Curtains

1988-345 Classic Airstream Motor Home
Seeking someone that can redo my interior pleated curtains. They are in great shape but are old and dusty rose just isn't my color...
Thanks

If you find a source, please post it. Our 310 needs new bedroom curtains.

Check with JPA in Pennsylvania. They just did a whole new set of drapes for my AS. It took a while to get them and it wasn't cheap, but their quality is exceptional and they're experienced working with Airstreams. Nice people too.

Second vote for JPA Drapes, but also there is Air Drapes, Fowler RV Interiors, and AZBambi Décors

I also recommend JPA. I had them make my new drapes a few years back. Excellent quality.

I would love to see some up close pics of the attachment parts of anyone's curtains. PO's wife did ours and they are OK, but I am going to sew some new plastic sliders on and maybe some Velcro so they stick together and snaps for the ends. I just wonder how the original ones looked. How many inches from the top were they sewn and how many inches of elastic. Ours seems a little but wrong and lots of plastic parts are broken.


We definitely will be buying some blinds too. The original ones shed paint off the wood parts if you look at them sideways, much less actually move them or drive. How are you getting the aftermarket blinds to follow the curve?
