Magic Mesh Instant Screen Door-good or bad?

Saw this last night at the Pet Store. Noticed that Bed Bath carries it for $14.99 (before coupons). Some reviewers like it, while others say that it falls apart. Has anyone ever used it in their RV? Any ideas?

I have one at home and it works great. I paid 19.99 at Canadian Tire and it lasted all summer. Works as advertised and our dog uses it with no problems. Even if it fell apart after a summer's use, still worth the money .

I looked into one of these as well and I was scared away by the comments. My biggest concern was with someone getting their foot wrapped around the material and tripping as they were walking out the door.

We have one on our trailer and love it. Can go in and out without the constant slamming of door? Plus, it lets in more fresh air. I would recommend it.

Do you have a picture of yours by any chance? I'd love to see how that looks.

I bought a Magic Mesh screen door and tailored it to fit my A-frame. I am definitely happy with how this product works....because it is tailored to the doorway width and heighth, there is no danger of tripping on excess....and it looks great, too!

I posted pics in a similar thread but they are turned sideways...cant seem to post them right side up...sigh...

works as advertised. The important thing about having it work correctly is to have the top of the screen correct. The dogs were scared of it at first, now they love it.
