So, is it necessary to remove the screen? Can the plexi be placed over? I have a Sandpiper 376BHOK, and would love to do this to our door!

Not necessary to remove the screen but makes it easier to keep clean

The glass could be applied using magnetic tape. This would make it easy to remove and clean.

The lexan can be thin and with some close cutting, fit in the inside groove next to the screen. 3 pieces, top, bottom, and opening next to slide. Easy to do. Measure and use a straight edge. With a razor knife, score one side and simply snap. Sand the edge and pop into position. I used clear mirror mounts with small sheet metal screws. To make the rounded top of the door, I used a large coffee can to score the radius.

I did this in our last 5th wheel but haven't done it in the TH yet. I would remove the screen for easy cleaning and clear view. I installed ours in the groove and then used silicone to seal it up. That way even with the door open in the rain I didn't have to worry about water. I had used clear plexiglass last time but am gonna go with tinted this time.
