    Do You Have An Axle??

    I encounter a gentleman today who stated and I quote, "MOST POP UPS DON'T HAVE AN AXLE, THEY USE TWO SEPARATE MOUNTS WITH A COIL SPRING." What the heck? Anyone here consider that statement to be true?

    Propane Connection to Stove and Furnace

    The PO disconnected the stove at the galley due to not ever using it and the connection where a hose would attach then attach to the stove was not capped. Are the stove and furnace fed off of the same line? Pup is in storage and this just came to mind.

    This hasn't happened to me yet but it came to mind recently and I'm wondering how this is done on a single axle trailer.

    Repairing Holes in Body of PUP

    I've seen many things done and suggested for filling holes prior to painting. One approach I'm not seeing is the use of Bondo. Is this something to explore or not?

    Tyler State Park

    Hello All. Planning a camping trip with the Grandsons in early June and was wondering if anyone had been to TSP recently. Have read some posts from years past that were not very positive regarding spaces for PUPs. I will be taking my NTM 1975 Apache Royal!

    Apache Campers

    Does anyone have any knowledge about these campers. Do the lift posts need to be lubricated like other types of popups? Should the bed slides be lubricated? I have looked on and the other sites and have reviewed the manual....nothing! Help!! [:!]

    2000 Tracker Ultralight Hybrid

    Is anyone familiar with or knows someone who has one of these? I am possibly driving 6 hours to look at one that the owner says is ready to go, no leaks, etc. My main concern is there was only this one production year.

    Closing the pup

    There are thousand of posts that address the proper opening and set up, but I can't find any that give specifics about closing the pup. My question is what is the proper way to fold the canvas as the roof is lowered? I've never seen it done as my S-I-L arranged the purchase.

    We all know it's gonna happen sometime. The dreaded SPUT! Wish my first one would have been something else. But there are always worse things. I forgot to make that second walk around to insure that ALL 4 hold downs are released and sure enough I missed one. Started raising the roof with...

    Propane - is there an encyclopedia out there?

    Is there a simple, concise authority about propane, connections, adapters, high pressure and low pressure? I start reading these posts and pretty soon I have a headache. The posters disagree on issues which is really bad for us novices. Too many acronyms being used which could cause a real...

    Converting PUP to small hardside TT

    I've considered a conversion that would be larger than a teardrop. Maybe 6 ft tall max. I'm not interested in all the frills. I don't cook, shower, or wash dishes in my PUP and I don't spend time in there except to sleep. It is usually one or two people but can be up to six. Anyone have...

    Planning A Complete Rebuild of my PUP's Roof

    Seems like I've read thousands of posts on lots of forums about these roofs and I want to build mine from scratch using the original measurements except for height. Instead of 1 x 8 sides I would rather go with 1 x 10's. I feel like this would give that little extra space when closing. On my...
