Blocking the light - 274DBH

Anyone have recommendations for blocking all the light from the windows in a 274DBH?

Blocking the light - 274DBH

I have a 2016 274DBH and we have no issues with light coming through the blinds as we have a dark colour scheme and dark, wood blinds.

Something that I was a little worried about before our first trip out, but fortunately we wound up being lucky. Heavily treed campgrounds help though for sure :-)

We tinted the windows in our bedroom and the one bunk. 5% from walmart. I also made Refletics (think tin foil buggle wrap) windows covers if we are in direct sun or need to keep the inside cooler. Otherwise the wood blinds do well.

I cut/put Reflectix in all of the bedroom windows. Blacks them out.
