Don't buy the Carefree add a room.. they are made way to cheap.. get the patio room.. much stronger materials used.. ( have both the carefree room lasted 1 season.. the other lasted 3+ years as it is still usable)
ps find a different dealer..

Seann, are you talking about the Dometic Patty O'Room?

I think they're too pricey. I checked out both the carefree and the dometic. I'll hold off for now.

That was my take also. To expensive for what they are. At least more than I value them to be for the way I use my RV.

After having a patti room on our last trailer we decided to buy a free standing screen room with roll down flaps to use with this one. This has worked out really well for us as an option. It actually fits under our canopy, and we are able to take up the canopy in a storm without the nightmare of trying to quickly remove the patio room which of course is full of stuff etc. plus the free standing screen room only weighs about ten pounds, and our stuff stays nice and dry in the rain even if it gets windy.
Our neighbors had the unfortunate experience of having both canopy and attached screen room ripped right off their trailer by the wind this summer due to not having sufficient time to remove them....
just something to consider as an option.

The best made screen room I have ever seen, and I have one, is the Paha Que screen room. It has sides that you can close, 2 doors, and it will keep everything dry inside. www.pahaque.com
