    I need some runners to fit on this curtain rail in my cab. Can anyone help identify what I need. I've already tried 2 different types but no luck.

    We found items to fit our Burstner (two different types) at a local caravan shop 3 years ago.

    These may be what you need or some on this page. They seem a bit pricier than I recall paying though.

    Perhaps an ordinary curtain shop may be able to help? Do you have curtains to fit?

    I wondered where you buy MH curtains from and do they have to be special flame retard material as we are missing them from the cab windows?

    We've tried a and c so far. Maybe e is worth a go? At this rate I'll be able to set up my own curtain shop! Thanks for the help so far. We've tried our local caravan shop but they sent us home with b. I'd change the rail but I've only been able to find straight ones so far and this needs to go round the cab.

    they all come straight.. nylon rail bends easily .. for really tight bends a little heat from a hair dryer helps

    That rail looks like the one I had at the front of my caravan. The things that went in just sort of popped in.. like little balls...

    I ended up putting a nylon one up in the shower when I couldn't get sliders to fit that one, but I was hoping to stick to this sort of style as it's more compact. I was looking at THIS but don't think it will bend.

    That sounds a bit like what Scotland Jim pictured above.
    You can't see it in my photo but if you look at the rail from the end it's actually a curved front rather than a square.
