Privacy Curtains

I just picked up a 2014 3010 and the privacy curtains are really bad. What are all of you using instead of these curtains. I don't really want to use the windshield cover. Any help would be appreciated.

We use the privacy curtain and a windshield cover.

Privacy Curtains

In our 2250 we found the curtains to be useless and the slides a piece of junk. We ordered off the shelf curtains from JCPenny and the track to go with them. My wife did shorten the curtains, I installed the new slides, but now we have ceiling to floor closures that really work.

We cut current curtains down to about two inches on our Sunseeker and found pretty good matching fabric. My wife sewed this to this existing 2" inch curtain and now we have floor to ceiling curtains. My wife does not want the front window covered at campgrounds so we can see whats going on.

What we have done in our last three rigs and will do on our new 3011ds, is install
our own windshield cover. Yes you can spend big bucks and have them
custom made, and write them a check. But one of my nick names is "cheapo"

We just bought add'l material at Lowes (in the garden dept). It is called
"sunscreen fabric". It comes in black, green and light tan, we always use
the black. During the day you can see out and no one can see in, at
night you better pull the blinds tight or keep your clothes on!

My dw is not the worst sewer but she is right up there. For the new rig we'll
just sew the edges and probably tuck the excess behind the doors. In the
past we have added snaps and we'll probably do that in the future.

This material (comes 6x15) blocks both sun and shade and will protect
your dash from the sun but not the moon.

Hope this helps

We found an aluminum sheeting type of thing at Camping World that we were able to cut to size. We place it inside on both the windshield and the passenger and drivers side doors. Once it's cut, just press it into place once you get to your site and it makes the RV private. Very simple and fast. It's called "multi purpose foil", don't let the word "foil" throw you, it's fairly thick, about 1/8th inch thick.

KQ2N, sounds interesting, can you see outside when this cover
is in place?

No, can't see through the foil. During the day, it's easy to remove the passenger and driver door pieces to allow additional light in. They just press into place in a second (if you cut them a bit oversize) once night arrives.
