Do you do that or just cut it to the screen size?

Ron,
a 24x48 piece is all that is needed, cut 21x10 and 21x24.5, with the top rounded corners with a small oscillating tool. Measure yours for exact. The pieces fit on the inside and there is a channel where I inserted some plastic shims. Then some rubber weather-stripping. You should have enough for the small middle but I made a mistake and had to use a piece of clear vinyl held with magnets. There is no channel around the small middle area where the plastic lock piece slides.

Thanks. Seems like a good mod. for two reasons; one the obvious, it acts as a storm door, but I also see it as being good for those cool windy days when you want the door open for light and the view.

This is a really good mod for shoulder seasons or strong wind days as well. Also, keeps dogs or cats in the trailer from tearing the screens, yet still have a view outside. Thumbs up.

Those with the 2019 models will have to remove the 90 degree door stop to get full benefit of the the storm door, I removed mine at Osoyoos the day of pick up.

I installed reflectix under the mattress topped with hyper mesh under and around the sides. I purchased a new "camping" coverlet. I also installed as electric wall heater Broan model 170 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
it gives you the option of 1000 or 500 watts by removing a single wire. I converted it to 500 watts and installed a pilot light. I had the factory install a 120v outlet on the side wall so I removed it and used it to power the heater. with the bath door open on the bottom the heat will keep the bath area warmer as well as the door area. Found a 12v alarm set up previously used and installed it by the door, set it to 12.5 volts
