Re: how do you cover that big window?

We made a frame out of thin conduit. It wraps around the windshield and both the driver's side and passenger side windows( our door has been relocated). The two halves of the curtain just slide on the conduit and meet in the middle of the windshield.

Re: how do you cover that big window?

I'm planning on putting curtains behind the drivers seat straight over to the post by the door. As the drivers seat doesn't swivel I can't really see a need to include it in the floor plan at night.
