Silver threads, You can get the carriers you are looking for at any drapery shop or workroom. If you can't find them tell me and I will get a vendor listing and be able to sell them. about 5 to 10 cents each.

Sliders

Thank-you Silver Threads, just ordered them, they should work according to the measurement of the slider. I made my first set of curtains from the originals, it was a challenge, now this set is so much easier to put together, don"t think I will quit my day job though.

Much thanks Silver Threads, just ordered the sliders. This is my second set of A/S curtains using the originals as a pattern, easier this time though, but won't quit my day job- :-)

I wonder if you could find these things in appropriate sizes to fit windows... of an Airstream? The window operators should be enough to hold them in place I think. Hmmmmmm what's that smell, oh, just the brain overheating.

We have been using the sun shades to cover our front windows. We bought two of the large ones at Walmart and they cover the entire front wrap around windows and the curtain rails and window operators hold them in place easily. We are right now in the process of making new curtains with the original plastic tabs. You can always open the curtains to show more of the trailor if you desire.

Double Curtains

Hi, these are double curtains that my wife made. When closed they block out a lot of light.

I am putting some decent curtains from a 75 into my 71. It's going well and I'm almost done.

FYI
The carriers are different from 75 to 71 and the 71 has 2 different type of carriers. Also I raised the lower track for the rear side window curbside a couple of inches to match the length of the curtains. No big deal and it works better with the rear gaucho anyway. I was able to recylcle most of the old carriers but I had to go out and buy some "large curtain carriers" which are the sewn in type. I used a Buttoneer to attach the carriers which worked very well.

We have created several sets of slip covers for our 19' '06 Bambi...this is the latest, which we call "Cabana"...curtains and pillows are out of a Sumbrella-like fabric...the dinette seat and back cushions are a coordinating ultra-suede and the bolsters behind the backs of the dinette seats are the original covers (Midnight Sun)... We make the curtain panels as 2 long panels rather than 4 short ones...we feel they look better and are managed more easily... We've even made a set for a friend of ours who has an '06 19' Bambi CCD... We also do matching bedspreads, throw pillows and pillow shams... Nothing like a change of atmosphere...easy to do in a Bambi!

Here are so photos of "Cabana"...

Bandit's new curtains

This thread is a great resource, and now we also have an upgrade to offer as Bandit has new curtains. They are a great improvement over the original light-weight white ones!

Improvements over the original design include:
Extra height to cover the top rail
Added width to allow for slight fullness when closed
Two panels are much easier to maneuver around window knobs than orginal 4 panel design.
Full length velcro closure
Black out lining blocks sight completely at night and adds some insulating value.

Eventually we plan to replace the bed with a sofa/bed combo ... but that probably won't happen until next winter ... or later.

Was it really clear back in November that I started asking about the curtain project??? Anyway... somewhere along the line I posted the fact that I had found material for our curtains but now.... lo' these many months later... we have curtains!!!! I can't send pics yet but the curtains and the valance boards are complete and are waiting to be but up!!

Phil reconfigured the curtain track so our new curtains will cover only the windows in the front and not the entire wall!!

I'll try to get pics on here soon. BTW... since we're from Minnesota, the fabric has blueberries (and pine trees on the pillows). Still have to cover the couch with denim... does it ever end!

Stay tuned....

Curtians

1986 27' Airstream Soverign
I removed all my curtians from my 86 Soverign and replaced them with Roman shades and aluminum blinds for accent. The roman shades come with a plastic rod to keep there shape so just remove the rods and replace with metal ones , then bend the rod to the shape of the window and presto your new blinds look great I hope this helped.
