Had one on our 14' pop up 10 years ago and loved it. Was a lot to set up especially after the pop up itself. But it was nice to have the extra space and the screen room for bugs.

Did you find that the extra weight of it helped to stabilize the awning in the wind?
Or did the extra area catch MORE wind, and make it even fussier in the breezes?

Once it's up it's Great, problem is it's a PIA to set up and take down. Lots of zipping and folding, takes up a lot of space when folded. If the weather is even warm you'll be sweating by the time you're done with setup.

I don't remember having problems with the wind on that awning, so it probably helped. That was a different type on there but I don't remember ever having it lift up. The room probably keeps the wind from getting under the awning. I seem to remember though that the bottom of the panels had grommets in them that you staked down so that may have helped too. I don't know if the one you are looking at would have that or not.

yeah, used to read about those things all the time over on the popup forum I used to frequent.

I can imagine it'd be nice
but
we once bought screen walls for an ez-up type popup canopy tent. Went through 3 or 4 of the tents and never even took the screen out of the package....

The thing I wouldn't like about it, especially with the MH
is that I like to be able to roll in the awning at night in case weather picks up at night.... or sometimes we might want to drive the MH into town for lunch.

Personally, I'd rather have a stand alone thing myself for better versatility....

It appears that this DOES have potential... Thanks!

Last I checked they weren't designed for power awnings, no cross arms to attach to. I have the Shade Pro Vista shades for ours & they work great & were designed for power awnings. They aren't completely enclosed, but provide some privacy & lots of shade. They fold up neatly into the vinyl bag provided (also plastic tent stakes & small rope) & take up less space than your patio mat.

The small top portion stays on the awning & the bottom zips on easily. Once on & staked out they can be unzipped & awnings rolled up in a matter of a couple minutes, next morning zip them back on.
When ordering you order by length & drop, the bottom portion is 6' tall by whatever length, the top portion depends on the total drop you want, mine are 9' drop (6' bottom x 3' top) on the main slide & 8' drop (6' bottom x 2' top) on slide awning.
They are very quality shades & have held up very well.
