    Hello -

    We're new to the site and need some advice. We have a 1998 Terry Trailer, a 26B "Resort" made by Fleetwood. There is a 23 X 31 emergency escape window in the bedroom area of the trailer. It is hinged at the top and has two metal clips on the bottom to hold it shut. During the night there are many times we'd like to open this window to get a cross breeze but can't because there's no screen on it, plus there's nothing to hold the window open once the clips are released. I've used a stick a couple of times to prop the window open for a few minutes, but then we have to deal with the bugs...

    Is there some kind of screen out there that we can purchase for the window? Can we have one made? Or can we remove this window and put in a different kind? Where this is an "emergency escape" window, we're not sure what we can do to improve it's usefulness.

    Any suggestions out there would be greatly appreciated!

    I would recommend you got to walmart and buy the roll of screen material than go to a local hardware store and pick up some sight 1X1 lumber and build you a screen you can place in the window location but yet easy to remove in an emergency.

    I made one out of screen material and aluminum screen framing that you can get at most hardware stores, it comes in about 6' lenghts that you cut to size and then install plastic corner peices. you then install the screen on it with the rubber cording thats available with the screens. I put two small hinges on the top and a small latch on the bottom to make it easy to open. It's realy light so velcro would work also. Good luck
