Screening for awnings?

Hi All,

I just bought a used motorhome 1984 Itasca. Do they make a screen to attach to the awning? My wife is insisting that we need a screened in tent but i was hoping there might be an addon to the allready existing awning. Also, are screened in tents being used much?


Thanks

When I had a trailer I got a screen room for the awning.After using it a few times I decided a free standing screen room would be better.It is almost impossible to get a bug proof seal at the trailer .When a wind comes up and the awning has to go in it becomes a chore.The only time it was convenient was when my daughter and her husband lived in the trailer while building their house.They had a sheltered site where they could leave the awning and screens up.

At Dicks sporting goods store they sell a Quest awning for $100-$130. It goes up quickly by yourself. You can buy a complete screen enclosure(two piece), a solid 1/2 wall, and a tent enclosure. I have the screen enclosure and when it is windy or raining out, I take down one side of the screen and put up the wall. Keeps everything dry and the wife happy.

I agree with the portable screen room. They are easier to put up and take down. The ones on the awning require a lot of work and snaps on your coach. Never can keep the bugs out. Too many gaps.
