    Hello everyone.

    My husband and I are so excited to be owners of a new-used 2005 Fleetwood Rushmore. It is in great shape and ready for its first voyage. We have been tent camping forever with our family of 3 teens and 1 Shih-Tzu. We are from Eastern PA.

    Can't wait to read through the discussions here. Already want to make some improvements to the pop-up and have been on Pinterest. Any advice would be appreciate!

    Welcome from Chicagoland! Definitely camp a few times before you start making any mods. Even a night in the driveway helps - that's how I learned that we really needed to add front stabilizers or that thing would rock like a boat on the ocean every time my 5-year-old rolls over.

    When you load up your cabinets and maybe add some clear-ish plastic drawer stacks, LABEL THEM!!! Just use some blue painters tape, write on it, stick it on the cabinet door/drawer. Then people will stop asking you where things are!

    Good luck!

    Welcome aboard fro N/W Fl. Panhandle, congrats on the NTU PUP. We usually camp with just us two, and of course our four camping Chihuahuas who love to camp. You might have a camper full with 3 teens and one little dog, but it is still better than camping on the ground in bad weather. Good Luck and Happy Camping
