Screen Tent Questions

Need a recommendation from experienced campers on what screen tent they like or use.Mostly it is just the 2 of us so it doesn't have to be huge.And floor or no floor?

Stand alone or one that attaches to an awning? And if it attaches to an awning, would it be a power (which make awning?) or manual awning?

Never thought about an awning type,I was thinking stand alone.We have a manual awning.This is our first summer with a new camper but I am used to the outdoors worked and hunted in it all my life and even tent and boat camped as a kid.My wife is warming up to it but we have had so much record setting rain in our area the mosquitoes are even hard for me to take.

the Clam is a great stand-alone tent,...... it really is 45 sec. set up and has a 7.5 ft(90") center height,... 1st. link is Amazon, search on line and you may find a better price,...2nd. link is a youtube video showing setup,....

I really liked the screen room that attached to our previous manual awning. It won't work with the power one on the XLR.

Here is the one we purchased. Very durable, and easy setting up. The center height is 86". Perfect for us taller people ......no overly rounded outer walls to contend with, allowing for more headroom all the way around. Perfect getaway from the elements, and bugs, relaxing in our Zero Gravity Chairs.

Here is the link:

Thanks for the replies guys,I went ahead and ordered a guide series 12x12 from gander mountain.Hope it works out they had them marked down and I had rewards so I don't have much invested if it doesn't work out.I don't think we will use one a ton but this year we have had record setting rain and woods or water it is a struggle.

Our Add-a-Room for our Roo 23SS (manual awning) was part of the deal. I didn't want to let it go, but the buyers were pretty adamant. Next trailer had a power awning - so it wouldn't work anyway.

old hunter - congrats on the purchase.
