    I don't have faith in my tow vehicle

    Selling it has crossed my mind but I totally redid the inside, mod poged the door, it has band stickers all over it. Totally made it my own. Which also kinda limits the field for buyers. Maybe I'll find a music festival loving mate in the near future that owns a truck:) And yes, Florida...

    I'm a Girl and I need tires

    Hey Folks, I just gotta say, I love this place and the wealth of knowledge I get from you folks. I went home and looked at the tires to get size, model, etc. ST17/S/80 D 13. The tire look fine to me, and I had two spares prior to loosing the one in this past trip. So, I still have a good...

    I don't have faith in my tow vehicle

    I'm going to sound like a total newb and a girl, I'm not sure if I have trailer breaks. I think I do. I have a 7 pole round hookup, does that mean yes? I just don't want to stress my car. As far as safety goes, I drive like an ole bluehair. I never did over 45 mph and I always anticipated...

    I don't have faith in my tow vehicle

    My husband and I split. We used to carry the pup with his Ford F150. I drive a 2008 Mitsbishi Endeavor with a tow capacity of 3500lb. I bought and had hitch installed and took the PUP out for the first time this past weekend. It did fine, definitely had to work a little harder but I saw no...

    Tell me about waterproofing canvas

    I used 303 and it has worked great. Easy to apply. Found a small spray bottle at a local boat store but then bought a gallon off Amazon which will probably last til the cows come home.

    I'm a Girl and I need tires

    Thanks, I'll call around to local shops. I like to support small business if possible, but that being said, I ordered my hitch and wiring harness from Etrailer and had a wonderful experience. I think I'll have the shop, if I go that route to show me how to repack the bearings so I can do them...

    I'm a Girl and I need tires

    To get to the point, I'm going through a divorce and the camper is my toy and I'm keeping it since I'm the one who has the interest in camping. I'm quite handy and do a good job at hitching up and hauling, fixing small jobs, etc. I pulled it for the first time this week using my SUV that I...

    Rust-Best Method

    They lost their grip. I'll take a picture in the next day or so when I pop her up. Almost make a circle with bottom open for the poles to snap into.

    Rust-Best Method

    Now that the weather is cooling down and I have a place to leave it popped up I want to start addressing some of the little issues I have been putting off. The hinges that lock the top are rusting and look ugly with orange rust on the white hinges and then the poles that prop up the bunk ends...

    Essential Oils

    My brother said jokingly about adding essential oils to the clean water. That's genius. Everytime we flush it'll smell like roses!

    Philly Folk Fest yo!!

    Sweet! Just got back from Clear Mountain View Fest here in NC. My PUP's first trip to a festival. And a pop up is definitely the way to go. We use to go in our firends 5th wheel and it was like a tin can if that generator wasn't running 24/7. Ours was always nice and airy! We took our...

    Ripped off stabilizers

    Okay. Finally at a real computer instead of my phone. They stabilizers were up but everything was riding a little low due to the truck bed being completely loaded down. With that load the hitch should have probably been flipped. The festival we camped at was in a field with gradual rollings...

    Ripped off stabilizers

    Title pretty much sums it up. Ripped off the two front stabilizers while trying to park and set Up. Darn rolling hills. we have it up with jacks now. What are more permanent solutions.

    Video of Everything?

    I would love some videos. If I knew what I was doing I'd make some. For instance, I'm getting ready to go on my first boondocking trip and this was going to be the first time we use the toliet. I looked at it yesterday and filled up the clean water tank and was wondering why it wouldn't...
