    I have been lurking for years and finally convinced my husband to let me get a PUP...to try...for the summer...while he is deployed. LOL. We don't own tow vehicles, we have a Mazda 5 minivan (which is more like a station wagon and can't tow) and a Jetta. My parents are loaning me their Toyota Sequoia for the summer. So I'm on the hunt for a PUP! We currently live in Tennessee, but should receive orders to move by August. So who knows where we will end up! This site is extremely helpful. I love all the mods and pictures and explanations. Thanks!!!

    I should add that we have camped for a long time and we have two girls (10 and 7). We need to upgrade from tent camping, bc I'm tired of air mattresses and the laundry list of setting up when we get to camp!!

    Nice to have you here with is. We like air mattresses better than the foam pads many campers come with.....

    I don't blame you for that. Not to mention a flattened queen sized air mattress weighs approximately 20,000 lbs!! I never want to see another air mattress!

    Welcome and hope you find the perfect camper for your family!

    Welcome from N/W Fl panhandle. I hope you find the perfect unit for your needs soon. I spent 22 1/2 in the Navy and i know about orders and moving. which is a pain in the butt but necessary for needs of the military. Good Luck in the search and happy camping

    Welcome from Ohio!

    Check out the pre-purchase section for check lists of things to look for when buying your pup.
