Default Window Coverings

The slider window covering of a two piece heavy cloth drape type covering (slides on track using plastic clips) on my 2010 Four Winds Dodge branded sprinter needs to be replaced. Has anyone found a solution that blacks out the window when needed, doesn't obstruct the window when not in use, and does not have to be removed and stored -- but also doesn't get caught or hang out of the door when opening or closing the slider?

Can you take a picture of what it looks like?

We have this on our sliding door window. It was there when we bought it, so no idea where it came from. If you can find the plastic sliders, the curtain is easy for someone who sews to make.

We have double layer pleated horizontal blinds on the other windows, but I expect those are more expensive. They are thicker with the mechanism at the top covered by the valences. Maybe that is why they aren't on the sliding door.

Thanks, Mark, for your pictures and the assistance. Our side windows are set up similarly to yours. Your example for the slider would seem to work better for us than the loosely hanging, drape-like curtains that we have now. Safe travels!

These are great, not sure if it fits your window though.

Thanks. The fold-up option looks like it will work for us. I'll look into them; my googling hadn't picked them up!
