Changing the roll-up shade in the door of a 1987 Excella to a mini-blind

Has anyone made this change?

Exactly what needs to be done to take off the inside panel of the entry door? Does it all have to be removed? A thread I found talked about 4 screws (but that was for a 1977 AS) - I have only rivets on the inside panel of the entry door.

If anyone has had issues with mini- or micro-blinds in the entry door - please elucidate.

roll-up blinds

Well you stirred my curiousity, so I went out to the trailer and opened the door and was hoping that the door was like the shades in the other windows, BUT NO!!! After all it is an A/S. The other shades are like the ones in the house with one bracket with a slotted hole and the other with a open slot. My door is like yours with a rivetted inner panel. I think I'll drown my sorrows now, barkeep, Jack on the rocks...
