1978 Argosy Shower Curtain Question

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. Does anyone know exactly how the shower curtain functioned in this model? There are snaps on the exterior wall that would suggest that the original snapped to this wall which seems a bit awkward but would help keep water from splashing all over. The angles of it all just seem a bit off. My husband moved the shower curtain up just a little bit to clear the large mirror that is over the bathroom sink but I don't think that changed anything significantly. (Even before he moved it I think it would still be odd.)

I have a great tool that applies the type of snap that is used on the wall so I can add snaps to a shower curtain liner and see how that goes. Any thoughts?

Little update here. Kinda figured it out on my own and turned out pretty good! I'll post photos when we get a sunny day again AND she's not trashed with our other ongoing projects! (BTW, she is a she and her name is Buggy). Also glad to answer questions on my solution to the problem!

Glad you solved it. If it's anything like mine it's an awkward setup because the curtain needs to follow the curve of the trailer wall.
Looking forward to pictures.

My parents' '75 rear bath had snaps along the rear outside wall to keep water from splashing onto the toilet. The shower curtain, window shade, and the cover for
the cubby behind the toilet were made from heavy vinyl that could
have been Waltex (I'm not sure of the spelling) wall covering.

Shower snap

We have an 78 Argosy Minuet and, yes, the original shower curtain did have a snap on the outside wall to help follow the curve and help keep water inside the shower.
