As expensive as a bi-fold Scamp screen door is...they work as needed.

Now you're ready for the summer, warm nights and no bugs

I have a 90 Scamp with the bi-fold Screen door and it is great. I do a lot of boondocking and driving on very rough roads.
The plywood on the right side of the door is very thin and I have had it pull away from the wall. If they did not put larger washers on the mounting screws I would suggest you do so before the plywood splits. The washers solved my problem.
If you only use paved roads it probably is not necessary.

I used metal. They are well worth the expense. What would also be worth some serious money is something to keep the No seeums out.

hummm, all my wife did was take some velcro go around the door opening and take some cloth screen material and afix some of the velcro to it.

stiched the cloth screen to the shape of the door and instant screen, no fussy wooden door taking up space and when the screen is not needed (winter etc. we just roll it up and hide it)

There was a recent thread on Yahoo Scampers about awnings -- The optional awning Scamp uses is not as easy to set up as the one Joy got (A&E Horizon) or the one Casita now installs (Fiamma) as an option -- Turns out they are apparently the same awning except for name and the fabric design (and maybe the price; wise folks will shop around) -- Apparently, Fiamma makes all the key parts for several RV awning manfs -- Joy reports that her A&E has a number of Fiamma labels on the hardware.

I have watched Joy set up her awning alone and was impressed by how slick and easy it was -- If an awning is difficult to set up and take down, it's unlikely to be used much...

sounds easy enough to do, but wouldn't you have to re-velcro the screen every time you go in and out? Wouldn't that take a lot of time? I am going in and out of my Casita all the time and would not want to take the time to revelcro each time. Is there something I am missing as to going in and out without maybe re-velcroing each time?.

Just another approach: I bought a 6' length of fabric screen from the boat supply store, sewed pockets along the sides for a couple of those replacement fiberglass tent poles and added a pocket at the bottom for a row of marbles to hold the bottom of the screen on the floor. A couple hammock hooks on each of the side walls hold the poles against the curved door wall. It's worked well for a number of years now.

Pete.. thanks for the links on the Fiamma awnings also.... its just a matter of getting one and havng it installed... ( next project)
I talked to one of the RV places the other day.. someone with a Casita had the A & E awning put on ( didnt ask what the price was tho ) LOL Of course they had to reinforce the leg holders at the bottom of the trailer...
I looked at Joys brackets... and printed the directions out.. but someone would h ave to know what they are doing before I would even try to let someone start putting holes in the trailer for them....

I really hate these case awnings... its such a 'chore' to try to get help to put up and down and seems when i got out in the trailer it ruins my trip to hassle with it... I like to have it down tho.. seems more private and when its warm the dogs need shade. I might temperarlly get a screen room if I can find one easy to set up.....

Terry: I have seen those screens on Ebay..they are nice but not practical with the dogs....

Does anyone know if the Scamp screen door will fit a Casita?

2002 16'FD Casita, probably without screen door, arriving tomorrow, (thank you again, eBay!)

and '88 Scamp with screen door sitting in carport.

I'm thinking the screen door will be worth more to us than the eventual new owner of said Scamp...

PK loving these forums!
