Screen door cost for 1971 Sovereign

Hi, I'm looking at possibly purchasing a 1971 Sovereign however it doesn't have a screen door. The bracket is there but no door. Is it possible to find one of these doors and any idea on rough cost?

This unit also has some issues with the awning...a couple of pieces are broken. I believe something to do with the winding mechanism, as well as a piece that bolts to the trailer to hold the awning on. Is it possible to source parts or do you have to find a new awning.

I'm very new to Airstream's so I apologize for the vague description.

Check the classifieds. I saw someone recently selling a screen door out of, I think, a 69. Not sure if that would fit, but it'd be worth checking.

I'm not aware of anyone making reproduction screen doors. You'll need to find someone parting out an Airstream. I'd expect it to cost in the neighborhood of a couple hundred dollars.

Zip Dee still manufactures virtually identical awnings, and parts are still available. I can't recommend a vendor since I haven't bought Zip Dee parts, but you should be able to locate one with some googling.

The Previous Owner of our 71 swapped front door for one from a 72, so I know those years are interchangeable..
