Shower curtain for '68 Safari

Tin Hut and Creampuff,

Thank you for the information. Is there any way that either of you could post a picture of the curtain support? And, is there a way that I could bribe you into making a pattern for me Tin Hut? Newspaper taped together is a fine media for it, and I will gladly pay the postage. And, where do I buy the tabs for the rod, or the rod for that matter? Is that something that Airstream would still have in stock? We have a few holes in the plastic to show where the original rod was attached. My DH will repair them, and then we can start from scratch, once we know what to use.

Can you tell how new we are at this?

Tom and Sally

Scroll down in this thread to see the pics and detail of the curtain. I'll get you a shot of the ceiling guiderail which is about a 1/2 in wide channel for the tab head to run in. Not sure where you'll find similar. Velcro might be a suitable option for you . You could place about 6-8 one inch strips on the ceiling and some on the curtain to match. I'm assuming your set-up is the same as my '67.

creampuff,
If you go to:
www.go-rv.com
Then, type in a state's name...look for a dealer(almost any will do) and then go to page 195.
you should be able to find the curtain guides you need..
ciao

Here's a picture from the floor level. You should see rivit holes where your track used to be.

Right on 53FC. The tabs are a few pages back. not sure if that ceiling track is small enough as they don't give dimensions and it only comes in wht or brwn. not mill finish.

shower curtain

I have a vinyl covered accordian type shower curtain that has some snaps on it. It is split in one section and is a bit faded. I want to stick to originalish features when possible, but am looking for opinions/suggestions on my thoughts......Should I try to remake a replica, or maybe it would look even cooler if I had a stainless curved shower bar and made a curtain with a weighted bottom.....Hmmmm
Bathroom in now stripped and in the fiberglass repair/gel-coat process....

Depends on what you want...

Amy, It really boils down to what you want. The vinyl accordian type is what I too have on my shower for a surround. If original look is what you want then start looking for a vinyl material that will somewhat match your bathroom color (you may not find anything exactly like your current color). Or perhaps you want to update your trailer sightly to give you a better fit for your own style and better performance than the old technology that thought up the original shower surround accordian that you have now. Either way it is what you decide to go with that will influence what you place in the shower area. You could even get creative and use some of the new top track that is used for shower curtains on old/new clawfoot tubs that now have been modified to use a shower with and mount that to hang a regular shower curtain from. It Is really what you want and are willing to try in your trailer as to what you choose. Ed

Made My Own _ Works WEll!!!!!!!


Not having anything other than pictures on this sight to look at, I decided to make my own. I guessed the approximate width of each folding panel and went for it. I used a corrugated plastic panel(normally used for signage), a vinyl shower curtain(for inside), And a nylon shower curtain(for the outside). Not wanting to be too windy I'll stop here and just attach pics. BTW I have a'68 safari.

papademojo, I love what you've done with the shower curtain. The red tub is great too - did you refinish it yourself or have it done? Really makes me curious to see more of your Safari (hint, hint).

Thanks, I finished it myself. I used POR-15 marine paint. It cures with humidity, so it's best if you paint on low humidity days.

I know this is a late response but TY for this post... we have 68 Safari w/same shower curtain... orig... but it needs replacing & I wasn't sure how I was going to do it any chance you took the sink out? I want to take ours out & build a counter top w/a small bowl sink.
