Screen Door Mod Suggestions/Ideas

I am looking to make this screen door into a window panel door ... but removable window panels when I want only the screen door. Am I asking too much?? Is it possible? Thoughts? Click image for larger version

note to above post, my hubby & I stink at DIY. We’d seriously tear up the door - and Lord knows what else - if someone suggest we “screw a piece of plastic paneling over it”... So, yeah. That’s not happening.

There is this option:
Product Details | RV Door Buddy

or you can try to find a set of LCI vinyl panels. They came standard on my Cedar Creek.

In either case, you will have to install the retaining clips. If your KSA’s are not up to that I suggest you contact a good RV shop, not a dealer, and pay the man.

this may not be what you're looking for, but it won't hurt to consider it, we love these, ... we covered the screen doors with clear vinyl with the same thoughts, "what if we want to remove it", ... but after three yrs have not had a reason or desire to do so, ... most of our days are either winter or summer, plus we have windows with screens for ventilation if desired, ... end results is a full panel "storm door", ... we love being able to have the doors(2 doors, did both) open for the light, plus viewing, without losing heat or cool, ... link below is to the thread about this idea and with more details and pics, ....


Full panel "Storm Door"

I bought plexiglass and cut to size. Installed with industrial strength Velcro to the inside of the screen door leaving the screen in place. The bottom stays always as the dog will put his paws on it and would damage the screen. The upper piece comes on/off with the weather.

I went to Lowes with measurement of door panels and had them cut plexiglass to fit. They gave me the small piece for cheap from a leftover piece they had. I had to trim the rounded corners of the top section. There is a channel on 3 sides around screen and the plexiglass slides into that lip and I can take out if needed. I don't think I have take out as of yet. I am thinking of installing a clip to hold in the 4th side where there is not a channel. Good Luck!

I did Lexan for the top and bottom sections of the screen door about 6 years ago and they’re still doing a great job. Furnace or air conditioners on.....doesn’t matter. Now we leave the main door open sun up to sun down....giving us floor to ceiling uninterrupted view outdoors.

There’s enough other windows in our rig with screening if we want fresh air circulating throughout.....never have removed the Lexan all this time except for occasional cleaning. They’re in place and have stayed in place with these

I purchased Lexan to make the clear covers for the doors on my TT but just need someone to help me with the cutting part! I know I will love having the covers on the doors as well as I really like to have the outer doors open but the weather in MI is such that its either hot or chilly so don't want just screens in the doors.
