We used velcro strips to hold some of the silver insulation over the window. The silver stuff is about a quarter of an inch thick and can be found at a hardware store. It comes in a roll.

I was born with nothing and I still have most of it left.

My 2011 Skylark has a shade on the door when I purchased it; it's black and pulls down with an accordion style shade

Use a Window sun shade

Our 2011 Skylark does not have the shade. We bought a shade that is made to put in your car windshield. We cut it just a little wider than the window and matched the curve.

We also used duck tape on the edges that we cut. It looks pretty good. Not sure how long it will last.

duck tape
My kinda folks! Love it...

I have made Blackout Curtains before out of heavy duty fabric and industrial Velcro. You really need to sew the ends and the Velcro if you go that route. Not as nice as a shade, but if you really want it dark it works well.

We purchased a light blocking shade that attaches with adhesive-backed velcro. We also purchased one for the forward vent, which lets in the light of a full moon, RV park street lamps, lightning, etc.

I am not sure about your TT, but I tinted the window on both doors on my TT.
The link below is to my thread showing you the difference before and after I tinted the bathroom door window:

They also make a frosted texture window film. I applied it to the sidelights on the front door of a home I owned and it does a great job letting light while giving a sense of privacy.

Good Luck

I purchased a car front windshield silver shade. I fits perfectly inside the door and even has a notch for the handle. I used small square velcro tabs in each corner to adhere to the door, but I have not removed it since I put it in. Keeps the bright morning sun out and privacy at night. Works great!

Being the rocket surgeon I am, I screwed a couple of those duckbill paper clips to the wall. Night comes, I hang a dark towel over the door.
