I've seen more of this in europe, Italy & Swis than here. looks sort of like for a longer stay required to warrant the work.

I've seen it for weekend stays, but not so much in recent years. Could be we are staying in the wrong places for this - it's more prevalent in state parks and destination campgrounds, not so much in RV parks dominated by pullthrough sites and large RVs.

Basically your making the awning as the basis of a " tent" when it is very hot it acts as a shade cloth. You can have air-conditioning running into it.As well it is a very big room that adds to the slideouts. Attached to a conventional awning on the motohone does not take long at all to put up.

With most of the new units here having power awnings we do not see much of this, power awnings are not as safe and secure to have out in winds as the old manual ones. I do have a tie down system with poles to secure mine but if winds get much above 25mph I stow mine away.

With today’s weather patterns being erratic and often severe, it appears that I have been seeing setups like this less often.
I do see some seasonal campsites with add-on screen rooms but I have also seen them get trashed in storms with absentee owners.

Well, that’s about 14 minutes longer than it typically takes me to have a cold beer in my hand. [emoticon]

Water and/or electric if it’s there. If not, no problem.

Otherwise, it’s no jacks, no awnings, no shelters, no mats, no light strings, no leaf blowers, no satellite dishes, no flags, no signs.

Setup and takedown takes a ton of effort. Where to store that stuff is a concern too.
