New Shower Curtain

Found this shower curtain at Ross for a wonderful $8 and then got another 15% off for Senior discount day. Had to cut off about 40% of the width to fit the shower. We got out the ol glue gun and in 20 minutes had it seamed. Made a tie back out of the material we had to cut off.
Awesome upgrade from the supplied plastic curtain for less than a Big Mac combo.

Very nice Greg . We have been thinking time to get another shower curtain also. Good idea with the glue gun .Pat

I would like to get a new curtain for my 21' but not sure where to find one with the type of hanger that the trailer has. Does this one have a type of top that will hook onto it?

Any inexpensive fabric shower curtain with the little sewn slots in the top (they look like button holes) will work with the little clips on the stock rail.

Just cut it down so it has the same number of holes as the stock vinyl curtain, and fold over and sew the cut edge.

Oh, and you may need to make it shorter and sew the bottom as well. We did.

Good info Robert!
My wife is a flamingo nut. I found this shower curtain to surprise for her.
Fortunately I know someone would love to make the adjustments needed to hang it in our new trailer. With your info, I know exactly what to tell her.

If you don't want to sew it or don't have a machine, a glue gun is simple and quick. We make all our curtains with a glue gun and some of them are over 10 years in use with no issues.

We bought more of the little "drape carrier" do-dads so we could put a wider shower curtain on ours. (The curtain ETI provided was very skimpy, which was nice when it was not being used and was pushed back against the wall; but we wanted to cover both the wooden door AND the bath towels we hang from suction cup hooks.

I think you can get them from Camping World, but we got ours at an RV/marine/boat place. In Oregon. Within days of picking up our 21.

Drape Carrier - Hook Style.

Mary,
This is a great idea! Unfortunately I ordered the shower stall sized curtain so I wouldn't have to cut it down and hem it. Now I learn about using a glue gun and the benefit of a wider curtain. Where you last week before I ordered the narrow one?

Rich, all is not lost.

As long as the curtain covers the door, you could just add a towel rod. The towels stay dry behind the curtain.

But Robert, the wider curtain has two flamingos and I would have gotten twice the brownie points!
Sigh.
Are you going to be at Matagorda Madness this year? If so, don't tell her she could have had two flamingos.

How do you attach the towel rod?

Not a standard bathroom towel rod, but a skinny lighter weight one - similar to what Chris R and some others have done. You can attach it with small anchors if it's a shorter one, or if it's wide enough to reach the frame wood, attach to that.

Just curious why you felt the need to use a glue gun on the edge of your new curtain, Greg. (Which looks great, by the way.) Is it a fabric one? Mine isn't fabric and I just cut it in half and it's been fine.
