I have a 13' 2011 model Scamp
. I have looked at the photos of some Bolers and find that the curtain rods are similar however, the rod supports seem to be attached to a block of wood and then to the fiberglass body.
I, too, wanted to change the curtain rods and the whole curtain hanging system in my new Scamp
. The builders assured me that I could change it all out after I brought my trailer home. What they did not tell me is that the curtain rod supports are permanently riveted into the fiberglass frame. They are not screwed in as are home-installed curtains. As a result I decided to work with the rods as they were installed. I have, however, found several work-arounds as follows.
1. I prefer black rods and supports rather than the brass-colored ones. In my research I found no black rods or supports to purchase. I do not think it would be effective to hand or spray paint
the brass ones as the paint
would chip and wear off ending up being more ugly than the brass! I decided to stick with the brass. I can live with it.
2. The factory-installed rods often "jumped" off the supports when under way. I bought "cafe curtain rods" (at Walmart) to replace the factory-installed ones. Because the new rods are a bit wider and have finials on the ends they stay in place better. I must mention that the new rods were cheaply made and the finial ends come off easily. I don't think this would be a problem for home use but with the rattling of the trailer when under way they sometimes come off. A bit of metal glue should keep them in place.
3. I use the factory-installed rods, which are slim without a finial, for hanging and rolling my custom thermal/blackout shades. (see photo) I place the rod above
the rod supports. It is easy to manually roll and unroll the "shades" as I need them. I sewed Velcro to the bottom edge so as to attach the shade to the "rat fur" (carpet type covering on the walls and ceiling).
4. As you can see in the photos I have kept the factory-installed cream-colored curtains and placed custom side panels on the rods. By doing so I can maintain the light
coming through the curtains, maintain privacy and
customize my decor without using a lot of print fabric which could overwhelm the small interior.
5. I made tie-backs that are attached with Velcro to the "rat fur".
6. When I use my tropical theme I am thinking of taking out the creme curtains and hanging bamboo shades horizontally, like my black out shades.
I'm very happy with the custom curtain modifications I have made and fully expect to come up with more window covering ideas as time goes by. I would love to hear more about your planned window project.
