O.k, My husband is busy doing the heavy stuff to spruce up our 1967 newly purchased AS, I am excited about the interior design aspect. I need some imput on curtains, I have some ideas but could use some help with the hanging hardware or how to install the curtains.

welcome to the wonderful world of vintage Airstreams. Do as much or as little as you want, or need to do. About curtains or draperies, did the trailer come with any hardware? If so, use it, you may have to buy new carriers and most rv stores or vintage trailer, inland rv have them you can order. Also whatever you do, remember an Airstream is curved so if you don't attach both the top and bottom to a rod the curtains will hang away from the wall a LOT! Lots of good idea's here on the forum page. Have fun.

Drapes in Trade Wind

I had my drapes sewn by JP Ambruso. They know how to do it right and can provide the hooks, hardware to make it work like new. We actually picked out our own fabric and sent it to them and they did the sewing. If you want to do it yourself then research the forum, look at pictures and best thing I've learned is don't get in a hurry. We made out own partition drapes between the kitchen and bedroom and my wife had to sew it three times to get the stitching right.

I bought my curtains at

I got the top and bottom rod curtains they recommend for airstreams. I LOVE THEM.

I am thrilled with them. I was so glad to get rid of the miniblinds.

Good Luck
