A/C Vent screens

Since I don't have A/C I am thinking of using the A/C vents for fresh air but want to prevent bugs from entering the trailer.
Has anyone come up with simple screening for these vents?

    There is screening covering the intake vent in the bottom of your trailer. The cowbells are similarly protected.

    I have a six wide Rough Rider and it did not come with A/C which would mount on the cargo rack on the frame.  There are two opening with covers which screw on to cover the opening if an A/C is not installed.  Those are the two round openings that I would like to use to vent the trailer.

    What I did with my 5 wide RR is I got sewer line connectors and hose clamps from Wal-Mart.  I had extra screening from a patio door replacement.  I stretched the screen onto the connectors and fastened with the clamps.  I have a cargo box on front of my trailer and they live in there when not camping.  That is as simple as I could get.  Hope that is what you are looking for.

    Yep, that is exactly what I needed,,, sounds like a good idea, if the sewer connectors screw on then that protects the RR stub outs from the clamps damaging their threads.  My RR is the same color as yours and I hope that u r enjoying ur trailer as much as I am enjoying mine!   
    Does ur setup with the screens prevent condensation and good circulation when u r using ur fan?

    if it gets too cool I still crack the windows so the vents aren't right at our head.

    We really enjoy the trailer - Just not able to use often enough!
