When I got my Airstream the vista view blinds were pretty knackered so we decided to remove them. The only problem is I don’t know quite what to do with the unsightly rectangular hole in the wall.
We thought of trying to make an aluminium frame for it but because the original hole was square the new frame will have to be really fat and I think it may look a bit odd.
Has anybody else come up with any solutions?
Thank you in advance,
You can use two thicknesses of the ceiling vent cover gasket between the inner and outer shell.
If carefully done, it would look good, be permanent, and not cost much for the materials.
You could also add a curtain type shade to cover the hole to block out sun light.
You can still use the "U" shaped vinly molding for the inside shell, as Airstream originally did.
I will look into perhaps designing something else, after I return to the office, as many of those original plastic shades, unfortunately, are doing a Patsy Cline (falling to pieces).
