A&E Dometic window awning question

We're looking to install A&E Deluxe Plus Window Awnings on a couple of windows on our Class A. I'd like to have the valance of the bedroom awning extend as far down as the bottom of the window for additional privacy. Can anyone tell me the size of the valance on the standard 18 inch A&E awning? Even more helpful would be knowing how far the bottom of the valance is from the center of the roller bar The window is 25 inches high.
Thanks for any help.
Al

Check into the tall window awning with tall hardware and it should pull down to the bottom of the window. Good luck and keep us posted.

Or you could install a normal size A&E awning, and put dark tint or silver reflective privacy film on the inside of the bedroom window. Privact without even pulling the awning down. They sell this stuff in H.D. & Lowes.

Thanks for the replies Mike and CaptBill. Since both windows are on the same side of the coach and the larger of the two isn't a privacy issue, I'd prefer to not spend the extra money on tall hardware for both awnings and I'm thinking that it may look a little weird with one standard and one tall. It's still an option if all else fails, though. Also, the primary privacy issue is after dark with interior lights on when we are reading in bed. The top of the mattress is just below the window glass. Since we do a lot of camping without electrical hook ups we need the windows and shades open for ventilation. I don't believe the reflective tint will be of much value after dark with interior lights on but thanks for the thought. I do have a request in to A&E for the needed measurements but I was hoping for a quick answer here. I guess that I could also visit a dealer lot and locate an awning to surreptitiously measure.

Al, just in case you were not aware; you can buy that privacy window tint in several varieties of "frosted glass" look, that do not allow anyone to see inside, whether it's night-time with the lights on, or not. Still allows the room to be illuminated during the day, but it would be like having glass-block or frosted windows.

That's one more option, thanks CaptBill.
