Very nice. I really like the aluminum wheels. I wish ours had them.

thanks - your trailer will be lever just have to have it slightly tilted for the water to drain to the back - I am always in my front hatches so found the A/C drip was getting me wet so had to tilt it back a little - get one of those small levels and you can just give the trailer an ever so slight tilt that you will barely notice.

- I have one disclaimer though - most of the ideas are mine and use at your own risk cause some will agree to disagree

Sherdep - we bought a 2109S and were looking at the curtains at the head of the bed and know we will have the same problem of the curtains hanging on top of our heads.

What kind of buttons/snaps did you get? Do you have any details or pictures?

Thank you

While you wait for Matt to reply, I thought I would chime in. We have the same trailer, and I put 2 extra pillows under the front window which helps keep the curtains out of our faces.

I went to Joann Fabrics and bought the snaps and the tool to put the snaps together to the material and I used screws to hold the other piece to the wall - I used a scribe or an awl (depends on what ya call it) to poke the hole in the material to allow me to insert the piece into the material.

This is how I did the side door window - I will have to get you a few pictures of the front window for you but if you look at how I did the snaps on this window I put like four snaps along the bottom of the curtain evenly spaced and made sure the middle of the windows stayed closed as well.

RE: Front curtains falling over the bed.

We experience this same issue in our 23LB (same as the 2306). to correct this we moved the mounting point for the strap that holds the curtains back - we moved that screw up. This keeps the drapes from coming down in our faces at night.

IMG_0481 | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

In the photo above, the drape "wrap" is a little low and causes the drapes to easily unfold (in faces when we sleep). We moved the strap up and the drapes "hold tight" all night long.

BTW -- nice work on the door/window covering, Matt!

Good Luck

Thanks for the info and pics. I look forward to seeing the pics of the bed curtain. i am concerned with the snaps in the wall eventually tearing out from use. Snaps can take some force to unsnap.

if they were in the weather I would be concerned but in this case they are easy to snap and take off - I do not take them off hardly at all since the front window doesnt open. If the snaps are a concern just put a dab of grease around the snap but I wouldnt worry about it.
One thing when you do the screws - they need to be short and be able to fit in the inside of the snap piece that you are going to attach to the wall - just take it to Home Depot and match a 1/4" screw to the snap piece.
