Hi all - we are trying to build a screen door for our Surfside. Has anyone done this? Can you share pictures/ideas? Any help would be appreciated! Thank you

Hi Kim, I just took my surfside to Escape trailers here in Chilliwack tonight and one of the things Reece is going
to look at is putting in a screen door on for me. Apparently, the Escape trailers have a door opening very
similar to a surfside. Maybe you could talk to him or his wife Tammy about it? Good luck, Marina

Thank you for your reply. It appears that the Surfside door opening is different from the boler. We're having a bit of a challenge in figuring out how to attach the screen door to it. We've been using the templates that you've added the links to - which are great! But with the door frame of the Surfside, it doesn't have as much surface to attach it to. We'll keep trying..

I made a template from cardboard to make the 2 sides,
then traced the cardboard cut-outs onto the oak boards.
Then used a piano hinge to open/close the door.

I was trying to upload a pic, but I guess it won,t work apparently.
