Hello to all you regulators, I mean regulars around here We are a family of 4 + dog. A house divided between THE University of Texas Longhorns and texas tech. Guess which side I'm on Myself, DW (just learned that one) 5 1/2, and an 8 month. We are extreme newbies here, and we are currently shopping for a pop up for the very first time, having absolutely zero experience in the RV world. Going to buy in February sometime. We've learned how to tent and cabin camp at most of the campgrounds within 100 miles of Corpus Christi. We will be TW (just learned that one too) a 1997 Toyota 4Runner V6, which according to the owners manual has a towing cap at 5K lbs, which Im sure is plenty for a pop up.... or is it? lol I really don't know. We are such newbs that, as I have been slowly preparing my 4Runner for towing (shopping for tires, fixing oil leaks, tune-up etc.), I just accidentally discovered I had the trailer lights already run on the vehicle as I was checking my spare tire's air pressure under the back. Ive had the vehicle for 6 years and I was about to get an appointment to have them installed. To save some pride, well I tried to, I got my multimeter to check to see if they work still seems like they do, but i need a second pair of feet to step on the brake for me. So far, as in what we are looking for in a pop up, my rookie senses are telling me to go AsimpleAP as in the more things on a camper there are, the more things that can break. So, any advice on the must haves and don't gets are Beyond appreciated. Any links to post on this site or buyers guides that are really good etc. Are soooooo welcome as well. I look forward to learning with all of you (I DON'T say Y'ALL ) and the fun that will follow.
