a variety of openness ratings. They can also be motorized. They can be ordered to any size as well.
