    Do you use the pre-installed stovetop, or do you cook inside at all?

    We have an older pup. We removed the fridge, stove, and sink replacing them with storage. We're in Colorado and almost exclusively boondock. I don't want food of any kind inside. Honestly, the fridge barely held anything and the sink was so small it would be nearly impossible to use.

    Posts not centered with holes for springs!

    It may be a good idea to make sure the system is properly lubed. The Goshen system is purposely hard to crank due to the safety clutch. Here is an article that describes the maintenance. This should be done either way...

    Bunk bedding what do you use?

    We use an inflatable mattress and normal sheets and bedding. When we are ready to tear down we deflate the mattress and everything fits nicely.

    camping in the rain

    We took our poo up camping in March near Pueblo, Colorado. We just had the itch and wanted to get out. It was in the 30's and 40's (Fahrenheit) and the wind was gusting to 50-60 mph. It wasn't terrible. It was loud and the camper shook. But we played cards and ran the furnace along with a small...

    Greetings from Colorado!

    My wife and I purchased our 1996 Dutchmen 1204 in August of 2018. We've been steadily improving the pup ever since. Our camping consists mostly of boondocking and we've only been in a campground about seven of our 40+ nights out. Colorado is our home and we have really enjoyed "campering" in the...
