Hi,

We are considering buying a separate screened room to use when we camp in really buggy areas.

Any suggestions?

Thanks
Diane

I have one of those too. It's a Playhut EZ Twist.

Weighs nothing, I don't seem to have a problem with getting it twisted back together, and it's great for 2 people, a table and a couple of chiars.

The roof sags in the rain tho. I am not using it at this moment for this very reason.

We have a eureka screen house. It is the best quality we could find. It has aluminum poles, and black no se eum mesh. It has stayed up in 30+mph winds on the beach (staked well). I like it but I wish it was easier to set up. I am too short to do it by myself. Steve says it's a piece of cake.

We bought the EZ Twist in the 8ft. X 8ft. size. We really like it but can never get it put down. We had to leave it up (at home) for over a week until it finally went down. We still don't know what we did different the last time.

So far my favorite screen room is DEET. I suppose that when I get old that might change.

So did I ever tell you about the time my daughter stayed in one of those same kinda tents with the boing?? She started packing and couldn't get it spring back and was stuffing, or trying to stuff it into her car. thank goodness a neighbor camper came to her rescue. She is frustrated, I can put it away and she can't. Oh!! I already told you that one?? oops.

Well, I am old and I hate using DEET---nasty chemical, but it does work. Now for John, all he needs is for me to be around---I am one who attracts all the biting insects.

Now that I am old, I still enjoy hiking, etc., but some times I just want to sit and read a good book while enjoying the outdoors without leaving bruises on myself from smacking the insects---yes, when one gets older, they also bruise easier.

Thanks for the suggestions, I will check them out. I know that the twisting fold up things can be troublesome. We have the sun shades that fold into a little case. It seems like when I don't think about it, and just twist, most of the time it works. I have never figured out exactly how to twist, and if I think about it, it never works.

Thanks again for the suggestions
Diane

I also have a large Eureka screen tent left over from the camping trip from bug hell. we had no seeums, black flies, mosquettos, and hornets all at the same time. Bought the Eureka and love it even thought it is too big without all of the kids. When I switch to a TV other than my Astro I will get something smaller (maybe.)

Diane,

I have seen a 17’ Casita with the standard awning that had a Full Screen Room. It turns out the Fiamma Florida room fit perfectly.

Fiamma awnings - Florida Room
03886-01- Florida Room 10' M
http://www.fiamma.com/catalog/florida_room.htm

It weighs about 30 pounds and sets up in about 20 minutes. It also has great tie downs for strong winds.

Bought a Coleman Kenai tent on sale at Costco for $35. The upper 1/3 is mesh and without the rain fly up it works well as a screen room. It's 10' X 8' and of course can also be used as a tent. Fits in a 7" X 7" X 27" box and is light-weight. Tom Trostel
