Title: curtain hangers
Post by: ShreddinPB on January 21, 2020, 05:24:31 PM
Hey guys, I have a 2003 minnie 27'.
The cab over has little gutter like things for hanging curtains, Id like to find the items that go in there so I can add curtains to the windows in the cab over. Does anyone know what goes in them?

Hard to tell what you need. Post a picture of the cross section.

Camping World used to have a good selection of various curtain hangers in their catalog. I haven't seen a CW catalog in years, but you could try there.

I think I have the same or similar kind of curtain "track" that held the privacy curtains for the bunk beds in my trailer. Kinda hard to tell from photos if they exactly the same or not.  I removed the bunks, but still wanted to hang a curtain from the ceiling in order to partition what is now my storage area, from the living quarters of the trailer.

This is gonna be difficult to describe but . . . there is a clear plastic strip about 3/8 or 1/2 inch wide that is sewn to the curtain edge.  That plastic strip has  attached to it small plastic nubs, or pieces that are shaped to fit into the groove.  You fit the plastic into the groove starting at one end - you'll have to remove the screw at one end of the track and slide them on.  The strip is concealed and makes for a very clean hanging installation.  I simply removed the strip from the old curtain, and had it sewn to the curtain I wanted to use, but if I wanted/needed more of it, I'd call my trailer manufacturer.  So maybe contact Winne. and speak to the parts people.  You can see the plastic strip sewn on with black thread, with the plastic nubs attached to it sliding in the curtain track in the pics below.

Check out Sailright - they sell material, all kinds of canvas fasteners, curtain parts, etc., etc.  Always include looking at marine stuff when shopping.

There are literally dozens of types of hanger tracks and hardware and we can't tell which you have in those photos.  There are good selections online, though. Here are some sources:

Damn, I thought winnebago would use the same style on their RVs.
Will remove one to get a side view of them.
Otherwise I just have to but new rails also.
