We recently added an "instant" screen room to our camping equipment. It is made
by a company up in Rogers, Mn (southeast of Backus toward Minneapolis)

Not counting the stakes, one person can set it up in about 45 seconds and take it
down in even less time. It is a CLAM 1660 Mag Screen Tent. A couple of optional
"wind panel" kits (3 panels per kit) will turn it into a fully enclosed "tent" space for sleeping, a porta-potti privacy space, or ????

You can find more details in the following URLs:

Outdoor living space is already there. Adding a screen tent, etc. restricts the outdoor living space.

Living in a 13" camper is insane. While it is better than a tent it is not practicable for full timing. I think the minimum size is 17'. And still bigger would be better. Plus it would need good insulation.

I beg to differ, but I could live full-time quite happily in my Escape 13. One just needs to be creative. And some reincarnated nomads like me enjoy small spaces.

Phil perhaps you are right. While sailing we have lots of people in a bigger space but the amount if individual space is much less.

When I invite people to sail with me in the Caribbean. I tell them one carry on size, soft piece of luggage. All you need is a swim suit and a toothbrush. Some people go nude for the whole time. I also tell people to bring food. You can buy a T shirt anywhere. Honestly you could travel with a lunch box size bag down there if bedding is provided on the boat.

I said 17' because that is the length of my camper and it suits me well. I works for two people and a few dogs.

After having spent more time than not of the past two years full timing in a 13 footer I'd say it totally depends on your lifestyle, camping spot, expectations, etc. Much of the time I've been pretty darn happy and cozy, but I'd be lying to say there were never moments when it was a bit frustrating.

I'm getting a "real" apartment, but it was a hard decision between that and getting a 17B Escape, which I think would be a MUCH better full time option than a 13" Scamp. If I could put a 17B downtown, I'd probably have done that!
