In our TC the bathroom is fine for taking showers but when it comes time to dry off we tend to open the door or move into the hallway for more room. That's great if it's just the two of us but there's times when we bring a friend with us and they may not want to be so friendly in those moments.

So I added a removable privacy curtain (fabric shower curtain)that we can store until it's needed on a trip.

I started by getting oak closet rod holders and an oak dowel rod to fit the holders, a fabric shower curtain and rings.

Install the holders and then cut the dowel to the correct lenght

Add the curtain and wa-la, privacy.

[image]

The oak pieces have been stained and polyurethaned to match the camper, the curtain has been hemmed to be about an inch of the floor. The curtain was the perfect size to fold in half so it is a finished side on both sides.

[image]

The rod comes off so easy by lifting on the right side, remove the curtain and store. The only thing visible will be the two holders unless we have company.

I gotta ask, do you cover the little window at the bottom of your camper door? [emoticon]

If they had a Palomino 1000SL, the little door window would ALREADY have a cover installed for the window. [emoticon] Nice idea with the shower curtain!

Nice, wouldn't mind doing something similar, but get one of those shower curtain tracks that they normally install on the ceiling of an RV bathroom then curve it so that I could enclose the whole area by the bathroom and door and then slide it over and snap it out of the way next to the bathroom door.

I don't know Bruce, I think I see the silhouette of Jesus in that shower curtain. Or did you grow a beard? Very cool idea, just leave the light off behind yu!! [emoticon]

Yes, the camper came with a insulated snap on cover for that lower window.

With a slight twist, I could use this idea for a "winter cover" for the door to reduce any drafts seeping through using heavier material. Great idea! Gotta find me and old horse blanket now [emoticon]

A removable privacy curtain in the hallway is a great idea and will work great in my camper. Thanks for sharing. Paul
