Looking for a floor to ceiling"blackout" type curtain to minimize light from escaping. Want it to look like nobody's home at night with the lights on.
I realize I will need to "seal" the edges very well but that shouldn't be an issue for me.
I just don't want to waste money trying to discover to "right" curtain.

Look into sound curtains. Not the ones sold at Walmart, the ones used by clubs to keep noise inside even though the door is open. Blackout is a given for such heavy curtains.

I bought blackout curtains and a shower curtain rod at Target for not very much. The business side is black with a white liner, so the black side faces the cab. If someone looks in, it just looks like a dark hole.

We used these between front cab and rear living area. Sewn reflectix and/or Thinsilate inside for side window cover, bed-to-back door cover and garage-to, back door cover.

In all cases they were altered to fit. The material is 2 layers, gray on one side and black on there other.

The gray material snags occasionally but it's OK. Can't say I give these rave reviews, but I keep using them. I believe the price is very good.

Thanks for the idea. I'm planning to put a curtain in my rig also.

This guy used a projector screen - dual purpose! Per screen shot, look at 3:38 into the video.
