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.

LOL, sorry cudn't resist. Yes, Haboob, a giant wall of dust only occurs in the Middle East and AZ. It is quite an experience if you have never been in one. We were on a boat one year when the Haboob warning hit and we had about 10 min to find a cliff to tuck in behind and wrap all our faces with bandanas to ride it out. I guess we qualify as carrying a Haboob emergency kit with us.

A haboob (Arabic: هَبوب habūb "blasting/drafting") is a type of intense dust storm carried on an atmospheric gravity current, also known as a Weather Front. Haboobs occur regularly in arid regions throughout the world.
Haboob - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The things one learns on this forum...

So I am ha boob then, as I am always blasting off at the mouth, and can create a certain "draft" effect.

A dust funnel cloud took up a tent at our campground in New Mexico. We could see the tent going miles and miles away into an uninhabited area. Do not think the owner found it.

I am interested in purchasing a screen room....probably a separate free standing one as I agree with the point that awnings need to be taken up where unexpected wind can occur. So, does anyone out there have one for sale, or further recommendations for ease of put up?

I've run into a few in the southwest, but when I was stationed at Camp Eagle (near Hue in Vietnam) they were far more impressive. We worked in large tents with the sides rolled up. You would hear a yell from those closest to the direction the storm was coming from, and had about 3-4 minutes to get the sides rolled down, or spend the next 4 hours cleaning red "dust" out of everything. It never blew down a tent, however these tents were heavy canvas & probably weighed as much as an Escape 17!

Speaking of screen rooms...

I know that at least one of you folks own the 6x6 CLAM, how's it working out IF you've actually used it? Has anyone made use of the side covers? do you need 2 or 3? I added it to my Amazon shopping cart a few days ago but haven't decided weather to pull the trigger on it as yet.

I have the smaller one and I like it, I had bought the larger one and returned it, too big and bulky. But the smaller one is perfect for 2 people and 2 dogs. Also got the optional rain covers, used both in Osoyoos last year. I believe the covers come in sets of 3?
