Hey all, Glad to be here. I'm Melissa. I'm 37. I live in CT. I've driven fully across the country 3 times now for vacations (along with many other partial trips!) I'm an experienced tent and car camper and I ADORE it. I've been on a lazy hunt for a van or camper setup for YEARS and just bought my first PUP! She's a 1996 Hard side Palomino TXL-SC. Bought her from a guy who bought it 3 weeks before in an effort to get his wife to go camping (needless to say, she said heck no!). She seems to be in pretty good shape.. All the important parts work so far. Needs some TLC and for me to figure out what the heck to do about all the spray paint that they coated over everything. I grew up with my parents always having a camper. They started with a lil sunline and moved up to a coachman and just recently a new shiny RV. I've been pitching tents since I was old enough to stay outside by myself, so this is a brand new and exciting endeavor!
