    :BigGrin: We used to have them on our old Coachmen. It is called a 'Safari Room'. Most US RV accessory companies stock them. Such as Camping World. :Wink:

    Sorry we haven't got anything, why not get some big groundsheets and cut them to fit ?

    side panels can be obtained very cheaply if you are handy with needle and thread. Gazeebos are sold for under £25 with sides all round including windows, got mine after neighbor damaged his frame, for free. Can't get cheaper than that, just added velcro strips to fix in place

    After the weather we've had since Easter I certainly wouldn't like to think our safari room was made of second hand gazebo bits! Sorry, but they're expensive because they're made to keep out heat and bad weather; not the easiest things or fastest to put up and you don't build them just for a weekend, but once up and secured properly, wind and weatherproof. The Awning Company made ours, not cheap I'm told, but worth it, especially for a longer stay.

    I got mine from foxwell products or foxwell something have web address on computor at home ( in Italy at moment ).. Have to say have found front wall useful , have put whole thing up a few times would not bother most of the time to be fair.

    One down side I did get my main awning ripped one night last october when I had the whole thing up and a bad storm came up in middle of night. Had the safari room not been fitted I could have rolled up the main awning in a matter of mins and no damage done as it was needed a new awning for my A+E .

    Regards

    Lampie
