Shade for Door Window

Anyone do anything clever to cover up the opaque window on the door of their travel trailer? There are times when the sun shining in (late afternoon especially) is too bright.

We took some room darkening fabric and used magnets to support the fabric over the bedroom door window to darken the bedroom.

Thanks, that's a great idea! I'll be stealing it for our camper.

I bought this shade from IKEA for $20.00 just to try it out and to my surprise it worked out just fine. Does a fairly good job of blocking the light out. Lowes has a large selection to choose from (suppliers) and material. Jayco's shades are cheap and the strings are old school and to me just not worth restringing.
I attached it to the valance with 2 drywall screws 1" long.

^ ^ ^

DW is quite handy with the sewing machine and made black out curtains for several of the windows, along with some Velcro, they are easy up and down

( two layers sewed together - back is black, front is a pattern that looks good with interior design)

We like our bedroom very dark, 'cuse we like to sleep late.

Got blue (any color will due) poster board from Wally Mart. Slides in between door and screen door for that window and two pieces are needed to cover the window next to the door. The cords securing the blinds keep them against that window.

Neither moves during travel.
