We want a screen room while touring that is simple and quick.

Does anyone have any suggestions or know of any brands. We have seen one by DMH which is simple to put up but is fairly large when packed.

Thanks

John

Hi John

Try basecamp (kathmandoo) They sell a nice dome / screen house that should fit the bill.. I bought one For $145 they had a 50% off deal, nice well made unit and easy to put up comes in a nice carry bag (not too large) better quality than the k-mart style

regards

Oztent RV3/RV4

Brilliant design and easy to set up. Under 5 minutes. Would suit 4 people and small table.

Expensive but...........

Oztent web site says it is $299RRP. Dimension are 2.4m wide x 2m deep x 1.9m high when set up - bit squeezy for 4 IMHO, especially if you have gear in there too. They don't give the packed up dimensions or weight. Can you tell us Willem? I am wondering whether it is 2m long when packed, like other Oztents.

Des,

I had to go outside to measure it...lol

It packs away into a 1metre long bag. All very lightweight.

And yes....$299 but worth it. Has shade flaps on all sides and entry doors on all sides. Yes squeezy for 4 but if you want to beat the flies.... Luckily there are only 2 of us.

I'm guessing you mean a fly wire tent, got one at rays outdoors for ether 89 or 150 bucks, takes a few minutes to put up, packed away is 2 foot long and about 10 inch diameter, could probablt do better if I tried.....
7 of us lived in it on fraser keeping away from the march flies!!!!!

Rays also have one that packs up to a flat disc like a shower tent.

I saw the flat disc one at Rays. Didn't look too robust. Has anyone tried one?

Had one of those on Fraser. A lazy goanna went straight through it. Ever tried sewing flyscreen with fishing line? :-p

We got $150 single skin dome from Aussie Disp. Quite happy with it, for the price. 3m x 3m, and 2m high, when set up, folds to about 60cm x 20cm x 20cm, weighs about 6kg (from memory). Advantage is that it has side panels that zip down, so that you can screen or open each side for shade or rain protection as required. Wouldn't rely on it in a storm though. Mesh is fine enough, but very light: we had a mouse chew through on recent trip. (They love corn chips apparently.)
