Add-A-Room

Campingworld has a neat accessory called, Add-A-Room which is what it name states. It hooks up to your awning. I'm wondering if my 2001 Bambi 19ft. awning would accommodate such an extra? Anyone have experience with this product? The information says it adapts to Dometic/A&E awnings. Is that what we have on our Airstreams?

You probably have a Zip Dee awning.

Post a couple of photo's and a number of members can ID it for you.

Thanks! We have to visit our Airstream in storage to have a look. Meantime, I'll look for the manual to see if it has the information. Is the 'Add-a-Room' a good item to have for extra space, does anyone think?

Zip Dee's "add-a-room", when properly and completely installed, can give total privacy. Zippered panels cover the screening, if you wish. The entrance can be zipped closed, and the best part is the water tube that's at the bottom.

Fill the tube with water, which seals the room to the ground, "AND", offers addtional strength and security should winds kick up.

I like the idea of an "outdoor room" myself but the unscreened, covered space is more open to socializing ...

Your correct, but with just the screening in place, you can chat thru the screen, bug free, with those on the outside, that are swatting the bugs.

Bob.

No we do not.

I can post that tomorrow from my office.

Or, send your e-mail via a PM, and I can send a photo today, that shows the screened room only.

For some reason, I cannot copy and paste using the Forums.

Buy extra velcro and tool to install snaps, if you really are trying to eliminate bugs you will need a custom fit. You will also need a ladder on setup, unless you can reach top of awning near rv. Ours was included from PO's and evidently had CW or some other installer put it together without considering bugs ability to walk, crawl or fly thru the gaps :-(

I had an "add a room" on a tent trailer I had years ago. It was custom made for the unit and had snaps down the sides and even under the trailer.

I set it up exactly one time and that was in the drive way when I first purchased the trailer. In my opinion, it was way too much work for way too little benefit. The only way to make this thing actually bug proof would be to velcro almost all of the side and bottom of the trailer. then you would have to anchor down the sides and walls and keep the large zipper opening closed.

If you really are looking for a bug free experience you might want to look into one of those screened enclosures that set up separately from your trailer. These take less time to erect and I would guess, cost less money.

The Zip Dee 'Tropic Room' with extra curtains for privacy sounds great. Now I need to find where to buy one for a 19' Bambi Safari. It will end up being sleeping space so the privacy aspect is important. Does it have to be professionally installed, or can a somewhat inept husband and wife team manage it on their own? That would be me and my DH....

I've also been thinking about one of these extra rooms.

You must first make sure that you have a "Zip Dee" awning.

A photo of the curb side (door side) of the trailer would be helpful.

Great instructions come with the Tropic rooms, that are helpful as long as the installer has some basic hand tools.

But, if you do not have a Zip Dee awning, I would then not suggest that you get their Tropic room.
