This modification consists of a form fitting top track from which privacy curtains can be opened or closed that separate the cab seats from the coach area.  The choice of curtain fabric material is entirely up to you.

One other item of note is once this curtain which is full length, ceiling to floor, was installed it made some difference in keeping it cool inside on a hot muggy day.  We don't want to overstate this but it's quite amazing the amount of heat which enters the unit from the front passenger area with the sun beating down.  We still have the small A/C.  One of these days we will upgrade to a larger A/C.

This is a 97RD with the four seats.  We removed both back seats and replaced one with a more comfortable rocker, swivel chair.  Occasionally we put the 4th seat back in but most of the time we just have the rocker behind the drivers seat.

Our solution was a 10' piece of plastic electrical conduit from Home Depot which cost $1.18  We used a router to cut a 1/4" slot.  The balls are  1/2" wood with a small eyelet screwed into a lead hole which we added to the ball with a tiny drill bit. 

We mounded the track right where the molding which houses the upper rear A/C meets the fabric on the ceiling.  We used the same holes and screws which hold the molding.  They are plenty long enough.  We cut the track to length, started in the middle by holding the track up and drilling a small hole through the track to match the hole in the molding/ceiling.  After the first screw was secured we just worked our way to either end.
