Challenger Side/Front Shade Replacement

Our 2014 came with the PITA stiff hard to use fold up shades on the driver's side and passenger side front windows. At a recent RV show we observed numerous new models, some not Thor products, that had regular pull down type shades for these windows.

Any Challenger owners out there replace these older stock fold up shades? I have looked online and really not found what I am looking for. It looks like CW has some you can special order different sizes, anyone try those?

I have been looking to replace the pleated shades with pull downs on the side windows. One of the problems I see is the space between the wall and the drop down bunk cable brackets. The shade would have to be shallow in depth to fit in the space.

Not a high priority right now but I am looking.

Yes, it would certainly have to be a design that is pretty narrow. In addition some class A's we looked at had them screwed into the ceiling area up in there. I'm not sure what would be above the pleated shade to screw into.
