Tried to get a retractable screen door from the company below for my 16LD. This is the response I got. Anyone in the Austin area that could help these guys out? Thanks.


Robbie,

I do not think the straight one will work with the curved door.

We had some success with the curved screen but had problems when we tried to move to a more production model as opposed to the one off we did for someone in Florida. I am confident we can overcome problems if we had a trailer to test on for a week or two.

I would appreciate you putting out the word that anyone that has one of these trailers in the Austin area who is willing to let us use it to develop the screen would be given a screen as compensation free of charge.

Thanks

I had a Scamp before I bought my Casita with a bifold screen door that was straight.  Worked fine except the fit at the top was not what it should of been so bugs could get in.  I put pieces of foam in the spaces.   The Scamp did not have the front Air Conditioner under the closet, which made it easier to fit.   Good luck, because I would like to be able to buy a screen for my Casita

Did anyone ever volunteer their Casita for this? 

 

I would be willing to drive mine from Bryan to Austin and leave it for a week or two while it is too damned hot.

   someone already let the company borrow their 13ft PD & the owners brought it to the bluebonnet rally in bandera, tx last april to show anyone interested. they also had the company's business cards. the door looked very nice & professional.

    however, the price is way too high for my wallet. price may drop if they start producing/installing more. i've not heard whether anyone else has ordered one or not. since they are only designed for the 13 or 16ft casitas, my guess is the sales volume won't be great............
