The "hard" door was a stroke of genius too bad it did not catch on. Anyone who has ever had much experience with tents and such know that the damn zippers are the first thing to go.

I have one and love it... just don't get the Crappy of Colorado one.. the poles in it are way too thin.. IF you have an electric awning get jack poles (trucker style) to go from the roller tube to the ground for extra support in wind. .stake them to the ground. Hold the pole to the awning tube with a strap. I have photos of this a year or 2 ago in the MOD section

Thanks Seann45, what brand do you have?

BTW Two years ago I boondocked from mid May until mid October. We had solar power and caught rainwater in tanks for showers and washing and such.

What a wonderful learning experience that was. We had fans, lights, hot showers, and even tv/football (when the season started).

This is a photo of our camp (mine is the big camper)

The little Starcraft pop-up is mine as well.

Same here...had one for the pop up, but I think it would be a big hassle taking the shorter trips with the TT.

I had one for my PUP. Used it a few times but overall, I thought it was more work than it was worth. Presently we have one of the first up type screen gazebos. Less work to put up and we probably see more utility from it. Probably cost less overall too. Plus there are those instances where I've wanted to roll up the awning on the TT pronto!

Right now I have the Crappy of Colorado one.. been making due with it due to cost... The one I had on my last camper was a Patty-O-Room. Much better construction

IF I get a screen room, no matter the manufacturer, I will get one of these to use as a door instead of the zipper. Zippers do NOT last.

I had one that actually zipped onto the awning of my PUP. Well, it was supposed to zip on but one of the zippers cam from the factory installed backwards. I engineered a way to secure it using binder clips. We put it up a couple of times on extended trips but it was usually more hassle than it was worth.

yall got me curious now. Im new to this but having the option to screen in my 14' awing sounds awesome. Enlighten me on brands to look at and ones to stay away from. The bugs here in TX get pretty bad in the summer.

There are several companies that offer screen enclosures. You can see many of them here.
