They take curtain rails top and bottom to hold them to the wall. And a FYI: if you decide to do curtains check ALL the curtain rails to see what type they are. I just went to hang a curtain and found out that half of mine are "G" tab and half are "T" tabs!

Mine are T tabs. except for the front wrap around. My side curtains in the front I had problems with the backing also. I am hanging the bedroom ones while they are still damp and backing is not sticking. I am going to have to do something about front side ones though.

I thought you had this type mustang. The T's are very small. The ones in the picture dont come with elastic, you have to add your own.

Kirsh tabs that is the name of them. I found a box of them stowed under the front couch. I have had this thing since 2000 and I am still finding things. Everytime I clean I am amazed.

We just got our 95 Classic Limited this week, my drapes are dry rotting and I thought about making new ones as well but the quanity scares me. Thanks for the info on the tabs. Has anyone else tried this? Is there a place to purchase that does not want big money? Thanks for the advice.

I have learned that I must let the washer on geltle do its thing but have to intercept the drapes before the rinse spin cycle. I have to pull them out water dripping right out of the washer full of rinse water, leave them on the line in the basement with dehimifier on they cannot be touching or the weird backing will stick together and ruin them.Once they are barley wet(after 4 hours) I then hang them in the Airstream making sure that the back material doesnt touch or stick until they dry. I have a few bad spots on the drapes. I am going to put in some mini blinds also. I talked to the Airstream factory and they said any mini blind is fine. So I am going to use drapes in bedroom area and in the front use mini blinds, with drapes on the sides. I think it will look good and give privacy.

good luck starfire. Silver threads has some great ideas and I also looked at interior threads and members albums. There is a Thread called show your stuff, that gave me interior Ideas. Drapes are expensive

Hello, Read all your posts today and washed all the drapes in cold water with woolite on a gentle cycle. I hung them outside to dry and boy are they clean. I am surprised how dirty they were. The plastic clips did great. Thanks for all the tips.

Vinnie

They also hold smells from camp fires and dusty conditions. Glad your clips held up good.
