Hi everyone! My name is David, and my wife and I just purchased a 1988 StarCraft Starmate SD pop up. Previous owner refurbished/reinforced a lot of the hard work on it (new tires, roof sealant, interior ceiling panels, new utility hatches and light lenses, and serviced heating/air conditioner unit). Canvas and interior are in excellent shape too! Popped it up last weekend to give it a look, and the setup went fine (although getting the door into place was a bit of a workout.....) Unit is wired with a 15amp connection for lights/interior, a separate cord/plug for the air conditioning unit, and has city water hookup OR a 7 gallon tank under the sink compartment. We have two young kids, age 3 and a 2 month old baby. So our camping will likely be on modern pads with electric/water hookups at state parks in Nebraska & Iowa, and probably no more than 2 nights in a row until we find a groove with this whole camping thing. We're going to try some backyard camping this weekend to work out the kinks. Wish us luck on all of our adventures. Send us your best 'wish I had known....' tips and tricks that will help us have a great experience with all this!
