My mantra: "i do not need another dog, I do not need another dog, I do not need another dog...." (I have 5, from a Standard Poodle to a Papillon, and in age from 14 to 5)

I'll need a barricade for the screen door in the Escape. Have some compression ones at home but am open to other suggestions, they're clunky.

You can get (or used to be able to get) stronger metal screens to bolt to the lower part of a screen door to prevent damage from dogs scratching at it. If you can no longer buy those, you can probably make one.

Like this: Amazon.com : M-D Building Products 33381 Door Grille (Pack of 3) : Screen Door Pet Grill : Computers & Accessories

Don't know if the right size exists, though.

You can purchase thin metal with design punched out of it. You might be able to cut this to size and screw to the screen door. Found this on Home Depot site but expect any big box home improvement store, or Ace Hardware will have it.

Search Results for*Brass+sheet+metal*at The Home Depot

Won't work on an Escape though I use them at home. Escape has a sliding folding screen door. I do plan to put a design on it so we can at least see when it's covering the entry!

We have also configured them to fit around the awning. Very versatile. It has become the first thing to set up and the last to take down.
Here are pics from our most recent camping trip with the octagon setup.

I measured it while camping, roughly 4.5' wide x 11.5' long. Doors open on either side. I call it the peanut arrangement.

Realize it is too bulky for the OP but might suit someone else searching for solutions in the future. Rubberized floors, sun screen tops. Enough room for 2 ridgebacks food and water.

We've also set them up around the awning. For those that show, they also configure to squares and rectangles.

I'm confused about the floors- I didn't think they had floors- are you just putting something under them or do they come with a floor? How wide are they when folded? (That's what has kept me from buying that kind- they seem much bulkier than metal ones.)

I like those Carol Ann, I have large metal x pens and they are heavy!

Both tops and floors are optional and ordered separately. they come in square or octagon shapes. They clip onto the D rings built into the material built into the sides via a small strap and strong snap. The D rings can also be used to peg the pens into the ground.
Floors are rubberized or like an awning material.
Tops are a cloth screen mesh similar to shade screens.
2 tops and floors fold up and easily fit into a small bag.

They are 2' wide when folded. Length matches the height you buy. Thickness about 4". You can pick them up with one hand and easily fit onto the front bunk during travel. 2 pens + 2 similar crates + 2 crate mattresses when all stacked on each other still don't reach the counter when on the front bunk.
Peanut configuration gives 42 sq ft of room for the dogs.

I have traveled not only with Harley, a 63 lb. Australian cattle dog, but also my mother and her Beagle in a 13 ft Scamp. The rule: only one on their feet at a time (mom and I do get up occasionally). The dogs work it out and Hap has her own little beagle bed under the table. They must have their leashes on before the door opens, and I have Harley micro-chipped. There is always an alternative # for the Home Again peeps to call should Harley go AWOL. We use spiral stake outs sunk all the way in the ground or tree or picnic table to attach their cables to. Oh Harley also uses a harness and seat belt in the vehicle and we stop often. The stopping helps us to shake the Scamp groupies it attracts.
