Thumbs up door hinge and screen door

This summer I was lucky to find a 94 CC Affinity in very good shape. I have 2 questions though, does anyone know who would have an entry door hinge and some means of holding the door open. I also need some ideas for a screendoor as it looks like there was no place to mount one.
I installed new airbags as the originals we tired/checking and Rick at Gillig was very helpful.
The coach is older but we will be enjoying it down south for the winter. Have to figure out so problems with the wabasto water system and how to get heat while traveling to the back of the coach.
We had a newer gas coach but appreciated the quality in CC better.

Our Magna uses a gas spring attached to the sidewall above the door frame and also to the top right corner of the odd shaped entry door to keep it in the open position.

I replaced the spring 3 years ago using SPD Hardware online.

SPD-GSNI-5300-20 $15.01

Our screen door frame is quite thin and flimsy.

I tried to order a replacement door from CC in 2002. They could not provide one. So it would need to be built locally if you want one.

I can provide pictures in a few days if interested.

The hinge points of the screen are interspersed with the entry door hinges on the same vertical pin.

We have decided that the major weak point in CC Affinity and Magna of that vintage were the entry door and screen.

Thanks for the info, I looked at the idea of a screen door on the inside of our ft door but there is no room to enclose it. as for the spring shock it would have to be mounted on the outside . Good ideas though.
