Question how to attach windshield curtain 24HL

I just bought new Four Winds Sprinter 24HL...there is a windshield privacy curtain in the rig, but no instructions on how to hook it up in the windshield. dealer did not demonstrate. There is velcro strip on curtain, but I see nothing to which to attach the curtain to. How do I hook it up?

Welcome to our campfire!
I'm still sorting the one out in our Outlaw...
We've reached the point where it stays where we put it: it's just not pretty!

If you don't have corresponding velcro "buttons" on the curtain and the cab: they're easy enough to add. You can buy them at just about any hardware store...

If its the same as the Transit based rigs it hangs down about where the steering wheel is. It is not secured on the bottom. Mine has 6 or 7 buttons screwed to the overhead, also ours came with a hard cover for windshield and door windows so I rarely ever use the curtain. Of course the Four Winds may be completely differant.

Ours came with about the same, a curtain in a plastic bag, no attachment points anywhere, no one had any idea how or where. In looking around, discovered that Winnebago's built on the Sprinter chassis, had a great plastic pleated track mounted window cover setup, pulled across the windshield, and both cab side windows. Had dealer install those, they work great. Original curtain remains in the plastic bag, never used.

Just above the cockpit windows there should be black velcro dots. That's what we have and that's where the curtain attaches.

As far as cost goes, it was included in the base price.

Janiewood, I had the dealer install the track shades as part of the purchase deal, but I do recall them complaining about how much the kit cost them to buy. I believe they are available from Winnebago, but I believe they may be German designed and constructed, as there are number of stickers etc, on them in German. They are a perfect match, as far as color and fit, and IMO are absolutely the best solution I know of, to close off the cab windows.

i have a black dot on side by driver and one on side by passenger, but nothing else...how to keep curtain hanging near front windshield?? or maybe it just goes across the seats? shouldn't the curtain be between the front seats and the windshield?

In the Outlaw: the curtain goes around the inside of the cab: blocking the side windows, and the windshield...

We just bought a Chateau 22B. I had thought the Velcro buttons were missing. Well what do you know, I found them. There are two under each “sun glare flapper” on the front windshield. Then there are 2 more located on the panels behind each seat, driver’s seat and passenger seat. So, there are a total of six Velcro buttons. Doesn’t look beautiful from the inside, but it does effectively give privacy when trying to peek in from the outside. To make it look more tailored, I could add a couple more but it doesn’t really need it.
