15 Best RV Awning Screen Room Reviews (by price and type)


RVs allow us to enjoy the great outdoors while also enjoying the perks of an indoor living space. But did you know you can attach a screen room to your awning to have an even better outdoor experience? In this article, we’ll take a look at some RV awning screen room reviews.

Awning screen rooms are simple products that attach to your awning and provide a secure, safe, and airy (if you want) enclosure for you and your family to enjoy. Nothing beats having a drink inside a screen room during a brilliant sunset.

An RV screen room is simply an extension of your RV. It latches onto the built-in awning and covers the area from the shade to the ground.

Some screen rooms are basic and only provide a simple screen between you and the outdoor world, while others are fancier and have windows and doors built-in. But either way, you get extra space to live in.

There are a ton of great RV awning screen rooms of various sizes, so knowing what you need is important here.

Below, we’ll not only look at the best of the best RV awnings, but I’ll break it down by type of RV as well. And don’t worry. I eliminated those with bad reviews so you can feel good about any of these.

As there is no universal standard for the awning screen room sizes and designs, it is hard to pinpoint which ones are the best for your usage. I have divided the list into different categories. And, of course, some awnings are manual.

But a power awning is pretty common these days. So I’m focusing mostly on that.

So, I suggest you check out the whole list before making a purchase decision so that you’ll get a product that’s best for your RV needs.

Best high-end full screen rooms under $1,000

1. Lippert Components Solera Family Room

Looking for a screen room that works with both manual and powered devices?

The Lippert Components Solera Family Room might be what you’re looking for.

The screen room will provide you with around 60 ft (18.29 m²) of space.

The huge windows offer a great way to enjoy nature without the worry of getting bitten by mosquitoes and other insects.

The privacy panels are easy to operate, and I love that they are operable from the inside.

This means you can set them up without having to go outside and getting wet in the rain. The biggest concern here is that you’ll need to drill holes on the side of your RV in order to secure the Lippert Components Solera Family Room.

I can understand that you might be a bit hesitant to do so, especially if the RV or travel trailer is brand-new.

Pros

  • Beautiful large windows
  • Privacy shades can be set up from the inside
  • 12 sizes available
  • Very well-designed with lightweight materials

Cons

  • You’ll need to drill holes on the side of your RV

2. Shade Pro Villa Room Enclosure

Shade Pro Villa Room Enclosure can be bought directly from Amazon, or you can order it from the official website and have it tailor-made for your RV.

I found the standard sizes to be great as well, so you can’t go wrong either way.

The installation can take around 30 minutes and may require assistance from one other person. Overall, the quality of the screen room makes up for the longer installation process. It comes with reversible privacy flaps that can be installed inside or outside.

Pros

  • Reversible privacy panels
  • Door placement options
  • 12 different sizes available
  • Made with sturdy materials

Cons

  • No floor available

3. Dometic Awnings Screen Room for A-Frame Camper

A-Frame campers are a minority in the RV world.

But that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on adding a screen room to your camping experience!

It stows on the side of the pop-up, so no need to have to find a place for it inside your camper.

Keeps the rain out while still providing for a breeze and plenty of sun shade.

Easy set up too.

It has a domed ceiling so there’s plenty of headroom available.

If you have an A-frame camper, this one is a no-brainer to instantly expand your living space and enhance your camping experience.

Dometic is, of course, an extremely well-known brand in the RV world and they make everything from appliances to accessories. So they are a name you can trust.

Pros

  • Heavy-duty waterproof vinyl
  • Total protection from bugs
  • Ground guard means no wet ground

Cons

  • Only 1 review (but it is decent)

4. Carefree Buena Vista+ RV Awning Room

The Carefree Buena Vista+ RV Awning Room is one of the best options for RV owners if you’re not looking to drill into your RV.

It takes mere 15 minutes to set up after installation and can withstand a number of different weather environments.

I love how the company made a detailed video that can help you set it up in no time at all.

Comes with ground stakes to ensure it stays put.

There are dual window panels as well as transparent exterior ones.

These allow you to enjoy the view without weather elements getting in.

There are also black-out interior panels that can enhance your privacy, so it’s not just mesh walls.

Carefree of Colorado makes some excellent products.

