We have the rear door screen, they haven't yet come out with one for a side door on an 06 interstate, which is actually an 05 dodge sprinter van.

We have found that the weather needs to be optimal to use ours, but it has been invaluable for places like boondocking on Padre Island. OMG!

They are pricey premade, but durable and space-efficient. We carry ours with us all the time.

We have looked at those attach-with-magnets screens made for house doors, and thought about just getting one of those for the cargo door. Would serve the purpose, they are relatively inexpensive, and are available now.

I would really like a small room to sit in, but I may start with an "as seen on TV" magnet unit to see if I like leaving the door open. I will probably also look for different types of tents and use just three sides, connecting the back side to either the awning or magnets to the top.

I'll look around this summer and see what I can come up with.

Surely you could order it to be shipped to the US. ??

I really like that first one.

Let us know what you decide to do.

If you do, insist on Incoterms DDP (Delivered Duty Paid). That means that the seller handles everything for you, right to your front door. You don't have to deal with shipping, import duties, or anything else. The seller just presents you with one lump-sum bill to cover everything. DDP only applies to across-the-border shipping.

International mail usually goes that way anyhow, but if a parcel service like UPS, FedEx, or any of the myriad others is involved, you should specify the shipping terms, just to be sure. You don't want to order only to find out you have an import duty to pay on delivery that you didn't know about, or that the package gets stopped in Customs and never makes it to you because buyer and seller each thought the other was going to fill out the customs declaration.

Zip Dee has screen rooms that fit their awnings.

Their screen rooms can also be equipped for total privacy.

Will they also fit an Interstate's Fiamma F65 awning?

Carefree

Zip Dee was not interested in talking> I got the feeling they did not want to compete with Fiama. I was given a name at Fiama to ask whether it woulld fit or not.

Has anyone purchased one of these?

Not a Carefree. I've got the Fiamma Privacy Room, which I have used only twice so far. You can see a picture of it here: Texas Piney Woods Rally 2012 - Photo Gallery. Only using it twice has been as much due to my choice of campgrounds as anything. One can't drive stakes into pavement, so when I stayed at campgrounds with paved sites, no Privacy Room. But that would be true for any screen room, not just a Fiamma.

I like the Fiamma Privacy Room, but it's a bear to set up— especially solo. The second time, it took about an hour to set up by myself, and 45 minutes to take down. I won't tell you how long it took the first time, but definitely much longer.

Side note, whatever screen room you get, or make, you'll need supplemental lighting in the screen room. The "porch light" on the side of an Interstate is barely bright enough to use as a nightlight inside a screened-in room— enough to keep from tripping over anything, but not good for much else.

Florida Room By Fiamma

I am going with Florida Room by Fiamma. Have not tried yet, but will let all know if I like it or not and whether the set up is efficient for overnight (I bought it for week or more trips, not really overnight).

For overnight and weekends, I am also adding screens to side door and back door to make short trips easier. After ordering several types of bug screens, I decided to have an upholster make mine as others did not not feel they would hold up.

I also modified the front seat captain chairs with removable cushions to make sleeping area for 2 older grandkids, again to use screen room only for longer trips without having to haul cots for extra sleepers.

I'll be interested to know that, too. I thought the Fiamma Florida Room didn't fit the F65 awnings, which is why I went with the Privacy Room.

At the time I bought mine, they didn't have the Privacy Room Light, or I might have gone with it instead. The polyester fabric is bound to be more lightweight than the vinyl fabric of the original Privacy Room.

Our 2006 Interstate is a 2005 Sprinter Van, and the ready made screens that cover the cargo door area are not available for 06 and earlier.

We ordered one of these from bugoffscreen.com, 48" x 80", and it arrived today.

Covers the cargo door opening when fully open and falls just below the running board. Good quality, black screen and adjustable tension rod holds it securely.

We rolled it up with tension rod attached, and it made a neat little package that slips into the fabric case for the windshield cover. Stores beneath a bench in the rear.

Not quite as nifty as a custom-fit screen, but it will do the job and was only $49.95 plus S&H!

I'll get a picture of it installed the first time we use it.

Please do send a picture. My 2010 seems to have curved headings where the tension bar would be attached, if I understand where it it to be connected.

I am in Nevada, unfortunately without the Airstream, for another week. I couldn't drive as work won't pay mileage but they will pay for air tickets. Indiana to Las Vegas is a little too far to pick up the fuel bill myself even though it would be my preferred way of travel.

Have you used something like this before?

Phil
