I've been lurking for a while but thought I'd join today. We got our '00 Fairview last spring and renovated it throughout the summer. We painted, redid the floors, fixed several systems, re-covered the cushions and curtains, etc. We then took it on a 2000 mile trip in the fall to Yellowstone/Theodore Roosevelt NP and back. We also went to Lake Itasca and a forest up the North Shore in MN. I'm a homeschooling mom of 4 daughters, and my dh works 7 days on/ 7 days off, allowing for tons of family travel time all year round. Part of my motivation for getting a popup was to give us a cheaper way to travel. We've always been a roadtrip family, driving thousands of miles yearly to see things and visit people. This is just a way to let us do more! I grew up with popup campers. I was the oldest of 6 kids and popup camping allowed us to go on more vacations than we would otherwise have been able to do. When my dad died 1.5 years ago, I got a small inheritance he specifically wanted me to use to make memories with. We used half on big Disney trip and half to purchase our camper and do some renovations to it. Dh isn't big on camping, but the more "glamping" aspect of pop-up campers is much more palatable to him. We enjoy our camper, but we are more means-to-an-end style campers than, be-apart-of-nature style. We love nature, but we also like our electronics and air conditioning. As such, we rarely plan to boondock, and prefer electrical hookups when possible. DD10 has a National Parks Access Pass, so we are able to camp for half off in most national parks service campgrounds and many state parks, so if we can make it work, those are always our first choice. Oh, and we move a lot. We're currently in Duluth, MN near the North Shore, but will be moving to Arkansas in the next few months. And that's us! I look forward to contributing occasionally here. Oh, and the picture from the inside was before we finished. I don't have a picture yet of our finished remodel and there's still a foot of snow outside, so it will be a little while before I get to open it up.
