    Curtains in an A class



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    I know some people see curtains as old fashioned in a motorhome, especially when blinds are so convenient, but
    We have blinds on all windows, even in the large cab area of our A class, the cab windows have black out blinds that work bottom to top of the side windows, and the front screen has an alloy electric roller blind that works top to bottom.

    The problem is they black out the cab area very well indeed, and if/when we want to have breakfast but still see the view or get some natural light in, we almost become "goldfish in a bowl".

    So a few months back we had some net curtains made to cover the main windscreen. I spent a few days trying out different designs of how the curtains would be fixed either to the overcab drop down bed or the top of the windscreen. My main worry was where would they go during the driving.

    Eventually I came up with this:

    I bought two large hair grips, screwed to the pillar, which were used to hold the curtains back whilst travelling, I was not completely happy with only that, because the curtains would swing back and forth, so I bought two seat belt pads which have a Velcro fitting, these still are clamped into the hair grips but eliminate swing.


    One of the photos was an idea of my good lady who bought a pack of napkin holders as tie backs for the side net curtains, it adds a bit of class I think.

    There was a guy on here a few years ago, had a Hymer & also a boat. I'm sure he had some sort of one way net curtain thingy that you could buy for the front screen.

    I seem to remember simplyloco cobbled something together a year or 2 ago. Not a member now, spit the dummy out about something and left the forum.
    The most important thing is to enjoy your life - to be happy - its all that matters.

    Wintonian had a one way curtain arrangement, for the life of me I can't remember the specifics but he was certainly pleased with it.
    I like the hair grip arrangement though!
    Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false and by rulers as useful.
