As to Carol's comment about using Scotch Gard...it is rare that I wash my curtains. In fact, I never have in the 3 years I've owned the trailer. Personally, I do not Scotch Gard my curtains either as the moisture in the trailer can be easily dried.

When we had our living room furniture re-upholstered, the craftsman who did it advised never to use ScotchGuard.

Glenn,did they say why? ??? I have used Scotch Guard on my camper cushions and have always been pleased with it.

I don't recall exactly. I think it had to do with how it made dirt that did get into it that much harder to remove. Given that I paid over $3,000 to have two love seats and an armchair re-upholstered at a quality shop, and that the owner had been in the business for some 40 years ( European craftsman ), I tend to believe him.
We could have bought a whole living room set of "leather" ( and foam and cardboard and staples ) for half the price, but we liked what we had and have had for 20 years.

I like to start out each camping year with a nice clean fresh trailer so the curtains go into the wash. One of the other plus points of lining them is that the fabric doesnt break down from the sun so you can wash them without worrying about them falling apart.

Scamp Curtains

My daughter and I made curtains out of a long valence given to me from a friend. They are self- lined in the same fabric. Because each panel cut was finished from top to bottom, we folded and sewed a small pocket on top to form the header of the curtain and slide the existing rods thru. We finished with tabs which I tacked to the curtains.
