Carla, we are using a 1/2" grommet. That might be a little big. We don't have the trailer yet. We are basing our selection on a picture we took when at ETI.

Thanks for the grommet size. It's always a challenge to do these things when you don't have the Escape close by. When do you pick up your 21'?

Our build starts this week, the 17th! We plan to pick it up on December 28th provided the weather cooperates.

I'm planning to make a new curtain to match our 21's dinette seats. (I have plenty of left over fabric and would love for there to be more of it in the trailer.) I agree the ETI provided curtain is great, so I will store it to keep it looking nice. When the day eventually comes that our Escape is rehomed, the original curtain can be put back into place.

It's a good point that the ETI curtain fabric is soft, allowing the curtain to pull back out of the way; my upholstery fabric is stiffer, and I do plan to line it, too... Obviously I will need to choose carefully on the lining.

What I plan to do is get rid of that curtain completely and put one on the window. I don't see any reason to have a big curtain that will just get in my way (knowing me) and I won't need it for privacy since I'll be by myself more often than not when I use it. And if Dirk is with me, he's not gonna be going outside if I'm still asleep.

I'll use some of the excess cushion fabric, which is dark (custom ordered) and line it so it's even darker to block out more of the sunlight (yeah, I don't rise with the dawn). I plan to use the same fabric for a cover over the vent. Gotta coordinate, you know!

Lindy replaced the curtain that ETI provided with one made from the excess upholstery material. It is long enough and wide enough to cover the cubbies, and if we wish we can pull it in front of the door to block any light coming in the window. I like ir especially since it doesn't bunch up when pulled back. It was very hard to leave the bathroom door open at night if the curtain was bunched. And if the bathroom door closed at night, it could get pretty chilly in there on a cold night.

another reason to install an electric wall heater under your bed in that corner, it keeps the bath warm, even with the door closed.
