I am from Northern California. I have always been a tent camper , but my husband grew up with his family using a pop up. I swore I would never stray from tent camping however we were given an opportunity to buy a 1974 Starcraft Venture. Well it wasn't by far the best deal and we paid WAY more than we should have but we are turning it into a couples project. The bottom is pretty sound but the roof, canvas and lift system leave little to be desired. However, I have been watching and reading all I can about the roof repairs and such so we are excited. But we are worried about wiring diagrams, lift system diagrams and other items that we have no idea about in the trailer. I am super grateful there is a community forum that helps and post pictures of their trials and triumphs. Looking forward to many posts here!
