Egress window over head of bed difficult to read without curtain damage

Need help! Looking for a way to construct a support to prop pillows up so I can read in bed without damaging the window shades on a coach that has the egress window at the head of the bed. Must be able to remove support quickly to have egress access. Has anyone created a solution to fix this situation? Any suggestions will be appreciated!
Thanks Bob

I'm thinking of a backrest made from 1x2 wood that would span the top of the bed leaving a couple of inches between the wall/window and the 'new' headboard. It could be 3-4 horizontal 1x2 slats fastened to a couple of vertical pieces. Your pillows would hold it in place, for travel or exit it could be moved to the floor.

In the Newmar Essex or London Aire you would get sliding panels that open to the sides to expose the egress window. Without knowing the size or configuration of your particular window, would that work for you?

I have a buddy in Virginia that has a shop that cuts foam to size. He is making me 2 large wedge shape firm foam pieces that will easily store in the closet floor.