Pros

  • No drilling required
  • Well-designed instruction video
  • 6 different sizes available
  • The dual vendor panels are great

Cons

  • You’ll need a letter to set this up

5. EQUUS Limited Add-A-Room

The EQUUS Limited Add-A-Room does exactly what the name suggests, it adds a whole room to your RV or 5th wheel.

It is also weatherproof and sturdily made despite being an affordable option.

Combine this with a waterproof awning, you have a well-protected room outside and a ton of open space.

Speaking of, if you’re wondering whether RV awnings are waterproof, here’s a recent article that talks about it in detail. Just click that link to read it on my site.

The best thing about the EQUUS Limited Add-A-Room is that it is fully reversible, this means you can have the privacy panels either on the inside or the outside.

Pros

  • It is completely reversible
  • Made with reinforced vinyl
  • It is an affordable option

Cons

  • The overall package is a bit heavy

Best screens and shades under $150

6. LATCH.IT RV Awning Shade Screen

This one gives you the option of just the front screen, just the sides, or the whole package, so it’s a nice way to customize and get exactly what you want.

Currently has only perfect reviews too and it’s an American-owned company.

Pros

  • Customizable for your space and needs
  • Blocks 89% of UV rays
  • Quick installation
  • Easy install
  • Heavy duty

7. Dulepax RV Awning Shade

This is great if you are having a hard time finding the right size shade or screen room for your awning.

That’s because they literally have dozens of size options to choose from.

And it’s currently WELL under $150 on Amazon, so it’s a great price.

Near perfect reviews with only minor complaints.

Do be aware this is just a sun shade that attaches to your awning and not a full-fledged screen room.

So if you are looking for something to keep the bugs away, this isn’t it.

While it’s lightweight, it’s not the heaviest-duty option out there. So I would retract it in high wind (might do that anyway even for heavy-duty ones).

Pros

  • 2 dozen sizes available
  • Blocks 86% of UV rays
  • 3-year warranty

Cons

  • Not full-sided, so it only blocks sun from the front
  • Complaints about the carrying bag
  • Some complain that it doesn’t block enough sun

8. CAREFREE Drop RV Awning EZ Zip

This is a front shade available in a boatload of sizes.

The best part is there are no hooks you have to screw into the walls of your RV. It mounts in seconds and you don’t even need a ladder.

The company has been in business since 1971.

So this isn’t someone just ordering cheap products off Ali Express who will be gone by next year.

Over 1,200 reviews and most are 5-star.

Pros

  • 14 size options
  • Blocks 85% of UV rays
  • Easy mount means no drilling your RV
  • No ladder required to put up or take down

Cons

  • Complaints that it no longer ships with the storage bag
  • Complaints that despite the company’s claim of “made in USA” the product comes with a “made in China” tag.

9. Tentproinc RV Awning Sun Shade

This is another front shade.

But down below in the budget area, I also include this company’s side shade.

So you can get all 3 sections for under $170 for a complete room.

Almost 2,600 reviews and most are 5-star too.

Dozens of size options and like their side shades, 6 different color options too; black, light grey, navy blue, beige, brown, and sky blue.

Heavy duty, and does a great job of blocking the sun, UV rays, and the wind and the rain.

Pros

  • Blocks 86% of UV rays
  • 3-year warranty
  • Strong and durable

Cons

  • Some complaints that it doesn’t block enough sun (but also plenty that were happy with the sun blockage)
  • Complaints about ease of installation

Best budget screens and shades under $80

10. EXCELFU RV Awning Shade Screen

This one is cheap. And totally customizable. Have just the front, just the sides, or both. And different size options to choose from.

Now if you opt for all sides, that does put the price out of the budget range. But it’s still inexpensive and a great deal.

And it’s got hundreds of ratings, most of which are 5-star,

Do be aware this is just a sun shade that attaches to your awning and not a full-fledged screen room.

So if you are looking for something to keep the bugs away, this isn’t it.

While it’s lightweight, it’s not the heaviest-duty option out there. So I would retract it in high wind (might do that anyway even for heavy-duty ones).

Pros

  • 7 options and sizes available
  • Blocks 86% of UV rays
  • Easy installation
  • 5-year warranty

Cons

  • Some complaints about durability (you get what you pay for)
  • Lots of complaints about zipper issues

CLICK HERE to check the current price on Amazon.


11. Shoppingsoon RV Awning Side Sun Shade

This one is cheap.

But as the name implies, you only get a side shade (one, not two).

