So I built a screen door and it was 'mostly successful'
See attached pics.
This door was cut down to size from a previous teardrop camper add-on I built. It took a lot of time to build and is pretty cute, so I really wanted to make it work on the Boller.
The door is very light
- made of Corro-Plast (like plastic cardboard panel), aluminum U channel (siliconed around perimeter and about 3/8" square) and the no-see-em mesh (screening). There is also some thin plexiglass corners riveted to the U channel and a cross member U channel as well (see pic 3). The mesh is glue-gunned on (I like silicon and glue-gun glue, in case you haven't detected that yet
I'd say it was completely successful except that it cannot be in the closed position with the main door closed - not enough space for the main door's handle. It follows the curvature of the Bolers side so as not to interfere with the dinette seating, but I followed it too closely. If I would have relaxed the curve a bit more on the hinge side, then the main door's handle would have had room. I knew the handle was a potential problem, but I was thinking it would be higher and miss the mid section (I never checked), just pressing in on the no-see-em mesh. As it is, it hits the mid section of the Corro-Plast and not the screening
I did make it so it can be put on/off with 4 wing-nuts, so if it is too annoying we can remove it easy enough. It needs to be able to come off anyway as I also have two semi-recumbent bikes that ride inside now
It's not terrible to have in the open position at night, but protrudes about 8" past the pantry into the floor area. 'The Boss' doesn't mind it and would rather have it on the not, for now anyway.

Pic 3 - what it looks like from inside - note it doesn't impact use of dinette seat at all
Pic 4 - what it looks like from outside - cute, huh?!
EDIT: oh yeah, I had to adjust the port-a-pottie door and mess up the wall covering, but that's ok, cuz I don't like the wall paper I used anyway (it bubbles and lifts with humidity) so it's getting recovered tomorrow with vinyl.
