Screened Patio

Has anyone attached a screen to their awning to create a screened in patio? We have a 2013 rockwood roo 23SS (newbies). The Mosquitos are brutal and we don't want to come back all bit up!

Thanks

We had a screen room awning attachment for our popup camper. It was something of a pain to set up but once done it was nice to have. There was a skirt section that "sealed off" the underside of the camper. It helped with mosquitoes as well as flies but didn't keep them out completely.

Thermal- cell! We have the lantern on our picnic table and I carry the holstered one on my golfcart and boat. Instead of being swarmed you might have to swat a couple. I despise putting bug repellent on my skin.

How long do the patches last? Seems like it could end up being expensive to keep them away for a week

About 8-10 hrs, and you have to replace the butane canister at about the same frequency.

Where would you find this product? We could use it too. Hate those skeeters...
