Hi everyone,

Just found this great forum. We are a late 20's couple from Montreal, QC.

My wife and I love to go camping in tent, but we did less especially theses past years due to my back problems.

We went last year on the U.S. east coast, in Avalon (Cape May, NJ). We were with a couple of friends who had a pop.
We slept in their pop the last night because it was so hot in our tent (+35*C / +95*F). We greatly appreciated.

The mother of this same friend offered us his pop for a very good price and we have not been able to resist!

So we are now officially owner of a 2000 Rockwood premier pop-up! It's equipped with 2 propane tanks, a roof rack, 2" hitch on the back of the pup. The 2 tires are brand new from this summer. I will have to change/modify the faucet (It has a home faucet with only one line connected) and some touch up here and there, but for 1,4K$ I think it' a good deal.

Returning home! [:D]




I will have more details/indoor pictures this week-end!

Cheers,

Awesome! Such a beautiful area. I went to Montreal for work for a week.

My boss was looking for people to go to Italy. I volunteered. He said "Oh. You want to travel? Well, now that I know that, we really need someone to go to Montreal. In December. HAVE FUN!"

It was actually really fun, and I've never eaten that good in my life. Your beers are amazing. There was one red ale in particular I remember really liking.

Welcome!

I have severe back issues as well (surgery in 2010 and able to walk for 4 years straight now! yay!) and so when we camped in a tent, even the blow up mattress was hell on my back. We have just gotten our PUP and I am SOOOO excited to venture out. I'm sure we will make it into Ontario too as I'm from that area originally.

Have fun with your new PUP!

Yes it's a great city, very multicultural. We have A LOT of microbrewery and restaurant, maybe a bit too much. It's hard to stay in shape! Hehe.

The blow up mattress, my dear enemy... I could not stand anymore to wake with my back against the floor with the mattress deflated.

Welcome to the portal of power from Waterloo Ontario. My wife is from Montreal so we know it well.

SOOOOOO much good information and advice on here, but be careful, it's addictive.

Welcome! What did the previous owner use the hitch for? I spent several hours installing a hitch on the back of our Rockwood 1940LTD (similar sizing to your rig) only to have it unweight the tongue SO much, that I had nothing but sway... I ended up not being able to put a single thing on the hitch, and it was time/money wasted..

Good Luck, post up some more pics of your rig if you can!
