If anybody is contemplating installing MCD shades in a class A, I will be happy to tell you of my experience with their products. Had mine installed by very pleasant people at their plant in Texas. cegood2@gmail.com

Installed MCD shades myself and am very pleased with the product.

We have them in our unit and love them, you can feel a big difference in the heat transfer from sun light when you put the solar shade down.

I replaced three of our large window accordion shades with MCD. Fit nicely in the valance and look great. Much nicer to operate too. Love 'em.

I like that you only need to give them a little tug and let them go. They smoothly and slowly retract. Great product. My front one is motorized and makes a great sunshade.

It's all been said. We recently purchased a new motorhome with the MCD shades and absolutely love them. I particularly like the sun shade, like a heavy screen. Operate much better than the old day-night pleated blinds.

I replaced all my shades with MCDs a few years ago, and I'd never install them again. The electric shades may be good but the manual ones are overpriced and I'm constantly having to adjust them.

No thanks.
