Alan's seat cover

Alan,

I was looking over the picture you posted on how to hold down the TV and noticed your nice custom drivers seat cover. Do you have front curtains? I could not see them in the picture?

Just wondering if Airstream tried to reduce costs and not install front drapes.

We had that beige drape in the front on a track- it was worn out and thin- we bought a new one, then took it back and got that solar screen silver bubble stuff. It fits tight and blocks the light way better than the curtain did. We then bought a roll of it for 15 dollars...and made the side window inserts for the front. Looks really slick from outside as the windows are all silver when covered, and the sunlight is blocked very effectively. Total cost was 28.00 , the curtain was 125, and would have needed the airstream hanger sewed into it.

Window covering

What is the name of that "silver stuff"? We had some covering made for the windows out of a black with tiny holes in it you could see out but it blocked the incoming sun a bit. They couldn't do the rounded back windows. It is if a soft plastic that when slightly dampened it just clings on. Kinda of a pain to do the front sides are ok and we have really only used it if we are staying for some time as it is put on the outside.

And where did you get the "Silver Stuff"?

Edie has made new drapes for the coach, including the front, keeping the heat out is as important as having a comfortable, quiet interior.

HERE IS THE AD FROM CAMPING WORLD. We bought the fitted front shade first, then got a 100x36" roll to cut for the sides. Also fitted a peice for the door window, which had a really ugly pull down shade. Now we look so much more hi-tech. The stuff is actually a foam liner with silver Bubbled material on the outside, when we cut the roll we used silver duct repair tape to seal the edges. The fron piece was pre cut and needed no taping. For the entry door I use small velcro tabs to hold it on.
