    FINALLY DONE! 1993 Starcraft Starmaster Vista 1224

    Looks great. I didn't realize Starcraft made some hardsides like that - all I have seen have been Rockwood and Palomino, and of course the classic Apache ones. I really wanted a hardside model but was never able to find one in decent shape, close and in my budget.

    Blackstone Covers/cases

    I was at a Walmart the other day and the carry bag for the 22" was on clearance. Might be worth a look - the newer ones at least seem to be thicker material than the one I have for my 17".

    Quick opinions needed - which PUP!

    If it were me I would just get a basic cheap battery so you can test all the 12V systems under battery power. It sounds like you will be camping with hookups most of the time, so get used to the new camper first. I haven’t had a working battery on mine since I bought it years ago, but I never...

    What is your opinion? Can you use a dual receiver upside down?

    No. Rule of thumb is that those things reduce your tongue weight pretty significantly. Use the bed for your bikes. You will probably need a drop hitch if the truck is too high. Using a drop hitch in conjunction with an extender like that is a recipe for failure IMO.

    Easy way to set up and take down awning?

    I am strictly a fair weather camper so I rarely deal with adverse weather. If I am staying longer than 2 nights, the awning gets deployed, and I often set up the screen room as well for the kitchen. My awning has no capability of attaching to the wall of the pup, so I stake it out. It uses...

    Robbers' Cave State Park

    Our scout troop camped there the year before covid I think, did the horse program at the stables that they offer. Very pretty park, would go back again. We were in the group camping area as well.

    How effective is portable or window AC in a popup?

    Depends on the size of your PUP. I have a 12’ box, slide out dinette and dual king bunks. In TX summers an 8k btu portable made little difference to me. That one time I used it was due to an electrical wiring issue in my power center that prevented using the roof air for a day. In full sun my...

    Rethinking food options during long drive days

    We pack a sack lunch. Usually deli meat or PB&J. Breakfast is usually McDonald’s - DW loves their sausage McMuffins, so we do that. If we have to do dinner before our destination, then we will just stop somewhere. Try and find something local usually, but sometimes due to timing/distance it will...

    Adding an awning

    With a little bit of work and some research you can DIY an awning to use the existing track. Cheap and simple.

    Time for a new grill

    I saw those before, they seemed like pretty nice units. I probably would have gotten one but found my Weber Q1200 on clearance for a steal at Target many years ago. I think yours gets hotter, but I really like the flip out shelves on mine. Can the Charbroil be adapted to the low pressure quick...

    20v battery tire inflator

    I have a Ryobi one that uses the same 18V batteries as my other tools/yard stuff. It works great - set the target psi and turn it on. Shuts off when done.

    Newbie having Lift cable/bearing issues

    Just sent you a PM. That link went dead a year or two ago unfortunately. I saved a copy of the manual though, but it is too big to host in the library here.

    Cant close PUP with 2" topper...

    I have a Jayco with dual king bunks and a slide out. I think my topper is 1.75” and I have the foam pads as well. I am just able to get the roof latched, but I cannot have anything else on the bunks which means all the bedding has to come off and get packed away. I do drop the roof and let it...

    Jayco 12 eagle series

    Call around to local Jayco dealers. You might get lucky. I replaced the canvas on my 99 Jayco several years ago with factory canvas. I did have to call a couple dealers - the one an hour up the road from me had the best price. Took a week or so for Jayco to ship it to the dealer. I think I paid...

    Do people only choose Pop Ups because they have no other choice?

    It was the only choice for me. I always wanted a pup from the standpoint of cheap and small with a big inside when popped up. I was never really in a position to get one for most of my life being an apartment dweller and unable to afford off site storage. Got married but camping wasn’t in the...

    Which canvas replacement company would everyone recommend ?

    I would say it depends on who has the pattern, and if they might have it in stock. Lead times I think are still pretty long to have one made. The stuff Bear Creek and CR make themselves have both received high marks. If I had to choose between the two I think I would lean towards Bear Creek - I...

    Ceiling light plug usb adapter question

    I ordered some mono plugs off Amazon, and then built a splitter with sockets on the end. This allowed me to still plug in the bunk light while also still having an extra 12V power source. I simply made a cig lighter socket instead with a mono plug, as my 12V bunk fan used that for power as well...

    Time to change where and when i camp

    Same here. Reservations needed way in advance, and the nearby SP options are always pretty full. There are no issues with generators, but since I always camp at a SP/ACOE park there is always electric. What we do see is lots of trash, rowdy campers and people inconsiderate of others space. More...
