Darkening trailer for baby sleep

Hi there! New to forum. We have camped for several years but are new to having a baby! Used to just our dog with us lol. Any tips for getting trailer dark for naps/bed for an almost one year old? Thinking of just putting towels on windows... Not wanting to spend a lot on new blinds. Any other tips welcome think garbage bags would work? Baby will likely sleep in playpen instead of bunks as we have yet to find a bed rail to fit bunks.

I put blackout material on my skylight . It was beige in color and attached with Velcro. It worked very well in keeping the heat and light out.

The windows in my trailer were factory tinted.

But on the front two windows by the bed I had a tint shop install 5% tint. Now it's nice and still fairy dark during the day and with the blinds closed at night nothing comes in.

Just a thought.
