When we picked up our Retro 177SE it came with mini blinds… the first thing to go! I made curtains all around and a couple of matching placemats. I also made a bag to hold plastic grocery bags for trash and travels on the dinette seat to look like a pillow

Good Job. They look great! The placemats are a really nice touch.

Love the curtains and placemats! I hate blinds too! My Riverside White Water Retro came with curtains that will do for now. Maybe if and when they start to wear I can swap them out.

Oh very nice !!!!  I can’t wait to get rid of the blinds and put curtains in, makes it more comfy. I did take out the bed spread, can’t do all of that retro stuff… hahhaaha. I actually was born in the 60’s and grew up in the 70’s.  Iowen34 what did you use to keep curtains up? one of those expandable rods? My mom is a great sew’er and can make curtains for me.

I love your curtains! I am not a sewer but want to have curtains made. How much fabric did this take? I found fabric I would like to order but have no idea how much to get. Thanks!!

I do prefer the curtains to the mini blinds.  I’ll be doing our décor with some vintage camping items to give the trailer more character and charm.
