Standard insect screen material for Sprinters
No-see-um Screen for Sprinters

Keep in mind there is always a trade off when comparing two different materials.

The standard house screen is lighter and could provide more light and more air flow while blocking mosquitoes and most other small insects. If you are looking for something that will allow maximum air and light in while keeping flies and mosquitoes out, you may want to choose the standard house screen fabric.

The 2001-2006 Sprinter Van standard screen cost less then the upgraded no-ss-ums but worth it. Now if you are dealing with the biting midge (the Ceratopogonidae) then the no-see-um screen is a good choice.

The 2001-2006 Sprinter Van no-see-um screen is also a bit stronger and therefore more pet friendly. No matter which screen you choose, you will find the majority of bugs are kept out with either screen.

Whether you are camping or overlanding with the family, embarking on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure in South America or enjoying a scenic trip to the Grand Canyon, a screen door will ensure you can be more comfortable and relaxed inside your Sprinter van or RV conversion.
