Magnetic Fly Screen From Living in a Bubble Review

This post was updated on: May 2024

Perhaps you’re someone who likes to spend their summers outdoors but hates the hassle of constantly having to swat away bugs. If this sounds like you, a magnetic flyscreen might be the perfect solution. These screens attach to your window or door frame with magnets and can be easily removed when not in use. They’re a simple, affordable way to keep bugs out of your campervan or caravan.

As a campervan owner, we know that dealing with bugs can be a real pain. A magnetic fly screen mesh is a simple and affordable way to keep them out without having to install a permanent door screen. This article will look closely at the Living in a Bubble magnetic flyscreen door.

What Are Magnetic Flyscreens and What Do They Do 

A magnetic flyscreen is a type of screen that uses magnets to stay in place. It is typically made of a mesh material that allows cool air to pass through while keeping insects out.

The magnets are sewn into the screen’s edges and attached to metal surfaces, such as doors or windows. It makes them ideal for use in camper van doors and windows, as they can be quickly and easily removed when not needed.

In addition to their convenience, magnetic flyscreens are also very effective at keeping insects out, as the mesh is small enough to prevent most bugs from getting through. As a result, they are a popular choice for people on the road.

The magnetic fly screens from Living in a Bubble are a new way to quickly add protection to your campervan doors and windows from insects. They are designed by people who have lived the van life and know the struggles with unwanted bugs. These magnetic screens are made from premium quality mesh with magnets that are sewn around the edges allowing them to attach to any metal surface such as doors or windows.

The mesh on these screens is small enough to keep most bugs out while still allowing air to flow through. They are easy to remove and store when not in use, making them a convenient option for people who are constantly on the move.

Living in a Bubble has 3 different fly screens available to fit mid and high-roof vans such as a Mercedes sprinter or standard roof vans such as the Toyota Hiace, as well as magnetic front window flyscreens for vans and cars. You will find their magnetic door screen kits will fit most door sizes.

Mid and High-Roof Magnetic Flyscreen

We have this flyscreen for our Mercedes sprinter campervan sliding door, and the fit is spot on. The entrance section for the magnetic door flyscreen has durable, heavy-duty magnets for easy access in and out of your van.

The rear flyscreen for mid and high roofs comes with a zipper on the middle for access; however, the flyscreen size is the same as the side door. So, if you prefer a zipper for your sliding door, you can also choose this one.

The fly screen size is 210cmx150cm but can be stretched to 160cm and comes with a 1-year warranty.

The vans that the Mid and High-Roof can fit are:

  • Mercedes Sprinter high and super-high roof
  • VW Crafter high and super high rood
  • Ford Transit mid and high roof
  • Renault Master mid and high roof
  • Fiat Ducato mid-roof only
  • LDV V80 high roof
  • Iveco Daily

Standard Roof Magnetic Flyscreen

The flyscreens for the standard roof come with all the same features as the above but are smaller in size, coming in at 160cm x 130cm and can be stretched to 140cm.
