Shower curtain?

We recently bought a 2012 Escape 19' and it didn't come with a shower curtain. ( I don't recall if the new ones come with one, but it didn't take a close look if they do.) Since the rail isn't for a standard shower curtain, can someone post a picture of the top of their shower curtain or recommend what type of shower curtain system to buy? Thanks!

You can use any shower curtain with it. We replaced ours with a nicer one than the plain white plastic one. There should be a bunch of hooks on rollers on the track. If not easy to pick them up somewhere. Here are some at Camping World.

Ah ha! There are no hooks that's why I was confused! Thank you!

The original curtain is very lightweight. I gave mine a "haircut" because it was too long, plus I shortened even more the part that just covers the wall, so there is less bunching when pulled aside.

The one we bought was a lightweight fabric, which we cut to an appropriate length. We also made a matching strap to tie it back beside the toilet, using velcro.

Thanks, Jim. I'm having a hard time seeing how these would work on the track. Do you have an available picture? Thanks!

I believe the little wheels go in a track on either side of the rail. If you were to look from the inside, you'd see the wheels from the side (the diameter view) and they roll in the track. There is a track on each side. When installed you'll only view one wheel as the other is on the other side. (If you are short.) In order to install, one needs to remove (by unscrewing) the blocking gizmo at one of the ends of the track and slide the wheels in the track, one by one. The gizmo is replaced and the curtain can be hung. The hole at the top of the curtain can go over the hanging hook part. It actually is harder to describe than do.

We usually pull our trailer out of storage for an Easter trip, but there is just too much snow to camp right now. Not that we mind the snow around, but access is lousy. If I stop by my rental garage where it is stored, I will snap you a quick pic.
