No, those are "Pop-Up Gizmo's" aka PUGS
PopupGizmos

The the DIY version is a cheap heavy duty "space blanket"

Thats them.....I had the "high wind" set for my 21 SSO because the valley heat and mountain snow set up 35-40 mph sustained winds at times.

Very likely. The Reflectix I am referring to looks like a foil covered bubble wrap. I buy it by the roll at Lowes or Home Depot. Reflectix is actually a company name, and they make a lot of products (not just the bubble wrap stuff I am referring to).

Just got back from desert southwest. Highs in the 90's every day. AC kept the trailer nice and comfortable. After a day of travelling the trailer would be quite hot and it took the AC a little while to cool it down. However once it caught up it was able to maintain quite well. We do not use reflectix or PUGs.

We Pull the curtain until we are ready to go to bed at night.

HI Meadows11!!
WE had the same issue a couple of weeks ago. No shade with the sun beating down all day. We could only get the inside temp down to around 85 with the outside temp at 95. Cooler but not what we hoped for. Both bunk ends were open but the curtains were closed. Ended up getting a little fan to move the air around. It helped. Wife and I discussed things a bit and we knew the AC had cooled the camper with the front bunk closed a few times. Once the sun dropped and the evening came the camper cooled right down. We both figured the open bunk ends had a lot to do with the AC bustin tail to cool the unit. I ended up talking to a service tech at the dealership and he more or less confirmed our thoughts about the bunk ends letting the cool out. He also wanted me to bring the camper in to check out the AC. I passed on that. The only thing I can tell you is that the small fan we got did move the air around to cool the camper to where it was comfortable.

Oh it helps keep the heat out in the summer quite well. I open my bathroom ceiling vent a inch to help let the warm air out for about a hour then close it. curtains closed. or even close the bunk facing the sun or turtle and close them both till bedtime.
