Need a quick temporary fix

We have a 69 Sovereign that we are taking to NC from CO in early July. We are attempting to putting in acrylic that we picked up from Lowes, since all the windows were missing when we bought the trailer.

The goal is to put something temporarily in place. Next off season, the plan is to put in something a bit nicer. That being said, whatever we roll with for now needs to be able to come off. Two part epoxies and all that need not apply

Here are the three items we have tried on the acrylic. For all of them, we tried on a untouched section, and a section where we roughed up the suface a little. After 24 hours, all of them seem to rub off fairly easy with a finger tip.
  1. GE Premium Waterproof Silicone GE50.08 (Window/Door/Attic/Basement)
  1. GE Premium Waterproof Silicone GE5050 (Aluminum/Metal)
  1. LOCTITE Polyurethane Sealant (Window/Door/Siding)
    Loctite PL Polyurethane Window Door and Siding Sealant from Loctite Adhesives

Does anyone have any recommendations on a Lowes/Home Depot product we can use for the time being? Or, is this type of rubbing behavior expected?

Thanks in advance.

I would try aluminum tape. I taped acrylic over the window on the drivers side with al tape when we went to Alaska. Stayed on fine. Get the thin acrylic storm door glazing from lowes, cut it to fit outside the window frame, and tape it on. should work fine. the more expensive the tape, the better it works, so do not go cheap on the tape.
