    Hi Mike,
    We have the same model, so presume you mean a screen for the hab door, as all the windows and roof vents already have the fly screens.
    We were unable to find a suitable roller screen to suit the K-T so we fitted a vertically hung 'chenille strands' one which is very effective, and was easy to fit and can also be removed during times when it's not required.

    Fitted the Fiamma two piece vertical screens to ours works we'll now but make sure the weights are above the door well base or they can catch when exiting . Roll up neatly when not in use.

    Thanks for that. I have fitted Chenille strands already.
    I was a bit vauge about the reason for the blind. I need the blind to keep insects out and Alfie cat in.
    I am trying the idea of a white plastic box section to mount the roller blind on. Still early days yet but need to sort before wintering in Spain in January.
