I have no awning,
Wondering what is the quickest, and simplest fix to put up by myself.
What do you all like the best?
I am thinking screen house to put right next to my 16 ft Casita. Something I might use as a second room maybe. Instant set up of some kind maybe? I am looking for something really simple and quick if possible
Who out there has a good suggestion?
Money will buy a fine dog, but only kindness will make him wag his tail.

It would seem to me that an EZ-UP would be the quickest. They make sides that attached to the canopy.

EZ-UP's accordian out and then can be raised to height. One person can work them by jostling it at one corner then move to the opposite corner. The only problem I find with the EZ-UP is that it's heavy and about 4 feet long when boxed so you need somewhere big to carry it. With sides you'd have that added storage requirement.

Having said all that, it's what I'd buy in your situation if you didn't want to add a permanent awning to your trailer.

The nice thing about a separate gizmo is that it's easy to set it up over the campsite picnic table, or put it on a part of the campsite that has a nice setting or shade or a view or whatever.

I like Joy's idea of having a small table that attaches to the side of her egg under her awning (which is a lot easier to deploy than most).

BTW, I just posted a skeeter repellent hint:
