Angry Screen Room

Well that was a wasted effort. Tried putting it up yesterday by my self. Slight Breeze 5 mph. Didn't get it up and did slight damage to the upper door. Decided wasn't worth the hassle. Now trying to figure out what type of awning Gazebo canopy to get. Suggestions welcome. If not will keep looking. BTW anybody want a Screen Room without the Velcro

Screen Room

Lol are you giving up already....I love the extra space and the enclosure makes it part to the TT. Give it another try, I now could set mine up in the dark, on hard lot without using pegs, and was able to sustain strong winds in my East Coast trip last summer. Plus it looks good and stay inside on cold days, just open the door and use the heater of TT to keep you warm.

This was on a hill and the screen room survived several wind gust, my neighbor's tent flew out of its pegs. I go in/out using the side entrance, the umbrella extended the tarp for raining days. The blue mini tent is where the generator is in, protection from the rain.

No other gazebo could do this set up...but I do have one for extra shade.

I am an old tenter (everything from 2 man eurekas to Military Gp Mediums/larges) if I can't put a piece of fabric up in less than 45 minutes without damage to the trailer not worth it. So will get something else may try later after I have given it much thought. Say next year.

To make it easier for you, set it up at home and leave the screen attached to the TT. I tried this once and it works but not great when wet. With practice I could set mine up less than 45 mins alone.

Get a good quality gazebo, mine broke after several setup, it is tricky setting it up solo: http://www.ezupdirect.com/product/4-...lon-sidewalls/
This one looks good and you could have sidewalls too.

Good Luck!

I would love to buy it from you and I'll pay the shipping if you are serious about not wanting it anymore. I can make it work without the velcro. Always wanted one of these but just too expensive for my tiny budget.
Thanks

I would drive to Charlotte (I'm in Georgia) to buy it if the price is really right...but first I should wait until I hear back from OP as I have already offered to buy his first.
