I really like the set up. But I have to ask, when it rains do you have any leakage were your easy up shelters meet?

This is a small trailer camping group. Check out the different state chapters and find a gathering near you to visit during your build. You will get some GREAT ideas.
Have already been on both sites while looking for plans, am always looking for ideas though. Saw pics of one with a slide on tales and trails yesterday and for sale in Lufkin....only a couple hours away from us.

Yes daddyphat808, that is a 23B! I can't remember where we got the add a room, but I do know camping world has them. It is called a "patty O room." I know they are expensive, but so worth it! We would have been miserable the last 5 days at the fort without it as the yellow flies were vicious! It's also nice to have that extra room for shoes, grill, (and dog) It also helps to cut down on those darn coquino shells in the rv, that the fort uses on their slabs. Here is another pic taken from the back so you can see it is almost the whole length of the rv. I call it my triple wide (with the slide out)

I have a Jayco 23B also and I like that add a room. My have to think about picking one up. How does it connect to your awning?

To attach the add a room, you have to put "snap-like doodads" on the side of rv, which the screen room attaches to. There are tension rods that work with your existing awning to hold the tops of the sides up. The big panel in the front just slides into the groove of the awning, then the whole thing zips together to make it pretty airtight. I know there are proper names for all these parts, but everyone knows what doodads are right?!
It takes about 15 minutes to set up and/or take down, but well worth it! We had the same thing on our p/u so when we bought the tt and didn't have one, we felt NAKED and missed it bad. Expensive, but makes a world of difference if your spending any length of time camping.
