I mentioned I would take a picture of these bug screens and post. Nice way to let a cool breeze in and keep pesky bugs out.
When I bought my rig they came with it but not sure of where they were bought. Just put in place and snug the window up.

The “Bug-Barrier” logo in your picture provides a most excellent lead, Steve. Google tells me “Skreenz” acquired the Bug-Barrier RV Division in 2009 and now offer an array of useful products configured for windows, doors, front grills and windshields of select vehicles.

Check ‘em out here: http://www.skreenz.com/index.html

It looks like "Skreenz" now only makes the pillowcase-style bug screen for the side windows. Too bad... I kinda like the SMan's heavy-duty version. Plus that original design allows for a more secure, limited opening of the window and no interference with window "rain guards". Maybe a similar, DIY version can be constructed? The aluminum frame is a bit much for my limited skills, but a wood frame routed for the window seal and some skeeter netting tacked on may work...hmmmmm

It is a shame they are no longer produced. They actually work nice and are well made. The top edge of the aluminum is tapered to fit into the window channel and the bottom has a channel formed in it to accept the window glass. If anyone wanted to attempt to make their own I'd be happy to create a template from mine on cardstock and send via the mail. --- Steve

Not sure I sent PM correctly (I'm old) but mailed yesterday. ;) I suspect you'll get it by Monday.
