Welcome here and try using the search function in the forum.
There are a lot of posts about this here and I built one myself from them too.

Have fun

Ed

You can also buy all that you need to do it from the Scamp parts store.

Essentially divide the door opening in half and make 2 frames out of standard window screen framing. Put a hinge between them and mount to a bifold door track on top and/or bottom.

I used a magnet and plate to keep it closed and also had to build a frame to make the doorway opening square to provide a flat place for the door to fold against.

I will try to find a pic of the one I did soon.

Hello Ruth and Jason and welcome to both of you to the forum. I find that when I use the search feature the lower blank labeled goggle search works better for me. I did a search for screen door with quite a few hits. Might give it a try. Take care, Raz

I don't know if it would be an option, but my Escape 17B uses a Mirage Retractable Screen Door. There is a video of how it works on the link.

Doh! All I needed to do was put "screen" into the search area on the Scamp parts site. Poof! There it is. $195.00. There are different doors depending on model.
