There are a number of AS curtain specialists advertised in the Blue Beret. They already have the correct measurements for every AS. They ship the curtains and the elastic/plastic hooks. We have replaced all of the original curtains in our 1980 Excella II. We machine wash the new curtains and they have held up well and look great after re-hanging.

I don't know anyone in so cal, but I had drapes made for my '82 280 by www.jpadrapes.com. I'm extremely satisfied. She is an expert on Airstreams and does excellent work!

Drape sets are also available from Airstream, through a dealer.

original drapes

Another possibility for drapes for your Airstream is Fowler RV Interiors of Symsonia, Kentucky. Arlene and Henry Fowler are true perfectionists and the quality of their craftsmanship stands the test of time. They created the drapes, upholstery, and refurbished the interiors of both my Overlander and Minuet. I continue to be thrilled with the quality and durability of their work.

Another possibility is a Forums member, Silver Threads, who has spent the past several years building a good reputation for quality and value.

Good luck with your investigation!

I met the lady who owns Air Drapes while I was at Alumapalooza and I now wish I had her make the drapes for my mojo. She knows textiles.
