Fleetwood: Front Cabin Curtains

My 08 Providence came with side curtains that close off each side (driver/passenger) and the electric two zone visor that serves as visor and privacy at night. I really miss the old fashioned full track curtain that you can close with a single motion hand wand. Has anyone ever retrofitted a newer model with a system like that? Shouldn't be too difficult to replace the two tracks with a complete single track to run behind the electric visors. Would love some advise from others with the same problem who have had it fixed.

Retrofitting as you call it would be very simple and easy to do. You will need the curtains of your choice and then the "I" beam rail, fasteners, fabric hangers, end stops, screws and a few hand tools. The "I: beam can be bent for the corner radius you want and is just secured into the upper cabinet bottoms. Measure the distance the rail will be and install; then roll the fabric with hangers attached onto the "I" beam and install end stops. Good luck and keep us posted

Thanks Mike;
I think this is one project I can do myself. I'll give it a try and let you know how it goes.
