The screen on one of my trailer windows is long gone, and there are bars and a window that I need to have open when its warm. I make the horsies wear a fly mask to make sure no road debris flys in their face. I would rather put a replacement screen up. I see there are some commercial off the shelf ones available. Any recommendations?
I have used the rolls of soft screening sold at home depot for replacing odd shaped screens. It's pliable easy to work with and cut and I have used tacks to put them in, you might be able to use a staple gun depending on the window frame. I don't know how how sturdy your screen needs to be to prevent projectiles from coming in off the road though.
Your trailer maker can probably replace it for you, but that's usually the expensive route. Chall's suggestion is a good one - you can buy rolls of that screen at hardware stores. You can also buy a sturdier metal mesh if you need it.
If you are talking about the screens for drop-down windows, any trailer dealer s/b able to order them for you.
Part of the deal for my trade-in was that they put in screens for the drop-downs.
What I got are fabric screens, not fine mesh. They attach inside and look suited to the job of keeping debris out if I wanted to travel with the drop-downs open (not something I usually do).
If you mean the sliding screens, then screencloth would work but I'm not sure how you would attach that safely.
I wouldn't want to use tacks or staples inside the trailer where horses' heads will be.
