Lowes or Home Depot will have the fiberglass screen fabric, the spline that hold the fabric in the frame, the spline tool to force the spline in, and "universal" DIY frame kits.

Is the old frame just damaged or is it missing completely?

If its damaged, you can fabricate another easily by cutting the corner out of the old frame and using them with straight sections of channel from a DIY kit.

If its missing, you may find it difficult to replace the (generally very rounded) corner profile; time to call a salvage yard like Colaw's or get creative.

1. Tell your son to find what he lost.

2. Tell your son to replace what he lost.

3. Order new ones from sources like have been already listed, and have your son pay for them.

4. Create new ones, with kits from Home Depot as an example, (ask in the widow department) and have your son come with you, buy the parts and put them together.

5. Tell your son that his inheritance and all the grand parent duty to his children depends on his making your RV bug proof again.

The options are almost limitless. You need not stop at my first 5 suggestions.

Good Luck.

Lots of truck top or shell dealers have sources for custom ones as they often get lost.

Check with them.

I have all the screens from my previous motorhome. It was a 1989 fleetwood southwind. If you let me know the measurement and I have it, it's yours
