    Garage door canvas doors

    Hey everyone, great forum here. We have purchased a 385th that I pick up next week. My wife, daughter and I travel about 7 months a year, and it was time to step up to something nicer than a travel trailer. I have been in a 385th a few times, and for the life of me, I can't ever remember to check out the doors that close off the garage when using the garage door as a patio. Do these doors offer any type of privacy at all, or can you see right through them? If not, has anyone here created a solution for this? Thanks!

    Owners of a 369RL here but have looked at plenty of TH. They are clear but many people here and on the Facebook page have added a curtain of their choice for privacy. Not sure if they have put it on a tension rod or permanent rod. You can probably search both sites for more information. Good luck and welcome to the family!!!

    For our 380 the DW made black panels and they attach with Velcro.

    There are two options at the back ramp door.

    There is a pull down screen kit, and a 3 season door available.

    The 3 season door has removable clear vinyl panels. Some people get tinted vinyl panels made up to put into the door instead of the clear.

    I made my own "3 season" doors out of vanilla bi-fold doors and some 1x3 framing. They provide privacy and were a lot cheaper.

    The clear included panels do have extra hook Velcro sewn in. Went to JoAnn and bought some vinyl and Velcro.. Stopped by home depot for some adhesive.. The Velcro with self adhesive isn't strong enough to hold without bonding with extra adhesive. I do plan on sewing at a later time, but this will do for now. The first night was pretty creeping with the ramp door down and anyone able to look in. So this was the first project and it went pretty good. I do wish GD would have installed a curtain blocking off the living room to the garage or a blank out curtain in the garage to screen door. Also wish I would have noticed this as well..

    Which led to another discovery... none of the windows have a night time shade position. I never thought to look at PDI, this is my 5th rig and all the others had this.. Not the end of the world.. just odd.. the installed shades are okay..Click image for larger version.

    Also a 380TH. We went to Walmart and bought a curtain rod and two drapes on rings. Installed with short screws as the metal up on top is not thick. When not in use pull to side and velcro to side wall. The standard lengths are a little short however the bottom 4 inches usually would not need to be covered.
