Awning/screen room



I bumped into this online and thought hmmmmmm. These inflatable screen rooms come in a range of sizes and they also have them with the more usual metal poles. I haven't explored the topic fully yet - but I suspect they are a bit pricey and only available in the UK!

I'd be cussing those guy wires after tripping over them the 3rd or 4th time. I'll stick with a Clam. 30 seconds to put up.

A few of the USA RV sales sights are now offering the Dometic A&E cabana awnings that previously were only being sold in Europe. They are pricey but that is typical of the awning rooms that are imported from Europe. This one was show with a popup tent trailer but if the height works with a small travel trailer you can use an awning channel rail for the roof connection and add some fasteners to the wall for holding it tight to the sides of the trailer.

It's a 6 sided screen room that goes up in less than a minute! This isn't a very good picture but it will give you an idea.

Nobody ever says how long it takes to take down and pack up.

Glenn, less than 2. The time consuming part is putting stakes at each corner and taking the stakes out of the ground. Stands without stakes, but it can then blow away. We also use guy wires to trip over.

There is a Gazel(l) knock off brand out too. It is less expensive and is a light tan color with a size between the 4 sided CLAM and the 6sided CLAM. They also have one the same size as 6 sided CLAM. Worth checking out for people doing the research.
