Casita privacy divider

I have a 2006 Casita Spirit Deluxe. I would like to put up a privacy curtain along the front edge of the main bed in the back.
I was thinking about installing a curtain rod between the wooden divider on the driver side wall and the top of the stovetop fan area on the passenger side.
Has anyone done something like this before?

I haven't, but I'd probably use an elastic cord that comes out of a reel on the divider side, and attaches to a hook on the stove side, and a /very/ light fabric curtain.

We have.
We installed a retractable wire clothesline to the side of the upper cabinet with a catch on the upper side of the closet. Good for a curtain or drying clothes.

Iíve done it using clamps on the cabinets and divider. I also had one in the hallway for the beds on the side. I used a carpet/drapery hook attached to a clamp and another clamp on the divider. Worked pretty well.

Biggest drawback is airflow. You lose that with these in place unless you are running the A/C.

Works Great!

I have used an expandable shower curtain rod and a twin sheet. Not only does it give you sleeping privacy but if move it more toward the front you have changing and shower privacy as well.

Hi- Am doing the same thing for our new to us Trillium 4500 so that there will be a privacy curtain in front of the bed. I decided it need not be floor length to do the job so I am making it ceiling to about three inches below the top of the cushions length. The shorter length removes the risk of the curtain blowing into the furnace. Am mounting a short retractable clothesline on the closet side and using very light weight non see through material (think polyester shower curtain weight. A catch hook will be on the other side (kitchen side). Our purpose for this was two fold: sleeping privacy as well as porta potty use privacy.

The only reason I think I'd put that up in my 17'Casita would be because my husband usually gets up an hour or so before I do, and hesitates to use a light to get dressed because he doesn't want to disturb my sleep.

But considering the close quarters, that's pert near impossible.

JerryBob, The reasons anyone would want one is none of my business business but perhaps others can chime in as well to help you understand what you are wondering about, particularly in reference to your two questions, and I quote "I mean how much privacy do you really get? Whatcha hiding??

Yes it is a small space but privacy curtains create visual barriers which could be useful for hiding a few activities from other's eyes. And also remember some people are more modest than others for many reasons. Modest people along with people who have been sexually and/or otherwise physically abused often need more privacy with regards to their bodies as do some folks with poor self body image. It's just a matter of those folks giving themselves the privacy they need for their comfort. The whys don't matter, do they? We often have doors on bathrooms and bedrooms for privacy reasons and don't ask why.

Let me get you started however with a few scenarios: Someone may want to hide their toilet activities from a possible guest for either their own comfort or that of their guest or both. Someone may want to, out of sheer politeness, lessen the effects of a light should they be part of a couple and one might be up earlier than the other. Some might enjoy the coziness of having their bed area closed off. Some may want a private dressing area, especially if there are children. Hope that gets you started on why someone would want or need a privacy curtain...

Privacy and Casita, are not two words I usually think of at the same time...

Thanks for the response......I can see I hit on a subject you feel very passionate about......certainly not trying to offend anyone here. My point.....these trailers are very small......hanging a curtain doesn't provide much privacy as I and others have indicated. In the sad case of abuse.....if I was camping with someone like that.....I would personally leave the trailer and give them the whole space.....but that's me. Again......thanks for your reply......no need to be condensending.....this is a discusssion. Safe travels.

I have a 21 ft Bigfoot rear bed. It has a curtain that wraps across the end of the bed (with that lopped off corner). I travel by myself, no good reason to ever use it. I suppose if someone were sleeping on the dinette it might be good to separate the areas, but I'm not really seeing much privacy in a trailer that small. I will NEVER have someone sleeping on the dinette, my pickup is a standard cab, Its only got room for me and one passenger.

a standard cab pickup should be able to handle 3-wide in a pinch, unless it has bucket seats. I know I can do 3 wide in my f250 cab-n-a-half, by folding up the big arm rest. I've gone a 6-7 hour day with 5 passengers in the half cab, 3 in front, 2 in back, and in theory I can carry 6 (but that half back seat is brutal 3 wide)
