Are the MCD shades a standard on the 2013's or an option? Where can I find a list of all options available? Is there a price listing available?

Any dealer should have this information

The dealer I have talked to doesn't even know you can get disk brakes or a 2nd awning.

Not sure what MDC shades are. We ordered a 2013 and were told that the 2 shades (regular roller shades like at home -- not the ones with the cords they used to use in rv's) -- one for day and one for night -- are standard. As for dealers knowing -- forget it. I've only found one who either knows the answers or will admit he doesn't know, check with RW and get back to me (promptly, to boot!) and that's Tony Burgess at Lazydays in Tampa. Before I found Tony, I was emailing back and forth with Andy Wesdorf at RW with all my questions (lots of them) He was always helpful and quick to respond (Sorry, Andy -- guess you'll soon be getting questions from others in place of me!). As for available options -- I don't know of any list. They're certainly NOT all on the spec sheet the dealer fills out when you place an order. We just looked at a lot of RW's, read the forum and ASKED. We specified that we wanted the paisley fabric rather than the "tweed" on our dining chairs (saw some on line both ways). Added an ottoman like the one(s) in the FL, added an "end" table between the recliners, and I'm about to ask that the hanging rod in the bedroom be moves further from the doors so we can easily use regular hangers. All the models we've looked at have the rod only 8 or 9 inches from the inside of the closet doors, so even though the closet is 20 or 24 inches deep (more or less), hangers will be diagonal, not perpendicular to the doors and the back wall of the closet like they are at home.

We ordered the MCDshades on our 2012 36RL and just love them! A definite improvement from the old fashioned string shades. Just a tip... they must be mounted to where the shade comes off the roll on the window side instead of the room side. The night shadewill hug the window and provide that privacy they're designed to give you.

My 2013 36RL came with the roller shades. I have 2 shades that I am having trouble with, but I admit I love how dark the coach is during the day with all the night shades pulled. The dealer is ordering new shades to replace the two I am having trouble with.

I purchased a 31sl in January and it was equipped with the new shades. My wife and I are not sure we really like them. We envision them all curling on the edges after some use, but they do look nice. The second night in the fifth wheel, we had a shade just fall off the metal rod. I found it on the bedroom dresser with about an inch of really sticky adhesive across the top of the shade. It appears that these shades are glued to the rods. It was a warm day when this happened but no where near as hot as it will be in the summer. I called Redwood and they said they have not noticed a problem such as this. They sent me a new shade immediately. Has anyone else had this problem?

Not sure what these new shades look like. We have the cloth roman shades that either filter the light or block it all together. Can't imagine I would like a different type. Ofcourse, if my wife liked a different one, so would I. I'm smart like that.

The MCD shades are the two separate shades. One completely blocks light and the other filters out light. They retract slowly after a gentle tug. In our opinion they are a great improvement over the day/night shades.
