They do. We use Reflectix in the windows to block heat/cold and that does a good job. But it really makes a difference even with them.

Top window are the new shades. Bottom window wasn't replaced.

On our 2015 Puma 359 THKS 5th wheel toy hauler.
Over the winter installed a used Onan 7000 including an inside switch and hour meter.
Installed a hardwired Progressive Industries EMS-HW50C Power and Surge protector.
Did some rewiring in the battery/storage compartment: Added a master 12vdc cutoff switch, positive buss bar, negative buss bar, master fuse/switch to the converter/charger and a small fuse block for those items which were connect to the battery, added a light in the battery/storage compartment.
Had a rack made to hold 6' long leveling boards and mounted it just in front of the rear stabilizer jacks (under the fuel tank) for easy access. There is almost zero outside storage on this unit.
Installed the 96" Valterra EZ Hose Carrier. Emailed Valterra because as designed it does not fit any RV for cross frame mounting. They send me replacement mounts. Maybe they will redesign it.
Replaced the front mattress and add mattress toppers to the HappyJack beds.
Adjusted the up limiter on the HappyJack to gain a few inches of clearance so our BBQ cooking equipment will fit in the garage.
Installed a quick disconnect on the outside shower and changed the lock from a key to a thumb knob.
Replaced the bathroom fan, which no one could reach without standing on the toilet to open, with a MAXXAIR with remote which we removed from out previous unit before we sold it.
Installed a flag pole holder beside the beaver tail door.
Replaced the shower road with the extend a shower rod. Had to be mounted about 6" higher that the original to clear the sink cabinet. Now have a longer curtain and more room in the shower.
Moved the license plate which hung below the rear bumper to the bumper. No more overhang or bend plate.
Have a somewhat steep driveway. Parking in the driveway requires the stacking of stacking boards (to a height of 8"about 10 feet in length) in the lower point of the curb. Boards get heavy so will be relocating the rear underbelly mounted spare tire to midship using the BAL Spare Tire Carrier, removing the birds beaks scrub bars and replacing them with skid wheels. Parts are here, waiting on our welder friend to do his magic.

reworked the mount for my factory water filter to fit the bumper (pressure tank took up space where water filter fit) its held in place with a SS bolt that drops in the hole I drilled in the bumper and bracket, both go in the store compartment when not in use.

Replaced both door windows with clear view black tempered glass so I now can see out the doors. Very easy mod about 30 min for each window.

At night, and all your lights on inside, Can you see in from the outside?

I'd like to know if you can see inside at night also, and I'd like to know where you bought the glass and if it came with the frame.

I had planned on filling with fresh water and loading tools, etc for our trip to the dinosaurs in Utah. However a visit to the surgeon yesterday convinced me to stay here and have surgery next week...

At night its just like the other windows I'm making a night shade for the doors.

It did not come with the frame. I got the glass from Ross RV innovations they shipped very fast. the glass is not cheap, but when I priced tempered glass local there was no real break because the glass company still had to send the glass to be tempered.
