Last year/winter (2015) we left Michigan in mid January and headed to the SW for a bat project along the lower Colorado River for the month of Feb. We continued Scamping around national parks etc. and returned to Mi. early April. This winter we departed Mi. in November (2015) and still on the road. We are still in Florida doing another bat project, with Scamp
parked in front of a friends house for the past few weeks. We will be Scamping again next week and slowly heading north. Seems we will be back first week of April. So another 4+ months on the road.
We love our 16' Scamp
, but seems we need more room to do stuff while away from land based house for 3-4+ months at a time.
By stuff I mean things that take space e.g. a place to paint
as a semi-mobile studio, table space for research/work related computer stuff, dog grooming/bathing, Foreman grill and crock-pot cook space etc.
Kinda have a need for us to be quasi/temp or seasonally full timing?
After seeing a large array of setups it seems a screen room would be the better choice than up-sizing to a larger (19'-20' something) FGT for just 2 of us and our dog.
Bob and Mary have a great one we saw on Jekyll Island when we met them in December. It has solid (canvas) privacy walls as well as screen. We have seen many many screen only ones that folks in the Everglades N.P. had set up over picnic tables as well.
We are going to need to upgrade to a new/larger tow vehicle [Ford Explorer?] in the very near future and should then have room to carry this. Key on the TV is to NOT have the 3rd row of seats installed. Better to have storage space for screen room, extra coolers etc. Not sure if that is possible yet.
Any pros/cons of various brands/types and/or suggestions on screen rooms?
