Screen room option question

For those of you who ordered and received the screen room option, does this include a line of snaps on the outside of the trailer? I was hoping for velcro or something that did not involve adding more holes. I saw a picture of another trailer that had the option but did not have it installed. You could see an outline on the unit where the screen room would snap, it was not attractive.
I think I would prefer having just the room without the snaps, there has to be some benefit with it in use but not attached/snapped to the trailer?

never in doubt, often wrong

Re: Screen room option question

Pretty sure they use snaps to attach it. There have only been a few days a year where bugs were bad enough that I felt I need any protection (I never wear bug dope). I find that a stand alone type shelter works just great for me, no holes for snaps, it can be put right over a picnic table, and when it eventially wears out before the trailer does, it can be replaced. I only carry it when I expect the bugs to be bad.

I counted 10 snaps on my 19 footer. All of the snaps are located on the lowest panel - hopefully the picture comes through. Thus far we haven't had the need to use the screen.
