    Hello and nice to meet you all! We just purchased a 1999 Jayco Eagle Qwest 10 last week. We have 2 kids 5 and 9 years old. I have ALWAYS wanted a camper and have been a tent camper for my whole life. Loving the "tent on wheels idea" of a popup! I told my husband when we got home, I felt like we just got married in Vegas- what did we do!? I also felt like I really didn't know what I was looking at, as far as the camper goes, until we got home and really went through it with a fine-toothed comb. Realized the canvas was in much worse condition than we originally thought. Ordered a new canvas and am playing with compounds to bring the exterior back to life. Will be digging into interior makeover very soon to get it rolling for spring and summer camping! Woo hoo!

    Welcome to the Portal from N/W Fl Panhandle and congrats on the NTU PUP. You will love camping in the Jayco, much better than a tent, especially in inclement weather, I know the two kids will really love it too. Other than on here you can try www.popupprincess.com for ideas to "make it your own" Wishing ya'll many great adventures in the future with your Jayco PUP. Good luck and Happy Camping

    Welcome! Post some pictures of your new popup. I just finished restoring my 2000 Jayco Qwest so if you have any questions or need to locate a part feel free to ask. Congrats!

    Welcome! We are from Chicago, but live in NW Indiana, for now. We are also doing some reno on our ntu pup, a 2000 Coleman Niagara. We've just returned from our rainy maiden voyage to Potato Creek State Park!

    Awesome! how was Potato Creek? We have a few trips planned to the dunes in the next few months, as well as Morris Lake and Turkey Run. We got a new tent from Jayco and it had a hole from the sewing machine so we are waiting on a new one to take our first trip. Fingers crossed it will be ready soon!

    Potato Creek SP was beautiful- large site, mountain bike/ hiking trails, fishing and swimming lakes. We will be at the Dunes twice in June and Turkey Run in July!
