curtains/drapes

Our new CCD came with 4 sections of drape that supposedly is supposed to stretch out to entirely cover the front window at night. Well, it left gaps. Airstream needs 5 panels of those drapes to really get coverage.
So, good old Wallmart. They carry curtain panels of which I bought one pair of 36" panels. I folded down the top section to fit and put in 7 drapery hooks on each side to lightly hook over the "curtain rod". They tuck in neatly at the bottom and my husband was SO impressed. lol.

Drapes

That is surprising, the drapes in the AS cover the windows quite well and the front window appears to be the same.

I did put some velcro spots at the join to make them stay together a bit better. There tended to be a slight gap where the center support keeps the sliders from coming totally together.

I see John. I guess we got a fixer-upper. lol. The drapes that came cover, but not really comfortably. There are skinny gaps between. But, not anymore!

Drapes

I was just out at the trailer and looked at the drapes. I have an estimated 3 to 4 inches of surplus coverage. Sound like you may have been short draped (kinda like being short sheeted, I guess).

Might I suggest you measure the panels involved and contact the factory or your dealer to be sure they are correct. You know all the silly statemenst regarding goof ups. Maybe they just put in one short panel that is designed for a diffrent floorplan??? Being that it is a new unit I would consider this a warranty isue.

Just my measly $.02 worth ( gotta save for paint ya know)

Thanks Brett for your $.02.
If I hadn't just put up my own panels I would follow your suggestion. My own added a nice decorative touch so it's ok.
It was also extremely easy.

A guy from Airstream called me last week about my drawer problem. Too bad I didn't think about those drapes then.
It never occured to me this could be one of those little problems.
