Hi, I just bought a class C Forest River Sunseeker 25ft. So much to learn, so much to do taking it one step at a time. Super excited. Searching the internet, called camping world and still stumped on where to buy a privacy curtain that wraps around inside the front of the cab. The only solution I have found which is probably pretty pricey is buying the fabric and sewing it but I don't sew so even more pricey. If anyone has any ideas I would appreciate it. Thanks!

Did the job as a replacement for our curtains. They don't look half-bad and the price is right:

There are some other options on Amazon, just keep looking. I needed two pairs of the curtains.

Your rig should have come with a curtain that hangs behind the driver/passenger seats. Check with the dealer and ask where it is. They are usually secured with Velcro. Covers that snap or magnetically attach covering the side windows and windshield of the cab are readily available online.

If you can sew at all, the "Eclipse" curtains at Walmart are full room darkening, and you can make what you need from just one set package. They are on sale pretty often, and come in a variety of colors. The clips and track for them is available at many RV places. DW, made ours to cover the entire front window of our class a. If you can't sew, they can be fabricated using hot glue or better, fabric glue.

I just use an outside windshield cover - they wrap around entire front windshield (driver/passenger included) and provide total privacy. Available at most RV parts outlet stores.

We have a windshield cover, they work great when it's dry outside and not freezing. We have a very rickety privacy curtain that goes around inside, works just fine when we are in a private site where passers by don't go that way. The best we have is a homemade heavier duty curtain that I put up on two knobs that stretches across the back of the class C chairs. It tended to droop and leave a gap, so I bought magnets with holes through them, screwed them to the wall, and put it's mate into a cloth. Now we hang the curtain, put the curtain string up between the magnets, and have no gap. We also use magnets in our garbage can and on the wall, it's strong enough to hold it, but easy to pull off. And we have them on the bathroom door too. It holds the door in it's open position without having to jam it.

That's what we do in our Class C. They cover the front windshield and side windows, last for years, and don't cost much.

These covers provide three functions:

- Insulate the cab area better to keep it cooler in hot weather.
- Insulate the cab area better to keep it warmer in cold weather.
- Provide visual privacy between the RV interior and the front cab windows.

Our Class C also came stock with an interior matching snap-on curtain to block off the inside of the cab from the coach living area. In cold weather we use both the outside cab window cover and the interior curtain to absolutely minimize heat loss from the coach to the cab to the outside.

Bought a movers blanket at Harbor Freight. Put gromlets on one side.
Used those stick up type hooks across the cab over spaced to fit the gromlets. It keeps out the heat in the cab, especially when the cab faces the sun. Keeps in the A/C in the body of the coach. In cooler or colder weather keeps in the heat in the body of the coach.
