Screened room

I have a 2010 J-Series popup. Where can I buy an attached screen room? I saw one on another and it fits in a bag similar to the awning bag. Can anyone help me?

I would probably start with Jayco or your dealership to get the correct one. They may have it available from parts. There are several options on eBay right now as well, but that could be a bit risky if you order the wrong one.

Check to make sure your awning is prepped for the room. There should be strips of Velcro or zippers around the underside of the awning flaps, our 1007 was Velcro, but I know Jayco changes parts suppliers from time to time. The Dometic awning/rooms look like they use zippers. Know which one you have.

One last word of advice is, be sure you really want to use it. In 8 years of ownership, we used ours 2 or 3 times only. It closes in the trailer quite a bit and it is a bit heavy to carry around all that time if you aren't going to use it. Mostly we just hung a small tarp across one end of the awning for privacy. We also have a Coleman Casa Loma 15*15 All Day Dome that we use for additional shelter that is much more versatile. Also note that we camp in a zone where the mosquitos are the size of Mac trucks (the horse and deer flies are made by Sikorsky); we quickly learned that screened rooms serve more to keep the trapped bugs (and birds and bats) inside than to keep them out.

Screened room

I had a Starcraft before my Jayco, and I used the screened room every time we went out. I got advice from a friend that I should avoid cooking inside my popup. Moisture and odors. So we use our screened room as our kitchen. A couple of citronella candles kept the mosquitoes out. Fly strip took care of flies. That said, the Starcraft was zippered and easy to set up. The Jayco takes a lot more time for setup/take down. The previous owner never used it, as I had to install all of the snaps on the camper. I also did not like the way it attached to the lift covers, and made some mods that work much better. Other than the setup effort, I really like mine and use it often.

We had a screen room that attached to a previous TT and we rarely used it; the problem we found that many campsites were either not wide enough or level the full width of the TT and the SR. We ended up getting a Coleman 10 x 10 Instant Up screen room and found this to work great. Quick and easy setup and 1/4 of the price we paid for the attached screen room.
