wrap around curtains started

I've had this idea for a few years and am finally getting around to it. I want curtains that go around the sides and back - non-stop. My trailer is a front kitchen so there's a u-shaped booth like seating that folds down to a queen bed I was thinking the curtain wrapping around like the seating was the way to go.
The rod is in and the fabric will be a couple of weeks yet. more pic coming when it's done.

Robert Johans did that on one of the first posted builds on here several years ago with Ikea material and it really looked cool the way that he did it.

I used the off-the-shelf track and carriers from IKEA for a wrap around track in the front of my Hunter Compact-II. They have 90 degree curves as well as straights.

TIP: After putting the track up, slide the carriers into the track and be sure they go through the curves and joints smoothly. I had to buy two packs of carriers to get enough good ones, and then took all the bad ones back....

I've been looking at doing something similar. My thoughts are to use 3 tracks with an overlap in the corners. That way when the curtains are open they can fit in the corners with less bunching.

Multiple tracks might be a problem as the corner curves will have to have two different radaii. I used a continuous track so I can put the curtains anywhere I want. There is a total of 6 panels.

I really like the "lounge" look of the wrap around curtains. Would be great around a U-shaped dinette.
