Screening original windows and installing RV windows

I'd like to see some photos or hear some descriptions of how people have installed insect screens on the original bus windows.

A while back I came across some photos here of a window opening being filled in and a smaller square RV window, slider with screen, was installed. Anyone have any photos of larger RV windows being installed? I assume that a few ribs could be cut safely for windows that span two original bus window spaces. Steel tubing welded in at the top and bottom of the rough opening of course.

Thanks,
Christopher

Re: Screening original windows and installing RV windows

I started building screens for the bus the other day. Mine are being installed on the inside and only cover the top section where the window moves. I have a little screen clip at the top and they pivot open to allow me to open/close the windows. I placed them on the inside to keep them cleaner and that way I don't have to worry about losing any screens as I travel down the highway. I have almost lost one on the Class C and I have seen several lost on other rigs while driving. (sorry the pic is a little dark but it was a bright sunny day yesterday)

I have actually washed the Jeep three times since I bought it back in 1997. It wouldn't run right for a few days afterwards. The lunatic that David used to remodel for would have her vehicles washed every week in her driveway... along with anyone else's vehicle that happened to be there too. Poor Jeep would get soaped and waxed. And it complained about it every time! Now I can rinse it off with plan water... just not soap. Which suits me fine... I don't wash Jeeps and trucks! And now Buses! Besides my Jeep thinks it's a tractor! After all we used it to pull cut trees and stumps out of the woods on our property when we lived in TN.
