Guess you gotta call. Sorry. Vendors rules at AIR do not allow quoting of prices. History says this is the best policy.

I am looking for info about the screen door latch. When the main door is open, how do you secure the screen door (ONLY) to the frame of the motorhome? I have searched home improvement stores and I can't find anything that will work. They have screen latches but the product doesn't take into consideration that when we do close the main door there is only a small space between the main door and screen door. Help is desperately needed as we leave next week and we do not want to add any mosquitoes as quest!!!:-)))

I fixed my problem with a little piece of chain and a hook. My door looks like AZFlycasters (without the big hole in the bottom screen ) I drilled a small hole in the plastic sliding part and attached about 8" of chain so that the sliding plastic cannot be opened wide enough for our cat to slip through but we can still reach the inside screen door latch with our fingers.

The chain is gold, small, and came in a kit with four hooks (actually 25' of chain) from Home Depot. The little bolt is about 1/8" (maybe smaller) with a hex nut.

I hook the hook to the inside "sissy handle" on the left of the entry door.

Just to let you know, the hole in the screen has been repaired. I added a shield to prevent it from happening again!

The latch for the screen door on our Argosy is on the inside, it is just an ordinary screen door latch that holds it closed but can be pushed upen from the inside. I'll take pictures tomorrow. By the way, I found a screen door fastener that looks just like the one that Andy has, at Home Depot for under $5. We haven't installed it yet but I am sure it will work, I will have to open the mosquito guard to reach inside and open it, but no problem there.

The mosquito guard on our door was long gone, and it is a small size that we can't find at the RV stores, so I made one. Remembering the one on my old Spartan, which was just an aluminum slider, I made one like that out of some left over aluminum flashing, slipped it into the channel and it works fine. If it gets torn up, well, I have a roll of about 5' of flashing and I'll just make another one.

Our web site is a "sale list" only.

I saw one of these on a wrecked Airstream at Colaw's, it is actually used to hold the screen door to the outside door and would be too long to use to fasten the screen door itself closed, at least for ours. There is really no good place to screw it to on the screen door. Nice piece, tho, operates very smoothly. The one we bought at Home Depot is about half the size of that one.

Finally! Pictures! And a screen guard from Colaw's: No escaping cat from these!

I picked mine up at Oasis RV in Tucson. Any well supplied Airstream dealer should carry the part. There are actually two pieces. The one in the picture and a smaller one for the top screen. I did not install the top one.

I also install an additional latch, like the one that Andy has pictured. The dogs are now secure in the trailer.

Thank you.
I have one of those small guards laying around the garage too.
I think I'll bring it to the next rally and give it away there.

I tried a couple of Airstream dealer's "online" parts depts for the big guard but didn't get very far.
Guess I'll actually have to use a telephone!

I ordered one of those latches last night.
