Ya I hear ya.. We have only had our popup out once last summer. But I bought late in the summer and it needed a front board replaced. How ever I hope to camp a few times before the rally weather and time pending. Just got our new potty the other day a thetford 550e curve. and I got a anti sway bar cause she gets squirrely at 60 and above. And now I am working on custom shower drain. I looked at some of them on fleebay and just went about bought parts and I am going to using collapsible 5 gallon bags as holding tanks for the shower and the sink being that they are gray water. alot easier to dump than a open bowl or small bucket. Not sure why Coleman would have put the shower drain right next to the door but they did. + I really am going for a boondock set up with our rig. I often have seen some great little spots of the side roads next to little creeks or rivers. And I hope to be able to stay in those kinds of places for a few days at a time.
