    My name is Mike and I live in Austin, TX. After being told no by my wife repeatedly, I went out and bought a pop-up in July of this year after finding a deal that looked too good to be true (it wasn't). I began camping when I was little with my family in state parks all over Texas in a pop-up. In our pop-up now, we have been out five times since July and have loved every minute of it....my wife has been very pleased with how comfortable campers can be.

    Our camper is a 1999 Coleman Niagara that is in really good shape. My only project on it has been the roof; I came up with a hopeful solution to the cracks that has worked very well up to this point.

    Anyways, happy to be here and looking to learn a lot in maintenance to keep my camper in tip top shape so my family and I can enjoy it for the long haul. Y'all have a Happy New Year!!

    Mike

    I'd say that's good enough! [;)] Camping such a great way to get out of town and explore. Glad you're having fun with it!
