One thing we did notice is some of the shades don't come all the way down and therefore let a lot of light in when the sun comes up. I can't sleep with light shinning in my face as I think it is time to get up. So we have taken black fabric material and blacked out both windows in the bedroom in our 33.5RETS. Now the only light is coming from the skylight in the bathroom and that is the next project!

full black out shades are also an excellent way to prevent fading of the interior over time while in storage.

I used them on every window in my old TT for seven years, and the interior still looked brand new.

Oh, wow.... I was hopeful that the privacy shades would do a better job. Can't wait to spend more time in the unit to test that out.

The DW is quite handy with the sewing machine and picked some color coordinated fabric and made heavy black out panels. ( black on one side, patterned on the other)

I used the Grommet tool and put grommets in the two ends on the top.

2 clear thumb tacks at the top of the existing valance/window box to hang the panel from.

Simple and they work very well.
