Screen Room Are you in love with camping but not so crazy about the flying insects that come along with it? With spring just arriving and warmer weather approaching, these pesky bugs will be here before we know it. Are you not looking forward to hauling out the citronella candles and Tiki torches in hopes of keeping those bugs away? If so, it’s time to contemplate an RV screen room purchase. It’s one of the easiest, mess-free ways of keeping one’s family bug bite free.
RV screen rooms come in different forms. Some are designed to stand separate and apart from the motor home. Others are meant to be attached to an RV’s awning. Each screened enclosure option clearly has its own pros and cons. Let’s briefly explore a few of them:
Screen rooms that stand apart from motor homes typically disassemble quickly and come with their own compact carrying cases. Thus, they may be used with or without the motor home present. That tends to make them very convenient and versatile, especially for those who use their RV to drive around or don’t like to travel with cars in tow. Another benefit of the standalones are that they don't have to be used just for camping, they can be used anywhere including a backyard BBQ for a place to keep the food or even at a park for a picnic.
On the downside, because standalone screen houses are not attached to the RV, they may be hard to place. For example, the campsite may be too small, too uneven or configured in a way that makes setting up the screen house awkward or impractical. Plus, campers run the risk of tracking mud and other debris into the screen house as well as the RV.
Attached RV screen rooms, on the other hand, are designed to be an extension of the motor home itself. So there is typically no noticeable gap between the RV’s exterior walls and the screened in area. As a result, RVer's won’t be exposed to the elements while transporting items to and from the screen room. The attached RV screen rooms are also normally easy to set-up and break down when it’s time to leave the campsite. The only real disadvantage, as we alluded to previously, is that this would have to be stowed away any time the RV needs to be moved.
