Bought the 2006 Itasca Sunrise 38J

Well I took the plunge and bought the 2006 Itasca Sunrise 38J. Mint condition I must say and very happy with my decision. Just on small thing which I would like to ask assistance on. For some strange reason the original owner took out the front windshield privacy curtain, don't know why. Would anyone know the length and height of both driver and passenger sides so I can find and order new ones. My 07 Damon 369 had the pleated sort of firm style that you just hold the provided plastic sick to open and close them.
All assistance welcomed and a big thank you in advance.
Merry Christmas to all

I would check with Winnebago, they should be able to tell you the measurements and maybe even sell you a curtain. If that fails I'd take a measurement from the curtain track to the dash. Then take the curtain track down and measure the length of that with a cloth measuring tape, you'll have to take it down to install the curtain so this is not an extra step. I can't measure ours because ours is in storage for the winter.

Thank you for your help. I left the coach at the rv dealer which is 250 miles away. With bad weather and icy roads, they are going to deliver it (for free) down to me when the weather gets better, otherwise I would go and measure the tracks.
Thank you

Congrats on your rig! I'm sure you will love it. Has to be the best floorplan I have found out there. Can't understand why it was stopped in '08! I could go out and measure the track in ours if it's the same. I would guess it is. Like that it overlaps when closed and also when it's open it is out of the way.
I spent 2 years hunting down our 38J, and glad I took the time.

Don't even bother with the curtain. Get someone to install custom day night roller shades. Best thing I ever did in my old Precept.

Just came in from measuring the track and curtains-
Track is 104 inches long and overlaps by 10 inches in the center.
Curtains measure 130 inches long by 38 inches high.
Hope that helps. In my opinion, these curtains are much better than any roll down blinds can be. Flexible and very easy to slide into place. Our cat likes them also, as he can just poke his head under to have a look out if we haven't opened them yet and he wants to see what's going on outside.
We have the fitted sun/privacy screen that snaps on the outside as well.(windshield and both side windows) Really nice to have to keep sun out and privacy also letting light in during the day. It's the same as having a very dark tint on the windshield and side windows.

Wow, thank you. I have been in contact with a fellow at Winnie and he said the curtains were 110 inch each side and 42 inch drop (height). I think I had better wait til I can see feel and touch it, then measure and get it right. I like the sort of firm pleated ones with the plastic wand to close them and if I order wrong, I am stuck with them.
Thank you for you taking the time to go and measure for me.
Merry Christmas
