    How do you make coffee?

    We use an old coffee maker that had a stainless metal carafe. It works great. Hasn't broken yet. And we use it as a water heater for dish cleaning.

    LED LIGHTS worth the upgrade

    I have been switching all the lights on my trailer to LED. I got tired of wondering if my lights will work. With LEDs there is little worry. The LED brake lights I bought are RED LEDs so even if they lens breaks I'm still in compliance and safe. Just redid my overhead light with two double LED...

    Is a collapsible canopy worth it?

    We have a FirstUp canopy with the LED light kit and the wind wall kit. We wouldn't go camping without it. The LED string lights are awesome. We have only used the wind wall a couple of times but it saved the evening during a rain event. Was able to still hang out and have fun even during a...

    First Trip in the Nimrod

    For cold weather camping I'd suggest a good space heater like a ceramic disc Pelonis and an electric blanket or mattress heating pad. They make for some comfy sleeping when it's COLD outside.

    Who here has a vintage pop up?

    Love this thread. Haven't posted a pic of mine in a long time. Replaced the old acrylic in the windows with new polycarbonate. Cleaned up the aluminum a little. May see some new paint in the future. Who knows? We just seem to want to camp in it instead of work on it! [8D]

    Zooland Family Campground in Asheboro.

    We will be camping there again this weekend for our Apache round up. Private campgrounds typically aren't our preference but this place is nice for our gatherings. Has something to offer most everyone in our group. Plus it's next to the zoo.
