CloZures RV Door Window Shade kit

The latest Trailer Life has an article about a entry door window kit with two layers of glass and a internal shade that operates with a handle. Has anyone installed anything like this? If so, can you give me a short review on the experience and what product it was? Or better yet, go to the rally and show me the results? Thanks.

CloZures RV Door Window Shade kit

I was looking at this same product a few days ago after the frosted lining peeled off our glass. Their website states the shades are made for a 22” x 12” window. Our dimensions are smaller. I plan to contact them next week to see if they can make the shades for our door.

Wow. They just don't make things like they used to. I imagine it's a regular headache at Escape dealing with vendors with quality problems.

I like the idea, just haven't seen it. Perhaps one of those "several" can post a photo?

Reace told me that the doors arrive with a clear tinted glass, and ETI installs the frosted film. I cleaned off the residue with Awesome Cleaner from The Dollar Store.

I kinda like the ability to look out the door. That’s why I was looking into these sliding shades.

We shall see...

Interesting concept, but looking at it, it does not appear to be that great of a quality item. Your turn to go first, Fred.

While not a bad replacement option, and something that might look nice from the inside, I am not sure I would care to look at it from the outside.

The laminated vinyl sheet that produces the obscure effect of the entry window is peeling on our trailer, and my brother's 19 too. I have considered replacing it, but have not really researched options yet. I don't care that it has the option to be clear so we can see through, as we would never look out the window there very much anyway. Folks coming to the trailer can easily be seen through the kitchen window.

Interested though to see how other solutions pan out as opposed to just replacing the vinyl laminate.

Our window is currently just fine. But hubby likes the idea of a blind for the window that we can open and close.

I have seen Casitas with this decor, be it a film or an actual glass replacement, and they look very nice.

Myself, I prefer the simple clean look.

Hi Mary...
I would have been perfectly fine with our window too, had it not started to peel off. But then, I would not have discovered the blinds. :-)
