Very, very nice and it certainly gives off a warm vibe! But I don't get where the printed fabric is when everything is tucked away (first pic). Are there two separate layers of fabric?

Edited: Okay, I think I see it. The roll is rolled up "backwards" so the printed fabric is on the inside?

If you roll up from the bottom to the inside, then the outside facing fabric shows (which is white) and the pattern fabric is rolled to the inside. I suppose you could make two layers of printed fabric on both the inside and the outside, but we wanted white facing out, which is also the moisture resistant layer of the Warm Window fabric.

Rolling all the way up gives you the most compact profile and much of the curtain tucks into the valence.

I think these look really nice. do you think you will get much condensation behind the shades when they are down? I suppose it isn't a big deal. Just wipe it up with a rag in the morning when you open the shades, but would be curious to hear a report after you have used them for a bit.

Still, I really like the looks of them.

Looks great - as do all of your mods!!!
Question:
How do you attach the Velcro to the window frame? We've never had luck getting the stick-on Velcro to stay on the window frame...in hot weather the glue gets hot and too soft to stay put.

mods to our trailer

bought a sheet of same material Escape uses for projects. Cut a piece to go behind stovetop . it will sit behind vent and loosen screws and tucked it there holds it pretty well . Also cut down table and we like it up all the time we put our 3 galloon water container which has a manual pump to get our water . Did not like trying to get by or putting it up and down . Working on another idea for more counter that can be removed and put away . Pat

Here's what I did for extra counter space. Holds things like a couple of plates etc. to the right of the stove. Same height as the counter. It's swing down, swing up.

Works for us.

That looks good, Ron. I have been trying to arrive at the same resultant, but with it turned tight against the gable. This would mean some kinda fancy swivel too, as it has to turn on two axes. Keeping it simpler like this is likely the way to go, and much easier to accomplish.

Great mods. Your unit looks fantastic.

A few minutes ago I signed off on my ETI build sheet for my 5.0TA. I just want to thank everyone on the Forum who posts helpful hints. Your ideas have been invaluable for me in choosing.....whatever options are out there. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Good idea Ron . I have the material to match counters . Also thinking of maybe a extension in front of sink that would hang and could be removed when not needed. I saw a 2 piece hanger maybe would work . One piece under sink the other on shelf extension .I need to see it in person to see if will work . I do have the flip up tables both walls in bed area , but they are shorter then what you made there . Still thinking . Pat
