Hi, been reading the two ways people have added shower curtain rods for enclosing the shower and keeping the water off the toilet area.

Here is our solution with some simple PVC pipe parts and a required turning of 1/2 inch pipe to fit inside of the 3/4 " PVC pipe. We also added a full length of velcro sticky back to the wall (see Pics) and she sewed the velcro hooked type to the edge of the curtain. The velcro dots didn't hold with me in the shower.

I post pics here to show the general ideas. If there is interest in more details, I will give them in response to questions later. I have even thought about working up a kit of parts and selling it if there is interest? Not sure how complete the kit should be? Maybe just the turned pieces or all the way to a full setup.

The next pics are the rod and the parts I made to turn the corner. The small pieces have to be turned on a lathe to reduce the diameter to fit inside the 3/4 PVC. The 20 inch pipe above the door is replaced with a 24 inch piece.

Hi Lizbeth,

I replied the other day but have yet to see it?

Thanks for the comment, does the Boler have a shower.
The hook is from Lowes and the special parts are the 1/2 inch
PVC has the OD turned to fit inside the 3/4 inch PVC pipe.
Love the velcro.

Nope, no shower, or bathroom for that matter. Our next trailer will have a bath AND shower!

One can simplify this by taking a single piece of PVC pipe, filling it with sand and gently heating it to form the bend.

Or you could buy "Superb flexibility allows track to contour or arc along structural surfaces." Here: Beacon Fabric & Notions

I have a multi purpose shower/toilet. You are on it regardless and it's a great way to clean the toilet while you are at it.
