    So....after maybe 10 or so hours reading threads here we have decided to join to share/learn and such. This afternoon I mentioned joining and my better half said she had done so as well. For the past year we have "van camped" in our 2015 Ram Promaster (just like a tall and long Sprinter van). I'm guessing we have logged 30-40 nights in Walmart parking lots, family member's driveways or just random places.

    Last Friday we saw a PUP for sale for $500 and knew we wanted it even after just passing by at 30mph....she kept saying if you want it turn around now and buy it. I ended up leaving a message and blah blah blah we made a deal for $400 for a 1983 Coleman pop up. Minutes after buying it we were on this site consuming tons of info and two hours after buying it we were at a campground.....a few days later working on rehabing it...a build thread will soon follow.

    Welcome to the portal and to the world of pop up camping and congrats on your ntu PUP. What model Coleman is it? My better half and I have an 84 Coleman Columbia and we just love it.

    Thanks for the welcomes!

    @ Fuzzybear, ours is a Columbia as well. It's amazing that something that old that is kept outdoors can be in such great shape.....unlike the low quality camping gear Coleman makes now.

    Stoked to have another owner of an '83 Columbia joined up. I look forward to sharing more of what I'm doing with you all and hopefully learning from you as well!
