Screen room not awning add room.

Looking at getting a screen room want a very easy 1 person setup. Looking at the clam 9879 which looks great but cheapest I find is 240.00. Wondering of there might be a cheaper room that is as easy to setup?

I had a Starcraft 3612 that I just traded 3 weeks ago for my 2010 HW296.
I originally had a Dometic 13ft awning on it, but the room fell apart all the stitching come undone right by the zipper.
Starcraft said Dometic stopped making the room for the Awning.
So I changed the Awning to a Shademaker Awning and got the screened room I think it was around $200. It goes on with Velcro, if I had kept that trailer I was gonna put snaps on the room.

My Bro has a tool for putting on the snaps.
Checkout the Shademaker Awnings if you haven't yet I loved the Awning, very easy to setup one person can do it.
Here is the link

They even make it in a 14ft Awning.

There may be other cheaper ones out there, but I will say after using the CLAM for this summer, it has to be the best out there. Set up and take down is can be done in less than 1 minute once you figure it out. We got ours for right around $200 including shipping, but we waited until Black Friday to do so. We compared many other ones and found they were not that much cheaper and saw another camper with the CLAM and they showed us how it worked and we were sold. It is worth every penny.

Just my two cents.

Explorer thanks that's what I was thinking (black friday) the bad part I want the brown / tan one not the green. (Has to match my pup) lol. I seen a coleman one on youtube but it looks just like my EZ up which is a pain and the wind walls are horrible to install n fold.

We just bought the Tan/Brown Clam Screen House. Set it up and took it down for the foirst time yesterday. Piece of cake once you know how to do it, which is explained in the many vids on YouTube about them. I couldn't find the brown one anywhere for less than $300. Where did you find it for @$240 and how ,much was shipping?

Yeah, I wished ours was brown to too match the camper lol. I will say,quality is top notch and after seeing a couple others and what they cost I personally wouldn't get anything else. We love ours.

How is the clam in the wind? Watching the video it looks like if you had a strong wind it might fold in.

Can't comment on a super strong wind but you do stake each corner. Haven't had it up in a really strong wind yet, but did have it set up by our site by the river and it was pretty windy and no issues.

Now, I will say I had unstaked it to take it down and got busy with something else and it did blow over, so it does have to be staked.
