    Yea... I popup camped way longer than my wife did and she rearrange just about everything and I had to spend an hour finding where the stuff was moved to... I had educate her about the proper weight in camper.. heavier in front and lighter in the back... I rearranged some things back where they should be. Other things she moved are fine...

    I was widowed 7 years ago and bought my PUP 6 years ago after trying ground camping again with my 6yo DS.

    Camping made me a widower. I have the camper and my DW has the big screen smart TV, surround sound and overstuffed chair. Haven't seen her in weeks. . . !

    HaHa XKPin, I laughed out loud. DH asked what was so funny, as he sat in his recliner, iPad on lap with the TV on. Meanwhile I'm strapping down the PU cover as we are preparing for a storm.

    They say opposites attract. Sometimes I wish I could go solo camping

    Well, DH really does not like camping. When kids were little, and I had a flexible work schedule, the boys and I often camped without him. He did join us some of the time. Now that the kids are grown, DH still hasn't caught the camping bug. But I love getting away by myself and try to at least every couple of months.

    Nice! Looks like you have some kind of tall closet in there? Plus the cabinet hanging from the ceiling ... nice touches.

    yep, its a small closet. I hang my rain gear,hoodies,ect in it. It slides to the middle and folds down in the isle infront of the shower. Both were factory for my model back in the early 90s haha. Also the huge fridge compared to my other smaller dometic.

    Love it! We added a mini fridge w/freezer to ours, as the built in one is too small. We left that one in place and use it as a cabinet for dry foods.

    Unfortunately, our fridge won't fit in the camper when closed, so it has to ride in our van until set up.

    I get to camp single half the time as the DH works, works, works & works some more! In his defense I would be happy camping most weekends and camping is a lot of work! Having said that, our pup has brought us closer together as our "new to us" Coleman Fleetwood Sea Pine has been one project after another so when my DH is not working, working, working, I'm able to get an afternoon w/him & our pup enjoying having this hobby together. We have come up with some fun mods and have really made our pup ours w/all the personal touches that we've added. My DH does complain that I've used up all his vacation time w/camping trips-but once we're there and set up he thanks me for it! Pop open a cold one, get the camp fire going, and then I have one happy camper on my hands [emoji12][emoji304][emoji41]

    We have been camping together since 1985....

    We have a single friend that camps with us quite frequently....We he met someone and brought her along on one of our trips....did he bring his camper????
    Nope, made her sleep in the van on an air mat next his Coleman porti-potty....with it getting down to almost freezing temps at night....
    She said she had a blast, he said he found a keeper....

    Well....the DW idea of camping is being able to see the trees from the comfort of her hotel window....that being said, I'd have to consider myself a "single camper"...except when the wee granddaughters want Papa to take them camping...which is all the time lately...lol
