Drapes For Front Windshield

Our front drapes need to be relined or replaced. Local dry cleaner says the drape is OK but the lining fabric is not likely to survive cleaning.

Is it possible that there will be a vendor in Quartzsite that does this sort of thing?

Any shop in Coburg, OR, or surrounding area.

Thanks,

We bought ours at CW and the price was right.

We had the lady that does all of our draperies in the stick house make them for our mh. Took the drapes down and took a pillow off the couch and came back with samples and gave an estimate of $280 to $365 depending on which fabric the wife chose. The estimate was with black out lining, installed on our 99 HR Endeavor. She is in Moreno Valley Ca, just east of Riverside. We have always been pleased with her work. Email me if you want her phone number and maybe you could swing thru on your way to Quartzsite.

For simply relining the existing drapes, seems ANY local drapery shop could easily supply fabric samples and pricing - plus, having it done locally makes it lots easier to keep tabs on progress and finished results - and handle any issues that might arise...

For that matter - they could most likely also make up completely new drapes specifically to fit your RV, without the adapting/compromise some generic drapes might require.

Thanks, all, for the tips. I've taken the drapes to a local curtain/blind shop here. They purport to make drapes and will give me an estimate for relining on Monday. If that turns out to be too much we'll look into the Camping World solution.

Our options are kind of limited up here. In Los Angeles we could find any number of shops that would do this, do it cheap, and do it fast. We understand and accept the price of "country living".

Thanks again. Will post results.

I would think the black out lining would be overkill for me....I'm sleeping until 8:30 the way it is!

Vegasdan, good job! Wish I could do that. I have to make do with a nap!

As to the curtains/drapes (what's the right term in this case?) - The local seamstress was familiar with re-lining drapes and suggested a drape lining material. Bottom line was $140, all in. She did an excellent job and the drapes look like new.

In fairness, part of the new look is attributable to dry cleaning. That cost $83. I think they base the price length and number of pleats. In our case the drapes are 36" long and have 60 pleats.

FWIW
