Nice streamlined look! Do they open? How did you attach to the wall, they look different from the standard fare....

curtains

They are attached using the same plastic hooks and metal snaps as the originals that came with the trailer. We bought them at the Airstream store last summer while at Alumapalooza. They open but are a bit stiff because of the thickness of the fabric and the black out closth sewn on the back (they block out most light unlike the thinner white ones that come with the trailer). They are definitely much harder to slide open then the originals and the thickness prevents them being slid back as far. We'll know better after our first trip with them. Just got them in Thursday.

Do they Velcro together like the originals? You can always separate them, I like the way they block more light out of the trailer and they look great! Also keeps it a lot more private at night.

Velcro, snaps and hooks are exactly like the originals. Not sure i get get them as open as the ones in your picture given how thick they are. but they do block pretty much all the light which is great (especially when you end up at a campsight under a street light!). We haven't traveled with them yet. We might rig some type of tie-back to keep the open wider. We'll have to see as we use them. We just loved the look of the silver on silver aluminum ... we didn't really think much beyond that (like how easy to open, etc.).

I roll or tuck mine behind to make it open as possible. I really like the look of yours, can I ask how much they cost? Is the a item number or sku on the receipt?

When Greg makes curtains for the pano window of our Bambi, he makes them in two long panels rather than 4 smaller panels...we find them easier to manage, and when they are opened they are folded over the center window frame so they don't get crushed behind the dinette seat bolsters. Here's one of my favorite sets called "Paradise"...

We still have the originals in our AS. I'm surprised they haven't dry rotted, but other than a few of the plastic clips coming off, they are still in very good condition.

Curtains and upholstery were my winter projects. Here's my before-after transformation.

I have fabric sitting for six months now - waiting to get inspired to do the curtains. I think this thread did it for me. Thanks!

I'm making mine in 4 sections like the originals, but I'm joining the sections with invisible zippers. Just to look neater. Now to get busy so I have something to show!
