We have a 2013 Model and are considering upgrading to a new model for 2021. However,  amongst the 'improvements' and  changes in the newer model I am baffled by the new Cab Blinds for the front window. The material appears very fragile and the patience and skill required to complete the 'blackout' might well be beyond me. Has anyone else experience of the 'newer'  versions and can they offer any advice/reassurance?

My understanding was that when the new Mercedes came out Hymer took out the rights to the new pattern Remis blinds for a period (not sure if it was one or two years) so it could be that the blinds you have are not the Remis type but an alternative make.

Yes, I also heard that Hymer required exclusivity but that this has now been resolved. I believe that the blinds I saw yesterday on a 2021 model were Remis.

We were told the same although the BS meter started winking 
And no there wasn’t going to be a retro fit either although a semi promise was made ( a definite  maybe) So apart from the rubbish Habitation door handle that fouls a drawer that needs a serious redesign, otherwise we quite like now when all the gremlins have been quietened down.

I had heard this as well. The solution of the silver screens provided as an interim solution didnt actually fit. Another set was tried with same result. I did some searching around and found RainbowScreens actually listed the latest (2019 onwards) Sprinter during the order process, and my dealer purchased a set.

Hi
    I am surprised your Silver Screens did not fit, I presume you are referring to outside screens, what problem did you have as I thought my old ones fitted! perhaps I need a 2nd look
Thanks
Alan

IMHO Remis blinds are the "invention of the devil". They hit my dashcam, they don't stay together in the centre, they stop the sun visor from swivelling to the side window and they RATTLE! 
Added to which, they seem to be made from second grade toilet paper, (perhaps I'll be able to sell them as such, when the idiots start emptying the supermarket shelves of loo rolls)
I'm just about to take them out of my Broadway, and replace them with genuine Silver Screens, (Trade Name). I know these fit properly as I have had many sets over the years.

Hi 

 I have a 2019 mercedes winchcombe  previously a 2017 burford with the remis  blinds fitted and I assumed that the same would come fitted to the 2019 winchcombe but no it came with external blinds which I was not happy about using so I bought a set of internal thermal blinds which I would recommend as they are tailor made and fit well with suckers for the 2019 sprinter and you get a choice of colours for the inner side (reversible due to the way the suckers fit)

 I thought that you might be interested in the company      QTMDirect2you thermal blinds

hope that other 2019 + sprinter owners may find this useful.

We found that the external Paragon Silverscreen from our previous Bourton (previous Mercedes model) fitted the latest model - cab dimensions obviously not changed much. We use the silverscreen in colder months for the insulation and Remis blinds in warmer months for instant privacy.

Speaking of Remis blinds - I'm aware that many, like us, were given a silver screen as an interim solution pending the availability of the blinds which we now have - see below. So, if you are still on a promise follow It up now!
