Cover for the small window in the door?

I would like to have complete privacy in my 2018 30DS and would like to cover the window in the door. How do you all cover it? I could put a small curtain on a tension rod there but then would have to separate the screen door from the solid door anytime I want to open or close it. My campground neighbor suggested getting some one-way film applied to the glass that allows you to see out but no one can see in. Have any of you done this and if so, where did you get the film and how did you apply it? Thanks.

Wow! Mine is also frosted.



I would get some one way window tint. You should be able to pick it up at any auto-parts store or order off amazon. Heads up, applying that stuff is a skill set!

I had the pebble textured glass in my door. Because I like to see out the door window when someone comes to the door, I removed the original glass from my door, replaced it with regular window glass with dark automotive tint film. The film keeps the glass from falling out if it gets broke. I did it with my previous 2005 TT also and haven't had one break yet.

We use Reflectic on every window for complete privacy at night time, .... from the outside, it's almost impossible to see any light inside, ... on our two doors, we slide the Reflectic into the inside grooves of the screen door frame, easy to do and works great, ...

Window cover for the door

I also installed the slim shade window replacement. It was reasonably inexpensive on Amazon. And extremely easy to install.
I like the fact that we can now look out our door and see everything. And how the black glass matches the other windows while giving us privacy during the daylight. And, since the Murphy Bed in our 2016 2304KS is near that door window, We especially like how the shade blocks the sun (unlike the original frosted glass) in the morning when we're sleeping.

Which one of the suggestions do you want further information on.

Slim shade replacement window

I found the cheapest price on Amazon for the AP Products Thin Shade replacement window.

The retractable shades that are meant to mount over your roof vents to keep the sun out will cover 90% of your door window. The mounting brackets are adjustable so you can use two of the existing screws to mount it. I closes between the screen and the door but I leave ours down all the time anyway.

We got a piece of poster board and covered it with a piece of fabric to match the decor. Put Velcro on the window frame and the fabric cover and stuck it on. Not a permanent thing, but we leave ours on all the time.

Stained glass

We bought a stained glass window at the FROG rally. I know they sell them on line and it was super easy to install. I will look for the link and post if we have it.

Door window cover

They sell and I purchased an insulated foil cover that fits that window. You Velcro 4 corners and stick it on. It does a great job of reflecting heat, either keeping it in or keeping it out. $15ish. And mine is frosted as well but spend to much time in the heat.
