On our Sprite, there is a little picture on the window indicating that blinds should not be down when moving - I seem to recall a similar comment that it weakens the springs to have the blinds down when moving.
I think the spring thing is immaterial when towing really, they are usually closed for longer periods at night. However I believe the 'little picture ' that Paul B refers to is more to do with bright sunshine reflecting heat from the silver side of the blind and causing the window plastic to get very hot on one side. When parked up and blinds down the windows should be left on the latch to allow cooling air to flow. Granted you would need to drive in one direction for quite a while.

There may be snow on the roof and require a bit of re-thatching in places but there is still a fire burning in the hearth.
