How do your windows open?  My 5C has one sliding window, passenger side near the front, and I removed the slide locks so it would slide farther open, and made a screen permanently mounted on the outside of that window frame.  It's only one window, but being at the table it is very nice.  On the bedroom windows I had really poorly done inside screens kind of glued around the frame by the PO, and I would pop the emergency latch and prop it open, it hinged at the top.  I installed Motion sliding windows in the bedroom after a year of hating the propping up of the windows.

MC-9 windows tilt out..

they are emergency windows.. so the entire window just tilts out and up.. I can open all my windows ( 6) and put a prop to hold them open..

We have velcro on the window frame portion that would be open once you slide the window forward. It seems to work real well, but I plan to modify it to work a bit better.

We also have Velcro glued to the inside frames and screening cut to shape with the Velcro sewn on.  It does its job. I leave the screens in place and peel them back a little to open and close the windows.  I consider it a minor nuisance but worth the effort.

I can't help on window but this screen for the door works well for us. It doesn’t go all the way to the bottom of the door but the bugs haven't ever figured that out. LOL

Bruiser, when I had my eagle we had the same problem,, Went to home depot bought screen track and screen, made to fit openin g,  when we opened the window we would just set them in place, remove to close,  They sell frame and corners to make your own,  pretty cheap if I remember correctly,  Since I bought the prevost ,Ijust put a sign up telling them bugs to BUG OFF,  they know better now,,,,,,,,,..LOL...........
