Hi Guys

I am in the process of making my new curtains, i am am looking at different ways to attach them. I would love some input on what people used to attach their curtains. I would like an easy, but solid way to attach them.

Pictures or links would be a great help.

Soooooo what you do, or buy or make to overcome this?

thanks for your thoughts

Graeme

I just finished some curtains for the Trill. I hung them on the rods that were already mounted, and put velcro on the bottom of the window frames to hold them in close. I had thought about miniblinds, and considered making roman shades, but instead devised a roll-up method for a simple, clean look during the day. The curtains have a flap in the back, with more velcro, that holds the roll in place. Snug at night, airy and out-of-the-way during the day.

Graeme,
What is on the walls of your egg--ensolite, rat fur or smooth surface?

I have ensolite on the walls, I was going to go with the snaps on a track idea, I like the Velcro for the bottom though, it would keep all the peeping toms from peeping.... lol

I used a standard curtain rod and then bolted the rod holders to the Boler with stainless bolts. Drill your hole the same size as the bolt and then snugly tighten. There should be no water leakage.

To pull the rod in at the centre of the window I fashioned a rod holder from 12 gauge primary wire and a 12 gauge terminal ring. I bolted this to the Boler in the same fashion as above.

Our Scamp already had curtain rod holders attached but I have used drapery hooks to attach small framed pictures to the walls. I don't know it that would work for holding curtain rods but I thought I'd pass it along anyway. The hole in the ensolite closes up when you remove the hooks, so if you make a mistake, no problem.

We've got a wooden support below the window for both the table and front bunk. We've added a second curtain rod to the bottom with one clip screwed to the wood pulling the rod toward the window following the curve. It keeps the curtains parallel to the window and it keeps the curtains under tension and from bouncing around and off while towing.

I sure hope you have either a buyout or a black tank for those dozen beers at the end of your lease ...

This is one occasion where I would not be looking for a deal at the end of someone elses lease

You are welcome Graeme,
Sorry but I just could not resist the humour in the typo.
