    Hi, I’m Rebecca,

    I grew up camping and I’ve always loved being outdoors. My husband and I have a group of friends we’ve been camping with for the past six years or so.

    We finally got our “practice camper”. I loved it. 1978 Starcraft galaxy 6. Lime green Formica countertops. We struggled with all of the work it needed. -rotting top-a leak we couldn’t find— I took off the tent and repaired it with my sewing machine, but it still tore every time we used it. We also didn’t have the right vehicle to tow it, so we never went more than a few hundred miles.

    For our 20th anniversary we bought a brand new 2017 coachmen clipper and a used 2014 VW Touareg TDI.

    I am so excited to use it! Of course our kids aren’t really interested in camping with us more than once a year, this little pup is perfect for us.

    I just bought the exact same camper in September and put it up for the first time. Mine also has a rip on the back side of the canvas over the stove area. Did you ever find out why it was ripping? Also, does the leveling affect proper closure of the velcro to door quality? Or what does. Can't get it to line up. Cynthia
