Has anyone installed shades from Home Depot or Lowes?

We want to add shade or blinds to our 1997 Safari. Any ideas or experience greatly appreciated!

Look at these

I put the uncorded 1/2 in aluminum mini blinds in my Sovereign....they looked great and worked perfectly. They come in a variety of colors too.Aluminum Blinds - Aluminum Mini Blinds - Mini Blinds - Micro Blinds

We did and it was quite simple. I bought the cheapies at Lowe's and had them cut to fit. They then just snapped it place. Will they last forever, no! In our heat (Tucson) I give them a couple of years but for now they are serviceable. If you want real room darkening, I'd go with a better grade. You can see them here.

We got 2" wood like blinds from Home Depot. Was told real wood wouldn't do as well with the temperature extremes in a trailer. Were a little pricey, but I like them.
