Anyone use the Add-a-room things?

I've looked a few times at the Add-a-room type of things for awnings see examples

Does anyone use these? Are they a nightmare to put up like they appear that they would be (especially for as long as an awning as we have 22')?

If you use one, how does it handle windy situations?

Yes, we put out an 20' screen room from Camco callel Awning Breeze or something like that. It attaches to the awning pole and squeeze poles for the sides awning to rv sides. It allows maybe a 20' x 8' screened area and is great for outdoor eating, TV or just relaxing. Takes me now about 20 minutes to put up, maybe 30 to take down and fold up. Its worth it to me expands your living space under cover by at least 50%. For windy days, I don't take it down I simply unzip the panels and tie them into hourglass hanging shapes, wind has little effect once secured. If real bad strorm than by all means I will take down. Very lightweight and easy to handle.
