1982 Scamp Jalousie Windows

The jalousie window frames sticks out into the cab interior about 1", with sharp edges. Need suggestions on how to make these areas kid-friendly.

Pool noodles or pipe insulation tubes cut in half.

Maybe paint the corners with PlastiDip it's often used for handles on tools, but should pad the sharp corners just fine. You can get it any just about any hardware store and it's available in colors.

I have the same year trailer and windows as you. I just redid all the cabinet doors and installed new wood floor throughout. My plan is to frame the windows with the same wood to match and stain them. This way you can dress up the inside frames as well as sand and contour the wood corners to preference to keep the little ones from bumping into them.

Thanks to everyone who replied-trying out the pool noodle idea but using outdoor pipe insulation-it's rubberized, black and has a sticky edge-hopefully it sticks during the summer heat
