Need help from greater minds than mine...

...which are most!

I just recently became the proud owner of a Flagstaff T21TBHW. I think it's the same as the Rockwood A213HW. It's the one with the cassette toilet right next to the dinette/bed and 2 twins at the other end. If I was more computer savvy, I'd post a picture of the floor plan - maybe some kind, knowledgeable could help me out on that.

Anyway, since most of my travels will in the company of grand-kids, I'm envisioning some sort of fabric partition at the end of the twin beds all the way across the trailer and then another beside the dinette bed. I thought I'd put a motion detecting light in the middle portion so that the person in bed would know not to get up to use the potty if the light is already on (indicating the potty is in use). The wife has already agreed to make these curtains with mesh in the middle third for air circulation. I just need some ideas on how best to hang them.

I don't think a curtain rod would work very well at that length (80 inches). I've thought about velcro tape stapled into the roof, or cup hooks screwed into the side walls with clothesline between.

I've seen some real ingenuity on this forum. I sure would value your assessment of my ideas or for you to provide ideas that haven't entered my mind.

Thanks,

Phillip

a piece of painted 1" emt painted, or a wooden closet rod with the closet hangers on the ends. you might have to support it in the middle with a hanger from the ceiling

Curtains

How about one of those tension shower rods? i just looked on Amazon saw one that goes up to 86". Would be easy to take down when you want to fold up the camper.

I use a heavy duty tension rod that presses into closet rod hangers on both side walls. I hang all kids of things from it - it would easy handle curtains.

Consider using 3/16" bungee cord with S hooks as a flexible rod and use eye hooks at the hanging points. They are easily remove when not needed. We have used this system many years ago when the kids were younger. If you stretch the bungee the curtains will hang pretty straight. You can buy bungee in various diameters cut to length at West Marine.

curtain

I would think you could custom fit a pop up room like they use on pontoon boats. Here is a cool link to a person's how to. Seems a little pvc pipe and wahla a potty room

when we had our pup, the shower/toilet area had an aluminum circle track that attached to the ceiling and the curtain hung from it with little hooks that fit in the track.
