Anyone know anything about this side "tent'?

She's a screen house, which means a whole bunch of other negatives (maybe). Just curious. Looks cool.

There was talk about that type of tent durning the first year this board was running. Can't remember if someone got it or not. Haven't heard anything sense. Did a quick serch, but didn't find the thread.

Have a good day.

That is a beauty. Real pretty.
I wonder how it would stand up in a rain storm. Pop ups are so handy.

How are your cabinetts coming? :thumbsup:

I have that screened room. I bought it off E-bay. I think I paid about $50.00 plus shipping.

I actually bought it months ago but just set it up for the first time in my garage last weekend. It is very easy to set up.
Folding back up is a little harder. :lol:

You will have to use the included stakes and ropes to secure it for windy days! I don't think it will keep the rain out. Looks like it is designed just to keep the bugs out.

The screen rooms are nice and convenient, portable and easily put up and down, but (mine at least) is not water proof. I use a tent fly over the top when the rain comes. If you get it, don't lose the instructions. It's a pain to fold up if you don't know the trick.
:oops:
Good luck

We have one of those. We like it. Just pop it up, no poles. The boss is cutting and hemming the back of it for the tear to fit in it from in front of the doors back. It will keep the galley and a small table screened in as well. The back of it is solid panels so it will also provide privacy By the doors for dressing.
It takes one person to set up. But it takes two to fold it up. Great for screen and shade. I don't know about rain yet but I don't think it's waterproof.

Steve, It can easily be folded up with one person, I do it all the time. I did lose my instructions once and I don't think 4 people could have done it with out them. It still fit inside but beware when opening the door :oops: . If done correctly, it folds up to a two foot circle. :shock:

Believe me they aren't water proof. But it is convenient. :thumbsup:

Your screen room looks much smaller than the one we are talking about.

I also needed two people to fold down the one I have.

Mines 14x8 and folds to about 3 1/2' . Me and the Boss wrestle it to get it down. But it's alot easier that our one with poles.

I think we have the same screen room.

I think I could almost get my Teardrop inside this screened room if it wasn't for the tongue. :lol:

Let me know how cutting/hemming the back works out. I have considered the same thing.

The one Kurt has in his picture looks about 5-6 feet square. I'm sure his is much easier to fold than ours.

Who's the manufacturer on that unit? I can't tell by the link I supplied, and I'd like to cjeck them out.

Maybe they make a rain proof unit with sides.

Besides the ease of setting it up, I like the fact that the opening doesn't go all the way to the floor. (I think I'm right about this, this.) Meaning it would match up real nice with a TD's elevated door openings.

Thanks, Endo.

I just did a quick Yahoo search, and take a look at THIS site:

http://www.bigtentguide.com/ez-twist-tent.html

On second thought, forget it. It's one of those sitesthat has everything that you can never actually eventually FIND,

You're right, mine is the 6'x6' model. I can see where you might need a small crew for the big one. :lol:
