Where to find fixation for mosquito net ?

Hello,

I'm looking for fixations for mosquito net because all my "tubes" are broken, see photo :



Where can I find the fixations please ?

What do you think if I change the color of this ? I think about blue nets... instead the green from original ?

Thank you

I've bought screen (it's actually plastic these days), and the plastic beading at Home Depot and Lowe's. Take a sample of the original stuff with you because there are different sizes. You will also need the special roller tool.

Ooops, now I see you are in France. Over there, I don't know.

In the USA, the mosquito netting is called window screen and the tube is called widow screen spline. These materials are available at almost any hardware store.

Thank you for your answers at the moment !

No problem, I can make an order in USA, I've bought the Airstream in Texas, I can buy spare parts.

I've already made orders in USA for my Aistream.

Thank you for the right words ! I've looked for mosquito net in the forum, I haven't found many threads, I'm trying with these new words !

Very good the Ultra view screen !

You should be able to find these materials where you live. They are not special for Airstream. A shop that sells materials to repair houses (in French "quincaillerie" ?)should have the materials.

I thought that they were special to Airstream,

Yes, you're right, quincaillerie is the word in french ! congratulations

Thank you !

I've measured how much meters I have to order of screen spline and I measured 18 meters... ( around 60 feet...). It seems very much but I've already tried to count again...

There are about 3 or 4 different diameters of spline. Take a piece of the old spline with you to when you go. You will need a special spline tool to make the installation easier.

Oh, ok I didn't know that I needed this tool...

At the moment I hope an answer from Airstream parts supplier for this spline.

As soon as I have enough time, I'm lookinf for the spline in a "quicaillerie"

Thank you again for your advice !
