Questions about shower curtain,toilet paper and cushions in a 69 Globetrotter

I have a few questions concerning my 69 Globetrotter. First one is what does the shower curtain look like and it's function in a wet bath type of bathroom. I have the tracks and snaps but would sure like to see what it looks like and works.
Second is the toilet paper,it gets wet in the original location under the sink. Is there suppose to be a cover?
Last is the tiny back rest cushions in the front area.Do they fold up out of the way when being used? Sure would nice if the bottom cushion slid out to make a wider bed.
I've been wondering if it's possible to have the table fold down to make one large sleeping area up front.
Mike

We also have a 69' GT with I believe the same layout. We bought it used and refurbished a lot of it.
In regards to the shower we just bought a single shower curtain and hooked it up to the rails. We found it works well without the snaps. I am 5'10 180 so it is a little cramped but leaving the door open does provide a little elbow room. Make sure the curtain long enough to stay inside the base though. The toilet paper...we just take off for a shower. Not the best solution but it works.

As far as the front dining area goes we have the same set up. We are only two so we never need the extra bed. When we purchased our trailer the were some boards that were designed to fit the space in between. We tried it once to see but could never figure it. We actually removed the wood shelf from the walls too.

If you have any other GT questions I would be more than happy to help. Always nice to find someone who has the same unit.

Are you sure that long tiny back cushion is in the right spot in your trailer? In my '69 Safari I have a curbside gaucho that has a long skinny cushion that looks just like that, it sits behind the cushions when used as a couch and is utilized when you pull the gaucho down to make the bed a double...

Nice work on your trailer,it's always great to see someones trailer and how they do things. I've been removing the toilet when I also. I'm thinking about removing the shelves/ backrest cushion mount and having larger cushions made.
Thanks for the help.
Mike

I'm pretty sure it's in the right spot,I have a similar size cushion for the bed in back that becomes part of the bed once it's deployed.
Thanks

Can you take a couple pictures of the lower curtain tracks. My original lower tracks are missing and I'd like to see what they lock like and how they mount.
Thanks
Mike

If you don't find the roll cover solution soon, a cheap elastic banded, clear plastic shower cap works great in the interim.
