Screen Doors Solution?

Has anyone found a screen door idea for the entry doors? We would love to have the doors open during the summer months.

Sorry everyone I thought I posted this in the Aviator Forum... the Aviators do not have screen doors btw. Super frustrating trying to find screens that will work with the curved doors.

I think you got the right forum but I am still do not see why it did not come with a screen door.

The door being curved makes it even more important for the factory to provide screen doors.

I know what you mean about the lack of a screen door. It bothered me at first and I missed the little pass-thru most RV screen doors have. Now I never give it any thought. The Max Air fans move a lot of air and the big windows keep the trailer feeling open. If you come up with a door that will work let us know. In the meantime, you may be able to use one of the magnetic "magic screens" that make an instant although temporary screen door if you really decide you want one.

Surprisingly, those work pretty well. Saw one on a used camper at a dealer lot. Went through it a few times and it worked just like they advertise.

I plan to try out the magic screen next week on our mini vacation/fishing trip. I will let yall know how it works out! My only issue with the magic screen is my chihuahua can run out anytime she would want. A door would be way better I think

Look forward to hearing how it works for you this weekend. I suppose you could get a doggy gate in front of screen so your pet can't escape.

My wife cMe up with using a curtain sheer on a spring rod added magnetic stip on floor and bottom of sheer. Used Velcro buttons on sides work well to keep out bugs. Ours is a 13 elecra.

We have been very happy with our screen door solution. We ordered a "Bug Off" custom screen from * Screens, Screen Doors, Bug Off Instant Screen Door - Instant walk through, magnetic screen door - screen curtain - custom screens available *. If you are interested in doing the same, the sizing option is:

- CUSTOM SCREEN (CENTER OPENING) 22"- 36" in width and UP TO 86" in height (Includes Rod, 8 Hook/Loop, 2 Magnet Sets)
- And the measurements we used are 31 1/2 X 72

The total cost for us (for one screen):

Subtotal 59.95
Shipping Cost (BUG OFF S/H) 9.95
Tax (CA-SAN LUIS OBISPO 7.5%) 4.50
Total $74.40

It is a perfect fit, however we did one little hack to it. I had an upholstery guy sew industrial strength velcro all along the top since there is no place for the spring rod. The same upholstery guy is going to create a snap-button valance for us so we can cover the top of the screen and remove the screen during the colder months.
