I think he's asking about blocking parking lot lights. I'd make some blackout curtains if you intend to camp in parking lots often, since they're intended to be well lit. The curtains can be made/hung in lots of different ways. For example, a simple lined curtain with a spring rod hung to the overhead cabinets using command hooks, or hung from the valances.

Cardboard blanks...then just store them under the seat cushions. I have a set for when the trailer is not being used to keep the inside from the sun. They can be made to sit on the knob or the lower plastic posts. Also protects the bottom of the seat cushions...it’s a cheap win win.

I just park away from the lights as much as possible and orient the trailer so the bed is away from any lights, then use my eyelids to block out the light. The only issue I had one time was when I woke up in the middle of the night the first time I used a parking lot and did not consider the light standard positioning, my mind thought it was morning and I had trouble convincing it otherwise.

United Shade, https://unitedshade.com/, makes the shades that ETI installs. United Shade offers the same shades in other colors and in blackout fabric. You must order through a retailer and not direct.

And I did a very simple portable thing.

Bought a small roll of reflectix, cut it to my window sizes and it gets put up every night at bedtime...Just tucking in place and pulling down the blinds...Keeps it nice and dark enough.. Daytime rides under the seat cushions..

Mind you I have an old trailer and it fits mine well....now not so sure about the new ones...

Hi: amirie... We stopped in at the Dollar Store and got a $2.00 windshield shade. Used it at the ETI rally in the big back(Classic) window of the trailer. Folds up for neat storage too. Alf

Alf, you overpaid, I thought everything was $1 at the Dollar store.

Depends on which one. Family Dollar = everything is $1.00. Dollar General = some items are $1.00.

But Dollar General sells a wider variety of stuff. And while neither offers anything like an upscale shopping experience, Dollar General has one more advantage over Family Dollar: it doesn't look like a bomb went off inside the store.

We have a 2015 "classic" and have that same "reflectix panel solution". It's also a good insulator. (So much more elegant than the 'dollar' solution!)
