    So we have always been tent people and admired the wheeled castles from a distance. Today 9/19/18 we crawled from that most basic of camping styles and launched into the unknown world of PUP camping.
    I have been lurking and reading for a while and finally created an account. Learned as much as I could and stepped into the camper market.
    We found out that with our TV a low weight was needed and that really limited our options. We began almost weekly pilgrimages hours from our home to locate a unicorn camper that met our budget, needs, and wants. After dry rot, black mold, broken cables, and dream campers being sold while we still waited in line we were not shaken.
    Then today we found it a 1995 Coleman Stoney Creek. She is within our limits, budget, and now garage.
    We are so excited and can’t wait to learn any and all you can offer. Thanks and see you in the parks.

    I've often thought of my PUP as a "wheeled castle". :) Welcome from Wisconsin!

    Welcome from Ontario Canada! Just out of curiosity.......why are the bed supports on the rear bed installed correctly but the bed supports on the front are straight down to the driveway?

    That's a good question durhamcamper. I was impressed that he was able to crank that camper off at what looks to be a perfect 90 degree angle in his driveway. Darn good for a newb. :)

    Okay so this is how the previous owner had it set up upon sale. I have since seen that they attach to the tongue of the trailer. I will be investigating further.

    Welcome t the Portal from N/W Fl panhandle. Best advice is practice set up and take down as well as operation of everything including (if possible a camp driveway) to learn about your NTU unit. Hope ya'll have many great adventures in the future with the unit. Good luck and happy Camping

    Greetings from Illinois. We also recently purchased a 1995 Coleman Stoney Creek. My family of 7 just spent the week of Thanksgiving at Land Between the Lakes in KY. Enjoy!
