Missing Window Shade for Door?

We have a 2014 Georgetown XL 334QS we purchased earlier this year. It has the optional dual pane windows which give it a clean and modern exterior look with no visible window frames. The MH door also has a dual pane window which like the other windows is lightly tinted. For some reason there is no shade or any type of cover to go over the door window. this enables people to easily see in, day or night. Before I make my own insert for the window I thought it best to see if anyone else with dual pane windows has some type of shade or cover for the window in the door.

Why not just throw on some Limo black window tinting?

We have a 335 and used a semi-transparent self adhesive film that has a frosted glass appearance. We left about and inch along each side to allow us to see who might be at the door. This is better than installing a blind on the door.

I had thought of that and it might turn out to be the best option. A shade or similar object that could be adjusted to let in more or less light would be the most ideal in my wife's opinion. There is a chance something should have come with the MH for the window.

I've never seen a MH door window with something already installed from the factory. I have the Camco cover and it's not my favorite (the velcro is bad too)

I was looking at this, but haven't yet made the decision...

My first motor home, a 2000 Tiffin Allegro had a drop down shade installed from the factory over the door frame. Very handy but at times it got stuck in the door when it was down and we were when leaving the rig.

Thanks Everyone

I appreciate the responses. I will probably make an insert to place against the window at night. At least now I know I am not missing something that should have been included with the MH.

DW sewed it and I installed it using wall glide tape and rail from cw.
DW likes the look.

GABoy, you and your wife make a talented team. Looks very nice. My 2011 GT has a frosted window on the door.

DW just cut and sewed some coordinating fabric and we velcro it at the 4 corners over the window.
