screenroom not so bad

We finally put up the screenroom. We were surprised it was not as bad as some people said it would be to put together. It took us about 45minutes but the next time should be easy. I must say it does give a lot of extra room and looks good. We are finally going for our first trip next week. We had other trips planned but cancelled because of rain

Agree, I've used a Camco Awning Breeze for over ten years now and when its only light rain or avoiding direct sunlight, can still be outside and enjoying the xtra space. If yours uses the vinyl bead in the awning tract, use a little baby powder to lube the fit, gets stiff over time.

Only takes us about 10 minutes now if that. Super quick after about 5-6 times of doing it. And yes it is super handy.

The screenroom we used was a dometric just for the rockwood a-frames we purchased it with the order for our a-frame A122s. The next time we put it up it should only take 10 min.

A128S Converted from ALINER Ranger

I'm currently on my East Coast trip, in Nova Scotia right now. My tent neighbor mention to me while I was doing my tour, there was a strong gust of wind and her tent with 11 pegs blew out and she had to take it down. My screen room apparently survived that incident.

I'm on a hill expose to strong wind, I'm glad they made this screen room sturdy, the blue tent survived too bad a generator is in there.

Enjoy your screen room option like I do always!

Is the blue tent specifically designed for a generator and if so what is the brand?

No, it is my beach tent that takes less than a min to pop up or close.

Good protection from rain and it is well ventilated. My friend got it in Costco for $39

The advantage of doing this set up is the fumes goes out upwards preventing the fumes to go under the trailer, I cover the front of the tent all the way but there is a gap on top for the fumes to escape.

My screen room will get its first full trial on a Labor Day trip to the beach. I may pull the trailer out and do a set up at home first. I am going to try ko777 pegless set up from above since the beach is a pretty poor place for tent pegs anyway.
