Safari 72 wet bath question

Does anyone have any pics of their 1972 wet bath with the curtain snapped on the bathroom door and wall? Was there a curtain that went across the entry wall? Thanks.

our 72 did not have any snaps but it does sound like a good idea. Just a sliding pocket door.

Mine had the original curtain with the holes at top for the curtain track and the snaps down the sides. I didn't like it and replaced it with a normal shower curtain.

Hi Cameront do you have any pics of your setup that you could post or email me? Thanks. Balu1197@cox.net

Unfortunately I don't. I no longer have my '72, otherwise I'd be happy to take some photos for you. But the top track was the same aluminum track used for the curtains on the windows at the front of the trailer. It also used the little nylon wheeled curtain hooks that ran along the track. I simply hung a fabric water curtain own this and it worked very well.

I have the 1970 with a wet side/corner bath ,... I don't like my sliding bifold door but haven't found an alternative that I like yet .... inside the door are snaps for a curtain along the top and down the opening side .... I found that bought a plastic curtain ...cut it in 1/2 ....mounted snaps on the top and the opening side and it works great for showers ....it snaps back into the corner when not in use .... I found I didn't need more than 2-3 along the top and 1-2 on the side.
Also after a year or so I threw it out and used the other 1/2 for a new one...

72 wet bath

I just bought my 72 and just now fixing it up. I don't understand why Airstream engineers designed a giant picture window in the bathroom! I plan on putting privacy film on the entire window. I visit that room too often to fight with those hard to close curtains!

I wouldn't put film on it. Often the view from the back of the trailer can be pretty nice. It was originally fit with a roller blind for privacy. Putting film on it eliminates the option of enjoying the view.

My 71 Tradewinds has an accordion door, which is still in good shape. When towing I can have a straight shot from my rear view mirror out the bathroom window.

I had the darkest tinted house film installed on all my windows and then installed mini blinds too.

Works great can see out during the day and no one can see in until night and then its hard to see in. But thats what the mini blinds are for.

BTW they work great to direct air flow when using the power vents with the windows open.

I took the curtain track off mine today, but didn't get a picture of it. There were a few snaps on the walls, too. No curtain, and it looks like it's been a while since the bathroom had been used.
