Window Insulating

Any one have any ideas or recommendations on how to insulate the windows better? We can always feel cold air coming in.

There are "storm window kits" available at WalMart, Lowe's and Home Depot. The kit consists of sheets of "heat shrink mylar" and double sided adhesive tape. You can apply them to all the windows that normally remain closed and to the "big stationary panes" of the windows you need to open for ventilation.

If you prefer, you can buy "quilted broadcloth" from any fabric store or Amazon. It consists of a top and bottom cotton/poly broadcloth with a polyester batting filler. Cut panels to fit each window, sew Velcro tabs to the corners and the quilts in place when it's cold, remove when the sun is shining to get light and solar heat into the trailer. They can also be used as 'light blocking panels" when you don't want sun or light shining into the trailer. Here's one sample of the "quilted broadcloth", https://www.amazon.com/Fabri-Quilt-A...quilted+fabric

You might also consider buying a 4x8 sheet of 1/2" rigid foam board and cutting panels to fit each window. That would be bulky to store and they would take up space if removed during the day, but it's relatively cheap and effective.

I bought a roll of "reflectix?" and cut it to fit the windows that face the sun. Although we have the dark tinted windows, they take in tons of heat so we covered them all.
