Screen Room

Hi folks, We are the proud owners of our first camper (a122s). I didn't come with the awning/screen room. Was wondering if anybody could give me the part number or link so I can buy it. Thanks everyone, happy camping!!

Can't help with the awning (Do A-Frames HAVE Awnings?)

We have a 5er and we use this as a Camp Screen House though! Plops right over the picnic table and when the bugs come out, the screen attachments keep em out

Oh, and the battery powered canopy LEDs are awesome! Coleman Instant Canopy with LED Lighting System: Sports & Outdoors Coleman Screen Walls for Instant Shelter: Sports & Outdoors

Screen Room

Search on this forum for a thread titled "Screenroom Model or Part Number". Someone else recently asked for the same info. This thread has the answer. When entering the search terms in the Search box, enter them exactly as in the quotes above, but without the quotes. The search engine is very literal, or very dumb.

Alternatively you could PM the member who answered the earlier question: mzak.

Your information doesn't say where you live or camp. We just bought an A122, living and camping in Colorado, where on any given day the chances of experiencing winds above 25MPH for a while are pretty high. I've seen many a pitched tent that was not properly staked rolling across a camping area.

We didn't want to be bothered with dealing an awning or screen room in the wind, or having to worry about it while we left camp for the day. So we deliberately didn't get the add-on room. Instead, we have a quality fold-up shelter to go over the picnic table that can be properly staked down. Even the shelters struggle in the winds - the cheaper/lighter ones typically get destroyed in the 2nd high wind experience.

We were on our 1st trip with the new unit at Cherry Creek Lake State Park (just outside Denver) this past weekend. Of all the wide variety of campers/RVs/5th wheels I saw, just one deployed their awning. And this was light winds (mostly) and good weather.

Other locales don't have this problem, and I can see the add-on being a very good idea.

just my thoughts and experiences, yours may differ

We don't have the FR awning, but I'll offer another option. Like yours, our camper did not come with the awning. We considered buying it, but we just couldn't bring ourselves spend the $500-600 on it.

We bought a good 10' x 10' EZ Up style awning with a screen room attachment. Below is a pic of how we set it up...minus the screen room. We have the corners tied down using adjustable cinch straps. Three straps are hooked to dog tie-out augers, and one is hooked to the camper's left step housing. The awning just flat out doesn't budge.

It might seem to some like a bit of overkill on securing it down. We've seen freak storms blow through, and have even lost an awning to one...with the storm coming through so quickly that there was no time to drop the awning. We had one blow through this past October, and while everyone else was either chasing their EZ Ups, holding down their awnings, or wondering how much it was going to cost to fix the fresh hole in their roof , our awning just stayed right where we left it.

To keep from tripping over the augers at night, we have solar lights we plant in the ground between the augers and the poles.

I bought my screen room at the same time as I purchased my A Frame. If you contact the closest Forest River dealer they could probably order one for you.
The screen room has been a great addition worth the cost in my opinion it has more versatility than a separate structure. It can be used as a totally enclosed private room, a screened shelter or a sun shelter when the sides are zipped off. It takes some getting used to for putting it up but it gets easier with practice I put mine up by myself. I don’t use it on short trips of a day or two but on longer trips I always use it. Has come in handy on rainy trips, definitely nice to step out of the camper on a rainy morning and sit and have coffee. Keep in mind it doesn’t have a floor so mats are a good idea.

Screen Room

If you wish to extend your Aframe cabin space the screen room is a perfect solution. I leave my bed/s out during camping and use the extra room for cooking and dining.
Since I now could set up the screen room by myself within 45 minutes, I use it all the time, the extra privacy place is priceless.

Here in post #296 page 30 I did last year, pictures of my screen room and on how to set it up without using pegs
A128S Converted from ALINER Ranger use Webview to link correctly

Just secure the front top corners with rope to a tree, picnic table, car bumper, fire not pegs, then it will survive any strong wind or gust which I experience last year, my neighbor's tent flew away with all its pegs.

The screen room and front tarp makes this a perfect setup in my last weekend trip because it rained most of the time, oh well no biking but it did not get wet lol

I ordered the awning/screen room on May 8. Looking forward to the extra space. Hope it doesn't take long to receive it.
