Designed to function as a fully enclosed room, the awning room includes a durable floor, two large mesh windows with roll up blinds and a zippered door with solid and mesh panels. The awning room is fully enclosed as it has an integrated roof that hangs just below the main awning canvas.
So I'm pretty familiar with ARB products, but I've never used their awnings or awning-rooms before.
I can say that the 2 stand up to the quality standard that ARB is world renowned for.
The Awning room is the perfect size for a queen size air mattress, and has doubled the sleeping capacity of our camp van. Its also perfect for escaping the light rain with the tarp floor rising up around 6" on all sides. This coupled with the awning roof meant that everything inside our little space stayed nice and dry.
Its also nice to fold up the rain flaps so we can just have the mesh covering the sides and alow a nice country breeze to pass through our vehicle-camproom. While you could fold 2/4 sides up completely, the mesh is particularly nice for keeping bugs out.
My only complaint is that the tent is pretty large, this means that in colder climate it will be challenging to keep the space warm, however if you're clever with a space heater and venting, you'll likely be just fine.
10/10 would recommend for those wanting to expand their already nice camp rig into a larger footprint.

Very cool accessory to a very nice awning. I love them both

1.0Quality product that didn't work for my situation.
Could not open the single outward opening door against the back wall and successfully access the zippers to get into the room. It needed a custom fit zippered door and I could find no one to do the work. Also, the awning is located only 6 ft. from the ground attached to my mini camper, and if I wanted to slant the roof to let rain runoff it would take the tension off the walls which would not be good in stiff winds.
These are considerations that could not be fully anticipated until I set it up to see how it worked.
I returned this quality product that did not meet MY needs.

5.0best screen room / tent on the market
the Awning room is fantastic. I have a nice summer screen room attached to my truck, and spacious enough for 3 adults to sleep comfortably. I purchased the 2000 x 2500 room.
