Temperature differences with window treatments

I did a test on window treatments as a heat load vs a/c. While camping at Ocean City MD at Frontier Town on Aug 5th at 9am the temperature was 77 degrees, the back of our camper was facing the East. The temperature reached 94 degrees for the high. Now the one pic that shows a higher temp is the one with the night shade pulled down maybe because it is brown and it attracted the heat. With the curtains pulled closed over the night shades it held the heat back or slowed it down. The temperatures were taken one right after the other, the time laps was less then a minute enough time to close each window treatment. A/C system not only conditions the air in the camper but It must condition the interior of the camper. If one helps to reduce the heat load, then the A/C system will not have to work as hard. We have curtains in all of our windows and we close off the sky lights and the windows in the doors.

That's what it seems like. I did the same test last year but didn't record the info. We were in Myrtle Beach at Pirateland for the first two weeks of July and had the same results.
