    Hi there from the Great White North! eh
    Thankfully, the 'white' part is gone, for now, and we will be venturing out to enjoy the 'great' part very soon!
    So, we just picked up this Colemen/Fleetwood Santa Fe 10 footer in amazing condition from an older couple that just weren't using it anymore. They had it stored in a barn when not in use and they never used the kitchen area. There were some issues with drawers and a few small holes they had patched poorly, but it won't take much to bring it up a notch in condition.
    We cleaned it out and prepped it for the first outting with dishes and silverware (the paper kind also) as well as bedding and a small electric heater. Lastly we scrubbed the outside down really good and cleaned up the wheels, the grease from the freshly packed bearings can make quite a mess!
    Lastly we need to outfit the propane tank and onboard battery to complete the deal, but for now it's ready for the road and so are we.
    Looking forward to picking your brains here in this forum for some good ideas along the road to pop-up trailer fun!
    Cheers
