Hard to see in

Hard to see in at night. With the awning down and my fifth wheel sits high up, a person has to almost stand on the top step to see in. I used a silver tinted back tint on the inside of the glass.

Not sure yet. The tint is supposed to have some heat rejection. I doubt this will make any difference overall since its a small window. As for nighttime privacy I use a silver lined cover that has Velcro on it.

Here's what we did:

Stained Glass Window (film)

1. Cheap
2. Effective
3. Private
4. Sweet Wife reaaally likes it. (and we all like a happy camper)

You can't see out of it, but that wasn't one of our objectives. Just reducing uncontrolled heat and light coming into the trailer.

I really like that Chewie. I thought of the ERWIN:
RV Entry Doors

But couldn't stomach the $150 price tag.

This is a great idea.

Yea, the $150 price on Clear view was ridiculous. For less than half the cost of 1, I did both doors.

Is your second door straight to the bathroom? What are you doing for privacy back there?

Yea, it is. I was trying to find magnets with 2 sided tape and use those along with the silver reflective cover for the window.

I wonder if normal miniblinds could work- kind of like some home doors have where they're anchored at the top and bottom.
