After 12 years in a 5'er with non slide out rooms, we upgraded to an Excel with 2 slides. I would have preferred one without a bedroom slide, but when shopping the used market beggars cannot be choosers.
The rig we found is satisfactory for most of our needs, but after only three nights in the bedroom I have decided something needs to be done with the window at the head of the bed! I guess I tend to flail my arms around a little in my sleep, and on more that one occasion I have woke up to find myself tied up in the blinds! (well maybe not tied up, but certainly making a mess out of them.)
I can see no reason to have a window at the head of the bed, so I am looking for ways to deal with it! Maybe tint the window really dark on the outside, and cover it with a picture or something on the inside? How about removing the window? I see a lot of 5'ers on the road the have bedroom slides with no windows, and I would like to improvise something to mimic those.
I did a cursory search on these pages and didn't find anything, but if I missed it... please point me in the right direction!
Here are a couple of pictures of my rig to give you all some food for thought!

Thanks in advance for your ideas!
