Screen Room for my 2503S: Question

I've been researching screen rooms on the web and in this forum. I'm having a difficult time trying to find one that I think will work, and last. Many of the forums I've read say to stear clear of the "Carefree" brand, but they seem to be the biggest seller of this product. My wife and I both think that we'd love to have one for those place where flys and mosquitos abound as she is literally bait for them.
What brand are you using or recommend?
Appreciate your helpful inputs.

So sorry. I've never used a screen room - don't know anyone who does.

Saw your complaint about no responses on the other thread. I read this thread when you first posted it. I have a 2503S, so it peaked my interest, BUT:

1. I don't have a screen room and
2. I don't anticipate using a screen room

So I did not respond. Your thread has been viewed 89 times as of my writing this, so folks are looking. But as mentioned in the other thread, I suspect most folks looking at the thread felt the same as I did - that we had nothing to offer.

I don't see a lot of screen rooms in campgrounds; I'd say less than 5%.

I love the idea of screen rooms, but the price is usually quite high. I'd rather just spend less than half the cost on a standalone screen tent (which we already have) than get one of these.

What are your reasons for wanting it as opposed to a separate screen tent if you don't mind me asking?

Citronella candles/torches are quite cheap and effective.

You could always go to a fabric shop and pick up mozzie netting and attach it to your awning with some spring clamps or velcro.

We use a oscillating fan. It is so handy in many ways. It will keep flying insects away. Blow campfire smoke away, stoke up a slow burning campfire. Provide cooling when it hot and humid. Provides white noise while sleeping in loud campsites/parking lots. Did I mention keeps bugs away?

Well, it's kind of a foldable trailer....

Had it for my '08 Roo 23SS. LOVED IT! But only used it if we were going to camp 5 nights or more. Believe I got it from PPL RV Parts & Accessories. You'll notice the awning is the manual type. It went with the Roo when we sold it. Haven't replaced it... yet.
