Ditto. After looking at the various alternative two years ago we settled on the the 10'x10' paha que and it is excellent. Thoughtfully designed, well fabricated. Stores in a duffel that is easy to pack and handle.

I too have the Clam Screenhouse, now called the Quick-set Escape. Lots of great stuff to say about it. Super easy for one person to set up very quickly, good quality construction, easily holds a large picnic table. Great shelter for sun, rain and bugs.

We also have a 3 pack set of wind panels to close in for the wind, or even driving rain. I must admit though I like the idea, fortunately we have not had need of them in the year we have owned it.

I do also wish it was a bit lighter, and more compact, but you would not get the features that make it so great. We take ours when we think there will be a need, and if there are lots of others going with us, as there usually is.

Though not cheap, this shelter is very much worth it for both feature and quality.

That said, once I retire and travel on extended trips, I will not be taking it with just the two of us, The Clam Quick-Set Traveller is the one I am most interested in, knowing the quality of the one we have. If needed, it is a great size for my wife and I to set up a couple chairs and small table in.

It is one of those lightweight things that springs up almost by itself. There's a youtube video of it being put up and taken down:

If anyone wants to save a couple of bucks:

After reading about the Clam Traveler, I just now (3/20/2016) bought one, with 2 side panels. Both brown. Amazon price $299.99 + $@9.99 for two side panels.

I purchased from:

Reed Family Outdoor Outfitters

www.reedssports.com

Paid $179.99 for the Clam Traveler and $29.99 for 2 side panels. No tax, but $8.10 for fed Ex shipping.

We have used several screen tents, from $89 - $280 none lasted more than a couple years, and all very difficult to put up. Having tent camped for 30years before the scamp have made several shelters and they were no the best. Seeing a lot of clams in campground started asking questions, all talked about ease of set up, weather worthiness, and durability. We decided on a Clam Pavilion, or should my wife decided after my grumbling about the price she went on Amazon's warehouse site and found one for just over $300. The pavilion is 12x12 with attached wind panels, have set it up once inside and took about 3 minutes, reading looking forward to using it with our cats while camping. Have learned never turn a wife loose on Amazon when you say something cost to much. This site is wonderful, learn more from it every day.

I just ordered a Wenzel screen house. It doesn't weigh much and is easy to put up. I can have kitties in it without there being excessive crowding. maybe down the road I'll opt for a clam, but right not this meets our needs.

Just got the small Clam.

I bought the small Clam.

Very high quality.

Got the brown one for under $200 including tax and shipping from Amazon.

Really does go up and down in a minute.

Wish the carry case was a little oversized though.

Do these screen houses mentioned that you use fit right up against the side of a Scamp 13? That way I would be able to keep the camper door open and step in and out right into the screen room.
