Bright sun in the morning

I finally had a chance to take my trailer out this weekend for the first time. Everything went great for the most part. I had one major issue. At 6:00 am, the light coming into the fold out beds was so bright I could have worn my sunglasses. Is there anyway or products to black out the sun? The entire camper was soo bright. I would like something that is easy to put on and looks decent and somewhat inexpensive. I am sure I am not the only one that has this issue. I don't mind making something, just want it to look decent from the outside. Man, that morning was rough.

Thanks in advance

Black plastic garbage bags meet 2 of the 3 criteria: easy to put on and inexpensive.

I just hang a pair of dark-colored towels over my windows.

Get some posters and cardboard, cut the cardboard to fit, glue the posters to the cardboard, and voila!

I like sunshine in the morning, but that's another story.

Thanks for the info,
I came across a product called Pop Up Gizmos. Has anyone had experience with this product?
