With our 19 we sleep with our heads beside the fridge/bath wall. I get up way before my wife, and it is usually still dark, and I will read on that same side of the dinette. The light is completely blocked from her view. I would think in the 21, if the person last in bed slept along the outside wall, the same could be done.

It would be nice to have a track, so that the curtain could turn the corner around the bed, but this is a single-shell moulded fiberglass trailer - is it worth having fasteners (rivets or bolts) right through the roof to hold up the track? This is why tying into the existing vent attachment makes sense.

A home-made folding screen could be made with some panels of plastic covered in contact paper hinged to each other, or with some other lightweight material. I would not want to put anything on the ceiling because it might pull down something.

I'd use a tension rod across the foot of the bed from the bath wall over to the street side, should allow some privacy from the knees up.....

Not sure where you mean but maybe a tension rod could be used from by the door across to the driver's side wall, if a 7' one would possibly work.

From the corner bath wall, bedside over to upper cabinet, should cover the bed except for maybe 2' in from the bed bottom, but still some privacy

For those not yet owners, but going to be, do you think ETI could epoxy a few wood pieces on shell's ceiling about where an owner could attach an L shape curtain rod ? They epoxy these wood slats all over so as to attach all furnishing, a couple more seems simple.
