If anyone has put a curtain rod in their trailer in the bed area - what have you used for a curtain rod going across in the 5, 19 or 21 to block off the bed area? Is it something that stays in place when the trailer is moving?
We like the wire curtain rods the best, but the bracket seems big? Thoughts?

I used a rod in my 19, a compression type you adjusted by unscrewing, stayed up. The 21 has the rod across the door.

never in doubt, often wrong

We use a tension rod in our 5.0 Classic...easy peasy. It has never fallen down or moved out of place.

We have used them in two trailers and a motorhome with good success, but you need flat parallel surfaces to install it between, and if you have anything hanging (such as curtains) hanging from it while moving you increase the chance that it will be pulled down.
