Replacing screen

I'm not one for opening windows,I replaced the screen in my door with clear vinyl it's like leaving your door open without the dust.

I think quite a few of us have done the same - I know I have on my last two coaches and so have some friends. Given that there are more days that are either hot or cool, as opposed to "just right", a plexiglass or acrylic door panel is more useful than a screen.

The ideal solution would be a combo of the two, such is available for stick houses. I have one at home with a roll-up vinyl panel that slides over the screen and wish I could get a similar one for the RV. It is reasonably light and doesn't require storing a separate door panel.

I have put plexi glass on the inside of my screen and it acts like a storm door. The plexi glass is removable when screens only are desired. Here is a terrible photo , but it shows what I did. There are three sections to my door and I did all three.

We did the same thing but used Command Stips to hold the plexiglass. Our reason was we travel with a cat and this allows him to see everything thats going on outside, but keeps him from tearing the screen.

I LOVE THIS! I so want the plexi glass but don't know how to do it. We need a storm door more than a screen door ... but we do want the ability to interchange and have both. of course, right? Want to have it all ...
