On our previous TT our curtains were just attached with Velcro. you could sew the curtains and just put one piece of mVelcro on the underside of the wood valance and sewed one on the fabric. That is all that Jayco did for our curtains. They stayed very well.

I'll add another vote for velcro - it works quite well. We used the material from a set of pop-open auto sun shades cut to fit our windows and sewed some black backing material on them. A few small pieces of sticky velcro around the metal window frame holds them in place nicely.

Velcro is a great idea. Inexpensive and easy. You could use a hot glue gun to affix it to the frame or under the valance.

Buy yourself a sleep mask on eBay. Why take the time and effort of covering and uncovering the Windows every morning and evening.
We bought sleep masks for airline travel and visit to Estonian this summer ( never actually gets dark...like anchorage). They're comfortable, cheap, and effective.
Then when your not trying to sleep you and the DW can play Marco Polo...or some other fun game fir adults.

Just my two cents��

Silver Reflectic With Velcro

I think I like the idea of the Reflectix from the DIY store. I like the idea it will keep heat out and prevent fading of the interior.
Reflectix is so light but stiff that the frame and blinds should hold it in. If not, I will put a few velcro spots across the top of the window.

Thank you for all your ideas and experiences.
