Gain Additional Outside Covering With An Awning For Your RV

As Spring sets upon us, and with Summer not too far away, the need for a little more protection from rains and creepy crawlies is increasing with every RV trip. Being outside is a huge part of RVing for us, as it is for every RVer, and we’d like to spend as much time enjoying the weather (good, or bad) as we can. We don’t travel thousands of miles a year to be cooped up in our travel trailer because it’s sprinkling out, or because the mosquitoes are thirsty. Of course, having an awning on your RV is a great way to keep the Summer Sun from beating down on your head, but it does little to protect you from bugs and moderate rains. So, how can you get the most from Mother Nature without sacrificing your comfort?

What you need is an RV screen room like the Carefree Vacation’r! Not only will you be able to protect yourself from rain and bugs, but you also just increased your living space substantially, as well as your level of privacy! Now, I know what some of you may be thinking, “Awww…one more thing to set up?”. Don’t fret, as you will see in the video below, set-up is fast and easy and takes about 10 min. The Carefree Vacation’r Screen Room is one simple piece that can be easily set up by just one person. Further, the Carefree Vacation’r has no poles, rafters or permanent fasteners to attach to your RV. When you are ready to vacate the park, you simply detach the screen room, fold it, roll it and pack it away.
