Have a few questions about RV shower curtains? I’ll do my best to answer a few common questions here….
1.Why is it important to have a shower curtain for your RV?
In RV showers there can be a LOT of water spray, especially if you have little ones. Without a shower curtain or glass door, water could spray water all over your bathroom.
In a normal house, this might not matter so much, but in a camper, it certainly does.
Minimizing water spray and after-shower puddles is really important to reduce overall moisture and condensation in your camper. You want to make sure as much water stays in your shower stall as possible.
Even a little bit of excess moisture on the walls, floors, or linens can cause mold and mildew in a small space like a camper, so a good RV shower curtain is a must-have for camper owners.
2.What are the different types of shower curtains that I can use in my RV?
The good news is that many recreational vehicles can use a regular shower curtain as long as they can fit onto your curtain rod, but you will need to make sure the curtain you choose is the right length.
Some are too long for the average RV shower, so you need to make sure to buy a shorter length or manually take it up to stop it from being a tripping hazard, accidentally plugging the shower drain, or getting water all over the floor (which is what you’re trying to avoid). For smaller RVs, or if you find that regular curtains don’t fit right in your camper, you may need to special order a curtain or consider glass shower doors.
3. How do I clean a shower curtain?
Most RV shower curtains can be thrown in the washing machine, but you may need to wash them in cold water (although you should check the washing instructions to be sure).
You can also tumble dry most curtains, but they need to be dried on cool as many are made of polyester. Plastic shower or vinyl shower curtains should not be put in the dryer and should be hung out to dry instead.
4. What is the best way to store a camper shower curtain when not in use?
When you are storing your shower curtain, you need to make sure it is fully dry before packing it away. This ensures no mildew or mold can grow on your curtains and ruin them. Vacuum packing them is a good idea, however, you can just fold them and keep them in a closet, camping cabinet, or storage bin.
5. What are the pros and cons of each type of shower curtain?
Shower curtains are made of different types of materials but there are pros and cons of having them in an RV.
Plastic shower curtains (or vinyl) are a good option as they are a water repellent fabric so it ensures all the water stays in the shower area, however, it can be toxic, especially in small environments like an RV.
A fabric curtain may be an option but keep in mind they are not made from water repellent fabric, could trap moisture, and can contribute to condensation levels in your RV.
6. Can you make your own camper shower curtain?
If you love to DIY, you can easily make a polyester shower curtain by buying a few yards of polyester (or your favorite quick dry fabric) and curtain hooks. Hem up the top of the curtain and the bottom, snap on the curtain clips, and you have a new shower curtain!
Here is a tutorial for ring clip drapes that I think it could work well for a shower curtain too.
And as for where to hang your beautiful DIY creation, a curved rod will give you a spacious feeling if there’s enough space. If space is tight you may want to look into a tension rod.
Tips For Buying A New RV Shower Curtain
- Make sure you buy the right size curtain or correct amount of material by measuring the RV shower stall
- Check to see if you need a shower curtain liner or not. A regular curtain may or may not need a liner, so be sure to check that before purchasing.
- Choose a fast-drying shower curtain or material to reduce moisture in your RV. Fabrics like cotton can be a good choice for a household shower but are not necessarily good for RV life.
- Be sure to look at the cleaning instructions as some curtains might not be machine washable.
- Don’t forget the shower curtain hooks if needed.
- Have fun! Let your style and creativity shine through and create the beautiful RV you’re envisioning!
Last Thoughts About Shower Curtains For Your RV
Choosing the right shower curtain for your RV is actually an important decision. You want to make sure to buy a curtain that fits properly, is made from the least toxic material, will not add to the moisture level in your camper, and be somewhat easy to wash and keep clean (’cause nobody wants to do more laundry or cleaning).
And don’t forget that it needs to match your RV decor!
I hope these shower curtain options have helped to narrow down your choices and made your decision easier.
