Shower curtain

I used a bendable curved shower track/rod & hangers, $30 online I think. That's the original curtain, just pulled tight. I used an OSH "Snap" kit to attach the curtain along the back wall & part of the bottom to keep it from bellowing out. Works sweet!

The magic mesh and screen door spring are great ideas. I am constantly yelling at the kids not to leave the door open.

Love what you've done! I especially like the shelving. I wish my DH would have let me install permanent shelves like that, but I'll take what I got! I also like the shower. I looked at ours an there is no room on the ceiling to install anything with a larger circumference than what came with the camper. GOOD JOB!

Shower curtain website. www.curtain-track.com
You can buy "Snap kits" to secure the curtain along a wall or at the bottom like I did, at most hardware stores. Snaps keep curtain from "Bellowing" out, keeping water in!

Screen door website.
https://www.buymagicmesh.com/
Screens are two (have a spare) for $20.00! Smokin deal! I used snaps here also. You have to trim down the screen, since it's made for house doors.

Next up:
I'm mod'n my bed so you sleep longitudinally, instead of transversely. I did a simple mock up this past trip. My wife said what? I said just you wait. The next morning she said oh yeah, that's awesome baby, you mod makin' stud!

NO more climbing over each other, that's just silly. I HATE that! Why don't they simply design it to sleep straight in? Flippin engineers! Sorry to all you good engineers out there. LOL!!!!
My tent trailer (Jayco 1206) had a KING size bed, you slept straight in, it was a thing of beauty!
Generator: I want to install my generator in one of the empty "Cavities" around the rig. There really is some significant unused space, at least on my Roo 233S. How about yours?

You can see where my shower curtain bisects the roof vent a little,, which actually allows moisture out.

Designing beds to go across serves a purpose as it can create more space. I have the captain style bed and it works for me. Now if I had to crawl over someone to get out I would feel differently. I also got a cabinet with countertop next to the kitchen sink in my unit that the next size unit didn't come that had the walk-around bed.

What is the best bed design? It would be based on your ideal floor plan. Captain style bed are usually a compromise for sure. It's not one I usually seek out.

Before I forget - great mods & keep the pictures coming!
