We just got (cheap!!)a '77 Winnebago Sportsman that runs like a dream; 'course the 460 passes everything but a gas station! However, the interior needs some fixin' up. All if the appliances, heat and A/C; water etc are perfect. I need to replace all of the curtains and there is some water damage to parts of the ceiling - it doesn't leak now. Do we take down the old stuff? What's under it? The curtains have some kind of snaps that fit into a channel. Any thoughts or ideas will be appreciated!

WE opted to strip the roof out (from the inside). You would be amazed at the amount of rot we found in places that looked like the water leaks was minimal. Of course the whole back section of the roof was rebuilt. We had a roof rack & ladder that was factory installed and they managed to miss every piece of wood they were supposed to screw into. We removed the rack & ladder. Resealed the whole roof and then started stripping the interior. Took parts down to exterior skin. Others parts we left alone. Did alot of rewiring and tossed the old curtains. You should be able to order the curtain stuff at pretty much any RV place.
