Where did you get your roller shades? I've been looking for some, but haven't found any that were affordable.

She got them from selectblinds.com. They gave her a coupon with the samples she ordered and they ship free and do buy three get one free. I'm not sure of our total cost but I don't think it was more than 160 for six shades.

If we had to do it again we would get them with the pull chain instead of the cordless. The cordless look really clean but are very finicky to operate.

I made my own roller shades with a kit from JoAnn fabrics online. It comes with a heavy fusible interfacing that you iron on to your choice of cloth, so my roller blind matches the rest of my drapes and my accordion doors.

Show me your curtains in your vintage Airstream

Greetings AWvintage69!

As a transition year, your Overlander may have one or more types of drapery carriers/hanger tabs. Among the possibilities:Another option that might have the curtain/drapery hardware that you need is a local store that carries Kirsch drapery hardware. Kirsch has a number of similar carriers and tabs in their catalog.

Good luck with your Overlander!

Kevin

P.S.: If a previous owner removed the original drapery "rods" . . . similar hardware can still be purchased through Airstream dealers or Airstream restoration hardware resources . . . the curved pieces for the front windows may be more difficult to find.
