Getting there!
I have the top half of a fly screen catch missing on the hab door of a 2005 Rapido, I have also read the same was used on Auto-Trails of the same era.

Below is a few photos found online of the catch in question…

Bottom half (still in place and ) working

Top part (1 of 2 pieces) missing

Piece 2 of 2 from the top clip shown above (also missing)


Any help appreciated, can’t find anything online other than two people trying to find the same with no joy!

I had similar issue, found similar top clip on eBay (lost link sorry) was £13 from EU, but wasn't exact and unable to fit.

I have used some 2.5mm electrical cable bent into U shape with feet (L shaped both end of U) , which fits snuggly into the two grooves either side and hooks together blind and fly screen. You can use brown or blue 😉

Probably explained badly, let me know if you want a pic.

Not prettiest but works for now, easy to pull out and refit

Might not be... dodgy memory Banks now, but looks very similar to the catches on our old Swift and Compass caravans..
May be useful!!
