Re: OT - Screens in truck windows for camping??
Another answer to this problem is sewing one side of Velcro into the edging of the screen, and using stick-backed Velcro on the other side stuck onto the inside of door/window frame.
It ain't elegant, but it works.
Just another off the wall idea to follow!
On my 8000 mile trip around the US this last month I purchased two Sun Screens that I put on the two back seat side windows.
They were made from nylon mesh that was sewn into a frame. The frame was made from very thin spring steel wire covered with material. The screen could be folded into a small circle and stowed into a little storage bag. It's a pretty neat little item. The screen diffuses the sun's rays so it's a little cooler on any passengers in the seats.
Now with a little spring wire, a little fabric and some fine nylon mesh, you could make your own screen that would fit into the window track.
That would eliminate magnets, Velcro, etc.. All in all it would be inexpensive, easy to make and store nicely.
