Here is an image of what NASA did to a Ford Econoline van.The large radius nose sections of the van would be placed in front of the squared-off leading edges of the RV.
They could be 1/4-section members,hinged at the outer edge,and swung into place and latched after the doors were closed,or attached to,and move with the doors (which would be safer if you had to egress in an emergency),with the upper section of Plex or Lexan so you could see through it,just as NASA has done.
Here's the photo
