Default Question on Front Curtain Trak Fasteners

Would anybody know what is the name or type of Rivet/Fastener that is used by RoadTrek to secure the front privacy curtains track?

Just thought I'd post the photo:



Looks like a rivet with a flat head. Is there a backing washer?
That headliner is soft stuff.

Wish I could be of more help.........

They look like pop rivets but the shaft is cut in 4 places so it spreads out more than a regular rivet.

There is no back washer on them, and yes the headliner material is soft.

Some sort of a blind "peel" rivet like this:

Banana peel rivet


I'd call RT - they might just put a few in an envelope and mail them to you Ron.
Or call an RT dealer - hopefully they have some in stock.

On the passenger side, we have several "loose" fasteners that don't seem to be locked into anything, consequently, they sag somewhat. Does anyone with a Roadtrek have this problem and if so, what did you do about it? If I got some new fasteners, would they be long enough to be secure?
