    Spent our first night in our NTU TT. For the most part we had everything we needed, over the last 20+ years of camping we had worked out a good system and had most everything we needed. One thing we know for sure - our mattress is awful, it is not gonna work - definitely need a better one.
    Decided to take a trip this afternoon to wally-world and pick up a few items - mistake!! DW went crazy, new dishes, silverware, tupperware, etc... $$$$$$$. Note to self, don't do that again.

    Still have a couple more items to pickup, but all things considering, it was a good test run. Next week end we head to a nearby park, counting down the days:grin:

    I think its a DW thing. You should have seen the pile of stuff that was "absolutely needed for proper camping" that she stacked in a corner over winter... Who knew, right?

    Yep. When we bought our Pup, DW did the same thing. Despite the fact that it's just her and me we have color coordinated table service for eight with matching table cloths. We keep a couple "tubes" of plastic cups around for every day use. But just in case we want to have a cocktail party at the campground we have glassware for 16. And let's not forget the two big suitcases full of clothes for a weekend at the lake.

    DW already is wanting to recover the couch as it doesn't match the dinette - it's a camper!! I told her to think of it as separate rooms :smiley: Its gotta be a DW thing as xZoomerZx mentioned.

    Next comes new curtains, then countertops. If she hasn't found Popup Princess, get that site blacklisted right away. Lots of danger there. [:)C]

    Tee hee! My drapes and covers are in excellent condition but of coarse the colors are less than ideal. Pop up princess and here keep making me wish I could sew and whip up something pretty!

    @Natureangel - if you're determined, there are no-sew ways to make curtains :smiley:
    I've been sewing for more than half a century, so when I discovered the strobe-light effect the original striped curtains in the Retro created, I made new ones. I was happy enough to transfer the quilt and quilted pillows from the pup to the TT. (The pup had a full bed, the TT has a short queen, so the quilt is little skimpy at the sides.) The TT does give me a destination for the quilts I'm working on at the moment.
    My husband wasn't sure why I wanted to add a stick-on back splash in the kitchen area, but humored me by installing it - then admitted he likes it better than the wall paper for that area.

    Temptress! I am keeping half an eye out for possible curtain materials and I think if I find the right one I'll jump in!

    my mom was the same way when my parents upgraded to their TT. I asked why she needed all the stuff, and she responded it didn't match the new decor. Never mind the fact everything sits in the cabinets when not used. Oh well, free supplies for my camper as I get the hand me downs.

    Our mattress was terrible too (might be that way from the factory). Previous owner threw in his memory foam topper which I thought we wouldn't use, but since we tried it we never sleep without it. A little pricey to buy new, but I highly recommend it.
