Need new Curtains for our 2014 Flying Cloud 27FB

We have a 2014 Flying Cloud 27FBT that we purchased used from Southland RV, the airstream dealer in Atlanta in 2017.

It has the original curtains in the front and back and I tried looking on-line and on this forum and all the suggestions are not in business anymore or are not taking orders at this time.

I did see a post that suggested calling Airstream, but back in 2017 they got a price of $2600. Airstream Supply has some new curtains for sale, but they say 2021 model year and newer. They were $1325 for a set of front and rear, but only for 2021 or newer models.


Anyone have a good resource for getting new curtains.

I just got an e-mail from Airstream Supply that they're now selling curtains in four(?) or 6 different fabrics.
Take a look.

Last year I had the following lady, who only makes curtains for Airstream and Argosy trailers make a set for my '06 Classic. For $60 extra she added insulated backing material. What a difference that makes. They sure don't look cheap like the originals. I think the price was $760 for 17 panels. It took her a while, but she fixes comebacks without question. Send her your old ones for patterns. I would also send her all the length and width measurement so she can cross check the sizes with her measurements.

Amen on Beverly. Excellent quality, but she should charge more. We sent a bonus.

Boy, is this ever a business opportunity for someone i.e. a pop-up vendor at the International would make a fortune off the pent-up demand I think is out there for new curtains for any year model Airstream!

I had a local lady make new curtains using JC Penny blackout drapes (for the fabric only). They lasted really well and I actually sold them on this site to another owner for about half what I paid. Now I’m going to try it myself. I still have the original off-set tracks but I’m going to try a different product from SAILRITE.com which is a flexible wall-mount track with snap carriers. Since this will only be for the panoramic windows which don’t open, I don’t need the off-set functionality. I like the idea of being able to “unsnap” my curtains to launder them, rather than the tedious tab&elastic original system of the 80’s. I also plan to do aluminum mini blinds and make my own cornice boxes (there is an old thread on that) for the other windows since I prefer the functionality of the mini blinds. Also there is a new tool on the market to pattern the curved walls for making the back side of the cornice box.
