I have to credit my wife with a life saver. She bought one of those snap-screen doors with magnets. She found it at a discount store cheap just before we went camping. With the hot weather and we forgot the key to the gen, the screen door was the only thing between sanity and mosquitoes.

Since your door opening appears to be square & flat you have lots of options. As noted, keep an eye out on Ebay...also check with RV salvage yards. And constructing one from steel or aluminum tube would be a piece of cake.

I've been thinking about fabbing up my own as well, using either the existing door windows or with a lexan double pane set up.

I had no choice but to fab my own due to the shape and odd angles involved. The leading edge is flat while the back edge has a slight curve that matches the body. Yes...it was a royal pain. I now envy anyone whose bus has flat sides and a square opening. The only thing I might stress is how handy a "curb view" window in the door can be. Even a small one.

our folding door

We drilled a hole through the wall next to the door and put in a special locking gate latch. Then we put a bar on the door . when unlatched it folds open and when latched the bar keeps it from opening.
