As you can see, there is no issue washing around the snaps. They aren't big enough to notice.

I have the screen room and a clam. When it is just the two of us, I like the rain and bug protection at the door with the screen room. As noted, I had to buy a plastic step since the built in does not work with the bug skirt. Aftermarket installation was no problem.
Like the clam for larger groups because it fits over the table. I have used both at the same time. Another satisfied customer.
The zipper is a weakness around grandkids. I either don't zip or do it for them.
So good so far.

We have used our screen room just once in the year since we got our Escape - at Kokanee Creek Provincial Park last July - we were very happy not to get eaten alive by the mosquitoes!

Thanks for the feedback. For me, the biggest selling point on the awning screen room is being able to walk out of the trailer into it. I really like that it is an extension of the trailer. The downside seems to be the setup, and price. Does it roll up to be stored separately? How much room does it take up?

Set-up is no problem, really. Folds and stores in its own bag, about 3' x 2' x maybe 1'. Depends how much you squish it.

Our used trailer came with one and we've never used it, but the bag isn't very big and is stored in our garage with the double bed pillows (we use a permanent mattress). It's maybe a little bigger than a typical tote bag. I've not had any problems washing around the snaps, and my trailer is 10 years old and I don't see any signs of water intrusion anywhere, including the snap locations. I can imagine it being very handy in certain parts of the country, but in the NW we just don't have the mosquito populations some areas do.

People walk into them also. Some owners put a thread design or maybe stickers so that dogs and people do not walk into them. I never did get around to doing that on our screen door but will this time, I hope.

Not sure how you wouldn't notice that the screen room is zipped up.

I was thinking about our screen door and lots of folks have a problem with their dogs that way. The dogs may push right through though in some cases, zippers or not. Well, so might some people!
