Window screen corners

I have a skyline/Layton/Lite 16ft camper. I just purchased and have found out that skyline is no longer in business. The screens in my camper windows have these plastic corners on all 4 sides and they all appear to be dry rotted. I was in the process of cleaning the windows when I took the first screen out and of course the plastic corners just crumbled.
I searched the internet for these screen corners but no luck. Anyone know where I could get some of these ?

Thanks
Dennis

Dennis, any chance you could post a picture of your corners, a complete one would be the most use. From a picture , someone my be able to give you the window makers name, to speed up your search.
OK. ED and I were typing at the same time , I'm just slower.

Most new house window screens are made this way.

Check with your local hardware store. They should have some you can use.

I had the same problem with my screens. The only place I couls find them was at the Manufacturer ans at about 5 times the cost of the ones on line. But as the wife say's, "Yea the other ones are cheaper, but they wont fix the screens".
If you try your local hardware stores ect., take a piece of the aluminum rail with you to be sure of the fit.

My son owns a custom screen and storm window company, and repairs a lot of the cheap made plastic corner screens. That's why he uses aluminum corners in his screens.

A good hardware store will make a new screen from scratch, cheap. Hopefully you know of a traditional one near you.
