I always use the leveling jacks when required.

Used to see more screened in awnings than today, but I still see them now and then, especially in state parks. I don't know that I've seen an awning added to a screened in awning, but have seen plenty of tarps or other canopies over tables separate from awnings, so it's not that big a stretch.

Actually these take about 15 mins to set up


I can remember as a kid seeing the awning fully screened in like this.

15 min is very optimistic from the people I've seen setting them up.

Actually it does not, as it is attached to the manual or power awning

Depends if you are making a tent or already have 3/4's done using the awning Faster taking it up than putting it in place

This is someone adding a room to a Caravan, so no annexe to start with but he is taking little time.
Adding a Annexe on Caravan not a Motorhome

We've seen seen setups by camp hosts, etc., who are long term residents. Setup is a two person job, storage onboard takes a lot of space, careful packing. We had a '63 VW Westphalia van conversion that had a similar metal frame tent that fit the side of the camper, had a potty/changing room. Took time to set up and take down and stow away on top rack, but looked "cool". We have a free standing octogonal screen room that is like setting up a tent with stakes and support ropes. Have never used it camping but set it up in our backyard once.

I'm speaking of similar setups to your picture.

Also, not great when a wind storm rolls thru. Instead of 30 seconds to roll up the awning....
