    Greetings!

    We just recently acquired a 98 coleman santa fe, and we're getting ready to go on our first trip with the popup in a couple of weeks. Just wanted to introduce myself and say hello to the community! We've been remodeling our santa fe in the heat of the florida summer and that has been a challenge with some things, but we can't wait to see all the places this popup is gonna take us!
    It's great to meet you all!

    Thank you guys! We're excited. Although I've been an avid tent camper for most of my life, I'm excited to learn the new ins and outs of popup camping.
    Any tips that you wish you knew before hand on your first trip with a pop up?

    Camp Driveway is always recommended for a first trip. It's the best place to find problems and solutions.

    If you hit the road for the first trip, have a notepad and pencil handy to wright down things you need to add, leave home, fix, update, etc...

    Welcome aboard from the southern Jax area of FL. Glad to have you join us and if you have ANY questions these are the folks with the answers. Which part of FL do you call home? Enjoy.

    I'm in the greater Orlando area. We're going to Sebastian Inlet this Friday and I was a little disappointed with the site as we stopped by there on our way home from Phil Collins last week to check out the place as we drove close to it.
    The sites have no vegetation separation between one another. As a tent camper my whole life I've never experienced that. Is that a common trait of RV sites?

    Most of Fl State Parks have vegetation and separation between sites, Sebastian inlet is different in that there is very little, if any vegetation. The last time we camped at Sebastian Inlet the no-see-ums were so bad that I had to take the DW to the Dr. for medications so she could get some relief. Fishing is usually good at Sebastian inlet SP Fl. Has some of the best State Parks that I have visited over the years so do not let one park give you a bad impression of the all the Fl State Parks.
    Good luck and Happy Camping

    We've never done SI but as Nineoaks said there normally is a lot of vegetation between sites here. This doesn't include KOA or other Commercial Resorts/RV Parks. Some places are better than others and there are a few we love but seldom can find a spot; Blue Spring SP in Orange City comes to mind as well as Ft. Clinch up here in Fernandina. And yes we were tent campers also before our first PUP and now we're into a mega PUP with 2 king beds and all the toys.

    Best of luck and enjoy.
