Jim looking at the eggcamper site it looks like you have two chooses for mounting the hardware. One you could attach the curtain holders to the window frame directly and make the curtains with grommets which allows you to have a bit more of a header on them so the top part of the window frame is covered or you could you an extension like Donna's photo. I personally perfer using grommets or rings as I find them easier to open & close than pocket curtains. Or you could mount the curtain rod holders hanging down from the fiberglass overhead bins - that way you would not be going through the outside of the trailer. I seem to recall having seen photos here at one time or another of it having been done that way.

I was referred to this thread by DonnaD (of course) in another thread. My Burro had instructions involving a combination of the aluminum window frame and short screws through the inner shell (only) to hang curtain rod brackets. Less work were some little hooks that a previous owner attached with short screws to the inner shell that took stretchy curtain cords instead of rods. I haven't put all of that back together yet, but now I have a couple of options to work with. Of course just gluing the rod brackets up with fiberglass epoxy is another option.

My idea would be to treat the windows nicely.

I like the black out idea... I have a front kitchen Surfside so I want the curtains to go all the around the U-shaped seating area non-stop. Found some flexible plastic track but still have details to work out. pics too come as I get into it but I'm going for a kind of Airstream look
