Don't have a screen room, but we have 2 end sunscreens and a front screen. Since these pictures were taken, we now have a front sunscreen that touches the ground.

tent

we have both a screen tent and screen room.
the screen room does not keep out all bugs, the screen tent is much better. we love the screen room, it seems to open up more space.
we like the privacy when we close it up. can be a real issue if camping with wind though.

screen rooms can be heavy.
we are in Ca. , if you are close, come borrow ours
good luck

I looked into these, too, but decided on a stand-alone, octogan-shaped version, I think from Coleman. We really like it but it doesn't keep all the bugs out.

We are on our third year with our carefree screen room and couldnt be happier.
Its made for the electric awning and takes about 20 minute to install. We ordered the wrong size and when we needed panels to add two feet to the room and skirting carefree sent everything we needed for free including the shipping to Canada. The auto dump works fine with the room attached and with the storm flaps down it makes a nice cozzy place to sit.

I don't have a picture of it, but before we sold the Roo, I started using just the front panel of the screen room. It came in handy when it rained and also to keep the sun from shining on the area under the awning late in the day. The entrance door of the Roo was close to the end of the awning, and with the front panel in place, it kept the rain off the steps and the door. Drop the storm panels and the sun would be held at bay from beating in the area under the awning.
So, there are more uses than just as a screen room.

Highly recommend a product call "Thermacell". I don't leave home with out it. It works!!!! Fishing, hunting, camping or just sitting on the patio at home. I have been using them for many years. Here is a link https://www.thermacell.com/

Thermacel also makes a lantern. When the mosquitos are bad down here in Louisiana (which is usually 51/52 weeks a year) we use both the individual Thermacel units (place them under our lawn chairs) and the lantern.

This really works!!!

Hi NoGrey
We're new RVers' and saw your post about screen rooms, not to dissuade you as we have an R-Pod and love our screen room as we have a 120 lb Chocolate lab and need the extra room BUT I have a home recipe I found on Pintrest this year that I tried on our deck at home that actually worked. Whether it was because it was such a dry year or not ,I don't know, I just found that I could actually sit out and not get eaten alive. I also took it camping and sprayed the common areas between our family sites and it worked there also. I thought I would pass it along.
MOSQUITO REPELLENT: WORKS FOR UP TO 80 DAYS!
1 LARGE BOTTLE MINT FLAVORED MOUTHWASH (18 OZ.)
3 CUPS EPSOM SALTS
3- 12 OZ CANS CHEAP, STALE BEER (LEAVE OPEN OVERNIGHT TO BECOME FLAT)
MIX TOGETHER UNTIL SALT DISSOLVES
PUT IN SPRAY BOTTLES AND SPRAY AROUND PATIO, POOL, PORCH, ETC. THIS WILL NOT HARM PETS, KIDS, OR PLANTS, AND IS GUARANTEED TO LAST UP TO 80 DAYS.
(THIS IS FROM PINTREST 2016 & THE PAUL HARVEY, RADIO…..MANY, MANY YEARS AGO).
Give it a try - Happy Camping - our season is over til next year!
