Looking for curtain sliders for globetrotter

Hi all,
We have been restoring a globetrotter and have found the info on this site invaluable. Thanks to all.
The curtain tracks are still in place in the trailer and I would like to reuse them but I don't know what kind of sliders go in there. Any ideas anyone?
I have attached a picture of the rail.
Thanks for any suggestions,
Marie

Thanks for the link. I have tried them but they're not sure they have what I need and postage to the UK is quite expensive if they turn out to be the wrong kind

We have a member who lives in UK who will be in the states for the International. You can contact him at duncan.ritchie@tesco.net . He lives in Warrington Chesire (don't know where that is). He will be attending the International and perhaps he would be able to bring back a sample of each of the curtain hangers. That way, you can select the correct hanger.

ok lots of info lst a great resource for resources
http://www.vintageairstream.com/rr_home.html

next this will show photo what you need is top right and you sew the plastic leg into the pleat of the drape.
http://www.beaconfabric.com/vindex.html on the far right

Good luck! You can order a bag online. Now does your trailer have a rod at the top and one at the bottom. the one at the bottom uses either a rolly glide or same as in photo. We were going to do curtaina and instead did Venetians. Good luck and the first link is a non profit site with more info thatn you could possibly imagine.

Oops on my second link
go on the right to notions then rv click on that; and then you will see various glides. You want the one on the top right and sew the plastic piece ( some vendors have elastic attached to that glide piece this looks like a plastic mesh) into the pleat.
