ID:	86731Hello I am new member long time reader of the forms. My nick name is canyon rafter.
I have a 82 Fiber Stream that I acuried about 20 years ago. I have gutted the inside and am now restoring. I am sure I will have lots of fun doing this project!
Right now I am looking for a flexable shower curtain track but have had little luck so far. Does anyone out there have a lead on where to buy such a creature? The big time RV dealers parts departments so far have some posable solutions but they really do not have a flexable track, they have something that i might be able to heat up with a heat gun and bend but nothing that is really flexable.
Any Help out there?
Thanks
Canyon Rafter

I made mine from a piece of chromed steel bar, I welded attachment parts to the ends after I had bent the rod to the shape I wanted leaving about enough clearance for curtain rings to move freely. I went from the top of the window frame to the door frame with my rod, works great.

Sometimes it is easier to fabricate rather than locate

I have to agree with fabracation sometimes being the best solution when a restoration is in process but I am already fabricating everything inside this Fiber Stream. If I cannot find something that will work then fabrication is the answer.Can you post a picture of your homemade curtain track? We all love pictures because as we all know - A picture is worth a thousnd words!

Mine may not be the factory original, but it consists of old style curtain I beam and hangers. Works just fine.

I would certainly pay for shipping if you are willing to ship the original curtain track! Mine got broken as it was being stored until remodel happened. I like the way it fits and works. If I find that I don't like this one I will make or find another track. Thank you for your generosity!

unless you live in Lake Helen Florida, you should not be looking for a package from me. I sent it out to the person who PM'd me and paid the shipping with paypal.

Try this source: Curtain Tracks & Drapery Track Systems | Curtain-Tracks.com

I have a post from several months ago with shower track pictures under the Oliver thread. It is called "Oliver Shower Curtain".
