I haven't tried and in fact didn't know they changed for 2016 until your post.
I went out to my coach and after killing about 4 wasps, I looked at the valance for the pleated shades and I believe it would be an easy to moderate upgrade effort. It would depend on what is found inside after the bottom board of the valance is removed and whether or not someone would want to motorize the shades.
I definitely like the fact that the MCD style shades could be used as side window sun visors when travelling North or South.

I agree the accordion shades aren't the greatest. I don't like the way they away bunch up when closing and don't fold properly without alot of work. With this said, I was pondering replacing mine with a matching cloth and still use the slide rails. I have replaced they crappy rollers that the blinds used. It did make an improvement. I'll be watching this thread, I interested in what people say. Best of luck.
Our 15 Challenger 37KY has accordion shades on the Passenger and Driver side. We donít really like them and was wondering if any has or if you can replace them with MCD like shades that the 2016 have?
We bought the new 2015 37TB last year and I can't stand those shades. I noticed that before driving off the dealer lot and had/have plans of replacing them soon. However, setting everything else and a large trip next week to Disney for the grandkids have kind of pushed it aside. If nothing else, I have a good upholstery guy who could come up with something better. In fact, my grandkids could come up with something better I think.
