screened porch

We just picked up our new Micro-Lite 21FBRS. Does anyone have a line on an affordable, not heavy weight, screened porch to add to the awning? I'm looking for one that won't require drilling holes in the TT body.
Thanks, y'all

Uphill-Welcome to the forum. Our Mini Lite 2109S is identical to your Micro Lite. We have had ours for a year and have enjoyed it. Although this year we have not been able to flush out the anti freeze yet because we are still getting a little snow. Very late Spring!

I have done quite a few mods but have not looked at a screened porch yet. I'll be interested to see any responses you get.

Congratulations on your new TT!

There is a company that makes screen rooms for the dometic roll out sun shade. I do not remember the name of the company, but will look through my stuff.

Carefree, we got the "vacation'r" and WE LOVE IT. My wife can put it up or take it down alone in less than 10 minutes.

What holds the awning up? Are there any support poles? Must put a pretty significant strain on the arms.

BTW, looks good!

Yes, y'all, great for the insect infested S.E. and its woods environs. We camp in FL, GA, AL, NC, TN., and headed for AR too. Did about 50 nights last year will do more than 65 this year. After having had an R-POD with its R-DOME I knew we need and WANTED one of these.
OldCoot, the whole ensemble weighs less than 16 pounds, There are two additional support brackets screwed on the the back awning canal. No strain, no pain and no drilling into the superstructure which wanted to avoid. It is specifically designed for awnings. Well designed IMHO. Check out the video on line:
