Suggestions for curtain between cab & house-Citation (Sprinter)

Our new (used) 2015 Citation 24ST Sprinter has a curtain rod & curtains separating the cab/house.
We don't have the overhead bunk, so the rod sits far enough away from the cabinets that I can't reach them and we've hit our head coming from the cab.
We've removed the rod.
I've attached pictures, and wondering if anyone with some good ideas could give some suggestions on how to place or install a curtain along the base of the cabinets? Looking to use it for our privacy curtain as well as helping with heat/cool in each area.

Thank you!

Our 2008 Four Winds Siesta 24SA has the same layout. Ours has snaps on the trim all around under the cabinets that the curtain snaps to. Easy to put up and take down.

That looks just like the setup we have in our Wayfarer...
We made curtains for the front chassis windowns, and added an easily removed rod for up on the entertainment area; that holds another curtain

How about an external windshield and side window cover. That's what we use in our E450 based class C. Bonus being the heat is mostly reflected off rather than let into the cab and maybe removed by our single marginal AC unit.

We moved our curtain in our E450 under the tv (your center cabinet).
1 hole thru left and right (your tv) cabinet, 1 zip tie in each hole, around rod, back thru hole and into zip tie .
Sorry for the clutter we're getting ready for spring travel after our 2nd shot kicks in

for the helpful responses!

We don't have any snaps, but that would sure be ideal!

Bob-the window curtains look amazing, very nicely done! Someone has some sewing talent?
Is your curtain rod just a tension rod, and if so, it stays up just fine?

abjbrtd- very creative use of zip-ties. Do you have tie backs? Do you find the curtain gets in the way behind you while driving at all? My husband is 6'3" and has the seat all the way back. He's concerned the curtain and/or rod may rub the back of his head.

We'd love to keep the curtain, so these give us some good ideas to try!
And thanks so much for the pictures, that makes a world of difference to those of us who have no imagination to "see" it in our mind!

We use bungie cords to tie the curtain out of the way.
I'm almost 6' so don't have the seat all the way back, the curtain does bother me if its not tied pretty tight.

You'll need the curtain if you ever camp in hot (90*) or cold (40*)

Sounds great, thanks again for your help! I'm sure we'll find the perfect solution soon.

And cold must be relative.....we finally warmed up to 35 degrees today and saw so many people in shorts and t-shirts, it felt & looked like a warm spring day! (we've been in the 20's for I don't know how long, so 40 really sounds warm!) hahaha......

Thanks! The Missus is a whiz with her sewing talents.
We use Velcro to hold them in place.
We used a simple curtain rod (a tension rod?), and just lay up there... We have enough of a lip; to keep it secure.
