Default Freebie - accordion blinds

Just replaced 5 of the 6 original factory accordion blinds in our 2307C - if anyone wants the ones I took out, they're yours for the cost of shipping.

All 5 are the original two-part blinds - translucent linen on the bottom, opaque opal on top with taupe rails. All 5 are 24" tall, 2 are 38" wide (front side windows), 1 is 50" wide (back / bathroom window), 2 are 62" wide (center / dinette & galley windows), all come with mounting clips, cords are in good condition on all.

The 38" and 50" wide units are in decent, usable shape as-is; the pleats in the fabric on the two 62" wide ones are breaking down - don't know if there's any way to correct for that.

Unfortunately, I forgot to take photos of the blinds before removing them - all five are collapsed and bundled with painter's tape and I don't want to open them back up......

The replacements came from J&R in Ohio - they have some original blinds in stock (new old stock, probably from when HiLo went under). They also apparently have a working relationship with the original vendor to HiLo and can get exact replacements in the original fabrics and colors through them.

Suspect that 4 of the 5 I ordered were NOS and one was a current replacement - 4 fit the original clips, but one long one had a top rail that was about 1/8 inch wider than the originals and needed new clips (which came with the blind).

Colors and fabric are exact duplicates to the originals.

Don't remember the exact cost (bought a bunch of small parts that were billed with the blinds), but think it was around $475-$500 for all five. Not cheap, but after 3 months of fruitless hunting for similar blinds that could be adapted, fit inside the original valances, and look right in the trailer, it was worth it.
