Has anyone replaced their screen door with aclear see-through door? If so, did you make it or purchase it, and if purchased, from whom. What are these doors made of? I have seen them on campers but can't seem to find out where they came from.

I didn't replace the door. Instead I went to Home De Pot and bought 2 sheets of 1/8" plexiglas and couple boxes of velcro tape. I cut the plexiglas panels to fit on the inside of thescreen door. I applied the velro tape to the4 sides of each panel and to thescreen door. The panels are nowfixed to the door but can beeasily removed. With the plexiglas panels on the door,we cannow have the outside door open for extra light and be able tokeep the A/C chilled air inside the trailer.Will add pictures later.

Here are the pictures of my screen door panels.







This picture shows the upper screen panel.












This is a picture of the bottom panel.













To remove the panel, I just put my hand between the screen door and the panel to separate the velcro strips.













This is the removed top panel. The white bands are the velcro strips.















This is the matching velcro strip on the screen door for bottom of the upper panel.















This picture shows the upper panel in place and fitted so that it fits inside the seal material on the screen door.

I did mine a little different. Home Depot has acrylic that fits in the groove on the screen door. It slides in easily.

I bought a clear shower curtain cut it to size to fit the door and used velcro to attach. You can roll it up when you want to allow air to come in. Work pretty darn good.Edited by: jgerni

My wife loves this mod to the point she had me cut the screens out so she can clean both sides of the door. Unless it's below freezing our outside door is open. I even bought the slide panel in clear and changed the center fixed panel to clear.

I found a glass shop that removes the screen and replaces it with this real thick tinted flexable film that installs into the same grove just like the screen, Very durable and ultra light. I first had plexiglass that was siliconed in place as wasn't as neat a job as this.



The glass shop went to the dealer and removed the door covered the door and reinstalled it for $120. I have no desire to camp without A/c so no need for a screen door. It does really well with the a/c's on.
