72 Safari Wet Bath Shower Curtain setup

I finally installed my shower curtain rail and got my shower curtains up in my wet bath. I originally used a plastic liner but it was too bulky and the grommets I installed on the top of the liner ripped out, instead I found a microfiber liner which worked great, repels water, easy to clean, grommets and snaps remain secure in the fiber, and stores nicely when pulled a side. ($7.99 at TJ Maxx) I also used small paper clips as hooks for the liner that goes across my composting toilet and velcro straps to keep the curtains wrapped up when not in use. I used 1 shower curtain cut in half. Double sided hem tape kept the curtain from fraying from where I had to cut it to follow my airstream curve.

My Wife hand made our shower curtain also. We had the existing track still installed on the TT. We used the same curtain hooks from VTS that we used on the regular windows. They had to be sewn to the new shower curtain.
We purchased a nice soft shower curtain that had the weights in the bottom. In our 1960 Tradewind the shower curtain not only has to cover the door but needs a cutout to protect the bathroom sink. When she cut the material it started to unravel. She was not very happy:-) But it really looks nice.

I got it from camping world. It comes in 8ft length. I have more than half left. How long of a piece do you need? Do you have a 72 safari with the same bathroom layout as mine? The piece is inexpensive but the shipping is high. I ended up paying about $24.00 total. They sent it in a huge cardboard tube.

Use double sided hem tape on the parts she cut. This will stop the fraying. Simple peel and stick and press.

Ours has a fold out shower curtain rod which has stood the test of time. I have to buy a standard shower curtain and cut it down to work height-wise but it sure beats using public showers no matter what

what composting toilet do you have? any problems? i'm going to get one hesitant as i am swayed by either nature's head or air head promo materials, depending on which i am reading.

thanks!

I used same track to install shower curtains in both trailers, but used a 3M tape to attach to ceiling. from Amazon.....3M Scotch 4910 VHB Tape: 1/2 in. x 15 ft. (Clear). Holding great.

I have a 71 Sovereign so it has the shower/tub in the back, on the side. I put in one of those curved shower rods for your home in but I hit it everytime I get out.

Hey CaCraig the bendable track I used should work great for your shower, here's a pic I found online that has a shower on the side using a similar track like mine.

72 Safari Wet Bath Shower Curtain setup

I just looked up on Amazon the track that MX468 used and it is cheaper with shipping than camping world and with Prime free 2 day delivery. Thank you for the info and I will try this. I have a shower curtain and links that are easy to install from Ikea info I got from a past thread here as well. Thank you Forum for always helping!!
Happy Trails!

thanks for the endorsement of nature's head. i've a 19' globie, and with your's being just a bit longer and vintage, i figure the similarities in our AS help simplify my decision. 90% sure nature's head, is as good as done!!!!!!

again, thanks!
