On a related item, has anyone replaced the shower curtain "rod," the I beam shaped metal rod that holds the curtain? Ours is starting to show a little rust. I have yet to find a suitable non-rusting material, such as fiberglass or aluminum, to replace the current rod.

When the weather turns around, I'll look at what is used on stick built trailers, but hoping some other Escape owner has already solved the problem.

I replaced my rod the first week I got the trailer. Camped for 7 1/2 weeks last year and used the shower every day with no problems; I used a solid aluminum rod, I believe 3/8" in diameter. I'll go out sometime today and take a pic to post.

We left the original shower rod in place and purchased the same type of shower rod from Texas RV Supply, to go against the back wall. We sprayed it white (originally silver). I installed a full size shower curtain, using extra hooks. This covers the door and the toilet area.

I sewed a piece of braid to one side of the curtain with two small plastic curtain rings on the ends of the braid. To keep the shower curtain out of the way, I gather it up by the braid and attach it to a suction hook when not in use.

Note: Texas RV Supply (http://www.txrvsupply.com/) claims to have one of the largest RV accessory inventories in the world.

Looks great! Since we live in Pearland I tried to find the rod in the Texas RV Supply catalog & couldn't find anything that looks like your picture. I was wondering if you could remember the name/part # for the rod and extra hooks? Our trailer doesn't get here until end of June & wanted to have the parts on hand before it gets here. (I know name/part# might be asking a lot, but nothing ventured, nothing gained!)

Thanks for sharing!

Hi Sharon,

I had to buy a long piece of that rod and I have enough left over if you want it.

Better still, when you go to Chilliwack, ask Dave for the materials. You need 18" of the rod, four hooks and one end-stop. If you miss getting it there, you can take this piece and then order the other stuff.

Thanks so much for the offer. We are going to Chilliwack the 1st week in May (not to pick-up the trailer, but to finish the final specs & get our orientation; they will deliver our trailer end of June, 1st of July). I am keeping this thread so I can talk to them about it when we go. Thanks again for all yall's help!

This is what I did with mine. The hooks go around the back of the toilet so that it doesn't get wet.

Did you have to trim the bottom? Good idea on the stickum hooks.

No I didn't trim the bottom because if you do then it's not long enough to cover the toilet. I used a really soft curtain and it just folds up behind the toilet when not in use and the bungee cord keeps the curtain in place.

Our curtain rod recently fell down. While putting it back up is an easy fix, we like that it is not there at all for normal use. In 4 years the shower has been used a half dozen times max, so I am thinking about some kind of removable system for the curtain. This way it is not a bother for just using the toilet.
