Make some yourself, there's nothing like making your own stuff.
We put the floor down ourselves.
We do as much as we can not so much to save money, but to say we did this.

I agree with Chris, I just measured my windows and will be making my own curtains. I will be doing the kind that have the rod top and bottom and you can go online and get instructions on how to do it if you have simple sewing skills. I am using a dark material that will almost act like black out curtains cause I like it dark at night and for some reason people think they need to keep a porch light on at there campsite all night long.

Well guys, I would love to see pics also love to hear the story of replacing your floor. But I would like to see these curtains, and any links to where you got material.

That is possible, our current ones have tracks and the tabs in the curtains, we were hoping to find replacement ones as an option.

I made my own curtains but am good with a sewing machine - not all women are. Finding the sizes needed for RVs wasn't possible locally. RVs seem to have oddball lengths and widths. I bought the fabric at WalMart. The good thing about making your own is you have an unlimited choice of colors, materials and prints (flowers, stripes, solids).

Might be a bit late with my reply, but I just joined and was going through old posts. I just measured the height I needed and headed off to WalMart in hopes of finding something since I don't do well at sewing. If I didn't find anything that would work, my backup plan was to bribe my mother-in-law to sew some for me.

While browsing the curtain aisle at Walmart, my husband saw some curtains on an end cap and asked if they would work. I took them out of the package and low and behold they had a pocket at both the top and bottom! $7 later (x2) my front window was covered and looked great!

Good luck.
