Red face Screen?

So... How does one go about purchasing a screen that will fit on the awning for a 19'?

And, in your opinion, is it worth the purchase?

Are you talking a bug screen, as in a screen room, or a sun screen?

Some think the screen rooms are more trouble then they are worth, others like them. Order from the ETI.

Sun screen cold be nice at times, doesn't take up much room to store.

We were thinking of a screen room. So we could "screen lock" (v airlock) into the trailer, and also hang out outside when it is buggy.

But don't know how well they work...

Thanks!

We loved the one we had with our 21 and it did a reasonable job keeping insects out. It was fairly easy to put up but a bit time consuming so not worth it unless we were parked somewhere for 3 or 4 nights. By time consuming I mean 20-30 minutes but we were still at the amateur stage.

I prefer the stand alone bug tents. Yes, they are not directly connected for that convenience, but I believe that the convenience of being able to place them where best used is better, usually over a table.

I have the Clam Screen House (now called the Quick-set Escape). It is built very well, and I can set it up in less than 3 minutes now. Click on image for link.

Hi: Abeltaine... We've had two. one for our 5.0 and one for the 5.0TA. We have two additional ones and found one very necessary in S. Georgia. Our Fav. is a Kelty Shelter.http://www.kelty.com We landed there in the height of Sand Gnat season on our way home from Florida. Alf

Screen room

We have the screen room purchased from ETI for our 19. It sets up in less than 10 minutes and weighs about 10 pounds. It can be stored in the front box or under the bed. We like it because it makes the trailer seem so much bigger. Our dog enjoys being off leash and outside in the screen room.

We probably couldn't have one of those in the SW. You learn very quickly that all awnings have to be put up at night or when unattended. 15 minutes can go from a beautiful 75 degrees to a haboob with winds in excess of 70 mph. We've returned from an outing to major awning carnage at campgrounds where visitors aren't familiar with how things can happen in the SW.

So many new words and acronyms this week. Can you have snow haboobs?

Haboob? I have been accused of being one before.
