Since I have original windows, I do not have fixed screens.  I have used a removable method that I do not like.  I have seen retractable window screens on house windows.  The screen is on a roller like a shade, and the sides are in guide tracks.  Has anyone used or researched these?  If so, which brand did you find adapts best?  Thanks

My bus has the same situation.The PO glued Velcro to the window frame and cut out some plastic screen to fit. It's not the best looking but it works really well.

Tom,

I've seen that done, and it's one of the options.  I thought that these retractable ones might work.  The first link shows the concept.  The second one is an inexpensive kit.

There Is a co. in the state of Washington that has very nice bus windows. This is where I bought mine, they are therm o pane sliders, and are tinted. I can not think of the name of the co. but I'm sure someone on here will know.

No doubt Peninsula Glass windows are great, but I am just looking for an easy installation, easy to use, and easy on the pocket screen solution.  If the retractable ones could be adapted, they would be nice.  I was hoping someone else had already done the experimentation.

Go to www.rollaway.com and take a look at what they have. I am keeping a few opening windows on my Prevost for escape but also want some fresh air on occasion so I am going to purchase these to keep the bugs out. If you do a Google search (roll up window screens) it also comes up with other possibilities.
Good Luck! Smiley Smiley Smiley
