New Vegas Curtains

As I had mentioned in another thread, I went down to the storage yard where we keep our 2015 Vegas 24.1. I was going to take it for fuel. As I was opening the front curtains, the white liner of the EOM curtain turned into a snow storm as it disintegrated upon opening the curtain. Several owners have discussed how the lining in the original curtain lining doesn't last more than a year when exposed to the sun.

Since we didn't want to reuse the gold fiberglass type original curtains, my wife bought some 100% cotton upholstery material from Joanne's Fabrics. She picked a country red and white herringbone design. We gently removed the white looped trim on the original curtains and reused it to attached the wheel track hangers on the new curtains. She used the old curtain as the pattern for the new.

She is going to use the same material for decorative pillows on the twin beds and we are looking for twin sized spreads in the same color for the beds.

Attached pictures so the finished product.Click image for larger version

The liners on our Vegas front side curtains shredded from the Florida sun. Mrs S replaced the thin liners with blackout curtain liner material from JoAnns. Quick job for an old sewing machine.
