Sky Light Shades

The sky light shades are very thin and sag. Does anyone make a stronger or wooden shade that is a direct replacement?

I made one for the outside that works great at reducing the heat/light and also the skylight itself.

My wife Laurel sews. She is going to make an upholstered foam plug with a handle or pull that can be pressed in.
She is also going to make dark curtains for the bedroom.
We like to stay up late and sleep in.

I bought a Camco product off Amazon. It's about 3 inches thick. It's insulated. You shove it up in the skylight opening. Does help keep the unit cooler in the summer. Totally blocks out the light.

We've always completely blacked them out and insulated them. There are a few pictures in our photo album "Forester Modifications". Remove inner panel, painted inside of upper dome, painted top side of inner dome, cover in reflective bubble wrap, put batten insulation in, resecured inner panel. Keep the head room, lose the heat and light. On the forester the upper color ended up matching the motorhome, however all the others I've done were white, which is probably better. We've done this to every one of ours, and to a few other people's RV's that liked the idea. Only thing, it's permanent, and if you like the light, it's a bad idea. I've seen others who have coated the top side of the dome with various coatings, and that works too. Just an idea.

x2. Easy on and off. Reflective on top side to keep heat out. Good insulation and completely darkening.
