Plexiglass panels for RV screen door

Today, I installed plexiglass panels on the screen door of our WhiteHawk 30DSQB which will allow us to leave door open allowing more light into the trailer.....our 15 year old cat that travels with us enjoys laying in front of the screen door to look out but with hot summer weather and using the A/C that wasn't happening much.....panels can be removed without much difficulty if we desire on those days when we want just the screen door.

Nice addition. Could tell us the source and method of attachment. We did ours and would not have it any other way.

Nice one, that's a good addition for the screen door. What thickness did you use?

Purchased .085 thickness plexiglass from Lowes....used straightedge and utility knife and cut to size and jig saw with fine blade for rounded corners.... allowing about 1/4" extra so they could be snapped into groove around the outer perimeter of the screen sections...used a small turn button purchased from Lowes on center section because there's no groove along center section to stick the Plexiglas in.....I placed a piece of 3/16" PVC tile cap moulding from Home Depot between the screen and plexiglass for support...just had it in my shop......don't know that it has to be there....hopefully closeup pic might show more.

Great job! Might have to try that on the bottom panel to "dog proof" it.
