Power Awning Add a Room-Dometec 9100

I had just ordered a Dometic 9100 power awing from camping world and was looking to purchase one of the "add a room" patios for the awning. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find anything that works with this power awning.
I know carefree makes the "Vacation'r" one for their eclipse power awning, but I can't seem to find anything for the Dometec.
Does anyone else have the Dometic 9100 and if so, do you have an add a room that works with it?
I can still cancel the 9100 awning order and switch to the eclipse model, but I am hoping I don't have to since the eclipse awning is almost twice as expensive as the Dometic.

Because of the design of the hardware for the power awnings, they don't make a screenroom for it. It is designed to flex in high winds withut damaging the hardware, automatically dump water off in heavy rains, and if the weather is bad enough, is made to be stored quickly. None of this is possible with a screenroom attached to it. Hope this will help.

Yes, but the Vacation'r awning from carefree is designed specifically to work with the Eclipse power awning. See (Vacation )

Based on this, it must be alot lighter than the older add a room designs.

Thats possible, however, unless things have changed drastically, you cannot mix Carefree and Dometic awning accessories. The beading where it fits into the roller tube is a different size between the two brands.
