2016 Bullet Screen door

Has anyone replaced the screen door with one from a different brand of trailer? My 2016 Bullet has a screen door that is awful. It opens when the wind blows or if the dog sticks his nose against it. A friend's KZ Spree Connect has a way better door with a latch that always stays closed.
Does Keystone make a better one? Are the doors the same size/shape? Has anyone ever done this?

Is your screen door adjusted properly? I would have to break ours to force it open without opening the handle.

Maladjustment is a common problem it seems. If you do a search on screen door or adjustment you should find several discussions. Good luck.

The Challenger door on my 2016 just barely catches. I emailed them about adjustment options, but they never responded (not surprised).

I have read that you can improve by bending the hinges by placing something behind them (to tweak them towards the catch) to make the doors latch more securely. I will probably give that a shot this spring.

Don't bend the hinges, just loosen the 2 or 3 screws on the latch and push it more to the edge. If that still doesn't work just elongate the holes on the latch for more adjustment.
