Patio Screen room

We are about to order a new Escape 21. We have made great use of the patio screen room on our Escape 19' when we set up for more than 2 days. It has been an excellent extension to the living space. Escape no longer sells the patio screen room with the new trailers. Is there another vendor who provides one that fits the awning on the new 21'? Does anyone know if the screen room for the 19' fits the awning on the 21'?

The screen room for a 2010 19 Classic is about two feet shorter than the awning on the 2013 Classic 21. That said a modification “add a “zipper in”panel” or set your own snaps and get a new piece of white vinyl for the skirt might be possible with judicious scissor and Sewing machine work.

Just for others that may not know you are referring to the manual Carefree Fiesta awning that is again available on the newer trailers. You can’t do a screen room with the Dometic electric awning. I would talk to Escape. Last I heard they still had a few laying around and were talking to Carefree to make the screen rooms an option again.

This was from a Tammy on 7/25:
“We are looking into this for you and will get back to you shortly. We do have a couple in our stock room however, we are unsure if they are the correct size.

Worse Case - If they are not the correct size we will be ordering some new ones in later this year. You will see them become available on our website under Options.”

I did write to the sales dept. at Escape and they said that while they had reverted back to the manual awnings, they had not restocked the screen rooms. I was wondering if there was a third-party vendor. I guess that the one from our Escape 19 will not easily fit the 21. No mention was made about any extras laying around the workshop, but I may call and see if there is any other option.

I’d call carefree and ask them if they make one for their awnings

Awning

Did I read that correctly. Escape has gone back to manual awnings and no longer offers the electric awning. Thanks.

My understanding is they have gone back to the Carefree Fiesta manual awning as standard and that the electric awning is available as a $700 option. On the ETI website standard features still (incorrectly) lists electric awning, but you will also notice it now listed under options.

We just bought a Clam and it is absolutely awesome, you can place it anywhere you want....and it won't attach to door...takes 5 minutes to set up and take down.

Another vote for the Clam, we went with the smaller model, fits inside the trailer.

Another small Clam owner

Two lawn chairs and the pup......but the wife still asks about a screen room under the awning of our Ď14 TA....I guess I could plead ignorance that Escape had them as an option, or they werenít available for a TA in 2014....but I guess I should research more....any other TA owners have them with an opinion?

I went with the little Clam too but don't use it much. We don't camp much when it's buggy, as in summer.

Hi: Tford... We have the screen room option. Have never put it up on the 5.0TA but had one on the 5.0 so we did it again. MHO was that the snaps for the edges are put on in the factory and sealed to the trailer. We have an old Woods shelter and a 13X11 Kelty shelter with opaque windows which we use occasionally. All three are a two person install. We have no clams. Alf

I wondered about sealing to the sides of the trailer, especially our curvy ones! I figured they would be some sort of ratchet strap option, but now Iíll have to look at your trailer picts closer!

Hi: Tford... Snaps at the top under the awning one on each side and at the bottom. Other snaps for the skirting that fits along the lower exposed door side. All of the hight is adjusted by how low you deploy the awning though!!!
Some options are best installed at the factory. Alf

It is time consuming and a second person makes it easier. I had one with my first Escape, used it once and never again since. As seen in the pictures, Your awning has to be at it's highest setting to make the walls straight and neat. Very heavy also...

Not enough bugs to bother setting it up. I store it in one of the benches that makes up the bed. One time we were assaulted by wasps. I found the screen room handy, in that it was easier to trap them inside the room than to swat them outside in the open air.

We have a couple favorite campsites along a NE Iowa trout stream. The 19 fit in nicely on grass. The ground fell away about 8 inches by the front edge of the awning.
Perfect setup for the screen room as the vinyl hem laid flat on the ground and the corners were very straight. It isn’t every day that you will encounter this alignment and when you don’t it does not look as nice but it is still effective on bugs. Nothing like setting in the screen room listenening to feeding trout in the dark, they’re eating bugs and I have beer and cheese. Some of their brethren are dressed and cooling on ice. I contemplate my situation and quote Gehrig outloud.
