Question Replace window screens

In addition to my Caravel I have a 1954 22' Silver Streak Clipper. I want to replace my window screens but I am unsure of the technique and/or tools to do this. Can anyone offer information as to procedure and/or special tool needed. Any help will be appreciated. I do not have spline inserts - this trailer uses another method. Thanks, Marc.

What kind of frames does it have. Spline inserts?

If so just go to the big-box home center and they will have everything you need. Sceening, tool and rubber spline.

No spline inserts

I don't have spline inserts. I have done those before on a motor home. These are different. I've never seen this sort of setup before. If you know of anyone who has a Silver Streak Clipper, perhaps they might know. We really appreciate your input - thank you for answering. Marc

My Father-in-law has a Silver Streak, but I am not sure if it is a Clipper. I'll have the wife ask him tomorrow during her daily phone call.

Wink Yes Please

Yes, that would be great. I suppose it should be a old Silver Streak because it's old technology I'm dealing with. I will take some digital photos of the area and post them sometime this week on this site. Thanks again, Marc.

Question Pictures of '54 Silver Streak Clipper Window Screens

I have attempted to do as John suggested and take digital pictures of the window screens that I need to replace in my 1954 22' Silver Streak Clipper.
Picture #1 is of the overall type of window.
Picture #2 is a closeup of the upper right hand corner of the window.
Picture #3 is a closeup of the curved metal frame that the mesh wraps around. As you can see, the mesh is torn at the edge.
Picture #4 is more of the same and so is Picture #5.

If you use Microsoft Picture It or Kodak Picture Software I believe you can Zoom in to get a really good look as the shape of this frame.

It is not the type (I don't believe) that uses a normal screen tool with beading.

Has anyone used a tool for this type of trailer or perhaps one of a similar vintage? If so, can one still be purchased or would it need to be fabricated? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Marc
