Looking for a different approach.....

We took out the wall between the bathroom and the twin beds that we had in our Argosy.....we really like that it has opened up the feel back there....so we are thinking about instead of putting a door back there...just going with a curtain back there.....and then putting some type of track for just the curtains....anyone out there have a source for this or any ideas of what to do??????

HA! Our bathroom door in the Argosy 20 was giving me fits. Our solution was to get a lined drapery panel (Liz found one at Target for about $15.00 in just the right color). I secured the door in the full open position with a 1/4 X 20 bolt and hung a curtain rod. A good friend shortened the curtain to the appropriate length and made a tie-back with the left over material. Works great! BTW - because it's a lined panel (the lining is bonded to the fabric), it works as a room darkening curtain as well as a door.

Caution to removing walls/bulkheads in Airstreams. They are a big part of the integrety of the overall stucture. Removing them could cause buckling and sagging.

Hmmmmmmm.......

This might be a hijack, but are we sure about this?

I'm not real sold on the concept that my 1/8" bulkhead beside my fridge is doing anything structural.

The general Airstream structure has everything to do with interior & exterior panels and integral frames. I'd be interested in hearing directly from the designers if any thought other that weight distribution is given to "furniture" placement.

Wow, I love this forum....Dan you do have a point....that is exactly what we pulled out from that side of the trailer.....the other side has the true "wall" still in tact with the closet holding the plumbing, hot water heater, and panel box....so not too sure either about the small piece of wall that was pulled out
