It would have been sooo much easier to just buy a new 2016 Vegas/Axis. You would have gotten the shower curtain rod for free.... already installed.

Make sure you order left-hand and right-hand screw for mounting bracket. Then again, there is always duct tape.

"True That!!"

Better yet, look at the Gemini and Compass...they have that shower rod. Maybe I can get someone to cannibalize one!

By the time I get this MOD done it will feel like a major accomplishment.

Take a new 2016 for a test drive. Swap out your old curtain rod for the new curtain rod. Done deal! I'm sure Camping World would be okay with it!

Perhaps I can call CWorld of Strafford, MO and ask them for the rod and brackets ... they seem very accomplished at robbing parts !!

Nothing is simple any more. But I will prevail!

However, at this rate by the time I get done for the cost and time I could have joined a gym, lost the weight and would then fit in the old shower .

DW is 5', 100 lbs says the exisitng shower is "just fine" for her!

K,

I am contacting CW tomorrow and check on status of order. Unless they are on the way I will order the ones you found and keep the second set (may become collectors items and valuable on the Black Market).

THanks.

I found the "Arc" on Amazon, ordered, received and installed. Came with several diffent types of hardware for mounting. I choose the Molly bolts. Gave me a couple more inches of room.

Squid,

Please post pictures of your install. One way or another I am going to complete this MOD. Do you still have the website you used? The run a round I have gone thru with THor and CW may be coming to an end this week (if the mounts come in tomorrow). If not, it is time to look elsewhere.

My wife found a custom bath fitter here in Tampa that says they can design/build any type of tempered glass shower enclosure. I was thinking about the curved bar but looking at where the cabinet ends on my 24.1, they existing track is only 1/2" from the side of the cabinet side. My wife has decided to see what the bath fitter has to say and how much it would cost for a real shower enclosure for the Vegas.

...bring them in one at a time by selecting the carrot next to the paperclip..
then, place your cursor on the message page where you want the photo..
go back up to the paperclip carrot and select each photo, one at a time and they will appear in your message ... have fun !!

Hey Ed ...let me know how that works out...I have read several posts, not relating to our coaches, where some of those glass enclosures are just another rattle source when driving down the road !
Not sure I would want one, anyway,...as our cat seems to think that the shower floor is the ONLY place for his litter box !! (my desire to use the shower will take president over his desire to have his box where he wants it for a few minutes)
What we do for our little guys !!
