Question Part needed to hang curtains

My '70 Tradewind was missing a bunch of these curtain hangers (for lack of better term) and the ones that are left are really rusted and ruining my expensive new curtains! Inland RV has advised they are no longer available. Does anyone know of a place to purchase these or have any suggestions on how to get around this? My new curtains need the old time curtain hooks and they would hook through the ring on the attached "hanger".
I wouldn't be opposed to even buying new tracks if I can get this problem solved.

Do you have a better picture?

We bought hangers for our 1971 at a neighboor's store specializing in drapes, but I cannot tell by the pix if they are the same.
All RV dealers have the same big product catalog, and I see in there carriers which look similar, as well as tracks to go with them. If you want to change the tracks, you do not have to limit your search to AS products only.

Looks like the shower curtain hangers I had in my slide-in truck camper, just a couple of wheels mounted to a U-shaped piece.

I think they slide onto a track shaped like an I-beam.

Call C&G Trailer in Bellflower, CA (562) 634-6286. They have been around 40 years repairing Airstreams. I bet they have what you need.

We had trouble finding the right hangers for our curtains.
It's was easier and cheaper in the end to replace the tracks. That way, if something happens, it will be easy to get new hangers.

Just our opinion.

I think the cata. from Southern Mobile Home and RV Suppy has a large selection of curtain hangers. 1-888-834-3796. Starting on page 208. I see everything that went on my drapes on these pages.

good luck........DAVE SPANN

Thanks to everyone for their suggestions!

Somehow I stumbled across RV Surplus and Salvage's website
Found the exact part I needed cheap! They work great. Heck of a lot less expensive and a lot less labor intensive than replacing the entire curtain tracks (which was one suggestions I received!).

I can always count on everyone here for good advise and support!
