You have an innovation there that would attract numerous customers, myself included. You're obviously handy with metalworking tools. Do you notice any less stability in the door itself since you borrowed two of its hinges for the screen? Did you pop rivet the hinges to the screen frame? When the camper is folded, does the screen door contact the sinkside A-wall under it? Did you come up with an alternative to the plastic turnbuckle on the upper door (I notice it's gone now) or did you just eliminate it?
