[QUOTE=scampersteve;544501]For the small windows in galley area I used some Reflectix (foil bubble-wrap insulation from Depot) attaching it with 3M velcro fasteners. Stows behind seat cushions when not in use. Actually I did the same for all the windows. Took out the ugly dark brown curtains.
Wife doesn't like it ...says looks too industrial! But it provides complete privacy at night, blocks daytime sun and heat and in late season provides some night time insulation and is great for winter storage. What's not to like?
When I redid the curtains on my Scamp
I lined them with a light weight thermal window lining fabric
available at most large fabric stores. It comes in various thicknesses. It has a very light
plastic type coating (still feels like cloth material though) on the side that goes against the window to prevent the curtains from soaking up condensation & prevent mold from forming on the curtains & I have noted it does have some thermo benefits in cool weather. It also helps to give the curtains a bit more stiffness for a more finished/neat look when hanging and blocks out light
- just make sure you make the curtains large enough that they sit a couple of inches above & below the top an the bottom of the window frame as well as the sides & 3x the width of the window so you have enough material to pull them together tightly (they are not pulled tight in the picture but they do close so no light comes through the middle).
