Camper shells like these let in a good amount of light, and sometimes all they need is some privacy to transform them into more than just extra storage space. Curtains can provide shade and the humble touch they need to make them more comfortable in which to sleep and camp!

Step 1: Supplies!

Curtain Rod (+mounting hardware and rings), Curtains, Clamps, Twine, O-Ring, Weight
<p>I am trying to recreate your design in my truck, but I am stuck. I cannot find curtain rod hangers/brackets/mounts like the ones you used. All I can find are heavy-duty ones for in homes. Where did you get yours from? Thank you! :)</p>
Mick32164, a friend and I set up her car --it's the same as yours!:)
<p>Put it in my 2004 GMC Sierra today, quick easy &amp; looks great. Gonne try it in Kernville this weekend, river camping with my GF. </p>
<p>This is a great little way to have a truck shell that gives you lots of light but still be able to have shade when you want it. I love your idea to use a combo lock to weigh down the twine over the curtains. Like you said, the twine holds the curtains closer to the windows, and you have a lock if you ever need it. Thanks for the instructions!</p><p>http://www.rhinotopsandtoys.com/products </p>
<p>Great instructions - thank you! I'll add something you may already know, but others might benefit. There are &quot;black-out&quot; fabrics that can be used to make or back curtains, that light will not go through. The curtains I've made for one of my vehicles completely block any light that's on inside; creating obvious advantages. The type I buy is actually white. There are numerous private companies that sell it; I happen to buy it at Harts Fabric in Santa Cruz, California via their on-line store. You can use it all by itself or on either the inside or outside of your curtain fabric, depending on what you want to see from the outside. For example, I'm getting ready to make curtains for my new camper shell which is really dark, so I'll use a dark fabric on the outside and the white &quot;black out&quot; on the inside. Hope this helps and thanks again! </p>
<p>Genius! I never thought of using the window screws to hold the rod. Thank you!</p>
