Did you see post 47 in this thread regarding 26U curtains?

You're a long time underground!

Hey, we have 1988 Excella 34. I bought some ready made striped curtains, lined them and had a seamstress friend of mine attach the little "hanger dudes" so we could use the existing tracks. They look really nice. We attached the ready-made matching valance. The lining was a was either white thermal panels cut to fit OR off white cotton material that we cut to fit. That way from the outside, there is a uniform appearance and not stripes. For the bedroom, I bought a pretty red, blue and white stripe king size sheet, cut it up, lined them again with off-white cotton fabric and hung them on curtain rods. Then I found sheets to match. Again from the outside the lining presents a uniform appearance. It all looks very nice. So yes, you can use ready made curtains. And you can do it yourself. You do have to purchase the hanger dudes from Airstream but we have been pleased. This is lesser expensive solution. I bought extra curtains in both sizes (24in fits into front end) "just in case" somehow something gets ruined.

Thanks LilBigfoot. We did read that post. Huge improvement but we wanted to see see if a replacement set was cheap enough to do a more comprehensive cover up. May revisit that idea or try one of the ideas referenced earlier.

Also Interested in-any manufacture information about blinds that are covered on tthe top covering their working mechanism. We bought blinds custom fit to the windows from Home Depot and when they were installed the top of the blinds mechanisms were visible to anyone standing in the AS. That's because we have no drapes. We're looking for blinds that the mechanisms is fully enclosed. Any suggestions?

Mine look like they're 6" too narrow. They barely close in the front and back.

$1150 for one set? I could fly a seamstress in from Italy and have her sew a set for that.
