Thanks in advance for the responses.
Hi there, beautiful new Trillium! I have a 1978 Trillium 4500, currently up for sale
. I was going to purchase an add a room for it last year but found a nice screen tent placed up beside the Trillium, to the side of the door, worked just fine.
This year, I am going to work on making my own screen room for my Boler
17'. The awning isn't that big so will buy a replacement screen for a screen tent, attach a 24" high band of canvas on the bottom. Then sew on some smaller weights as you find on the bottom of a shower curtain. Or loops on each corner so I can use tent pegs. The tricky part will be how to add it to the awning. I am thinking I will need a couple of support poles for sure.
I will keep you posted and if it works out fine, will post a how to and pattern on this site.
