    Welcome from Korea!
    Looking for mods, huh? (Yelling in the background - "Hey guys, we got another one!" [LOL] )

    Be careful! It's called "tinkeritis", and there is no cure! [;)]

    Go to this thread My Favorite Mods, Tips, Tricks (and Blunders!)

    There is so much info there you'll be shocked! (or very happy!)

    Hey everyone

    New to all this. Picking up my first pop up camper in a few weeks. 1997 Colman Niagra. Any and all advice welcomed. Divorced with two young boys, 3 and 5. A buddy of mine just bought a pop up and is on his virgin run tonight. Looking forward to years of enjoyment and memories with the kids.

    Welcome from NM, from a native of WNY.
    Yes, lots of ideas on here. DH & I renovated our previous pup, and did mods to make it more useable for us. When we bought the new pup, we knew we'd removed the sink and so-called water tank (a 5-gal jug under the galley, not very useful for our habits), but waited for other changes until we'd take it out a couple of times. We had not had anything electric in the previous one, but had read enough on here that we changed to LEDs as soon as we bought the pup. I think that a lot of us do mods as we find things that will make things work smoother, fit with our camping style and usual climate, etc. You'll probably find the same thing, making mods that will work for your family. (BTW, a few ideas didn't work out as we'd thought, such a bunk end skirt, but it is fun to try new ideas.)
