Welcome Flossy. I'm not sure what you mean about the blinds. Your 320 would originally have been supplied with a pull down fly screen, pull down blind, nets on a shock cord and decorative narrow curtains. All of these would have been factory fitted.

Thereís only one blind and thatís on the large window. Otherwise thereís just curtains. I think the previous owners were in the middle of fitting them when they decided to sell. So I have two blinds to go up on the two side windows. They are the type that go up for fly screen or down for blackout or come apart for open windows. Each blind is secured with 2 screws each end (so 8 in total 4 top 4 bottom.) 590F8F2F-9048-4CFF-9C1D-FB70FD4A06EF.jpeg - Bild entfernt (keine Rechte)Just wondering how to fit them. Thanks for replying, am new to caravanning so itís all a steep learning curve. Havenít ventured out yet.

The screws would be something like a 3/4"/20mm round headed chipboard screw (straight thread down the whole length of the screw, not a tapered wood screw).
The one you have fitted should indicate how the frame goes together. Have a practice assembling the frame on a table beforehand. Then it should be just a case of screwing the parts to the wall making sure the corners are square. I would think that there should be existing holes, unless the wall boards have been replaced or re-covered.

Thank, the screw info is just what I was after, there arenít any holes already, and judging by the way the existing blind is fixed (badly) I would say thatís an addition. Itís 1998 so not sure about what would have been standard. Thanks for your advice tho 👍🏼
