My reflective black out blinds have been brilliant, I have an exterior front windscreen and side window cover too but don't use it as it gets 'wet' in the rain and dew so becomes annoying hence why I have only ever used my awning once or twice as it's inconvenient to air afterwards. Will always get condensation, blinds exacerbate not cure the issue as they trap the warm damp air from your body against a the cold window, even with venting/heater and a window open you get a little. For me a decent 4 season sleeping bag and a couple of windows open with the interior blackout blinds works well. Don't tend to wild camp much from now until Spring.
