Would love to see you window coverings(renos)

We have been renovating our bigfoot 5th wheel (1987) for quite some time now. (Life was just too busy) Now that we are forced to stay in our province due to Covid we have been advancing more.

All the windows have been taken apart, painted the frames and re installed with new seals and butal tape. I would love to see some pictures of your interior window covers... blinds, curtains, shades, valances.. etc. It will help me decide what direction to go.

Thanks for your feedback.

We are very happy with the Sailrite aluminum curtain tracks we installed; we used the sew-on tab tape which provides nylon balls to run in the track. For mounting, we replaced existing window screws with flat head screws to mount them. Look for Rob and Linda's entry in the Casita Club link here: Curtains In The Casita - The Casita Club Forum - The Casita Club Forums

Thanks. I checked out the site and actually liked their fabric calculator. Will be using that for when I make my cushions. We do not have any curtain rods or brackets yet either.

ID:	135260 For the rectangular windows we went with roller blinds to block out light. Got them from Costco Online. They are great quality and we love them! 19’ 1989 Bigfoot.

I'm using RecPro RV Pleated Blind Shades. What I love about this particular brand of RV blinds is its capacity to provide instant privacy. Another noteworthy feature of this RV blind is its resistance to ultraviolet rays. For me, it is very important that the color of the blinds does not fade easily. This is to maintain the quality of the color from aging quickly. That's great!

I LOVE creating window coverings for our 13' SCAMP! I just refined my roll-up black-out shades and plan to post photos soon. If you run a "Search" above on this forum entering "window coverings Gilda" you will find some of my previous postings. Basically, I like the curtains that came with the SCAMP and I make narrow panels that hang on the outside edge of the curtain rod. I make matching/coordinating pillows and sometimes add embellishments such as pennants. I like to coordinate the decor to our trip. The one in this photo shows autumn leaves on the panels and hiking boots on the pillow covers. While the pockets on the curtains look handy, I removed them because they were just bothersome while sleeping. And, of course, I always have a stuffed animal friend or two join me on our trips. Feel free to PM (private message) me to discuss ideas.

Very nice window coverings/roll-up shades! It appears that the side (shorter) window shade has a bar in the bottom but I can't tell if there is a bar in the longer shades. I have found that metal tent bars or curtain rods work quite well as they stay straight and don't bend whereas a plastic tube or wooden dowel do not stay straight. A simple, hand-held pipe cutter works well to cut the metal bars or rods.

I'm using a cordless roller shade. I'm really happy with these shades. I love it because of its simple look and the ease of cleaning it. These roller shades help to get that beautiful daylight, yet there is no direct sun to harm my hanging plants. It's a more modern look. Overall, these are good shades for the price and I recommend them!
