These are really great shades! You will love them. No idea who could install them for you. But.... they appear to be very easy to put in yourself. The hardest place would be installing the bracket in the center of the dash near the windshield. There's little room and you need an angle head drill and driver. The side windows have plastic guides that fit to the window frame. That looks easy-peasy. I'm sure the directions are going to tell you what to do.....

Two things: Sprinters have a flip top box above the console. With the install of the shades, there's no longer a lid. Only a small panel near the window where the bracket attaches. (Maybe that's removable???) You also will lose the inside mirror. There's no way to have a mirror and close the blinds..... W

I installed the Remis shades in my 2014 Unity MB. I took about an hour and a half being very careful. It was a little tricky placing the bottom center bracket on top of the dash. The center bracket needs to be placed so that the shades will come to the center smoothly and not cause the left and right sections to want to pull apart. Note that the rear view mirror on my unit was not surrounded with any sensing units that I saw on a friend's Airstream class B, for example. This will not allow the shades to come together and close around the mirror mount. And after my windshield was replaced along with a new rear view mirror, I simply slide it off of the mount and the shades come together in the center quite easily. And since we have a rear window, I do find the mirror useful to help with a better view of what's going on behind me.

I would check to see if Remis has a modified windshield shade that will work with the larger mirror mounts.

Redwing - I installed a set on my 2016 24MB. Took about 2-1/2 hours. The instructions are very poor, look at the install video on the website. layout all the parts and think your way through the install before you do it. The mirror must be removed on the LTV 2016 chassis. center the upper support and secure it and leave the lower support loose until the shades are installed, then center it and screw it down. Our units, Left Window, Right Window and Windshield came from the Winnebago outdoor store. You can order them from Amazon and they will be filled by Winnebago. They have been in short supply. Al

Al, can you list the Remis part number you used? Their data sheet suggests that 10058221 is the correct part for compatibility with the lane-keeping assist camera.

Thanks!

Ablock, I believe that the part number is Remis 10021161, I no longer have the origional packaging, the parts had a Winnebago part number on the box, Same item is listed on Amazon. Sorry I don't have more information. The top rail rod clears the rain/lane sensor housing, so the blinds close properly. The two center rod supports are different lengths, Install the shorter support on the upper rod. The instructions do not call this out. We will be in Petaluma the last week of the month, you can look at our installation if you wish. Send me a PM. Al

Thanks, Al. Hm...seems they no longer list that part number as an option for the front shade:



I've emailed them to see what's what.

Okay, here is the response I got from Hengs Industries, the distributor that Remi pointed me to. I had enquired about the proper part numbers for a 2016 Sprinter Chassis with lane-keeping assist, etc.:

Quote:
-Front Windshield Blackout Screen w/ Lane Assist
10060405 - $323.55 Each

-Driver Side Window Blackout Screen
10021162 - $158.50 Each

-Passenger Side Window Blackout Screen
10021163 - $158.50 Each
Hengs is a distributor, but I confirmed those are the retail prices.

If interested, Reed Qualls (rqualls@hengsind.us) is the contact. I have no affiliation, etc.
