Default M380 Window Treatment Upgrade

The vertical window separators in our recently purchased coach were water stained, likely due to open windows and driving rain. The material on the vertical separators and the horizontal valances over the windows was an off-white cotton weave fabric. The stains were permanent and cleaning only made them worse. We purchased vinyl materials at our local fabric store, light beige for the valances and an olive-type green for the verticals. After removing the old fabrics and the million staples used to supplement the original contact cement, I re-trimmed the parts with the new materials. The only parts not changed were the dual-color add-ons to the valances, which were reattached after the vinyl was wrapped. The right side is done after about 6-hours of labor. We love it and will be doing the same behind the couch in the front slide. The new vinyls are easy to clean and look almost like faux leather.

I also now plan to wrap the carpeted wire/plumbing cover that runs down the right side from the front seat to the refrigerator. These are little touches that are inexpensive and make the coach "our-own". Fun stuff!
