Ross: Well now, that would be a design screw-up.

Quit throwing this common sense stuff into the mix, it only screws up my misguided thinking.....

And a second mould would be costly.

I'm curious about the need for this curtain in the 21. Are people really hanging around outside the door just to get a glimpse of someone asleep in bed?

Karen, It makes that corner a little darker. But quite honestly, we have forgotten to close it a few times and we didn't notice until morning. The bathroom blocks any direct outside light. If/when it wears out, my vote would be to not replace.

We pull it across the door whenever one of us is inside changing or anything else we want privacy for. That way someone wanting to come in knows to wait or give fair warning....probably not a bad idea for all the models.
We had enough of flashing our neighbors when we had our teardrop

We used the curtain in lieu of the screen door when the bugs were not too bad, going in and out without opening/closing the screen door was a lot easier, particularly when you had items in your hands.

I too am curious about this. Not having slept in a 21, I can only guess. If you had people sleeping on your dinette, you might have some that want that privacy from each other.

I know in our temp trailer, it has a curtain across opening to the loft, and my wife like to pull it when others are sleeping in the trailer, but that is likely only 10-12 nights this year. They do pull right out of the way behind a cabinet when not in use.

I am old enough now that I could care less. If someone really wants a look, go right ahead.

Not nearly a big enough space back there.
