We just got home from Escapade in Sedalia, MO. We had a great time and learned a lot and met some great people. There were even a few bus conversions there beside ours.

Now I've been tasked with creating a screen door for the entry door on our MC9!?  Has anyone done this?  Any ideas on how to do it? Pics and suggestions are welcome.

TIA

Hmmm,
I've never done it, but I have wished for one. What about fiberglass or fabric screen with a finished edge, something flexible, and velcro fasteners?

I saw some screen curtains at HD for around $20.

LVMCI: can you post any pics? Not sure what you mean "green box to cover my doorway".

If you come up with something classy you should make a kit - I'll buy one!  Thought about this a lot, and have no good ideas yet...

Don't do it...we did. It ripped off and fell apart after a week. Trust me on this. Worked like a charm, but was built poopy. Sad

The pull down ones from HD might work. They screw to the top and you can cut for length and trim screen. sides could attach with velco or magnets somehow. They have another one that rollup to the side and you just pull it out and hook on other side.
