Could you post a picture taken of the door from the outside? Trying to visualize how the PVC Cap looks from that angle.

It's about 3/4 " wide and simply is laying between the plexiglass and screen to give it a little body and support around the edges.....like I said earlier you might not even need it in there but I had it in my shop and cut it on 45 degrees and laid it in there....

Here's another one near the top where the curved part is.....little more involved since you can't do a 45.....used a small strip if Velcro to hold the moulding piece in place.

I got some material from Lowe's and made some screen door windows for my camper. I was not happy with the result....

So I contacted Challenger Door and bought the framed windows from them. The windows were only $25, but they had to charge me another $20 to pack them in a crate, and shipping was $40. So they were about $85.

Interesting to note: One of the guys from Challenger Door told me that Jayco special orders ALL of their doors with the window hardware in place, but without windows. It seems like the windows would be standard on the higher end fifth wheels (mine is a Jayco Eagle), but they are not. I don't know if you can even order them from Jayco as an option.

In general, I have found that all of the parts vendors for the camper manufacturers are easy to deal with.

Our door has the turn buttons installed. Too hot here in Texas to even think about having only a storm door, would be nice in the cooler month tho (yes, singular month).

I would be concerned about added weight to the screen door. I know that plexiglas is heavy. What thickness did you use?

He posted .085 plex. In a early post. Sure hope that and all the other hardware doesn't cause it to sag.
I always caution strangers coming in not to use the door for any support. Many grands never remember it very long.

The DW and I both think the little extra weight from the added .085 plexiglass panels, the bottom grille, and the push bar has given the screen more rigidity with no sagging at all that was noticed...door is still aligned perfectly for closer....IMO the screen door was flimsy prior to these installations.....however what worked for us is no guarantee for anyone else's door.....btw, just came back from 3 days with two 8 year old grandkids.....it survived that initial test very well.

I missed the .085 thickness in the earlier post. I just know that plexiglas is heavy. I have the removable clear panels on my door, but they definitely are not anything proof, but wind and rain. But I don't have small children or pets so I can't blame anyone but me if I puncture one.
