Bug screen question

What is the consensus. Do we attach a screw to the awning or do we buy a tent of some kind.

Dining tent is the way to go. If you do a screen on the awning, you also have to block off the underside of the RV plus, it would be very hard to roll up the awning in a hurry when a storm is blowing through, etc.

Another option is 100% DEET.

Have you tried a Thermacell? Got one at Walmart and works well.

If you go the dining fly route, I suggest getting one with the magnetic closures. They are a little more expensive, harder to find , but you will quickly get tired of zipping and unzipping the zippered models especially when you are carrying something.
