Add A Room

We have a 15'6" awning and are thinking about purchasing an Add A Room. Do you have to take them down in strong wind? Any Pro's or Con's?

Don't have one, but I have trouble figuring out why NOT !
it's not like it's brick and mortar or wind tested

I've got one, and I would not trust it in a strong wind. I think you would be taking a chance on the awning/MH and room being damaged.

Thanks Chuck, Do you use it often? and is it worth setting it up in your opinion?

Had one on our popup and only used when we were staying at least a week. It was great for eating bug free in the evenings.

I know at Walmart and camping world they sell screen tents. Maybe do that? Cheaper and usually quicker set up times. I thought about this so in case of bad weather it is a 100 dollar lost vs what the add a room could damage.

No, I don't use it very often. We generally stay shorter periods of time and find it too time consuming to put up and take down. If I were to stay longer, or possibly in colder weather it may be more useful.

we have had one on a 5W we have parked on a seasonal lot. we have used it every season for 10 years and have not had any problems with the windstorms we have had here. the trick i was told was to make sure you block the wind from coming under the trailer into the room. this will cause the awning to lift if you do not. they provide a vynil curtain with the room, but we closed it off with some dog ear fence. it makes it nive in rain or even when it gets real cool out.

Thank for all the responses, We're still not sold on the idea. Time will tell.
