    Just joined the world of popup owners. Momma wanted more room so I swapped my SoCal Teardrop and just brought home a new Somerset E3 Evolution.

    I’ll be posting my thoughts shortly as there are already a few things I’ve noticed about it.

    Look forward to talking through things with everyone!

    Thanks! We’ve got some major rain coming so my initial thoughts will be postponed a bit.

    I’ve got nothing but great things to say about the group at Prosser RV that I bought this from. Mike was great and gave me a smoking price. No frills just prompt responses and a willingness to work with me. In and out within an hour.

    Now the fun starts, and I’ll do my best to document everything I’m planning to do. Stay tuned.

    What are you going to tote on the front deck?
    I looked at a model with a toy hauler deck on it, but it was too small for my big motorcycle so we passed it up.

    Welcome from Northern Neck Virginia...

    You gonna love your E3 Evolution trailer with the front deck. This is almost the same as my 2008 Starcarft R/T 14 Off-Road Popup... I looked at those back when I looking in 2008 and picked the Starcraft for its massive 6-inch frame...

    We only use our front deck for supplies and things we want to bring along with us on our outings. We like to camp off grid most of the the time up behind Harrisonburg VA and Skyline Drive sites. We go up and down the Blue Ridge Parkway some... About the only so called trips we make is down to Myrtle Beach SC and then always like to come back to Virginia going through the Smoky Mtns at Gatlinburg... ALso like going to Cloudland Canyon site at the Trenton GA exit off of I59...

    Between the 5X8 deck and my truck bed I can carry some serious camping supplies...

    Momabear watches her HDTV and I like to work the Ham Radio bands. We carry our own WIFI to run our tablets and computer etc. Like to check in with the kids every evening and do some bills and surf the internet some. Don't have a big enough WIFI setup to do any large down-streaming of TV... Always able to find something to watch OTA using my portable setup BATWING antenna looking at a nearby town.

    Will be watching to see what things you may be doing with your off-road machine...

    I am working on a new BATTERY Bank using two parallel groups or two 6V GC2 batteries in series. This will bring up my older 255Ah banks to 430AHs... Got my GC2 6V batteries from local Battery Plus store just a month ago. Should be ready to go this camping season.

    Never got the urge to do any long Distance RV Traveling. I guess my many years of Tent camping from the 60s and 70s makes me always want to go local camping...
