Curtains

I'm looking for curtains for my 68 globetrotter. Does anybody know of any place I can get them made. Thanks for the help.

There are several vendors who offer new draperies for our Airstreams:In addition, your Airstream dealer's parts department may be able to order new factory style draperies from Airstream. There are probably several other vendors out there who offer this service, but the four above are the ones that are most frequently mentioned.

Fowler RV Interiors have been responsible for the new drapes in both of my coaches. In the Airstream, I went with a material that was quite different from the original; while in the Argosy, I went with a material that is almost identical to the original.

Good luck with your investigation!

Kevin

I never sewed before and was able to make them for mine 79 Argosy in a weekend. You can buy the clips online, it makes life easier if you have a go by. Saved about $600 by doing them myself and they look great. If I don't say so myself.

Good luck

We have a guy down in San Diego that did our 65's curtains, and dividers! He did an awesome job at a great price. If you wanted to contact him, let me know and I can get his number

I had JPA drapes make mine for my Tradewind. I picked out custom fabric and sent it to Audrey vs. buying the fabric they had samples of. Worked out great, drapes were all perfectly done.
