Screen Door

Looking for screen door that will fit 13' scamp camper. Even home-made jobs will do, or any suggestions... We are in Greenville WI. Thank you

You might want to contact the Scamp company. They make a great folding screen door. We love ours! In our case, we bought it as an option in our new Scamp.

If you're open to try a VERY quick and simple solution, you can hang a length of lace with a hem at top and bottom, hung just inside the door with a tension rod. I made the bottom hang past the door floor and thought I'd put some weights at the bottom, but didn't get around to it for the first trip out, and it still worked fine to keep 98% of the bugs out of the trailer and permitted a nice breeze inside. Great for glamping.

A bi-fold from Scamp will cost you $200 plus shipping and then you have to put it in. I have one from the factory and love it, but for that amount of money... I'd try a solution like Linda posted. $200 goes a long way when talking about site fees, etc.

This might work if you modify it for the smaller trailer door: Buy Magic Mesh.

I love this idea! Might just have to try it!

I purchased the Magic Mesh and just tape it in place with masking tape. Works OK for temporary use.with the curve of those small trailers it takes a lot of aframe is instal permement screens.

There is an "industrial strength" hook and loop tape (AKA Velcro) that you can get at Joann's fabrics which might work if tacked or stapled onto the wood door frame (if it is indeed wood) and sew the other side to the net door. This would make your mosquito net door removable.

The wood-framed bi-fold door that Scamp sells is an easy project for one who does woodworking. It is the equivalent to making simple cafe curtains for one who sews. See if you know someone who does woodworking who might make one for you. On ours there is a 1 1/2 strip of rubber attached to the top of the door to close the gap so as not to let mosquitoes in. You might check in your area to see if someone has a factory-installed screen door that you can look at and fashion a pattern from.

Its definitely a simple and cheap fix. I used red and it really looks cute. But any color you're using in your trailer would look great. You could also use tulle fabric or even ust nylon screen from Home Depot to make the same type of screen.
