A Frame Screen Tent Awning?

Has anyone seen or used one of these yet?
Saw this one on an ad on ebay and I'm pretty sure I gotta have this.
If any of you have details on this I'd love to hear about it.
Thanks

I'd like to see some feed back on this too. Saw these in the 2012 brochure.

Didn't know they made those. What a great accessory!

I know they cost around $600, but Im having a hard time finding where to buy.
Maybe calling Forest River will help.

I emailed my dealer, who replied they could order one for me. This was a few months ago when I first heard about the canopy. As I recall, the price was around US$ 750 plus shipping and sales tax. That cooled my interest pretty quickly.

Found it.
The awning/screen room assembly is an option for $638.00. Humm, looks like there is a $390 bike rack option that people have been looking for too:

Looks like my dealer wasn't going to sell the canopy at the price RV Direct quotes, although the CO detector and the vent fan were standard on mine, whereas RVD wants extra for them, plus their price for the camper is nearly $4K more than my dealer sold for. Apples to oranges though...

If anyone finds pictures of the bike rack, please post them.

This is very similar to the screen room I had for my T@B. For extended stays this is a nice addition as it probably doubles the interior space of the trailer. The T@B screen rooms were made by Thermarest.

So awesome! I am new here btw. We bought a A frame Rockwood in the fall. My hubby used to handle all the camper stuff, but he was injured a few years ago (not camping) and now I have to know what is going on. I bought this camper. I thought it would be easier for me to manage than our truck camper...and easy to tow.

That screen room looks pretty cool, but not $638.00 dollars worth of cool. Looks like I will just keep my cheap canopy.
