Door sun glare is annoying!

We have 2 tables in our 28' by the sofa. Mine is the smaller one by the door of course. The door glare..is there a cute solution for some elimination?

Do what folks used to do in the days before insect screens were invented… hang a bead curtain in the doorway. In my neck of the woods, it's a great way to recycle old Mardi Gras beads!

Move to the other table, let someone else figure out the glare solution. (you are the boss, aren't you.)

Your description could use more detail as to light source and when/where, but if what you are referring to is similar to what we experienced, it is easy to put a sheet of solar film on the small door window. Rather than a curtain type approach, we used a medium opaque in smokey grey to cut down on the light penetration. A small amount of soapy water and careful cutting made the end result look OEM.

I removed the film this winter and added new screen material to the inner door. I replaced the silver colored metal screen with a heavy vinyl, black, pet proof screen which has a denser weave and cuts down some of the sunlight. The particular weave I used is typically used for outdoor pool enclosures in Florida.

Turn the trailer around so its the other sides problem...

Boy...and you thought we were going to be helpful

In my trailer I had snaps around the window areas that were riveted on probably so reflector screens could be popped on when the trailer was in storage to protect the interior. You could always rivet some snaps on and make a small curtain to place up when needed. Is the glare coming from the table, glass or the aluminium on the door itself?

My Bride made a curtain with pockets top and bottom. Then we used compression rods to mount in the window.
