rear door shower curtain installation advice?

I bought the sprinter shower curtain rear door enclosure from SMB, but am having a hard time extracting instructions for installation from them (or getting a callback at all from service).

It appears I'll be sinking some screws into the doors for the tabs, but that location of the tabs will matter for fit and function. So I would welcome any and all input from those who have done it, and/or pictures of those installed by SMB itself.

Thanks!
Mike

Forget the curtain. Wear a skimpy swimsuit while showering. Much less hassle and you get just as clean.

If the curtain rod is made out of metal and since the doors are made out of metal how about some neodymium magnets?
It's what I do when an outdoor shower is needed.

Night works for me.
I didn't mean to be silly with in first reply with the bathing suit remark. Like many SMB owners I went crazy trying to get all the goodies and have tried two different shower curtain solutions. They both work just fine as long as there isn't any wind in which case you spend too much time pushing the curtain back. Then there's the issue with reaching somewhere to find the soap and or shampoo without getting the back of the van wet. After that the curtain must be dried and packed away so more time is spent setting up and taking down the curtain then actually showering. I have a shower head extension and a wooden grate to stand and put my soap(s) on.

If we are at a regular campground we use the public showers. If not available there is most likely no one around that will care if you are showering in your bathing suit. Lot less work in my opinion...

Best two showering experiences ever for me (at least by myself)

1. On the rear swim platform of a 90ft sailboat anchored in Costa Rica or anywhere warm.
2. Back of our van on the beach backed up facing the Sea of Cortez

Balmy warm breeze. Clothing was optional. No curtain needed.

We use a Lightspeed Outdoors Xtra Wide Quick Set Up Privacy Tent, Toilet, Camp Shower, Portable Changing Room with a wooden grate on the floor. Pops up about as fast as it takes to put up the curtain and is more versatile. Sometimes we use it as a "garage" to minimize clutter inside the van. But it is one more thing to lug around.

OMG now you're just either a) Bragging or 2) Showing off, no pun intended!

The right company in either situation would just be icing on the cake---good gravy that sounds like Nirvana and Valhalla all at one time!

BTW just so I don't look dumb my "a & 2" numeration above is courtesy of one Paul Buchman aka Paul Reiser from the TV show Mad About You.

Well, REF was there for #2.. is that what you consider the right company?

I generally just shower in my dirty boxers. Hey the coming off as soon as I’m clean so no big deal if they’re wet. But then you have to be comfortable in your underwear in public.

"right company" is completely subjective..............

Sounds like a solid plan to me!
