outdoor awning with kitchen tent

Hello Everyone:

We are about to order our 2017 Escape 5.0 TA, but cannot find a kitchen tent attachment on the list of options. Any ideas ? Thanks.

Hello Lee, do you mean the screen room option? Cannot comment on that option for the 2017, (read all of the new awning threads). We have a 2014 model and use a separate screen room to cook outside in buggy areas. The Clam screen rooms are real popular. Scott

Lee if you have the classic 2016 with Carefree awning , Escape has a awning screen room ,you can get from them for your awning . We have one for our 19 . It is very nice and everything goes in a a nice robust bag for storage . Pat

I spent some time on the Dometic website last night and they make it quite clear that you cannot attach a screen room to the new 2017 power awning. This includes their own "Patty O'Room". I'm disappointed too - I was quite looking forward to that option on my 17B. Here's hoping I'm wrong!!

I have the screen room on my 17B. I've only set it up a couple times in five years or so. Easy enough to do, but I can't be bothered. I have no desire to sit inside the screen room.
If mosquitoes are really bad and Deet doesn't work, I'll just go inside the trailer.
A positive; it's a lot easier to kill wasps and flies when you have them trapped against the mesh inside the screen room.

The Patty O'Room and new Veranda Room use the awning roller tube as part of the room's structure. The new awning has the roller attached to the trailer instead of on the outboard edge of the awning. I'd be surprised if Dometic doesn't come up with a solution for the new awning eventually.

I can almost see why the awning manufacturer wouldn't design a screen room for this model awning.


Scenerio: screen room attached, trailer owner away, wind picks up, awning retracts. Crunch! Unless, an override would automatically put the awning into manual mode when the screen room is attached.


Time will tell.

We took our Clam shelter out for the first time this week. It worked great and just like the video shows it took us less than a minute to set up.

A good point, but the screen room isn't compatible with the 9500 manual awning either. I suppose it has to to with the lack of side arms, which are used to support the structure.
