(too) early to rise

Hi friends!

I have a '14 32bhds that I love. I'm looking for suggestions on keeping the early morning sun out of the bedroom. I'm frequently woken by 6 am and I like to sleep in a little while on vacation. I already close the bathroom and bedroom doors but the sun gets past the drapes. Any suggestions other than going to pep boys and buying a roll of window tint?

We bought a roll of this stuff, cut it to size and just push it into the window frames. Works well for us!

Reflective bubble insulation at lowes or home depot. Buy a role, cut to fit each window. We measure the window, cut the insert 1/2" or so bigger and usually a bowl or can laying around the shop will have a similar radius to mark the corners for cutting. Pillows in the roof vents. Insulate, black out, paint or just cover the bath skylight if you have one. We remove the inner panel, paint, fill with reflective foil and insulation, reinstall, and coat with outside of the skylight with our preference of stuff.

All this done, you'll sleep till noon if you want, plus you'll help any RV out in the summer with maintaining lower interior temps.

DW and I were watching one of the LongLongHoneymoon videos on YouTube and they recommend those fancy sleeping masks.

I did not have much problem with light coming in to the bedroom through the windows, but I had more of an issue with the light coming in from the roof vent, so I purchased a "Pillow" (for lack of better terms) from Amazon that fits in the vent.

See one of my previous threads showing the "pillow".
