We took out our screen door and put in a "Magic Mesh" door. So far it's pretty nice.

How would I get it to fit since the Magic Mesh is for a regular size door???

It will be more expensive than an assembly line built door, but finding a 30 year old screen door might be a challenge.

Some areas have an RV shop that buys up excess inventory. RV Doctor George is in the Sacramento area.

RV Doctor George
+1 Dean, +1.

Large Fuzzy Dogs took care of mine hearing 'some thing' pass the home one night. No contest with close to 210 pounds of 'excited' Poochies.


Home after the trip, took (what was left off) and took it to a local screen shop (Medford, Or) and had a rebuild (from scratch) the next day. Cost about $95.00 (if memory serves) but they had to start from scratch.

You could cut it to fit, but we just left the excess width in place and stored the excess length at the top behind a covering. See photos.

As I say, it works ok, but seems cheaply made. It is much better than the bulky screen door we had and the complicated handle. I kept getting my clothes caught on the screen door handle.

There are gaps but so far the insects haven't been a problem. We haven't' tried it during summer in a high insect area though.

It is a much cheaper alternative and we actually prefer it to the regular door.

Do you have pets (Dog/Cat) that can run in and out.. If yes, stop reading now.

If no,, Check out that new "Magic mesh" Door which can be found in the "As Seen On TV" section of many stores including some wal-marts and Publisher's Clearing House.

To make it easy, here is a link to them:
https://www.buymagicmesh.com/


Now if you have cats or dogs, they are supposed to be able to run through those doors so it's a bad idea.. But on paper this thing looks great, a door you do NOT have to pen and close,, Just step through.

Just a thought about those gaps... I have a couple of rolls of "Magnetic Tape" here, I can peal and stick and it will hold small tools and such (So long as I'm not bouncing down Washboard Road) Would addition of such tape, in addition to the 18 magnets already there, help close those gaps.

Kind of like the magnetic seal on a refrigerator door.

Interesting thought. My DW used to have yards (miles?) of the stuff from her business but we got rid of it when we downsized to go full time.
