We put the Levolor, full black out shades in the bedroom of our MH a couple of years ago. They are great and when we were in Alaska last year, we had no problem sleeping when the sun didn't go down until almost midnight. Even tho it didn't get really dark outside, it was dark inside. They really block out the light. It seems that every campground has security lights that are right next to our campsite, too!

You might be interested in www.cellularwindowshades.com . Their "Energy Track" system adds plastic tracks (rail) and a groove (sawblade kerf) cut into the edges of the shade. The shade slides along these rails, providing support all along the edges and sealing against air flow around the sides (as well as better blocking of light). The result is an R value of 5 when the shades are down. I think they're a natural for RVs.

It's a bit of work to mount them, but the typical RV window "box" should generally work pretty well. I've been very pleased with them.
