I have the Arb 2500 awning and wanted to get the room, wish they still made the room with the windows tho.
I'm looking for options on a room to use mainly like a mudroom / changing and area for my pups to hang out

Out of curiosity, did the Darche Xtender 2 attach easily to the ARB awning?
Just for additional info, you can use the Foxwing awning extensions with the ARB awnings. You need to buy the Rhino Rack double zipper adapter thingy that slides into the ARB awning channel. I run that setup. It’s awesome! You can use it as a windbreak or have a 16ft awning if you use some poles and guy it out.

Here is Australia there are lots of knock off versions of the ARB tent - I have one for the 2.5 x 2m awning and picked it up on sale for about $150 AUD.

Have used it once - it is a bit of a pain to set up by myself but that is due to carrying some old injuries but if two people are doing it, it is really easy.

Also, the only other issue is the height inside, I am 190 cm (6'3") tall and my head rubs on the roof when standing up but this isn't a biggy.

Overall, works for me and I like it.

Some photos below for reference.

I have the ARB 2500, I have both the early and late rooms to go with it, there are pro's and cons for both rooms.
Early room, windows zip down but not across the bottom, blows a hoolie in there in the slightest wind. There is only one exit point which isn't always convenient.

Late Room. multiple exits, zips on everything, mosquito nets on everything too with zippers. wind dont get in but leaks like a collendar through the zips.

The awning itself can be setup in less than 2 minutes by one person, great bit of kit. Now that stockist have replacement poles has made it a better choice.

The only real fault I can pick with it are the strength of the aluminium poles, not very strong when pulled out to the 2500mm.

ARB also sell side and front windbreaks for these things.
A small design flaw is you cannot have the front wing attached at the same time as the room ....unless you add an extra C channel to the front edge.
