Or you can do what we did and get an extra set of curtain rods and anchor the bottom of the curtains like rv’s do so you don’t have all that flopping. The breeze thru the windows does help cool the bus on a roadtrip and if it’s a cold day you know real quick if you left a window open. ---------------- From: tcb-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:tcb-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of wuzmop@xxxxxxx Sent: Thursday, December 07, 2006 6:28 AM To: tcb@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [tcb] Re: Still looking for Jalousie windows. I drive on road trips all the time with mine open. Other than the curtain problem Sammy mentioned, I've had no problems. Since you're not going correct, I would suggest making an easily removeable curtain rod so you can take them down on road trips. That is, if you are going with curtains. -----Original Message----- From: eric@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx To: tcb@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Wed, 6 Dec 2006 8:33 PM Subject: [tcb] Re: Still looking for Jalousie windows.
