1979 Ambassador Curtains

Can anyone give me some tips on where to look for curtain track and curtain tabs to slide in the track rails. On my 1979 Ambassador I only need about 10' of bottom track to mate up with the remaining bottom track in the sitting area. Then, I need tabs for both the top and bottom for about 10 lf of windows. Thanks.

I got the tabs from Vintage Trailer Supply when I redid the curtains in our 77 Argosy.

Does your curtain rod look like this? I bought some of this from Outdoors Mart and I had to send them this picture to get some of it. At that time, it was part number 101225 but I could not find it on their web sight. Parts appear to be drying up.

I got tired of those plastic tabs breaking in my '69 Overlander and my drapes were shot so I made curtains and lined them, sewed rod pockets on top and bottom mounted the round cafe' rods inverting the bracket so that the rod would be closer to the wall. No more drape tab braking, no more bunched up cloth or sun leaks, or cloth hanging at weird angles from the curved walls. When mounting the brackets on the bottom put them in same place where the snaps for drapes were with pop rivets.
