One score and 16 years ago I bought my first Pup. My family and I purchased what we knew would be a gateway to family fun and adventure from a Coleman dealer in Shickshinny PA. They had a shiny brand new tan Columbia Pup with an awning and the whole works. It had an ice box, a gas stove, and lights if you had a hookup. We paid extra for a spare tire and mount. After experiencing tent and boat camping this Pup was down right comfortable and it had room for the wife and our young children. You could cook inside and those pull out bunks were soft. I don't remember that it had hot water. It did not have any kind of cooling other than the ceiling vent and no heating system either but so what it had a water proof roof and plenty of room inside compared to our tent. The screens get the bugs at bay too. Plus you never woke up with wet feet from waves breaking over the bow in the middle of the night. Heck could even leave your camping things stored inside between trips. Back then I pulled it with my medium blue metallic Ford LTD station wagon with factory air shocks. The family was happy. We were hooked. What was your first?
