The hangers I found at Walmart in the garden center taken over by the
christmas barrage.

My wife bought the table spread so it's either from Walmart, Kmart, or
Target. And it could have been from Kohl's. She goes there once in a great
while. I wasn't with her when she picked these up. She put this one on
the kitchen table in the house.

Thanks Rosemary. I may end up seeking out some help.
But I may try safety pins first to get the lengths the way I want and then
drag out the wife's machine if I can find it. I used to be the sewing machine
mechanic when La-Z-Boy came to this area. I may be able to do some simple
stitching and if not, I can rip it out and seek seasoned help.......LOL

Wife told me to get the valances off the kitchen table......lol
I took them out and hung them up. I've got my lengths pretty
much figured out. I'm taken the advice, I took all of them down
and brought them back in. They're in the washing machine now.
So maybe in the next day or so I'll have them pinned, glued, or
sewn and back up.

I like the valance! I took the 'bedroom' curtains down for better AC circulation this summer and haven't put them back. Now I've put curtains everywhere (over the couch, over the console, and in the kitchen), just a boring ivory color, with the (Ikea) brackets screwed into the wood except for the bedroom windows where I got some smaller brackets from Walmart and screwed them into the FG. They weren't up yet when these pics were taken. Oops, just realized I don't have the option to post pics from a folder. How do I do that?

When you reply hit the "Go Advanced" button.
Then hit the "paper clip" and a board will come up.
There you can find photos on your computer. I seem
to only be able to do two at a time. Then hit upload.
After it finishes uploading I hit the paperclip again.
The window disappears and I hit the paperclip again.
Then you click on your photo number or on "insert all"
You can then hit preview and add posts before you hit post.

We took ours down for the same reason.
We also run a fan on the countertop to blow A/C into the bed area.
I'm thinking I will also have to figure a way to attach to the fiberglass.
I've bought some special type hangers but now I forget where I put them.

Here's what one of the other owners did for hers.
Really looks sharp.

It is scary to screw into the FG. Nicholas assured me it was fine, but like I posted over on the Lil Snoozy owners' site, my shell, like yours, seems pretty thin. I'm pretty sure it's not a full 3/8" in some spots and the builders went through with their screws in one or two spots. I was reading that Smoak told someone to remove screws, dip in Liquid Nails, and rescrew them, as well as to use Liquid Nails on the back of his cabinets which were pulling loose from the wall.

I try to do like Denny suggested and shim things out before attaching with screws.
I remember reading one of the first owners had their cabinets come loose and Alan
told him to use liquid nails. When I visited the factory I noticed they now use a long
stainless steel screw from the outside to hold the kitchen cabinet in place.

OK, here goes my attempt to upload curtain pictures. I bought one pair of extremely long curtains and made all the curtains from that - the over-the-couch ones got the pleats. I added black-out fabric lining too.

I don't know when they started that, probably right after they got
complaints about the cabinet pulling loose.

I like that rod you put over the couch. That's the style I was looking
for but have never been able to find it around here. I like the way we
can have the same trailer yet make them all different.

Edit: I notice you also have that all necessary tool.........the flyswatter.....LOL

Test privacy curtain

After washing the curtains I safety pinned them together
just to get the length where I need it to be.

This is that same set stretched out.
It's almost, (almost) long enough by it self.....lol
I now know the only way I can match the patterns is to
sew the bottom panels together and then sew the valance
to the larger (after sewn) panel. I didn't mess with the
other panel now that I kinda know what I need to do......lol
