Hate the shower curtain rail, options?

My new Apex Ultra Lite 289TBSS has an aluminum rail that is like a mini I beam that the shower curtain rides on. While taking a shower your constantly running against that curtain in the narrow shower. Is there an aftermarket bowed rail that would create the illusion of a larger shower stall? I'm guessing that I could remove this rail, fill the screw holes with some white or clear RTV and mount up a new outwardly curved rail and gain much needed inches of elbow room. I'm not even a large human at 5'8" and 185#, I can't imagine how tight this feels to some of the monster sized humans we all see!Click image for larger version

A extend a shower might work for your situation.

It extends out while you shower. It retracts in when you're not. I was very happy with it in my TT. This way, it wont permentntly hang over your sink.

How does it transition from the inward position to the outward? Like, what do you do to move it?

my grey wolf 24js has the same style I beam but it is curved, so that might be an option also.

I just did this. I unscrewed the center I-beam curtain rod support and pulled the I-beam out about 6 inches along the ceiling, Then I screwed the I-beam support bracket in the new location. It flexes nicely and the end brackets hold on to it. Made a world of difference using the shower and didn't cost anything.

I find if you shower side way, your shoulders dont brush the curtain as much. I don't shower in it often but when we do, we stand sideways. Curved rod would be a good idea!
