Hello I'm Ben and I just purchased my first camper, a 1997 Coleman by Fleetwood Sea Pine (aka Lucy) yesterday, graduating from tent camping. We're a family of five in Maryland and I grew up camping with my family in a pop up camper and loved it. When I first started looking at pop up campers I knew it would need to have AC for the wife and kids (ages 2, 8 and 11), and I also wanted a slide out and a front storage compartment. Other than that it needed to be in good condition, ready to go camping. Eventually I decided against the slide out and storage compartment since we'll be towing with a Honda Odyssey minivan and didn't want the extra weight. I figure this is our first "starter" camper and we can always upgrade later. When I found the Sea Pine for sale I started looking into it and liked that the base vehicle weight is 1,545 which I think is a reasonable starting point before gear, etc. I'm sure most of my posts on here will be related to questions and concerns about towing with a minivan and asking what others have done.
