    Hi all,

    I'm in the process of making curtains for our *new to us* 92 Coleman Pioneer. There are no curtains but the previous owner did save the sew-on plastic tabs from the original curtains. Can somebody please tell me how far apart the tabs are on the back of the curtains? These are the little plastic tabs at the top back of the curtain that slide into a channel on the camper side above the windows. Thanks for your help!

    They are about 6 inches in our camper. I would say make them about the same spacing as on the curtains in your house or just a little closer.

    Happy Camping!

    6 inches in my '93 Coleman Chesapeake too. I know because I was measuring them to make new curtains this winter to have for next season's camping trips.

    Where can I get those plastic tabs? DH thought we could use cheap curtain rods but I hate rehanging them every camping trip and taking them down each time we are headed home.

    Camping World has them, on their website and in their store. On the website, search for drapes.

    I got some from a Fleetwood dealer when I did my curtains.
