The vegetation can harbor chiggers (aka red bugs) . Their "bite" results in a nasty skin reaction when you come in contact with them. They're also found in tall grass areas.
Hope you have an enjoyable trip on your next time out and about.

Thanks Deb for the tips on chiggers. Probably what got me the 2nd week camping in land.

Let yall know how the Coleman we got works out.

Well worth the money and great solution to an awning or table tent.
Thanks Amy for the extensive critique. Those contemplating buying a Clam should read this.

You are welcome.
We were *supposed to get ours today and the USPO'd didn't deliver.

Maybe tomorrow.

Did you get yours yet? Tried a setup? Overall opinion?

UPDATE: Got the 10 x 10 Coleman Screen Room !



Hurrah! Finally. Post Office sent it to the wrong delivery route.

I like it. Went right up no sweat.
Will easily fit both 0 Gravity Recliners easily and then some.
Next get a clip on fan for my chair attached table and am set.

Truly fast up and down.
Screen is gray see thru.
Bottom Skirting gray.
Tent bottom portion bright green.

The hinges are double jointed so you have to turn them 180 to set the poles up. The logo goes on the outside.

For some reason? the green loops on the tent were not slipped over the poles.
No problem.
Just carefully telescope closed, unsnap black ring, take bottom stand off tip, slip on loop, then put tip back on and snap black ring.
Not necessary to do again.
The tent folds down no problem.

We can leave our recliners under the roof and take the shelter down when it rains and then slip back up again.
Definitely get you some plastic hook stakes.
Can slip the loop on and off without unstaking.

Just what we needed. Nothing fancy, just no bugs biting us.
Margaritas I taste you already.

UPDATE 2 > Neat sheet grommets and clipon fan

Ready aim fire bugs.

We put grommets on our 2 neat sheets (lightweight, sand and water resistant) bought these a few years ago at a grocery store about $5 a piece. Now they apparently are discontinued and Amazon wants $50+ price gouging. So the floor is ready already rolled

Bought a 5" clip-on fan battery rechargeable to attach to the table on the side of my 0 recliner. Should be here any day now as well as the


Natural Insect Repellent Pest-Off Body Oil with Neem Oil
Plantlife
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...eb9572f6e86df0



I think I am set. Now all that is to be done is to bring the blender for the margaritas.


Hopefully we have the lightest weight options for keeping the buggers out (except for the blender)

Update - first camping with Coleman.

The Coleman 10 x 10 screen shelter worked out well. Good value under $100. Light weight and super super fast and easy to put up and take down.
Give it a big thumbs up.

We enjoy the smaller five-sided Gazelle.

Two years ago we purchased the tan Clam screen house. It's quite a beast! We use it for a tent and when we anticipate more than four people. However, it's a monster to haul, long as well as heavy, and not that easy to take down or put in it's bag (our first bag ripped the second time we used it). We drive past the Clam offices and stopped in to complain about the bag and supposedly it has been fixed. Again it's a beast.

Almost immediately after we purchased our Clam we noticed many RV dealers were selling the Gazelle G5 Portable Gazebo. The Gazelle is perfect for four people, goes up and packs in a heartbeat and seems just as sturdy. We leave the Clam at home when traveling and take the Gazelle instead, unless we know there will be more than four in the gazebo. The next two weekends we will be taking the Clam (for the first time this year), but anticipate the Clam will be left home the rest of the year. If we had to choose between the two the Gazelle would be our choice.

Enjoy,

Perry

When we were camping this week we saw some of the "permanent" last row RVers had Clams. They do look heavy and the dark green seemed mmm too dark.

The Coleman is light and airy and gives us plenty of room for our 2 0 gravity chairs which was our purpose for buying.

We have some links here for the Gazelle. Does look plenty big for people needing more room for more than 2 people.

For short termers weight and sized packed is a consideration as well as quick setup and take down.

Thank you Perry for your experiential comments. Nice looking shelter and well reviewed.

Thumbs up See our Coleman

Check out our album and see the Coleman in our camping lot. Worked out well. Just didn't use the neat sheets for the flooring that time. Will do so in FL for sure.
