Easy to Measure...

Measuring and installation is a breeze with our help and advice. The first step in creating beautiful custom window treatments is recording accurate measurements.

How to measure RV Pleated Shades, RV Cellular Shades & RV Roman Shades

Please use these helpful guidelines to help ensure your window shades or blinds are a perfect fit. Measure width first, then length to nearest 1/8". Measure width from left to right and length from top to bottom. Measure carefully: shades are custom items and are not returnable.

Inside mount shades and blinds are installed inside the window casing.

  • Measure the exact inside width of the window casing from left to right inside edge.
  • Measure the exact inside length of the window casing from top to bottom inside edge.
  • Do NOT take any deductions. Allowances are made at the factory to ensure fit.


Outside mount shades and blinds are installed outside the window casing. The shade or blind will cover an area larger than the window itself.

  • Measure the exact width to be covered. Allow enough extra coverage to ensure proper light control and privacy.
  • Measure the exact length to be covered. Again, allow for proper coverage.
  • Factory will 1/2" to ensure proper coverage.


Shades should be kept in the closed or up position when not in use, to maintain pleat retention and minimize dirt and soil build-up. Do not store shades in the down position. This may cause some loss of pleat retention if the shades are not operated on a consistent basis.

Shades can be easily cared for by simply dusting or using a vacuum cleaner attachment. Do not use spot remover, household cleaners or detergents to remove soiled spots, as these may cause damage to fabric or loss of color from fading.

NOTE: If your recreational vehicle must be stored for an extended period of time, store shades in the up position and insert temporary material inside window frame (cutout cardboard).

Inside Mount Measuring

How to measure RV Roller Shades


  • Determine if the shade will be mounted inside the window opening (inside mount) or outside the window opening (outside mount). Refer to illustrations at right.



  • Record your measurements by listing the width measurement (side to side) first, then the length measurement (top to bottom). For example, a 24" wide by 36" long shade should be written like this: 24" x 36".
  • Recording your measurements correctly is a critical component in the ordering process. If the measurements are not in the correct sequence, the shade will not be built correctly.


If you decide on inside mount shades:

  • Measure the width dimension first (A).
  • Measure the length dimension next (B).
  • Measure again and record both dimesions: Width x Length.


If you decide on outside mount shades:

  • Measure the width dimension first (C).
    NOTE: Add 1-1/2" to your width dimension to allow mounting brackets to clear the window frame and give enough fabric width to cover the opening. C + 1-1/2"=___
  • Measure the length dimension next (D).
    NOTE: If the shade is going to sit above the window, be sure to measure starting where your shade will set above the window.


RV Roller Shade Measuring


  • Record both dimensions, width first then length. Measure again to confirm: Width x Length

    NOTE: On Slow Up (manual) roller shades, the fabric width is 1-1/4" less than the overall bracket-to-bracket width due to tension/position devices. on motorized roller shades, the fabric width is 1" less than the overall bracket- to-bracket width due to the motor control.
