Does anyone have a screen tent that attaches to the Scamp? I've heard there is such a thing but haven't been able to find one. jimsue

These 'add a room's are available out there and being as I came from Manitoba I can understand your wanting one.
Before you do buy one, I would advise you to see if you can arrange with someone who has one to spend some time in theirs on one of those warm/hot summer days Manitoba is (semi-)famous for (LOL!!) These screen rooms do block a goodly amount of ANY cooling breeze that may be around and you just may find yourself preferring to find a different way to ward off those bees, wasps, hornets, dragonflys, blackflys, no see-ems, skeeters, etc!! LOL, Been There, Done That)

I looked for the screen tent Gina described, and I couldn't find it. I have a feeling they don't make that one anymore. None of the ones I saw at Wal-Mart looked like a good shape for a 13, although I was online shopping and could have missed something.

I need one too, SOON (the bugs are OUT and they are fierce here. I can't believe they joke about Minnesota mosquitoes when they are so bad here PLUS noseeums. And they bite all the time, not just at dawn and dusk

Thank you all for your feedback on the screen tent. I think we will wait until we see something in our travels that looks like a good fit for us. This is our first summer with our Scamp so we don't really know what is out there. The Add a Room is also an interesting option. jamessue

Here's the website for a 6' x 6' x 6' pop up screen room that several of us have. Just over $50 You just pop it open and then twist it to fold it just like those pop open window shades for autos.

Not being attached you can move it around. Mine does have a solid top but no floor. Works great.

I also saw them at Cabela's, if you have one nearby, for about $60.

Joy,

If one wanted to, will it go up against the door on a Boler/clone 13-footer, do you know?

I had one of the pop up ones.. no it will not fit against the door, and mine only had one door.

The screen tent I had from Wally World is no longer made, but here is it's saga

No it really won't fit against the Scamp/Boler. In addition, the door opening is not very high so it wouldn't mesh with the trailer door.

I have an awning so I put the pop up at the rear of the awning. I step from under the awning into the pop up. My Scamp also has a screen door so the only bugs that will get me are while I'm under the awning between the trailer and pop up.

We have one from Walmart that I think is still sold there. I certainly still see them in the Walmarts I go to. It does not sit really tight up against our Uhaul, but does a great job at keeping out the bugs. We tie it down and attach it to the tongue and bumper. It adds a great extra space when camping and is a pop-up. It seems pretty good in the wind. We had another one from Walmart that blew down in a storm. We feel better about this one. The trailer door opens under the edges. You can buy a wind screen for it and all the 10-foot accessories sold in hutshop.com will work for it. We bought the windscreen that goes with it but do not use it. We do use the inside wind screen from hutshop.com. It is called a First Up, and Walmart still has them online. You can buy them as your favorite team even. We use Halloween rope light to light the tie-downs, as these are easy to trip on or hang yourself on in the dark. It makes a great extra space.

They DO have a squarish replacement model that others have used tho. I may get one and mod it as the worlds biggest X-Pen.
How would you keep the dogs from going out under it, Gina? I've thought of that but it seems they'd find it awfully easy to escape.
