    The curtain that goes all the way around the drop down bed on our Rapido A class which has french pleats in the fabric has gone saggy because the elastic has lost its tension. Replacing the elastic would be difficult because the old stuff would need to be removed first and that look a devil of a job.

    Has anyone had to replace such a curtain, if so where did it come from, alternatively, can anyone suggest anyone who could do the job please?

    any seamstress would be easily able to sew in new elastic. ask around locally for anyone that takes in alterations etc

    failing that elastic can be bought cheap on ebay and sew it in yourself. with french pleats though, a pro job would be best for finish
