    So she started looking at popups, but decided that the canvas sides wasn’t going to work for us. So I made the mistake of showing her some cool looking retro hard sided campers from the 70’s, and it was all over but the restoration! She found a 76 Apache Ramada in New Hampshire, and says “off you go!”. And now we’re designing a Taj Mahal on wheels. (Oh hell yes we are!!)

    Welcome from NM. We'd have had a popup long before we did if we still lived in the East. (I vividly remember the black flies from visiting my aunt and uncle in northern Maine, as well as mosquitoes and black flies in the ADKs, etc.))

    Congratulations on the NTU Pup and Welcome to the forum from Midway USA.

    I refuse to refer to anything from 1976 vintage or retro. I graduated from high school in 1976 and it was just the other day. [:)C]

    Welcome aboard from Northern neck Virginia...

    Although we have our OFF-ROAD POPUP camper we still find ourselves tent camping in our three room tent at times as well. They have those folding tent beds now where you slip in a air mattress... Then you can store stuff underneath one... Really works good for us in our three room tent. One of the back rooms fits the bed layout just perfect and has two entrances one from the front long room and one from the other side back room... The other back room becomes our catch all room when tent camping... Get to spread out in the front room and watch hdtv and all the other good camping things we bring along with us...

    Our Tent is a 12x15 style

    That would explain why I keep thinking I'm in my mid- to late-20s…
