How to install an add-a-room or screen room.
« on: June 12, 2011, 06:28:00 PM »
Here are the steps and photos to install a screen room or add-a-room.  Your make and model maybe different.
Installation time is about 20 minutes and it will increase your living space almost double.

First, you want to setup your awning like you normally would.
Next, you want to remove each awning pole and replace it after go through the add-a-room grommets.
Then, connect the Velcro across your horizontal awning pole.
That completes most of the front.

You now want to shorten the end poles again and insert them into the side wall pockets.
Next, tie the strings down both side poles and attach the Velcro on the outside.
You have the outer three side pretty much installed now.

Time to attached your add-a-room to the camper.
Wrap the lift system poles and Velcro.
Now, Velcro across the bottom of the camper.
Tie the corner posts and add a few stacks for the wind.

I have the same pup, but I cant seem to locate a screen room for it.  Do you have any info (supplier, model #, etc...) that could help me locate one that will fit?  Any assistance would be appreciated!

The awnings and screen rooms were made by Fleetwood/Coleman in PA. Out of business.....
 :( :(

Anyone know of a screen for another pop-up that could be modified?

Carefree makes awnings and screen rooms for their awnings only and they do make awnings for Coleman/Fleetwood.
But, the screen room made by carefree won't work with a coleman awning, only with carefree's.
That would be a lot of money to spend on an eleven year old pup.

The awning itself is in good shape, so I don't thin we'll be going that route anytime soon.  I'll check-out carefree's site and see where it leads.  Thanks for the assist!
