    End of an Era, Start of a New One

    Well, I just sold the popup to a nice family from Duluth, Minnesota. I must have taken good care of my pup because they only looked at it for two minutes before they said, “We’ll take it!” They didn’t even try to negotiate. I got my asking price, but I did have it priced to sell so I could get...

    It's still a ways off, but I was wondering if anyone has started making plans to go see either of the next two upcoming solar eclipses? Or is it too early for you to start making plans? The October 14, 2023 eclipse is an annular eclipse and the April 8, 2024 total eclipse is a total eclipse. A...

    Uh Oh! Another One Goes to the Dark Side!

    Well, after much thought and a ton of research, today I put down a deposit on a tow trailer. After owning our pup for six years (and camping in one as a kid) we made the move to the dark side. I have no complaints about our 2014 Flagstaff M-208, but over the past year there were two major shifts...

    Has Anyone Installed a Metal Tongue Box on a Pup Frame??

    If even possible, I was thinking about adding a tongue box on my pup and was wondering if anyone has done that? I want to upgrade from a Group 24 battery to a Group 27 (maybe two) and thought it would be nice to have a better enclosure than the usual small plastic box. I'm not talking about...

    Air Mattress Under the Stock Mattress - Sleep Number Bed for a Pup

    Has anyone tried to put an air mattress under the stock bunk end mattress? I did the obligatory Portal search, but couldn't find anything on the subject. I'm not talking about one of those over sized monstrosities that would make my nose touch the ceiling of the bunk end canvas, but rather...

I have a major down slope behind the slab so I parked it with it's nose down to make it lean forward away from the slope, but was thinking that maybe it...
