I don't think they ever had those screens
I am missing the screens for both lounge windows
Would love to find something
I would take any bird screens that I could modify to fit. Length is not critical.

Most Ace/True Value stores will custom make window screens in frame color/width and fabric of your choice. Take the old one in if you have it. Otherwise, measure carefully as fit is your responsibility.

Van. You can also buy a cheap kit and make your 0wn. Most are not aluminum color and the profile is different
I think the kit is under $10.00. I eas thinking of buying oneto try. If I could find some original screens they could be cut and tig welded to size. There are 2 companies that make bus windows. One is in Oregon and another is in Winnipeg
The latter makes windows for Prevost
Maybe they can help.


One is in Oregon

I just had 2 window screens made by the guys at our local hardware store. The screens work pretty good when parked not as good for driving down the road, but hope to have a fix for that soon.

I was watching Shark Tank the other night and this outfit was on. These are a little pricey, but they make them dog proof and guaranteed for life, I think. Anyway, it may work if you can't find another solution.

John. What is the problem going down the road? Do they rattle? I was looking at some online screen makers and they can make the a screen with a flat spring on top that may prevent rattling
I still have 3 windows with screens they fit very tight from topto bottom. Are you going to Q ?

My 83 FC has matching front screens. It’s open in the pic, has a latch and mating latch hook on window frame. They definitely exist. Identical to salon/kitchen/bedroom/bathroom screens. Will get better images or details if wanted. I have both sides.

If anyone has a spare door window screen I’m missing just that one (did it even exist with the actual screen door right there??)
