I am 6'2", so keep in mind that you'll need a ladder to reach if you are any shorter-I could just barely reach the extendable poles.
  1. Slide the cabana awning bead in the rail
  2. put the folding aluminum pole (that makes the u-shaped arch)in the end of the cabana
  3. install the three extendable poles from the roof to the u-shaped arch to make the roof tight
  4. adjust everything so it's straight.

I'll post the pics I have on Photobucket.

I also use Amazon and Camping World sites. When making my list of items to get (never-ending it seems, but fun ), I compare prices between the 2. Sometimes the disparity is huge , and I will note the prices on my list (Notes on iPhone, synced to iPad) and update the shopping carts accordingly.

For the add-on room idea, when I was tent camping, I used to have a 10x10 canopy from Gander Mountain ( Gander Mountain Combo 10 x 10 Canopy w/Mesh Sides and Wind Walls-760902 - Gander Mountain) that had options for screens and/or wind shields to be added as "walls". We had a kitchen unit we added which had a sink, side tables, and hanging pantry for keeping stuff in. Shelves were sturdy enough for our Camp Chef oven to sit on it. Both set up/broke down quickly and had storage bags with handles win would just throw in the back of the truck.

We kept a bunch of stuff in that room - mini fridge, microwave , folding picnic table, ice-maker, etc. it became our kitchen and dining room, and worked out quite nicely for us!

Here are the best prices I have found on the Cabana $484...
AE-11ft-Cabana-Dome-Awning.html
At that price I'd do something else. When I got it they were only $160...
It's not worth much more than that as it's very light weight.

These are stock photos - not our actual stuff. I failed to stake down the screen room while camping last year (after we switched to travel trailer, also since gone) and the wind took it for a ride and broke it. The online price for Gander Mountain is like $160, I paid $300, so I may consider getting another one one day.
