Is this screen room free standing or does it hook to the trailer?

Just asking..

Hooks to the camper. It's designed for the Rockwood and Flagstaff A-frame campers. It only takes minutes to set up and doubles the useable space of your unit. IMHO, for $640 bucks I believe it's worth the money if you camp a lot.

A frame awning is problematic -

I was advised to stay away from the real cool looking awning shown in pictures attached to the A frames.

It has a high price tag, but the problems with it are in the setup and in the "holding up" for the long run.

A canopy is a better deal.

We're going to find out the hard way. My awning/screen room arrived last week. I'll be using it a lot this season.

In regards to the setup of the screen room after youíve done it a few times its not complicated but Iím a former tent camper. It is quite tall so I bring my four foot step ladder to make it easier. As far as difficulty staying up, I think thatís an urban legend from people just speculating about the whole AFrame thing, never experienced a problem.

Thanks Cattledog! 30 years in scouting, retired military. This screen room will be a piece of cake.

Screen rooms

We went camping for 8 days and the screen room (10'X10') increased the living area by more than double. Would not use it for a 1 or 2 day trip. Takes about 20 minutes plus to step up. It is a Paha Que awning that was originally made for Aliners but fits the Rockwood perfectly.

My main difficulty with the canopy is the Velcro pealing off the camper. It only stays on a season before sun damage makes it start to crumble.
