Blinds - NRF & Remiflair Habitation Blinds plus Remifront & Seitz Cab Blinds.
Aftermarket / DIY blinds come in various standard sizes only as below, specific replacement sizes will only come from the vehicle converter as a spare part or just possibly a workshop customising one of these.
NRF Blinds: Top-down or Bottom-up habitation Blinds & Fly-screens: NRF Combination Roller Blinds & Fly-screens are four sided light grey assemblies in standard sizes. The plain reflective blind locks to the flyscreen and both can be positioned anywhere in the track. This is incredibly versatile allowing complete blackout or partial light but still with some privacy. All this while maintaining a good resistance to insect ingress too. (always a slight vulnerability with separate blind & fly-screen tracks). The assembly can be fitted either way up so the blind can operate top-down or bottom-up to suit your preference. As fitted OEM in many European Motorhomes. These blind sets are sized differently to our other blinds - the nominal width size is the window cut so a 500x650 blind is actually about 596x736mm overall and a rubber seal of 15mm each side is assumed. The top and bottom pieces are 43 wide so you need that much free flat surface to attach to. The side rails and depth are about 34mm so really quite slim. Some sizes may be supplied with two handles rather than one as illustrated here. New; these blinds now come with all parts unassembled - for user assembly - and so can be shortened (but not reduced in width). Other blinds as below. Please note most are landscape format.

RemiFlair Window blinds: Combined night roller blind, sunscreen and flyscreen in a slim line cassette. The aluminium coating gives blackout, privacy and heat reflection all in one quality unit. Suitable for caravans and motorhomes. The dimensions given are the nominal external dimensions. Easy installation. To just cover the window plus surround, the Remiflair must be a minimum of 30mm wider overall, see below. In general allow some extra clearance at sides and top by choosing a size slightly larger than the window size. To adjust the drop simply cut the side tracks to length and re-insert the end caps. It's best to allow the blind to drop slightly lower than the window so allow maybe 100-120mm extra drop including the top frame. Do think about the stop positions, it may be best to shorten the sides from the top! Normally ex-stock. Download PDF instructions here (300Kb in new window) or right-click and 'Save target'. Please note almost all are landscape format.
RemiFlair pleated /caravan blinds? We do not sell those. We do sell RemiFront pleated cab blinds below
Remiflair Sizing: The nominal size of the blind is based on its outside dimensions. The side arms are rebated at the back so that you can fit the blind partially overlapping the window surround if desired. The sides are about 35mm wide and the rebate is about 5mm deep by 20mm wide so the effective internal width of the blind is reduced by 30mm when fitted like this. If not using the rebate for a tight fit the internal clearance (free width) between the side frames is about 75mm less than the nominal width. See the picture for a nominal 1400mm blind example. The issues top to bottom are different, first the header height is 70mm with the blind leading edges protruding about 20mm so there is some fitting leeway there. The blind 'catch' positions in the sides are every 150mm starting from near the bottom. It is best therefore to shorten the sides from the top but it is possible to cut/file additional catches with a little skill if required. Allow a little overlap at the bottom for best effect. When reducing the width, do so at one end only, this allows you to avoid the spring-loaded mechanism at the other end. And also for running repairs the Remis Take-n-trim: Pictured left. 3 sizes. Cream-white/Silvered blackout blind only on a roller for DIY blinds and DIY Repairs, includes brackets and fixings to enable independent hanging - but no help available with this! Buy Below >>>

Our View - Easy DIY: Now for Sprinter, Transit, & Renault/Vauxhall Master too. These excellent concertina blinds fit all Ducato/Boxer cabs from 1994 on and are available either as a complete DIY set or as separate components, front & sides. You will see them already appearing as original equipment but they are also very easy to retro-fit to existing vehicles, as per the Caravan Club Practical article in their November 03 magazine but at our lower discount prices of course. We've fitted them to our own Hymer coachbuilt - it took me only just over the hour and they're excellent in use! Not only are they very convenient but also serve to release that extra cab space in a coachbuilt while at the same time concealing cab area from prying eyes - and even better you don't have to get out of the 'van in the pouring rain to put them up! Do note that the Ducato version is universal but the others are 'handed' - you must specify LHD or RHD. Also Ducato / Boxer / Jumper blinds are now side to side opening like the ones for Sprinter and Master. Although slightly more difficult to install these are much more convenient in use. One great tip is to make sure you have a universal or right-angled screwdriver adaptor for the two awkward centre dashboard screws. NB: Rarely there can be fitting issues if the converter has added trim or furniture obstructing the windscreen surround. Some Boxer-Relay had an upper moulding / parcel shelf that fouled the top fitting and this has to be pared away. Autocruise have fitted to these vehicles as OE and simply trim the moulding to suit, looking at Autocruise OE fit is a good way to see how to do it. We're told the parcel shelf version is no longer fitted to new Boxer, Ducato trim is different and doesn't have this problem. Buy Now >>
Just as a point of reference and for identification the newer 2007-on X250 Ducato is pictured left, Boxer is similar but with a different grill. The latest face-lift version (revised bonnet line & headlamps) from late 2014 is often referred to as the X290.
There is a warning in the Remis instructions about use with certain types of airbags ... (literal translation) "Important note! This information first carefully read. For vehicles with Airbags in the A-columns or above the doors, this system is not suitable!". We're not currently aware of any such airbags fitted to motorhomes.
Some older Instructions in English: all presented as PDF downloads in a new window:
Transit NB: The Remis instructions are the originals and may say 'cannot be fitted to rain sensor models'. But when available we do supply rain sensor versions and feedback from customers fitting these says (re the instructions only) "the only alteration appears to be the position of the screen centre supports".
