Window covers

I have figure out what kind of window covers I want to keep cold and heat out of my living quarters, but I am not sure how to mount them.

I have 3 windows in my living quarters and they are all flush mount, with exposed screws like in the pic below. They are not evenly mounted over studs and I don't really want to mount directly through a wall.

I mostly use this trailer during the warm months so the goal is to keep the heat out. I am planning on using sleeping pad, closed cell foam, as I have used it in other similar applications with good success. With heat the foam does not have to stay tight against the wall.

We did make and unplanned over night stay one night when the temperature when we set up was 2f. At night anytime there was any small gap you could feel the cold drafting in. The heater ran most of the night, but we slept well.

So are there any good options for hanging this, or doing something similar? I know I could do self-adhesive velcro all the way around, but that looks tacky to me.

Here is a pic from the web that shows the window style I have,

We got a roll of Reflectix Shop reflectix at Lowes.com: Search Results and cut pieces to tuck in to the windows. We also had to use Velcro sticky back tape on a few windows.
