You have the right installation answer.

Take the old stuff off, and attach two pieces of the fuzzy seal on each side with a good adhesive (not glue), pull off the extra white thread and your done.

It takes 40 inches per screen, 2 x 20 inches on each side.

Our "sale" list on our web site is exactly that.

We carry over 3200 Airstream repairs parts in stock, far too many to put on a web site.

My slots don't seem anywhere near that long where I would need 2x20" for each side, unless I'm missing something.

You "must" install the fuzzy a little above and below the slots, which takes 2 x 10 inches. Anything less and you will have a problem with the installation.

If your screens do not require 20 inches per side, then they are not Airstream screens.

Measure them, and post that measurement.

you need a strip on either side of the slot. 2 strips per slot, 2 slots per screen. "4x10" might better describe it.

its like 2 brush heads, facing each other, with the window arm sliding in between them.

It takes 2 strips of fuzzy, on each side, as per Airstreams production, since the lift arm slides "between" the two pieces.

Actually Airstream uses more that 2 x 12 inches on each side as per the attached photo's, of a brand new screen.

10 inches of fuzzy times two on each side, gives a 1/4 inch overlap, which works fine.

However if you want to use more than a 1 inch overlap at the top and bottom of each
slot such as Airstream does, that's OK too.

Yep! Just did mine this summer, and surprisingly, they look like pictures andy's posted! Working great too! One of those "not too expensive" projects that create much greater comfort!

I did all of my screens last summer. The job didn't take too long at all. This is a job well worth it.

Could you use some other material, perhaps rubber seal or neoprene, instead of the fuzzy seal?

Cathy.

The fuzzy seal fibers, completely surround the lift arms.

Airstream tried a vinyl seal in 1969, and it was a joke.

The rubber seals, most likely will not surround the lift arms, as well as in time, as the rubber hardens, it will leave gaps around the lift arms.

What is the name of the fuzzy stuff. You all talk about it but I can't figure out the name of the part. Part 34658 at InLand RV does not look like the part posted on 6-19-06. I have a 27ft Overlander 1973 and need the correct fuzzy stuff for my screens.
