I changed the screen in my door with solar screen material from Lowe's for just this reason. Easy to do and works great! You will have to use a smaller spline as the solar screen is a little thicker. Have replaced all the screens with this and it helps keep the trailer cooler.

Hi, I cut a piece of chrome/silver bubble insulation and stuffed it into one of the empty tracks in the window frame.

Scissors cut solar screen, but if you make a pattern first, you can take your time following the cut, lay it on saran wrap and carefully apply a bead glue(silicone) after it sets, peal off the saran and put 4 dots of glue at the corners, should hold up for a few seasons.

Going to look into getting our screens replaced. Will be in W Va for 4 months volunteering at Stuart Rec area by Elkins. Great idea!

We were given a solution - it is an attractive fabric "pocket", same on both sides, that slips over the top of the screen door and extends down almost to door handle. This blocks light and also serves for privacy at night as the original window cover in our '85 is gone. It fits like a glove over the door - rounded on top and straight across bottom edge. Door closes perfectly.

Window cling film can go outside or inside, and one side is bound to be smooth enough for it to stick.

Don't have to go with chrome/silver. Even clear bubbles (available for packing packages at FedEx and UPS) will cut glare, but will still let in light.
