When we had our pup, we used cup hooks and rope. We hung a shower curtain on it with shower curtain hooks. That was 1981 though, lot more options now.

Adjustable Curtain Rod

I had posted some mods I made last week - one added an adjustable rod to create a dressing area. Changing in the bath was just too much effort. The adjustable curtain rod between the end of the bunks and the opposite wall worked out really great and we have plenty of room and privacy now. I didn't want to do screws if I could help it and the rod was very inexpensive at WMT. Curtain was the most $ but altogether maybe $25 in rod, curtain and decorative button hooks.

I'd also consider curtain tracks. They mount to the ceiling and flexible ones can be fashioned about any configuration. My old Montana had them in the ceiling somewhat curved around separating the bed itself from the shower enclosure ... I've seen them on several other units as well.

Looks very professional!

As much as I like the curtain track ideas, I don't see them working well on the slanted roof of an A-frame. Or am I missing something?

Pictures of the area you are trying to enclose would help. A couple of other suggestions are snap poppers like are used on boat covers or Velcro strips.

Ptchap - your best bet is to go with tension rods or bungee from side to side. Many nice ideas posted that work well in a convenientional trailer or tent trailer but won't work at all in an A-Frame trailer.

A good thing to keep in mind is that altho you posted on the A-Frame sub-forum, your post appears to the entire FR forums and many do not realize they are responding to an A-Frame question so you just have to sort thru the answers to see if it would apply at all.

Ptchap, here's a few photos that show a tension rod in place in my trailer. It works for the times that I have a friend bumming in with me or when spouse wants to sleep and I dont....I can draw the curtain and he can sleep while I watch a movie or read.

And that is why I almost always put "A-Frame" somewhere in my subject when I start a new thread. We have our own little peculiarities here .

"It's an A-Frame thing. You just wouldn't understand."
