    I’m know that our lights maybe a bit over the top..but our middle daughter gave these party lights to us as a Christmas gift last year.
    We have only been camping one time in this camper since we purchased it last year. We haven’t been camping since we got these lights though ...and when we do finally go camping and get to use these lights at night...not sure how our camping neighbors will react to them...good thing there are many different setting to choose from
    Enjoy

    Nice. I bought some fairy lights with multiple settings much like yours that I have been using when I camp with power. As much as I like them they do not work on battery power and if it rains I have to protect the plug. So I found some 12v strip lights off Amazon which hopefully should solve my problem. Well, when I get the guts to hardwire it to my camper lights. In either case I will turn the lights off when going to bed. I sleep way better when It’s dark and I bet my camp neighbors would too.

    Camping friends call them Tacky Lights. We don't have any.

    I am thinking about adding fairy lights to my pop up. How do you attach fairy lights to the top edge of your pop up? Thanks.

    . I used badge clips. One side clips to the awning the other which normally holds a badge can attach to the light strand. Another person I saw just used small binder clips. Cheap and fairly easy. The badge clips are small enough you may even be able to keep them on the strand during storage.

    I haven't added any to my pup, but I do have some battery operated multi color strings that I use while tent camping. I like a little whimsy now and then!

    Here is our set up. They are the Canada 150th birthday lights. (Yes... I know they look like regular LED Christmas lights.. but they are in Canada's colors). Not shown here are my wife's battery flamingo lights (Although we have heard that displaying flamingos in the states means you're swingers... can anyone confirm? That is NOT the image we wish to display HAHA)
