Tension rods for curtains

Needed a way to hang curtains-this is what we did.
Tensions rods and Command Hooks work great.
The front rod rest on the side rods.
They stay in place but just to make sure-tied the rods to the Command Hook so it will stay during travel.
No drilling needed.

Can you post some close up photos of where the rods meet the hooks so we can see how they're attached?

This would not work well on a Scamp with rat fur. I would imagine that the bare fiberglass walls in your trailer get cold and hot during the day

I don't think any of us expect total comfort traveling around in a 13 foot long fiberglass "egg". The trick is to camp during the comfortable months and stay at cheap hotels/motels in the middle of the summer/winter! There's little room to install a decent climate control unit in our trailers, and NONE of us wants to be cooped up in one for long anyway. Just a place to sleep, stay dry, and cook a bit.

Will post more pics tomorrow.
We have a small window a/c for those extra hots days and use a small electric heater for cold nights.
If weather is bearable, we don't use either one but sometimes just want to be comfortable
No rat fur on walls. Think our Campster was made without any insulation on the walls.
Makes for easy attachment of hooks in the kitchen and also in the dining/living room!
I have used several kinds of adhesive hooks and only the Command hooks have held through heat and cold.

Another great idea that may work for others in the same condition!

If you're willing to remove a screw or two around a window, I thought this was a good idea:

Here is the picture with the Command hook and tied to the tension rod.
I used a black tie so you could see how it is tied.
I usually use a clear twist tie.
We like this set up with tension rods-we can slide the curtains from one end of the area to the other. The walls are covered with the curtain just not the windows.
Looks neat.
