Introducing myself from central IL. When I was younger around 4, my parents bought a new Coleman pop-up. Can't remember the model, but it had two queen beds, stove, furnace, sink. No toilet/refrigerator. This is how I grew up camping, I never camped in a tent until I was old enough to drive. My parents unfortunately sold it during their divorce when I was around 16. Mom didn't want it, Dad didn't have a place for it, nor a lot of money due to the divorce costs. Unfortunate too, it was in great condition on the inside, Mom always made sure it was spotless before putting it down. Not sure how much my dad sold it for, but he said it wasn't a lot. Low enough that he said they showed up, exchanged money for the title, hooked it up, and drove off, without even opening it. Anyhow, I'm 22 now, and I got on the idea of a pop up camper after talking with my brother. There is a rather large chance I'll be staying with him and his wife while I do a summer internship at the company he works for. They are currently re-doing the upstairs of their 1920's farmhouse, so I figured if I bought a cheap pop-up I could sleep there, and have somewhere private to go as well. I'd just park it on their property and run an extension cord for computer/fans/lights. In addition, I like camping and so does my girlfriend. She's not a huge fan of tent camping (although she'll do it, we tent camped at 8000 feet in Yosemite National Park when temps dropped to 40 °F at night), and she's pretty excited at the thought of a pop-up camper. I'm going to look at a $500 Starcraft one tomorrow...lift cables are broke, so it can't open. He'll probably go lower, but that's a topic for another thread, which I'll start. Anyhow, that's a little about me. I'm enjoy being on forums, so it's always cool to join a new one.
