Lippert Components debuts Thin Shade™ entry door shade kits

October 14, 2019

Elkhart, Ind. — Lippert Components, Inc. (LCI®) announces today that it has unveiled two new RV entry door accessory kits, the Thin Shade™ Ready Kit and the Thin Shade™ Complete Kit. The revolutionary Thin Shade™ is a pleated window shade that seamlessly integrates into the RV entry door window frame, providing instant shade, privacy, or sunlight. Both kits are now being offered in attractive retail packaging and are available through all of LCI’s aftermarket partners.

The Thin Shade Ready Kit was designed for simple installation into the 100,000-plus prepped LCI entry doors. The Thin Shade Ready Kit includes the attractive pleated shade, which can easily be attached to the LCI prepped window frames.

The Thin Shade Complete Kit includes all components necessary to upgrade a standard entry door window with the Thin Shade and is the first of its kind to offer an integrated blind into the entry door window frame. The Thin Shade Complete Kit includes everything needed to completely replace an entry door’s window: tinted glass window, black exterior and interior window frame, horizontal blind, and all necessary hardware.

First developed by LCI in 2018, the Thin Shade keeps the sun’s rays out of the RV living space, helping to regulate the interior temperature. The Thin Shade can also help create instant privacy by simply pulling down on the shade handle, and its sleek, integrated design means RVers won’t have to store it when not in use.

LCI will be offering both kits to dealers at the upcoming distributer shows and will offer a Profit Program for the Thin Shade products as a part of its Gold Circle Dealer™ Program. To learn more about Thin Shade products and the Lippert Components Gold Circle Dealer program, visit
