Got new add-a-room

Just got my new Vacation'r add-a-room made by Carefree. Well, I should correct that, it was made in some sweat shop in China. Gawd, we sure don't make much of anything in North America anymore.

The construction quality is acceptable, as long as it lasts.
But the vinyl was so fresh that they made it out of, that it was stuck to itself in a lot of places. Almost tore the fabric a few times trying to seperate it. And it is thin crap, definitely nothing like the add-a-room we had for our old fifth, which was made in Canada.

I had hoped that something with the Carefree name on it would be top quality. So much for 'hope'.
I really cannot recommend buying the Carefree product, but I imagine they are all garbage.

I am glad I saw your post!

I have been torn between the Carefree Vacation'r and the Patty O Room.
After reading your post about the Carefree quality that has seared me more in the direction of the latter. The only thing that concerns me is the drilling of the holes for the Patty O Room.
Now that you have had your Vacation'r for several years is your opinion still the same? Also, do the sides unzip or is it a one piece construction?
One last question if I may, my wife was concerned that the reduced amount of screen in the Vacation'r might make the room hotter than the Patty O Room. Is this the case?
