Finally installed screens for roof hatches.
« on: October 02, 2012, 12:53:29 AM »
Got around to making my own roof hatch screens. Used weatherstrip to seal them against the ceiling. Works wonderful. Loving the fresh fall air that circulates through the bus now sans the bugs.

Excellent addition!

Do you have one on the driver's toll window too?

happy coaching!

Funny you say that, I wanted to put one on the toll window too but can't quite figure that one out yet.

I was thinking Velcro?

Put the soft stuff on the frame and the stiff stuff on the piece of screen...

It may be a small window, but with it lower in the coach, it helps break any thermal layering on a calm night.

Depending on how many other opening windows the coach may have...

happy coaching!
