Room darkening Windows

I will be snowbirding in New England for 6 months
come May.
I took my new 2018 Intent 30r to a local campground for a few days so as to get a feel for what is needed in there.
One thing for sure is the need to darken the coach when a) itís very hot and humid out and b) if I want to sleep in.
This bus comes with shades that are not room darkening but theyíre very nice and I donít want to have to replace.
Any ideas on hanging room darkening curtains (which Iíve found on amazon) in that little space between valance and shade?
Thank you.

The Intent doesn't have the 2-level day/night shades?

Like these:

They're not completely black-out in the dark position but are pretty dark.

I don’t think these day/night shades came with my 2018 intent.
I’ll check today.
Wouldn’t that be nice?
The specs just say pleated shades..
If not, there must be a way to incorporate lightweight room darkening curtains in front of the shades.
I’ve found some inexpensive ones on amazon.
Maybe petite kitchen cafe rods from Walmart?
I just need to figure out a way to hang rods in between the decorative fabric valances and shades as there’s not much room in there.
I wonder whether magnetic tape attached to rods and at each end of front of shades would work without falling down every time I went over a bump? Lol
Oow, what about those tension rods?
They have narrow ones that might work. Or maybe the ones that are used to keep stuff from falling out of cabinets.
I just bought a four pack of them for $8 so that one could be used to reach down to input my passcode at storage lot. It works too as they extend quite a bit.
Also need something for intent door window which heats up bus when sun comes through it.
There must be something more decorative than sunshades. Hang a little rod there, maybe?
Thanks for letting me think out loud...
