    [CP] [PU] [RTM] Howdy, introducing us- We're tent campers, who have just gotten our first PU. We started out backpacking, then transitioned to a VW van for car camping. Now.. the ground is getting to hard or the pads are getting too thin- or BOTH. LOL. I even occasionally sleep in my horsetrailer when I'm at shows- no Living Qtrs- just a bedroll on the floor (yeah, I DO clean it and use rugs!). So now, we've taken the big jump and gotten a 95 Coachman CO 165 PU. We're taking our first trip over Labor Day. I sure wish I could join the Rally at Calico and meet my new PUP friends. Hopefully there will be more in CA. I'm always looking to make new friends and we LOVE camping- its always MY first choice for relaxation. Give me the woods and a nice stream, and I'm in heaven. I'm loving all the great info on this site. I've done hours of research reading thru past posts. I'm going to have to learn to have electricity when camping with the new PU- don't know if I'll like that yet.... Having FUN working on 'glamping' out the new PU. OH, we live in Lancaster, CA., and we've camped in ALL of the western US states thru the years, but CA is still our favorite for variety.

    Welcome to the portal from the Manitoba prairies!

    Don't worry, you'll love being able to turn on lights and run appliances like fans. If not, there's a simple solution, just don't plug in! [;D]

    Welcome from Washington state. There will be plenty of rally opportunities in California. They usually have at least 3 a year, and that's on a slow year. [:D]

    Hello and Welcome to the Portal from South Central Kentucky. Congrats on the N2U PUP. Now here's an idea for those with horse trailers...How about a horse trailer with a PUP or hybrid??? Many horse trailers have entered the darkside arena, but many more horse campers camp in remote areas where a PUP would be ideal....
