Default Caravan curtains

We bought our first static last season and as we are about to re open the caravan in a few weeks I am now thinking about buying new curtains. Where would I go to buy the sizes needed for the windows in a static caravan? The current ones are the eyelet type on poles.I am not looking to replace the poles just the curtains.

If you google caravan curtains there are a number of sites with both ready made and made to measure ones. You can also buy normal ones and get them altered which I've done in the past.

We bought a new van last year, the colours in the lounge are quite neutral, (beige) and it had brown floral curtains. I have gone for red accessories and recently saw that Argos had red floral curtains, at the bargain price of 6.99, reduced from 19.99, so I bought 5 pairs for the caravan. These are eyelet type and quite long, so I cut them down to the right length and with what was cut off I have enough to make six scatter cushions, and tie backs. So I've got 5 pairs of new curtains, tie backs and scatter cushions for 34.95, previously I've paid 8 for single cushions, think I've got a bargain.

Wish I or Ms Old Sparky, we're handy with a sewing machine. We did enquire once at Dunelm Mill on cost to make curtains for small bedroom, and the price they came back with was a jaw dropping 180.

If you can't sew you can always cut curtains down and then turn them up using wonder web!! I used wonder web all the time for hems before I got my sewing machine.
Just make sure you measure well and try them at the window before you iron the wonder web

Do Willerby sell packs of the actual curtains for your particular van or is there a company does this?

Try online at www.curtainstogo Not sure if it's .com or .co.uk but it will be one or the other. They have a good range to choose from and aren't expensive.

If I remember correctly, they make them to measure, so you can just measure your old curtains and insert the measurements into the boxes provided.

Mosquito, you've replied to a question from March 2015. Think they may have got their curtains now,

The trouble is they are listed as new posts and unfortunately I don't always check the dates.
