Create a fully enclosed room with the Turbo Lite 240 Awning Screenroom. Featuring a built in polyester floor, when combined with front and side panels the addition of a Turbo Screen Room creates a weather and bug proof space that truly expands the living space of your Turbo 240.
By the second day I think I had worked out how to use this. Instructions would have been appreciated. It clips to the centre awning pole and the side tent poles - this tricked me as I clipped it to the top tent poles to start with. There are loops to put the centre awning pole through. If your tent is already up, you will need to lift the awning off the poles to add the screen tent to the top of the awning poles. I found this easy enough to do, one pole at a time.
The screen room was for us to sleep in on a hot night. It filled this job perfectly. Unfortunately it then rained and we retreated into the tent, abandoning the screen room to see how much rain would come in through the sides. The answer was - too much! Next time it rains I will need to either unclip the screen room or put up the side walls. I kind of wish the floor of the screen room was made of the same fabric as the ground sheet, so that dirt and water inside it would not be an issue.
It is a pain to have to go through three doors to get into the tent - so when we didn’t need to screen room, I unclipped part of it and reclipped it bunched up at the front of the awning. Ugly but effective. Also only possible because I did not peg the corners closest to the tent - user error that worked out this time.
Overall quite happy with how this screen room worked for us on its first use.
We have been using the screen room for a while now and have no issues with it. No problem setting it up and there is a hook to hang a lantern, so I don't understand the previous reviews. It obviously gets wet in hard rain, so a side panel or two won't hurt.
Well this one was quite a puzzle for me and the dog as we couldn't figure it out at all. There seems to be No Instructions and no beginning and no end to the mass of black stuff that did not seem to fit in any which way at all so I gave up. I ended up using a piece of green shade cloth which was clipped on with a couple of bulldog clips and a piece of string to keep the wind or sun out as required. Simply could find no way to work out how the "Black Room" was supposed to come together so I ended up ditching it.
Sorry that your new screen room was a bit tricky setting up. Although it sounds like you've come up with a solution - please give us a call (1300 914 007), we'd love to help out in some way. Laine :)
Needed to create a mozzie proof space for sitting/cooking etc. Easy to attach to existing awning set up and should prove to do what we want it to - only set up but not used while camping as yet. Only one small 'issue' - when set up under the awning, it takes away ability to use any of the awning poles to hang/attach lights etc. Small quibble and easily got around - just didn't think of this prior to purchase.
Any chance this would fit on a 210 lite?
Unfortunately not. The Black Wolf Turbo Awning Screen Room 240 is just a little too big for the Black Wolf Turbo 210.
I know one of your other Q&A questions mentioned that this room would be rain and bug proof with side and front walls but what I'm wondering is if we are in a descent storm and there becomes quite a wet ground maybe some small water flow would the floor of this rooms floor keep the water out?
Good question. Being made from the same 500D polyester as the floor in the tent I'd expect the floor on the Screen Room to keep you as dry as the floor in your tent does.
I purchased the 240 Lite Plus tent along with matching ground sheet. If I also purchase this screen room (which then will sit on top of the extended ground sheet) are you suggesting I require another groundsheet to sit on the floor of the screen room to protect the mesh? In that case the mesh would be sandwiched between two groundsheets. Am wondering because of the previous Q & A.
The groundsheet extends to the end of the awning, the screen room (which has a solid 500D polyester floor) sits on top of the groundsheet. The sides of the screen room are mesh, but not the floor so that shouldn't be an issue.
Hi, me again. I heard this can be done but would like confirmation. When I camp it rarely rains and not much wind. Also, how waterproof will it and also the 240 lire be if it does rain? Thanks again.
Hi there. As I may wish to sleep in the screen room is the floor fully connected so nothing can get underneath? Are there any other accessories that will do this if I make it a bedroom? Thanks, Adam.
Is there a zipper or another fastening to stop the bugs getting into the main tent or is it just the clips?
