You might be a van dweller if you have reclaimed lattice bungeed to your windows to keep your pets in.
Even before I moved into the van I knew I was going to have to find a way to screen the front windows so I could put them down for air flow.
I've looked at numerous products (they all cost too much) from screens, pillowcase screens, velcro screens, magnetic screens - the list is endless.
Today - after I decided to clean out the van- I realized it's too damned hot in there. There's a glorious southern wind and I can't take advantage of it because 2 of my windows have to stay up.
Then I got the idea to bungee lattice to the doors. It's working wonderfully.
How did you do this?
Get some old lattice
Get a big piece of cardboard
Trace your window from the inside on to the cardboard and add about a half inch.
Trace your template on to the lattice.
Cut & bungee.
Granted, I'm still going to clean the lattice up. It needs a good cleaning, regluing, and a nice coat of spray paint. I'll probably also staple some mesh on the inside to help control bugs as well. Until then it;s doing what I need it to do ...
