The clam is huge! And it's huge when not up too. Part of the reason I decided to purchase one of these instead:

I like my E Z up; I can have it open, full screen; 2 sides screen and 2 sides full cover or 2 sides covered. It packs 8" X8" X48". 10 X 10 set-up.

Nothing camping related, no fancy tools or performance enhancing products but a visually pleasing accoutrement.

You have to be careful at some state parks.
The rule is one camping unit per site.
Extra tents $13.00

Mike - Does your tent have solid sides that can be attached or rolled down, etc.?

And which brand is it? On an initial search, I can't seem to find that exact model...

"The clam is huge! And it's huge when not up too. Part of the reason I decided to purchase one of these instead:"

Note that there are two versions of the Clam 10' X 10' screen room. One stows at 8' long (too big) and one stows at 6' long.

The one I got is 10 X10 and about 7.5' tall in the center. It stows in a bag about 8" X 8" X 6' and fits crosswise in the AS trunk. The 6' length just makes it into the trunk door. I did get the wind/rain panels for mine as well. Again, the reason I preferred this one over all others is the quick pop-up feature of setup. No poles to fiddle with (except two at the door sides, which are also permanently attached to the assembly).

Literally a 1 minute setup (plus stake time if it is windy.)

Mike says : I purchased at Dicks Sporting goods. The Canopy is a Qwest 10x10 and purchased the Wind screen and screens. Total was about $125. I have had it about 7 years and still in very good shape.

Add To Airtandem reply: Suggestion: I would get the 12 x 12 with straight legs as the 10 x 10 has tapered and the size of the TOP is 8 x 8. One picnic table does fit. Bigger is better.

8" X 8" X 6' is kind of big when space is at a premium for full timing for the amount of use it would get. Mine fits in the draw by the door for comparison and weights 2lbs. Have a friend with the Clam. But he has a Class A. They're nice, just huge for instant setup. Mine is 12x12.

Gotcha, I just have learned myself well enough to know, if it's too much trouble to set up....I end up not doing it....and carrying it around for years without ever pulling it out.

Edit: I was a bit off on my guessing at the specs:

SET UP SIZE 140" x 140"
CENTER HEIGHT 90"
PACK SIZE 72" x 8" x 8"
PRODUCT WEIGHT (LBS) 34

One male LP quickc-onnect fitting.

Ok, that's not a big deal, but I needed it to finish the LP conversion of my Honda 1000i.

New storage and table option

It seemed that while there was plenty of storage in our 25FB FC for most everything, the pantry space is limited and it was difficult to find a convent place for the non-refrigerated food!!

So we removed the 32" cushion under the television and replaced it with a cheap plastic 3 drawer cabinet from K-Mart, and we also had room in that space for boxes of other stuff and an extra fresh water container as you can see in the photograph.

I wanted something more professional and functional. I contacted Airstream to get the manufacture and style number of the laminate used in our FC. I then constructed a 32" wide two drawer, 1 door storage removable unit as you can see in the photographs, it looks like it belongs. The drawers are FULL EXTENSION trays that hold wire baskets, and inside the door side, there is also a full extension tray for a wire basket that holds three gallons of water(we only like to use bottled water for some cooking and coffee, it's just us??), plus an extra shelf for another basket we keep things like potatoes/carrots/onions, etc in. (I am waiting for additional matching drawer pulls to arrive from the Factory......)

The cabinet leaves a space behind it for the portable vacuum, Zip-Dee chairs, and misc storage. ** We load up the wire baskets in the house, and leaving for a trip is much simpler as we just cary the baskets to the AS and drop them in the storage unit.***

The other thing I did was purchase an extra set of wall brackets for the dinette table, which I mounted next to the new cabinet. This allows us to position the dinette table on the road-side wall, and we can put our recliner chair where the table normal is to make it more comfortable for watching TV, etc.

I really enjoy customizing our AS as I have posted in the past.
