    We have 3 hybrid bed in this rig that pops out, but they are all a nice off white/tan canvas.
    They filter the light fantastic during the day, but early morning as the sun is coming up they filter the same brightness.
    Does anyone know if there is anything out there for hybrids to create a darker sleeping space? or has anyone gotten creative in making something for theirs? Hybrid or popup, same sleeping quarters.

    I was thinking of making curtains for the ends (the pole is there), but am concerned about the rings putting extra pressure on the canvas. Also have no side poles for the sides and the top is the worst!

    We just put tarps over the bunk ends to reduce the light coming in. We tie them down with bungie cords.

    That was thought, but seems like a pain. Was hoping I could get creative and "make" something permanent.

    On my popup I just use reflectix in between the canvas and screen. A thought I have been playing around with but haven't tried at least on my popup was devising a cord to attach to the back bar of the bunk and the side board on the roof by each side and just make curtains. Problem would be how to get curtains to stay put on the angle. And how to make them decent looking.

    Popup gizmos (pugs) do a wonderful job darkening the ends along with the reflixtic in the windows.

    I do the same thing. It works great, and is very little work to set up. Plus the Gizmos keep the heat out/in and protects the canvas as well.

    I have a Jayco Feather Export 17C. For the windows I made slide in shades made from
    reflectix. They slide in between the screen and the shade. They keep the heat in in the winter and the Sun and heat out in the summer. I also have High Wind Gizmos. CIMG0006.JPG
