Skylight in Bathroom

We spent some time in AZ this past winter, and found that the amount of heat from the sun passing through the skylight was a bit much. I'm looking for ideas on how to mount a shade or ? to block the sunlight.
Thanks
Bill

Bill you can Velcro some silver bubble material to the frame and that would reflect heat outside and darken the interior. OR if you can get on the roof 4 small sand bags and some black or silver plastic over the bubble with the sandbags on the outside edges holding the plastic down..

I believe CW sells a black-out pull shade made for the skylights.

I have one from CW. It's a reflective shade. Really didn't fit perfectly but does the job. Also bought the one for the bedroom vent. Just pushes up in the opening. The morning light beaming in after a night of abusing alcohol isn't such a welcomed event.

Note to anyone that may care... I'm going to install black vent covers. Leaving them open should take care of any heat issues and should prevent excessive sun light issues in the early AM when sleeping in.

I live in AZ and use the door window cover on the skylight in the bathroom shower like this - Solar Entry Door Window Cover, 24" x 16" - Four Corners 26406 - Window Covers - Camping World
Just put the 8 pieces of Velcro on the skylight frame.

For all of the normal square vents, I use the vent cushions with the reflective material on top.

I haven't experienced it yet, but I would assume it'll keep the trailer cooler in the summer as well.
