    Morning everyone -

    Took the Wife shopping for curtain fabric yesterday and she found a print that she really liked.

    I know I can order the connector tape, that;s not an issue.

    Does anyone know where to buy or the right name for the Mesh that is used? My old mesh is not able to be used due to tears through out.

    Thanks for looking and for the help.

    @theseus that is an excellent suggestion. I may have to do that when my mesh gives up the ghost. Mine was stained and had a hole or two but used it anyway because I couldn't figure something cheap.
    @seawolf68 Love the curtain fabric. You got to show the finished product when your done.

    Either will probably work, it's difficult to tell how stiff they from the descriptions. On the Amazon one, the an answer to one of the questions is that it is very stiff. It's a bit easier to work with if it's about the same hand as the fabric.
    if you have time to spare, you can order samples from Seattle Fabrics.

    I just measured ours this past weekend! Loving the mesh laundry bag idea for the top, my hubs doesn't want me to cut them apart, in case the person we sell too next year wants the original ones. Can't imagine who wants those dry rotted dusty rose things, but hey, to each his own I guess!

    Mine doesn't have curtains. What is the advantage of a mesh top?

    The bottoms give you the privacy while the tops will let air come in from the AC which is roof level.
