Default screen room for under awning

We have a Pleasureway 24' FL and are thinking about purchasing a screen room for the awning. Would like any suggestions on products and opinions

My first thought was, what a good idea! My second thought was, will it become a nuisance to constantly have to go thru the screen room to enter the van. Happy hunting.

All of those type of screen rooms that I've seen are very fiddly to put up, don't seal out the bugs very well and are bulky.

We use a stand-alone screen room if we stay in one place for more than a day that fits a box that is 2'x8"x8". Here's a link. CLICK ME.

It is light, inexpensive, easy to set up (less than 10 minutes), really keeps the bugs down and portable-you can move it over a picnic table easily.

It is also useful for marking your campsite when you leave for the day in your van.

Good suggestion Eric, that's kinda what I've been thinking after looking at an awning add-on...well I don't much bother with the awning...so a popup is 1/10th the price and more versatile.

If you go through my photos, specifically the "out and about" album, you'll see a picture of us using that screen room over a picnic table. Later that day as the sun moved and we were just sitting in chairs reading, we picked up the assembled room and moved it on to the asphalt pad.

The next day we moved it back over the table to cook breakfast.

A while back there was a small "screen room" device, just big enough to cover a couple of lawn chairs and a minitable. Springloaded deployment, if I recall.

Haven't seen it available for some time. Anyone know if it?
