Detached screened gazebo

Hi! New to forum and Forest River... we downsized from a 30'Jayco to the "perfect for us" 20' Surveyor 200MBLE. We do not want an attached screen room but would like more outdoor space free from bugs ... perhaps to put over a picnic table ... any suggestions? We've looked at Tailgaterz-4300614 - Magnetic-Screen-House and Coleman Instant Screen... need experienced advice ... concerned about ease of set up & durability in slight wind ( for example). (BTW we absolutely love our Surveyor & look forward to FROG talkies!)

it really is quick setup, ... I had seen the video before it was delivered, the very first time I touched ours, 1:45 min. to setup, .... after that first time, under 1 min. .........

Purchased this a few years ago from Cabelas. It replaced a different model which I hated. But the wind saved me from it.

one more statement about the Clam and then I will stop adding my two cents, ..... has nothing to do with the quality of the Clam, but is a very noticeable and helpful feature of the complete package: ..... that is the oversize carrying bag, ... most things that come in a bag like this does, are almost impossible to get back into the carrying bags without a lot of forcing and wondering how they got the item in that bag in the first place, .... the Clam's bag is very generous in size and returning the tent to the bag for storage requires no extra effort at all, ......
