Screened Doors

Stephanie,

Here are a couple of links that Pete posted before. One is for a Boler and the other for a Scamp. I think either could be adapted for use on your Burro.

Scamp Screened Door

I'm planning on making one for my Casita one of these days, but in the meantime, I am using a small spring rod with a lace curtain.

Trillium Screen Door

Here is the screen door I made for our Trillium. It folds against the closet out of the way, when not in use. When using it there are two spring-loaded catches that hold it flat open as a regular sized door.
Easy to make and cost around $30.
Nancy

Screen Door Mod

Nancy D:

Now that's about the best modification for a screen door that I have seen online in past three years. I can see where you took the original idea.
http://www.geocities.com/bolerama/screendoor.html
Using the inner frame, modified the door to make it fold-away. Which is very beneficial is such a limited space. And make it still available to leave the door open to enjoy the fresh air.

I was consider making a snap-on screen using snaps, and making it
roll up out of the way. Now, I'm having second thoughts. I wanted to be able to make and have a screen door, and be able to make a front bed extension as illustrated on Bolerama: http://www.geocities.com/bolerama/frontbed...dextension.html

Thanks for the compliment. We are pleased with it.

Ray
We used a curtain made of screen for two years. It was satisfactory but often left gaps.

Yes this door is a modification of the one on Bolerama but we did not want a full sized door sticking into the trailer when it is not needed. The door originally was to be a bifold but it didn't slide smoothly. This way is much better and it opens and closes and folds, perfectly.

Nancy,
Thanks for posting the pictures. That door looks awesome!! I can't wait to put one in mine. Did you build the frame yourself, or did you happen to find bi-fold doors that you could cut to fit your doorway? Thanks again!

Hi Stephanie
Yes I built the frame myself. It"s made of 1"x2" sides, bottom is 1"x6", middle and tops are 1x4. Doors were easy to make, glued, clamped and screwed together. Hardest part was getting the frame cut to match the curve of the TT.

Stephanie,
I think you may have to register with yahoo to get in there.
I really havn't been there in a while. I think that site is almost dead.

What a beautiful door. I can't believe you built this for $30. We will have to try and imitate. They say that is the most sincere flattery.

I know this is from 2003 but I was hoping you could post the pics again because the links no longer work.

Lyndsay, unfortunately we lost all the pictures posted prior to the Big Hack of 2005. Legacy Posts is the name given to the posts/threads we were able to recover, but they came back with no pictures.

Without more information, it would be next to impossible to know which Nancy that owns a Trillium. Hopefully the right Nancy will see this and repost the pictures.

Thanks Donna. I think I may have found another thread where something similar was done.
