Default How do you cut down morning light? Where do I find blackout shades?

I'm relatively new to this game and have with a Roadtrek CS Adventurous that we have been traveling in for about 3 weeks. One of the issues we have is light coming in the back door windows and the rear side van windows of an evening (if the camping area is illuminated) or in the morning - when the sun comes up before we want to (which is probably more frequent than it should be but that's not the issue). We have shades for the windshield, driver and passenger windows that were provided with the van and work well (so our dog, who sleeps in front, gets to sleep in) but the pull down shades that come with the roadtrek are far from black out shades. I've seen class A's with magnetic shades "stuck" to the outside of their vehicle that look like they would work for us but I can't find a vendor. Could you share your experience with this and tell me where I might be able to buy a solution?

What style are the pull-down shades?

If they are pleated or honeycomb style, then can easily be replaced with blackout versions. You can probably find them at Home Depot. There are also ones that have both translucent and blackout sections. Definitely a worthwhile improvement.
