    I have a 1978 Venture Canterbury by Starcraft

    Love the Vintage look of the PUP

    I just bought the unit
    After shopping around for the past 3 years and intensly shopping the past 3 months
    Shes old but shes solid so far ...
    Seems to be alot more stable, sturdy, not a flimsy as the newer models we have looked at
    Decided on the older unit 3 reasons
    1. Cash availability (dont want payments) Size equals more $$$
    2. LARGE with lots of storage
    2. Very NEW to the camping world ... wasnt sure i was going to like it and did not want to invest too much if i wasnt going to like it


    No Mods Yet but i am definately looking into roof mount AC unit if i can ...

    1983 Coleman Sun Valley. Bought it about six months ago. I've had the chance to use her twice so far, and I must say I'm happy with the purchase. It's in fantastic original shape. No mods yet, just a good cleaning and a couple of minor repairs.

    We're the new owners of a 2004 Fleetwood Tacoma. Loving it so far, and it appears to be all original. We'd like to add a roof vent (ours didn't come with one) eventually. All in good time!

    1966 Westholt with orginal canvas. Interior was changed/modified by a previous owner. Trailer is made of good US steel and is still solid. We bought it four years ago and have enjoyed every minute camping in it.

    Early sixties Nimrod. It's registered as a 65 but comparing stripe, taillights, and wheel arch to sales literature it appears to be a 60-62 model.

    Pockets & Melvin - S-W-E-E-T Pups!

    Melvin, you ever come down to the Lower 48 (specifically WA) to camp? We're 3 hours south of Osoyoos.

    Haven't camped south of the border yet. We're about 4 hours from the crossing and there is a heck of lot of camping within four hours where you don't have to deal with customs. Last time we drove down it took us 3 hours to cross the border coming back and that kind of hassle just isn't worth it.

    Bought new, since I wanted the least maintenance possible, being a single female. Have loved it every since I've made the purchase,
