We measured the width and purchased a new roller shade from JC Penney.

When the shade arrived I found the ends were a bit different so I removed the new shade material from the roller and used clear, 2" wide packing tape to attach the shade to the old roller.

Clear as mud right? Basically I put the new shade on the old roller. You may not need to do that if your new roller ends fit.

On a related note, I had to remove several rivets on the interior of the door skin, around the perimeter of the window opening in order to access the old roller shade.

We have tried several different things to cover that window in our 87 25' Sovereign. I found some window film on line that looks like a blue sky with white puffy clouds. It looks really nice on a rainy day, at night with the door light on it looks like moon lit sky. It does prevent people from looking in.
