RV Windshield Drapes Using Shower Curtains, Take Two…

A few months ago, we improved a cheap rv decorating tip we’d already discovered for motorhome windshield curtains. To get up to speed and all of the details on how you can pull this off inexpensively, you can read Our First Detailed Article On RV Windshield Curtains.

In sum, we took down the icky motorhome drapes when we bought our Bounder and replaced them with shower curtains, which made them super cheap, clean and still gave us complete privacy because you can’t see through them.

But we wanted to “upgrade” because we didn’t like the blah color we had chosen as our back drop. Also, as my article stated, we went super cheap and kept the sharp upholstered curtain hooks on the rollers, merely squeezing them in place with pliers. Well this time, given those wheeled curtain carrier hooks are so affordable, we replaced the painfully pointy hooks we’d had at the same time.

So now we have chocolate brown shower curtains on the real rv curtain hooks. Here are some photos and easy instructions for you (again, the basics are in the first article, if needed). Didn’t “clean house” for these photos, so don’t look too hard (haha)…

Again, we liked the darker brown because if you’ve seen our redecorating photos on this blog, you know that the color runs throughout our motorhome. We even painted our living room floor brown and threw out the carpet! So this worked for us. Also, we didn’t like using the dangerous hooks from the original Bounder curtains that came with our rv. This time we used the right hooks…and they worked! Our carrier track came with ones that just had loops, no hooks. So we tossed all of them out and got the right kind. Make sure your shower curtains have METAL GROMMETS for durability, then simply put the hooks on the shower curtains and slide them on the track. See the hook in the photo below.

Finally, this time was even easier than my original article, when we started from scratch. We already had the exact sized panels we wanted, so we laid out the full length brown shower curtain (the new one), then laid the old tan one over it. We did this mainly for length because a few extra inches of width isn’t an issue when curtains are hanging up.

What we like most about these is that they don’t get damp or moist, they stay very clean and can be changed out anytime if they get worn or torn in anyway (or if you just want to change the color). If you have any questions, just leave us a comment!
