Default Awning Screens

I need screens for my awning and for the rear doors opening. Thanks, in advance for sources I could order from.

This got some good recommendations. I like the magnetic catches and the fact that it can stay in place even if the door is closed.

The reference above (FitRV's choice) is the best I've seen to date for commercially-produced rear door and slider door screens. Pricey, but there's a boat-load of labor that goes into making each one. About USD$650 each with tax (shipping probably more).

But you also asked about AWNING screens. I did a lot of research on that last year and I could not find anything suitable for a Class B. Those that would potentially fit the awning did not pack down to a suitably small size to carry in a limited space. So I designed and sewed a simple one myself (blog post here). It was a lot of work, but very little money. No-see-um netting is actually very cheap.

You might be onto something that can be sold commercially. In Europe, awning screens and tents are extremely common, since Europeans tend to have a lot of vacation time, so will go to a campground, and have time to spend 1-2 hours setting up and similar taking down.

Here in the US, I don't see awning tents anywhere, other than custom work.

Mine takes about 15 minutes to set up. It's intentionally not tightly fitted so that I don't have to spend time messing with adjustments. I went for the K.I.S.S. approach on this one.

For turning an awning into a screen room, these guys were at the Denver RV show

But I otherwise know nothing about them...
