Is there a gasket/seal for a screen door?

I have a 25' 1969 Tradewind. The screen door works fine, except it lets all the Minnesota state birds (mosquitoes) in around its perimeter by the frame. Is there supposed to be a seal or gasket around there or must I just suck it up? If so, what is it called? Thanks.

Weather strip!

We were in Jackson Ctr this past summer and bought screen door weather striping. I cleaned the edge of the screen door then stuck it on. It even made the curves on both ends of the top of the door. Looks great! Cost was $6. Looks clean and neat.

My '72 has a foam gasket around its perimeter.

Most excellent idea for standard hardware store fare. So you put it on the door or the frame? Is it the foam type (thickness?) or the fuzzy bristle type? Thanks for the advice! My hemoglobin level will appreciate it.

Mine is the foam type and it is attached to the door. It is probably about 3/8" wide and thickness is probably between 1/8" and 1/4".

Mine is foam also..kinda black or charcoal gray..works great also cut it in 3 pieces. One piece goes from latch area all the way up and around the top to the other side and down. The other is straight across the bottom..last is from latch area down.

The correct screen door gasket is 5/8 inch wide and 3/8 inch thick. It's gray open cell foam.

Airstream parts stocking dealers have it.

You will need 16 feet of it, which costs less than the shipping.
