    Hi all - just bought our first pop up after a summer of good experiences tent camping with the wife and three kids around Indiana and Illinois, mainly places with mountain bike trails and races. I love that the pop up is cozy and warm and comfortable to sleep in but not so big that my kids are tempted to be inside rather than outside!

    Towing is not as much of a hassle as I expected. Finding parts, on the other hand...

    Welcome

    If you add the make, model and year of your pup to your signature line, when you have questions or are in search of those elusive parts, it gives the rest of us a starting point.

    BTW, depending on what type of parts you're looking for, many items are not brand or model specific.

    Welcome to the portal!

    Not at all sure why you'd have problems finding parts for your 2003 Clipper. Contact the Coachmen Part Dept through their website, give them the camper's VIN and they'll be able to get you whatever you might need. They're owned/operated by Forest River RV and while they do encourage customers to order parts through dealers, in my experience, their customer service has been fantastic. http://www.coachmenrv.com/ContactUs.aspx

    Thanks for the welcome and suggestions! Turkey Run is great for hiking and there is canoeing as well. I've stayed in the lodge but never camped. Shades (nearby) is supposed to be a bit more rustic, but I've never tried it.
