Default Window screens?

Just going through our new to us 2000LX ME coach and noticed that none of the windows have screens.
My 88WB40 has screens.
Were screens original in the 2000LX?


Than you,
Andy

Randy are you aware of a source for screens that I can get and install?
Thanks,
Andy

It's going to be tough but not impossible. The frames are radiused on one end so you are going to need a bender to make them. Didn't I see a salvage one somewhere recently???
Enen then you may not get them all as some had more windows than others.
Mine has 9 windows with screens plus the 2 front side ones (driver and door) that do not have screens.

I can see why some would remove them as they are the source of 90% of my rattles.
Might want to check with the PO. They may be stacked in their garage or basement.

Previous owner bought it with no screens from the original owner.
I am going to see if I can find any wrecks that have the screens.


Thanks.

My LXi was missing a screen. Randy Dupree found the vendor. I talked to them. They had me send a picture to verify it was theirs. Then dimensions. They mailed the screen in a package that was incredible protection.

On mine the windows and screens are Blue Bird standard windows made by Peninsula Glass, Motion Windows Division, 6005 NE 121st Avenue, Vancouver, WA 98682, telephone 360-892-2029, or Jeff Kemp, Sales Manager 360-944-4446, and the company website rvwindows.com.

Well worth getting, to be sure.

Good luck.

I have used Metro Screen Works. They will make screens to your size and specs.

Ron great information.
Contacted the company. Very help full.
Unfortunately my windows are not made by Motion Windows.
My glass is Guardian so they cannot help.


Al thank you I will contact them.


Thank you,
Andy

Try contacting Storm Tite in Winnipeg. They make windows for Prevost and I think MCI. I too would like some screens.
