Hello

I have a 2005 Jayfeather 27' and I'm considering purchasing an add-a -room from Carefree ib CO. The model is 14' Vacationer. Does anyone have experience with one of these types of rooms. We are planning to become fulltimers in July 2014,

Thank you

Tom

I bought a used pop-up once that came with an add-a-room. We set it up once. To me, there is no use to it unless it is really cold outside and you are trying to break the cold from opening your door. Ours blocked the view from the best window in the camper, so it was deemed useless.

I have read here that they don't work well with some of the high-end awnings (rain sensing, electric, etc) as you have less manual control over the awning. I would also want to pay attention to the appliances that would be under it...will your furnace vent under it?

You might have more flexibility with toting something like this around - Quest 10' X 10' Mesh Screen - Dick's Sporting Goods

I don't have one but, I've heard that they are kind of difficult to set up and take down. Not, terribly so but, enough that they are best if you plan on camping in one place for a week or more at time. If your only going out for a few days it's just another thing you have wasting your time when you could be doing something else. But, again I don't have one so I really don't know , that's just what I've heard.

You need also to consider storage and that many camp grounds do not allow them.
