Re: Window Screens

Those are very nice looking screens. I wish something in that style would work on my bus, but I just don't think it is possible. Do they hold up ok at highway speeds with those little zip screwed tabs or do you take them out?

Re: Window Screens

I was planning to have them on the inside and take them down to open the window, I know it sounds like a pain in the a@@ but I certainly don't think they would hold up too well at highway speeds and I haven't been to too many campgrounds out here in the Northeast where I wouldn't scrape at least one tree branch getting into the site.

Re: Window Screens

So it feels like a prison bus, not that I have been on one, not that there is anything wrong with that...

Re: Window Screens

I haven't actually tried it at hwy speeds yet, but have no doubt they will hold. They are a very tight fit to start with, and those little tab thingies are screwed in tighly too. As such they do not come loose easily...almost gotta use plyers to turn them. If it does become a problem, I wouldn't hesitate to zip screw the frames right onto the alumin window frames!!
