How Do I Make Curtains for a Truck Camper?

Making curtains for a truck camper can be a relatively easy and inexpensive way to spruce up the interior of your camper. It adds privacy, insulation, and a personal touch to your living space.

There are several different materials that can be used to make curtains, as well as many different styles and colors.

The first step in making curtains for a truck camper is to measure the windows that you want to cover. You will need the exact measurements (width and length) of the window in order to purchase fabric that fits correctly. Make sure to double check your measurements before you buy any fabric.

Once you have determined what size of fabric you need, decide on the type of fabric you would like for your curtains. Heavy fabrics such as denim or canvas are great for providing insulation from both heat and cold temperatures. Lightweight fabrics such as cotton or linen are more suitable for providing privacy but may not provide much insulation.

When selecting colors or patterns for your curtains, think about the overall look of your camper’s interior. Choose colors that complement the décor of your living space and make it feel more inviting. You can even get creative with it by mixing different colors and patterns together for a unique look.

The next step is to cut out pieces of fabric according to your window measurements and sew them together into panels. If you are not confident in your sewing abilities, there are plenty of tutorials available online that will help guide you through the process.

Once all of your panels are constructed, it’s time to hang them up!

Most truck campers have small windows so it is best to use small curtain rods or tension rods that can easily fit inside the window frame without blocking any light coming in from outside. Once installed, all that’s left is to add some decorative touches such as tassels or fringe along the edges of the curtain panels.

Making curtains for a truck camper is an easy way to add some style and personality to its interior while also providing some much needed privacy and insulation from hot or cold temperatures. With just a few simple steps, anyone can transform their living space into something more comfortable and welcoming.


Making curtains for a truck camper is an easy way to upgrade its interior with minimal effort. From measuring windows accurately, choosing fabric wisely, cutting out panels correctly, installing curtain rods securely – each task plays an important role in creating custom-made curtains that provide both privacy and insulation while adding style and personality at the same time!
