Replacement Guide

Before ordering replacement curtains and valances, it’s important to have two pieces of information: 

1) How are the current curtains or valances installed?

2) What are the measurements of the original curtains or valances? 

This guide can help to determine both. If you're ordering a stock package, please review the attachment hardware photos and the measurement diagram below before ordering.  If requesting a quote on a custom package, please review both before submitting our Request for Pricing form at the bottom of the page.


1) How are the current curtains or valances installed?

Following are pictures of several types of attachment hardware. If you don’t see your hardware shown, please send a photo and we can help to identify it.


C-Clips:


C-Clips are rigid PVC clips, approximately .875" long, used for curtain installation in most Fleetwood-Coleman pop-up campers. All of our stock Fleetwood-Coleman curtain packages use sewn-in C-Clips. These C-Clips slide onto a wall-mounted track.


Curtain tabs:


Curtain Tabs are flexible plastic tabs with a beaded head that slides into a wall- or ceiling- mounted track.  Dimensions: 7/8" wide x 3/4" high. The diameter of the rounded head that slides into the track is 3/16".  They are commonly used in Jayco, Starcraft and Palomino campers.


Plastic Glide Tape:

Plastic Glide Tape has small 1/2” clips which attach to ceiling- or wall-mounted track. Can be used to attach flat or gathered curtains and valances.  Most newer Rockwood and Flagstaff models use Glide Tape for curtain installation.


Elastic Glide Tape:


Elastic Glide Tape has small 1/2” clips which attach to ceiling- or wall-mounted  track. 
Elastic glide tape is the preferred method for installing gathered valances. Our stock Fleetwood Coleman valance packages use elastic guide tape.


2) What are the measurements of the original curtains or valances? 


Measuring Curtains

Measuring your existing curtains, if possible, is the best way to ensure the proper fit of replacement curtains.

First take curtain measurement "A", the full length of the curtain from top to bottom. This is the curtain length. Then take curtain measurement "B", the full length of the curtain from side to side.  This is the curtain width. Be sure to measure the length and width of all curtains in your set.  Some curtains that appear to be the same size may have slightly different measurements.


Measuring windows

If you are not able to measure the existing curtains, we can also work from window measurements.  Taking length and width measurements for windows is similar to taking measurements for curtain panels as shown above, with one key difference: when measuring windows, the length measurement should be taken from the center of the curtain track on which the curtains are installed to the bottom of the window.  Please note: We will make the curtains larger than the widow measurements provided, adding 3" to the length and 2" to the width to ensure proper window coverage unless otherwise instructed.

Measuring Valances

Valances require two measurements -- the height and the length.  The height of the valance is the measurement from top to bottom, often in the neighborhood of 8" to 12".  The length of the valance is best measured by the length of the track on which the valance is installed.  We recommend measuring the valance track to get the most accurate measurement.  

Most pop-up campers will have at least two valance lengths -- one for the front and back bunk ends and one for the roadside and curbside tracks.
