Awning/Screen room

We would like to purchase an Awning/Screen room for our 2014 Rockwood A122.

Awning/screen room

Rockee: We bought the Dometic screen room designed to fit on the A122 and, in spite of the time it took to put it up and down, we really liked it. But, this past March, we got caught in a storm that, fortunately, did no damage to the tent-screen room itself, but broke one of the poles. That's when we discovered that Dometic won't sell a replacement pole. You have to buy an entire new set of poles at a cost of $366.00. If I were you, I'd think twice about buying Dometic's
awning/screen room.

We will now be probably be looking for a pop up screen room. A canopy with a screen.

I believe that the cost on these start around $99.

Boat stores that sell parts for bimini tops are a great place for ad hoc repairs on camper awnings.

I have had poles made at the local boat canvas top shop, they can bend any shape pole you would need.

You and Sundancer are correct. These guys repair and fabricate for all sorts of applications. I got a pole for free when the owner of the shop sent me out to the scrap pile and told me to "look around and take what you need."
