Can someone tell me where and how the elastic, or non-elastic tabs are fastened the the drapes? Are they sewn in at the pleat. Also, the lady who made the curtains for the youtube airstream restore said that you should use non elastic on the top, and elastic on the bottom. Wonder how that would work?

Go with elastic.....they are the real McCoy! My 76 Sorvereign came with spare parts, including packages of curtain hangers.....and they were original and likely as old as the trailer...... and they are elastic. Bill

From this discussion I'm assuming my 1976 Argosy 24' would use the "T" Carriers on the top and the "G" Carriers on the bottom? I have the original tracks in place but no carriers or drapes.

Thanks!!

It is elastic that is used on the curtain carriers. If you buy some, they will come with the elastic already attached!

Not always true. The best way to see what you need is to look at the track. If the cut in the rail faces up or down, it takes a T. It the cut is on the side, it takes a G.

Most of my windows are as you described, but not all.

This week I finished replaceing the curtains in my new 1976 soverign.Mine was very bad and got the bright idea to take them down and wash and dye to try to save. Of course they came out in sreads. I'm trying not to spend my kids inherentance on this thing . I went to Bed Bath and beyond and bought standard curtains.Cut the elistic straps (363) off and sewed them on. They look great, way less then otherwise would have spent, very colorful but lots of work. They have lost some of the streach but are OK. If you want a good fit buy elastic. I replaced some and got them at camping world but cost $5.00 for 14.
