Rear window curtain tie backs.
We got our Georgetown about 6 weeks ago. We didn’t pay much attention to the appearance of the back window curtains, and they did look attractive with the provided hooks for holding them back.
The problem is that they are almost impossible to walk past without ripping them almost out of the wall.
There is only about 12 inches from the back wall to the bed, and the fancy hook to hold back the curtains are about 5 inches from the wall. Managed to avoid the problem on the first weekend trip, \but it got us on the second weekend.
We got some braded tie backs from Bed Bath and Beyond and some hooks from Lowes and mounted the hooks a few inches above the original fancy hooks.
As we did this we noticed that someone else must have knocked the hook out of the wall before we took possession. The screw holes on the left had wall anchors and the ones on the right did not!
After converting to braded tie backs, our back window now looks like this.
Not as elegant looking as the fancy hooks, but we can walk past the bed without worrying about ripping things off the wall.
I'm planning two more posts.
- How I modified my Coleman Road Trip Grill so we can connect it directly to the quick connect on the side of the Georgetown. (Later today).
- And I'm working on a spice rack and paper towel holder that can ride behind the stove while traveling. (Hopefully will post this one withing a week or two)
Would love to see how others have made improvements to their Georgetown!
