    RockyRoo's Great Western Adventure!

    Very nice. Keep in mind there is 0 shade. Also, make sure your truck does not leave the pavement or designated pull off spots. Somebody in our group pulled off the road to take a picture of some buffalo (he was about 18 inches off the pavement) and he got a $400 ticket from a park ranger. I...

    Hopefully Badlands NP is in your future? We were out there years ago on our motorcycle (Sturgis) and it still to this day is one of the most fascinating things I've seen.

    Is my popup camper salvageable? Broken cable, broken corner support bar.

    The reno looks great! I've never re-done a pulley system, but as far as investment vs value goes, I think it's definitley worth it.

    pop up state inspections

    We must inspect ours in NY. Unfortunately, the only place within a reasonable distance to me requires appointments to inspect trailers, which they only do in the morning, M-F.
