Curtins shredding

Our Motorhome is 4 years old and a few things are now happening to it. I'm hoping most of them are under our extended warranty. But, one issue are the curtains. Attached is a pic. The insides are shredding. Has anyone replaced their curtains before and if so where did you find replacements? Thanks.

Oops, actually, it's the outside that are shredding.

Any seamstress or quilter in any town.
They're about three hours labor if the tasked person has built similar before, 10 hours if it's just your quilter friend.
your choice of fabric.

I doubt there's many simpler sewing jobs than rv curtains.

Try Craigslist.

Yes, just make them yourself or have them made. Id not count on an extended warranty for any help on your curtains.

4 years?? Most people have that lining fall apart in under two years. Sew a thermal liner in to replace the shred.

Took my old ones to a seamstress. Had a thermal liner added. I also had 3 magnets put in each one. One in each end and one in the middle. Now they are nice and snug around the windows. The thermal liner really made a difference.

With the exposure to the Sun that they're get: they probably lasted about as long as could be expected.
The good news is that they're so easy to replace.
