Default Travato screen door

I was at an RV show yesterday and saw a screen door on a Travato that was curved to match the side all of the van. I would like to put one on my Sprinter and was wondering if anyone knows a supplier for these.

We looked all over the door for a name but were not successful in finding one.

I read that Advanced RV offered screen doors for other than their own Sprinters. I don't know if that information is current though.

Advanced will install one on your Sprinter if you make an appointment with them. But it is VERY expensive. Thousands....no joke

FredA is very familiar with Advanced RV's screens on other Bs.

Is the Travato screen a rollup like many house combination storm and screen doors have now?

I emailed Advance last month about a screen door for my Sprinter van and received this reply:

"We are sorry but our backlog of new Advanced-RV motor homes we are building for clients will consume our manufacturing resources far into 2015 and are not taking on screen door installation customization tasks. If things change, we will let you know."

Doesn't surprise me as they have become super busy since last year

I recently saw an Airstream Sprinter with a curved screen door. It looked like it could be easily adapted to most Sprinter models. Picture here:

Unfortunately, a local dealer called Airstream and called me back. Airstream won't sell the door to anyone unless it goes in an Airstream. They want you to buy their top of the line model to get the door. I think the list was about $154k for the one I saw at the show. That is an expensive way to get a screen door!

The Travato screen door is a foldy type, not a rolly. As I've mentioned before, that nice curve makes it vulnerable to being pulled off the track if you grab the door too high up on the frame. The track guide parts on the door frame are plastic, but the frame and the tracks are metal. It really needs a handle or a sticker at the mid-point to remind people where to grab onto the door.

You can buy this part from Winnebago for $200-300. It's made for the Fiat Ducato, so I'm sure there are other suppliers. Winnebago doesn't make the door.

If you look closely at this pic, you can see the folds in the screen.