Fits most RV awnings on market, such as Dometic (A and E), Lippert, Solera, Carefree, Fiamma, etc.

So if you are looking for something to keep the bugs away, this isn’t it by itself.

Interestingly, Amazon shows there are a small number of 1, 2, and 3-star reviews, but clicking on them brings up 0.

I’m not sure why that is. Maybe they had some but got them retracted? Or maybe they only left a star rating (like Alexa asks me to do sometimes), but not an actual written review?

So technically, all the reviews are really good.

Pros

  • People outside can’t see through it (but inside you can see out)
  • Perfect for the sides if you already have a front shade
  • Clips on quick and easy

Cons

  • Only 1 size option (9’x7′)

CLICK HERE to check the current price on Amazon.


12. RVINGPRO RV Awning Side Shade Kit

This one is cheap.

And as with a couple of the others, this is just a side shade.

Where this one excels is that it’s super dark and heavy duty.

So it not only blocks the sun and UV rays. But it also blocks wind and prying eyes.

Perfect for when you want to have privacy but still want to see the beautiful outdoors when your RV is facing others to the sides but not out the front.

2 size options available: 8′ x 15′ 3″ and 9′ x 7′. And both sizes are currently under $80.

Simply attach 1 hook to the side of your camper and the other hook at the end of the awning. 2 stainless steel hooks connect to the shade.

Pros

  • You can roll it up with the awning
  • An Amazon’s Choice product
  • Almost 200 ratings and only 1 is 1-star

Cons

  • Some complaints that it doesn’t block enough sun despite being quite dark (but also plenty that were happy with the sun blockage)

CLICK HERE to check the current price on Amazon.


13. Tentproinc RV Awning Side Shade

I included this one in here as it has 6 different color options which I thought was really cool.

Most screen rooms or sun shades just come in black or gray.

This one can be bought in black, light gray, beige, navy blue, brown, or sky blue.

Almost 700 reviews and most are 5-star too.

Only 1 size option though, which is 9′ x 7′.

Simply attach 1 hook to the side of your camper and the other hook at the end of the awning.

2 stainless steel hooks connect to the shade.

Designed to lower the temperature and help keep the rain out and cut the wind. But as with most awnings and screens and shades, I would put them away if heavy rain and/or wind is expected.

Above I listed the front-side sun shade, so it’s easy to get 1 of those and 2 of these for a complete room for under $170 for all 3 sections.

Pros

  • Blocks 86% of UV rays
  • Fits most awning brands such as Dometic, Carefree, Lippert, Fiamma, Solera, etc.
  • Strong and durable

Cons

  • Some complaints that it doesn’t block enough sun (but also plenty that were happy with the sun blockage)

Best freestanding tents

14. ABC Pop Up Canopy

If you’re looking for something that doesn’t need an awning for support, the ABC Pop Up canopy would do the job.

It is a 100-square-foot screen that only takes a couple of minutes to install.

I like the fact that it doesn’t need any tools to set up, and everything you’ll need is already inside the package.

This is a great canopy screen room for smaller trailer types or motorhome class B vehicles.

Pros

  • Can be set up in under a minute
  • Compact when packed
  • Comes with roof vents for circulation

Cons

  • Doesn’t include privacy walls

CLICK HERE to check the current price on Amazon.


15. Alvantor Screen House Canopy

The Alvantor Screen House Canopy is perfect for smaller trailers and Class B motorhomes.

Full disclosure: this does not attach to an awning. It’s meant to be a separate room that is stand-alone.

Sometimes you don’t have access to electric awnings or manual ones. You can simply pop up an outdoor canopy and get the job done.

This is especially great if you are tired of setting up RV awning screen rooms and simply need a temporary enclosure for either your guests or outdoor activities.

This screen room only takes seconds to set up and still provides a ton of extra living space.

Even better, it only weighs 15 lbs.

Pros

  • Can be ready to use in 15 seconds
  • Can house 10 people
  • Comes with an included storage bag
  • 4 different sizes available
  • The sides are made from mesh

Cons

  • Doesn’t have any weather protection

Conclusion

There are no universal RVs awning screen rooms, and nothing has a universal fit.

So having proper measurements before going shopping is important here. Your RV awning screen room should drop to the sides and the front, reaching the ground completely.

Typically, RV awnings are between 10 and 21 feet, so determining the width of your awning is also crucial here.
