Cut out some reflectix to fit a little big and glue magnets to the corners. Then glue magnets to the roof around the skylight. I also used it to make side widow and front windshield screens. All have magnets. Lot cheaper than sunscreens. Shaved 15deg off inside temp. . Works great
Reflectix is sold at Home Depot btw

I have not check the cost but my new camper has a slide day/night shade over the sky light in the kitchen area . Thinking about buying one for the bathroom. Order through FR. They look to be both the same dimension. Pics here look also to be same size as mine. Later RJD

Speaking of painting your BR sky lite. Here's a thought. Some of the local growers cover their greenhouses (glass and "plastic") with Kool-Ray Classic Shade paint. It cuts down sunlight and heat is eco friendly and formulated to wear off as the days get shorter.

That's one solution but I don't like that its designed to wear off. I've also found this product, which I also like because its not solvent-based (don't want to risk damaging the acrylic).

ProGuard products. Liquid roof or EPDM supercoat. Similar to liquid rubber. I had checked with skylight manf. first and ProGuard before doing it. No problems. Very thick.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.

Our Dinning area Sky light has a white fold up shade,,, it has been cooked by the sun,,, as of now I am using to t hold a pic of cardboard,,, which I am going to attach Reflectix too...

Magnets are an interesting Idea !!!
But I believe the frame on ours is plastic ???

Just remember once the sun is in the vehicle so is the heat... Block it outside for best results.
