Source for Curtain Tracks

Does anyone know of a source for curtain tracks and curtain hangers of the type in the pictures attached? I'm changing the window coverings in an '84 Bigfoot 5th Wheel. Those pictured are the ones that came with the unit. I'd like to replace one track that is a little wonky and get some new ones to install in the kitchen/dining area.

There is a shop in Riverside, CA called the Recovery Room that seems to do a lot of restoration and updating. When I needed similar parts for older motorhomes they always had rolls of what I needed. Here's their location and website:

I have never seen a track like that. You may have to change them out to another type and use a hook with them. If you go to any drapery or blind shop they should be able to help find something that works with your track.

Try checking at IKEA also. I think their tracks hang from the ceiling, but they might also work with a wall mount.

That looks like Taco <sp> product.
West marine keeps their catalog for special orders. RV shops may as well.
It's a nice aluminum extrusion that will take some bend and remain useable there are a variety of hangers available to fit in the channel and see or hook onto the curtain

Very elegant solution to hanging curtains

Thanks, Denece. I found something in their online catalog that looks promising.

Wow, Jen B, that is an awesome resource! That is exactly the stuff I was talking about! I've used the aluminum rail and sew on slides. Not too hard to do. Great results! Just make sure you can anchor the rail securely.
