Door/Curtain Ideas Needed

I need to isolate the bunk beds from the living area. The bedroom already has a door, but I need something between the fridge and the bunkbeds.

Our old travel trailer had a curtain channel installed on the roof and then there was a curtain that you could close to have some privacy in the bedroom. I'd like to use something better than a curtain for noise control, but can't seem to find something that will fit.

Pictures would help generate responses/suggestions.

I actually made curtains for the bunks in our trailer before we traded up to our Georgetown. A sewing machine and some material...and you're off to the races! They sell the curtain tracks in various shapes, sizes and colors. I just did a quick search on Camping World with a keyword of "curtain track". It came back with stuff to get you started. You'd want to get a ceiling mount track and then I just sewed in glide track right onto the material of the curtain at the top. Here's a starter link for you. Oh.. and I am not a sewing machine wiz by ANY means! I went to Lowes and deconstructed one of their panels on display and then went back and made mine at home. Boom! Done! :-) Window Covering Hardware, RV Window Drape Carriers, Shade Knobs - Camping World

Do you have the residential refrigerator? We also have the 2014 351ds and would like something between refrigerator and bunk beds, but don't see how it would be possible with our residential frig and the slide

Actually, it would be possible...IMHO. There's that solid wall on the right side of the fridge (I have a residential as well) and then there's a gap of about 6 inches (going from memory) before the wall for the bunk slide is there. You could easily make and store your curtain sliding from the outer wall towards the bathroom wall; storing the curtain in that gap area.

OP stated he didn't want curtains and wanted a little more soundproofing.

Thanks all for the replies. The bunkbeds already have curtains, one for each bunk. the coach is at the campsite and I'm going by memory, but IIRC there is a gap between the residential fridge and the slide and a track or frame up on top could be installed. Curtains would be the last resort. Part of the problem, besides wanting a bit more soundproofing, is that the bunks get hot/cold with their curtains closed. So, when the kids are in bed we'd like to have a door closing off the area.

I'd like to use something like a folding or accordion door, but can't seem to find it. I took measurements last time we used it and the area is ~40 x 80.

When we had our 08 Flagstaff 831RLSS, we took the panel door off the bathroom door going into the bedroom and bought an accordion door from Lowes. Might use 2 of these or two panel doors on a track.Shop ReliaBilt 36-in x 78-1/4-in Oak Vinyl Folding Closet Door at Lowes.com

Yes, I think that'll work OldCoot. Thanks.
