    Hi all we are new to pop up camping and am very excited to purchase a 2002 Coleman Destiny model as our first venture in camping. The camper is in great shape and we are ready to bring this 12 yr old up to date with new curtains and some modifications I have been reading about. We will take her out the first weekend in December and look forward to reading and hearing about tips and tricks and modifications.

    Welcome to the portal, Dale and MaryAnne! Glad to have you aboard!

    Going forward, you might consider adding the year, make and model of your pup and tow vehicle (TV) to your signature and forum profile. It just makes things easier for everyone if you ask a question specific to your pup.

    You can do that by logging into your account then hovering over the "Profile" link at the top of the page and choosing "Forum Profile" from the submenu. Enter your information in the appropriate fields at the lower portion of the page then click "Change Profile" to save the changes.

    Happy camping!

    Welcome to the Portal. You're fortunate that your camping season is in full swing. Most of us up North have pretty much shutdown 'till Spring.

    As to mods to the PUP, you've come to the right place.

    Welcome from the Texas Panhandle (Amarillo). We're getting our first snow, but I am thinking of our next campout in spring. You'll find great info and great people on the portal.

    I love the Coleman Destiny. Welcome to the PUP life, it will soon become an addiction.
    Happy Camping.

    Welcome. You will really enjoy sleeping off the ground but still able to hear the nature outside. Lots of good help and information on this forum. Don't be afraid to ask for help.

    Welcome from the Texas Gulf Coast!
    I've never seen such a place as this site. You're gonna like it here!
    Everyone is interested in the success and fun of others, and increasing and sharing it.

    Check the section on Rallies. There you will find what's near you.
    We're going to our first one in Jan, and may bump into a member over the Thanksgiving break locally!
