Inland RV. Part # 34658. I'm pretty sure it is the same as my Argosy.

Inland RV does have them. They are called fuzzies! Isn't that a wonderful word? Ordered some several years ago. Not hard to install either.

WOW! I found a price of $8.50 each (X4 per window, X8 windows) can out really pricy. They must have been selling at 10' lengths or something... We ended up using a custom fuzzy replacement that worked great and was free.

Zep,
I am not sure if this will work with all window arms but for the years like our 1979, it should work fine. We took the solar screen material that we did the screening with (which is nylon), cut strips 1.5" X 1" over the height of the slots. Took each strip and folded it in half and using hot glue, attached one strip to each side of each slot and overlapped each folded edge by about 1/2". This allows the flat window arm to slide through without any gaps for the bugs to enter.

Photo of the front of the screen slot:

My window arms aren't flat, but I'm going to copy your home-made fuzzy directions. = )

Tru fax...

Ours were all worn out and being new to vintage trailering when one fell out at me recently I thought it was some kind of nasty bug and started doing the ick-get-it-off me dance.

Fortunately no video cameras were present.
