26' Argosy rear bath window covering ideas?

I have the original medicine cabinet and roller shade but was not planning on reinstalling it. I'm looking for other ideas and pictures. I have been searching but usually I see the pics with no covering at all. The Argosy is new to us we haven't used it yet.

I also need to get a shower curtain, the original rod is there. How do you prevent water from getting to the toilet/window side?

The rear bath window seems to be a wet location. I was planning to go to the local Big Box store and purchase a roller shade and valance but I thought I would see if there are better solutions.

Adding snaps to your shower curtain and back wall, will keep the majority of the water in the shower basin where it belongs.

The original shower curtain was a piece of vinyl. It was the same material that the rear window shade was made from. I think there were also snaps on the curtain so that you could button the curtain to the wall near the wndow and the toilet the keep the shower water in the tub. I think that you can see one of the wall mounted snaps in the picture of the window. My parent's '75 Argosy had a door that covered the cubby above the toilet. It was covered in the same vinyl material.

The door over the toilet on ours was removed to allow the new toilet seat to stay up. We went with a two piece shower curtain, a clear vinyl that stays snapped to the rear wall and a fabric curtain for ascetic purpose. We have meant to add snaps to our rear window curtains but they haven't bothered us the way they are......

Thank you for the replies. The shower curtain, I thought would be easy but it's difficult to find the right length and width. Finding a standard $20-$30 shower curtain is easy but spending another $40-$50 to get it shortened and narrowed is difficult.

Reading the forums, button snaps to the wall seems the way to go. I understand you must be careful removing the curtain from the wall as the button can tear through the fabric.

I have the original rod and shower/tub. I have been searching for a curtain 48" x 64" or so? I'm not sure how the curtain will meet the toilet pedestal? May be I need to shorten it up more than I thought. Leave the liner longer inside the tub and the curtain just short of the pedestal.

To much info and over thinking.

If you just get a vinyl shower curtain you can cut it to length and width with a pair of scissors. The fabric curtain does need to be run through a sewing machine to keep it from unraveling. Hope that helps.

I have a 73 Argosy. The bathroom floor was horribly rotted and the tub was beyond repair. I used aluminum mini blinds on the window. Had to replace the tub and am making a hanging oval shower curtain rod so that tub is completely enclosed with curtain. Cut plexiglass to fit curvature of the wall and let it rest on the lip of the replacement galvanized steel tub to keep water out and to give a shelf to sit soap, shampoo, etc. on. I love the our original medicine cabinet

My 76 26 has original shade and medicine cabinet, well everything is still original. I saw a fabric Levellor (I think) mini blind at Lowe's with button on the bottom bar that makes them go up or smoothly pull down. Cool looking actually. Probably pricey. One thought to remember is get rear window shade that is easy to open for traveling and you may be able to watch traffic behind with your rearview mirror. Helps in traffic and reassuring if backing trailer.

I wish I was that creative. I repaired the existing tub. The PO had a safe in the tub which cracked it.

Do you have a picture where the blinds meet the shower curtain?

Never though about that. That is a great tip. I never towed anything I could see through, limited view but something is better than nothing.
