Has anyone found a good source for replacing the front curtains on a 2003? Ours have had it.

I would call a local drapery shop. You might even be able to take the old ones in for them to use them as a pattern.

We did away with the curtains and installed MCD blinds. Much better way to go than curtains.

Warrior, I agree, but the MCD shades are pretty pricey.

We have a set from our 03 that we sold a while back. You are welcome to them. We sold our coach thru a broker and he insisted we take everything out of the basement that we felt should have gone with the coach. So we have the drapes and a yard of fabric that matches the couch.

Hello SRAlpine:

I just replaced all 4 of my shades on the 2001 38ft Alpine with MCD Dual Shades (Manuel). Three are still OK the forth needs to be restrung. If you want them let me know. You can go to a RV supply and they should be able to order new ones.

The MCD’s were over $1000, but worth the price and we like them better, and they weren’t that hard to install.

Like Dave I replaced my shades with the MCD Dual shades. Unlike Dave my old shades didn't make the trip home after being replaced. They went directly into the dumpster at the storage lot. No way were they ever going back into the coach. I love the MCD shades.

I still have not looked into replacing the cockpit curtains with the power MCD shades, but I would like to do that someday. Just not a big priority yet.
