New Ceiling Screen – Aristocrat Trailer

Renee and I built and replaced the ceiling vent screen. The old one was brittle and fell apart after 40 plus years of use. Here is what we did.

  1. measured the old screen as a template
  2. cut out a solid square of .5 plywood with table saw
  3. cut 4 groves into the square .20 wide for the screen rubber gasket .125 deep
  4. polyurethaned the plywood for water proofing
  5. fitted the screen (Renee did most of the work)
  6. fitted the finished frame and screen into the existing space
  7. drilled holes for the shelf brackets so the screen can come in and out
