I didn't buy the covers that I linked to, I made my own by purchasing space blankets from I think it was EMS sports. I taped them together and held them on with clothes pins. The space blankets reflected the sun and therefore the heat during the day, and they drastically reduced the condensation and that wet feeling at the bottom of the bunk. Finally, they blocked the light. I made mine with complete sides and was very glad that I did.
