Unhappy Shower Curtain or Shower Door for 1972?

The bathroom renovation continues....

My Airstream doesn't have a shower curtain or door at this time. I'm curious what others are doing for this. I noticed Sneakinup put up a curtain with a track mounted on the ceiling but I'm not sure I want to go this route.

Mike,
On our 1976 Overlander we went with a curtain.

VA, How are you hanging our curtain?

Rod or track? How did you mount that?

I'm going to assume you've got a rear bath. I can't give any advice on the center bath. If so:

I would second Abe's suggestion that a curtain is a better arrangement. We have the original door on our '72 and it doesn't work very well at keeping the water in the shower. On our '78 the door was missing so we replaced it with a shower curtain. It attaches to the ceiling via a rod.

On our '78 we have 3 extra hooks stuck onto the plastic around the front of the shower. We unhitch the shower curtain hangers from the rod and attach them to the appropriately spaced hooks. That keeps water from splashing out onto the sink area. Again, the '78 has a little different arrangement than the '72, but you could do the same sort of thing.

My shower curtain track is mounted to the upper cabinetry. I didn't want to drill in to the ceiling since it was in such good condition. I used the bottom track from the front window curtains to fashion a track for the shower curtain hooks. It works pretty well.

Sneakinup, How did you get that curtain track...

to stay suspended around the bend? I see where you attached the ends but keeping it up in the middle has me stumped.

We went with a curtain also. I used a tension shower rod and it works great. They have three different lengths at wal-mart. One end is on the rear tub wall and the other over the mirror at the front of the tub.

We have a 'new' curtain in the original ceiling track. I cut a store bought one to fit the curve at the ceiling.

You can see it on the bottom part of our "Draperies" webpage

This may not be much help to you, but our original door works great. I don't know what questions you may have, but I'm willing to try to answer them.

Here's my final solution. First we tried a regular curtain rod but were not happy with it.

This final solution keeps the water fully contained.

That looks great Mike! How did you bend the track. That is the I channel for curtains isn't it? Great job

Hi Anthony. The I-beam track is an 8-foot bendable track made by RECMAR. I bought it online.

No, I won't be able to make the Rally this year, but we are planning on attending next year. We'll be bringing
the "new" 58 Overlander.
