    Hello, I am from Sedona, AZ. I've done a lot of tent camping in my life and now I just bought a 2018 Coachman Clipper pop-up. I have a lot to learn about hitching up, towing, and setting the thing up. I plan to go solo most of the time, so I need to do some practicing. I'm psyched for the good weather to get here and get going.

    Practice makes perfect...and saves a lot of embarrassment at the campsite!;)

    Welcome to the PUP! That's why camp-driveway was invented....practice practice practice. Gives you the opportunity to see what all you will need also.

    Welcome from Northern Virginia. Like you I started out in a tent, acquired a popup and extended my camping season. Now I’m on my second popup. Love being able to stay warm and dry on a very rainy trip.

    Welcome to the forum. You will probably find it very useful. Make a check list for set up and take down. Make a list of things to take and keep revising it - have it ready the next time you go out. Once you get it set up, try it out in your driveway. Sleep overnight if you can. Next step, take it somewhere close - a lake, a camp ground, etc. and try one night and find out what works and what you forgot. Before you know it you will have it down pat. I've got 38,000 miles on my Aliner and have enjoyed the heck out of it.
