We are ones that had the screen door added to our 2013 ERA 70A by Advanced RV. Pricy, but top notch work. If this a RV you plan to keep a long time, well worth the $$ in our mind. If trading in a few years is a possibility, too much money. If one has it done, I would also suggest a roll up screen for the rear doors. It completely changes the way you can use the RV. You will appreciate having a screen door nearly every day of every trip. Last summer there was a thread on this forum and subject and I think it was deborah shiek that came up with a low cost way to do it with screens from Walmart. The sprinter store also sells some.

George you're not the only ones any more. Remember the 70A at Kansas that was pulling the enclosed bike trailer? They had their's done a few weeks ago if you didn't already know that

Hey, Bob... We ordered our 70A in Brilliant Silver and the "Urban" interior. We also went ahead and ordered the new High Gloss Marbella Cherry finish on the cabinets. I keep getting mixed signals on the screen door. I was originally told that our unit would have screen doors, but now the dealer is doing a little backpedaling on that. I am beginning to suspect that in the heat of all the purchasing excitement, our salesperson might have got the 70x and 70a mixed up. In any event, I will know for sure in about a week and 1/2 when we go to pick our new baby up. It will be a disappointment if there is no screen door.. but,... well, we'll just have to wait and see.

I think what's happening with the screen door deal is that they are getting mixed signals from the factory about it. When we ordered ours, we made a couple non standard changes. Lichtsinn was told one thing by WGO when the order went in, but by the time it showed up, it was entirely different.
This involved some $$$ difference which Ron absorbed. Only about $200.

Looks like it might work on 'treks, but won't fit on the WGO ERA vans in this thread....

Well, we finally picked up our new Winnebago 70A. Drove up to Forest City, IA to pick it up last week. Spent a full day on "orientation" and drove it back to Kansas City at the end of the week. We followed behind the worst of the cold from last week, but still had to deal with pretty miserable weather coming home... much freezing rain and sleet for the first 100 miles. The next 100 miles was cloudy, drizzly and very thick fog. Finally, south of Des Moines, all the rain and mist stopped, but stayed cold and cloudy the rest of the way. Not the most enjoyable way to try out the new ride, but we made it home safely none-the-less. First impression of the new Sprinter.... Fantastic! Smooth and quiet engine, great ride, superb handling. This is our first RV and I am not at all used to maneuvering something this large.. none-the-less, navigating downtown Kansas City during rush hour was no problem at all!! we are really looking forward to taking our first trip. Really like the new look of the 2014 chassis....

Good deal. Was wondering about your weather experience on the trip. Took ours out for the first time today in 6 weeks. Got the "ants in the pants to go" syndrome now....
Hollar at me if you've got any questions. Don't forget to disconnect those batteries when it's sitting for more than a couple days unless plugged in occasionally . This includes the chassis battery. Plugging in won't charge the chassis battery unless you install an extra charger to it
