Create a fully enclosed room with the Turbo Lite 450 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 450.
I purchased the screen room to have a bug free environment for the kids at night if required. The tent is huge and the screen room was a fantastic addition for shoes and pantry etc. No instructions but easy to work out how it fitted onto the tent however, it is separate to the tent and there is a significant gap between the tent and the screen room. It didn't tension correction making zipping up the doors a two handed operation every time as they were slack. We couldn't get it to lay flat so one end was off the ground. If you wanted to keep both the tent and screen room bug free that would mean zipping up at least 3 doors due to the gap between the tent and it. The door(s) are in the front of the screen room not on the sides. A significant tent well resulted in some tripping. It was a good addition as a place to store stuff in, not too sure about making a bug free space though as we ended up leaving the inner door open and for half of the time, the outer door also due to the slackness of the wall. I can't fault Snowys for their service. I've used online ordering from them several times now, I've always got what I ordered and their products arrive from interstate quicker than I can get a letter from just up the road. They've even been known to phone me if they didn't have exactly what I had ordered. In this day and age I call that service and really appreciate it.
We purchased the Turbo lite 450, impressed with the internal space and accessory options. We prefer lots of light inside a tent, and protection from bugs and wildlife, so were delighted with the screen room accessory. As we couldn't see anything online here about the internal setup, we assumed it functioned like the solid panels, being velcro attached and an open floor. There were no instructions in the bag, so it took us a bit of time to work out how it attached to the existing tent. It was frustrating to discover it was like a separate capsule, with own roof and doors facing the tent. This meant airflow to the tent was compromised, as it was a double screen door. It also doesn't make use of the velcro, instead clipping and anchoring to the tent poles. This also meant a bug/wildlife access was possible between the tent and the screen room, unless you were prepared to zip up both sets of doors! The floor of the screen room also had high door openings and a very thin fabric, which was very slippery onto of a ground sheet. It required us to place rubber mats on top of the floor. It also took a lot of adjustments to get the tensioning right for the screen room to sit right between poles and pegs. The thin (solid) floor did not provide enough weight to enable easy zipping of the front access doors. For future weather protection, you would need to purchase the solid side walls to keep to rain out. If the rain came in, water would be trapped on the floor. This screen room would be so much better/safer/easier with no floor, and a velcro attachment to the tent fly.
As much as I love reading 5-star product reviews, feedback like yours is so valuable! Not only for us here at Snowys, but for anyone considering the screen room for their turbo tent. We appreciate you taking the time, thanks again. Laine :)
The 380 Tent is a brand new addition to the Black Wolf Turbo range, so it seems that may be why a compatible awning screen room is not available yet.
We've already had quite a bit of interest in the 380, so I'll be sure to pass on to Black Wolf that you'd love to see more from the range.
Does this seal with the tent or do you walk out of one room and into the next (with a non weatherproof gap in between)?
The Awning Screen Room doesn't seal/connect to the the tent - to use it you unzip the door of your turbo, then open the door of the Screen Room to enter the room.
The Screen Room clips onto the frame and ridgepole, but there isn't a very big gap between the two (they should almost touch).
If you are concerned about water getting in, you can also use the front and side panels in conjunction with the Screen Room which will offer protection from the rain and wind.
The screen room appears to have a floor but it is difficult to confirm in the photo.
Can I use this screenroom and still have the ability to attach my side walls to the tent at the same time?
