Before I start, a moment of honesty, my wife and I are aspiring campers. I, in no way, have claimed to know what I am doing, but we love camping and are doing our best to do our best at it. We just got back from our first trip in two years, and in our recently NTU PUP. The DH, DD (9 mos.) and I went to Wabamun Lake here in AB with some family. We booked the trip a month ago, obviously hoping for good weather. It rained for two days leading up to, and for, the whole weekend. We had nice mornings on Sat, Sun, and Mon, but it rained and stormed in the evenings. I had to pack and set the PUP down in the rain, arrive in the rain, then set up in the rain. We learned some things this trip: I know how to back up my trailer better than my BIL knows how to guide me Our door pops open randomly if we are not perfectly level Our PUP lets water in when towed in the rain (both beds were sopping wet, but no water came in once it was set up) Our awning is old and the storage bag unreliable (it ripped off) Always take the plug off the grey water drain before using the sink Our thermostat is temperamental at best Camping in the rain sucks DD sleeps in the PUP better than she sleeps at home and will play in her Pack n Play in the morning letting us sleep in (we had no idea she was awake until 8:30) Not only were we wet almost the whole weekend, but we could not build a fire to save our lives (almost literally), and to add insult to injury, we forgot half the food we planned to pack. We wound up spending most of our meals sharing with my Sis and her family in their 36' TT. I had some sun to pack up in though, which was nice. and as I did up the last roof clamp the hinge snapped and the whole thing fell apart in my hand, so I am now down a roof clamp. Oh, and we hit golf-ball sized hail on our drive home (while driving at 110 km/hr). Kind of a disheartening first adventure, but we will push through for another trip.
