We visited Advanced last summer and they were doing a retrofit for Class B then but I think its quite expensive as they have to build and fit the opening each manufacturer has.

I spoke to several staff at the Roadtrek exhibit at last years Hershey PA RV show and their comment was this. They have visited at various RV shows around the country other manufacturers who install the sliding door screen and they have found that by the end of the RV rally all of them have been broken in some way. Whether it was just off the track or broken they felt that for a 4 or 5 day RV show that in itself was a great test-track so they are presently not planning on installing them.

If Roadtrek would only offer the extended body, we'd probably own one of their E-treks instead of our Airstream.

I found this on Amazon. This was, I believe, the Bug-Off Screen that Maggie had mentioned in another thread. Comes in various sizes. It's cheap. Probably worth a try!

Amazon.com: Bug Off Instant Screen, 32-Inch by 80-Inch: Patio, Lawn & Garden

This is exactly what we have, altho not this brand and ours was only $20-$25.

I'll see what I can find to post.

We have used ours many times, and it works great. It does look added-on , but we don't really care.

It looks nice enough, and we're happy with it.

Finally found the thread with this info in it.

Ours is from bugoffscrren.com, was $50, not $20-$25, and is 48"x"70".

So, the $38 on the previous post is a good price.

Sorry for the delay and confusion.


Maggie

I cannot speak to installing one in an Interstate, but I have a friend who bought one and uses it at her house, and I was surprised by how well it worked - exactly like advertised. And it was holding up to the comings and goings of kids and pets. As I was reading through this thread I was thinking it seemed like a pretty good solution.

The screening is actually very sturdy, plus the whole thing rolls up nicely and stores under a rear bench.

The screen has effectively deterred bees and flies. Has yet to be held to the real test.....mosquitoes.

I suspect these critters, and no-see-ums...which are particularly persistent in their pursuit of human flesh...will require closing the door.

Still, an inexpensive door covering which allows us to enjoy the ventilation that having that sliding door open provides.

Can you close the sliding door with the screen in place?

The no-see-ums should be out soon. A week from tomorrow I am leaving for a week in northern Florida. I'll let you know how it holds up for those pesky rascals.

That is if I can get out of the drive way. Sunday we are in for .7 inches of ice and temps in the teens until the day we (my wife, two wire coat doxies and me) leave.

No.

We just take it down once we are in for the night.

The screen opens in the center, held closed there by magnetic tabs, attaches at the sides with bits of velcro tape.

We have something similar for the rear door opening, attaches with velcro tape all around and zips up the center.

No, he won't. I don't know about their breeding habits; I'm not an insect voyeur, so even when they leave the blinds open, I don't watch them!
