Hello from Fridley - Minnesota! We just purchased a 'new to us' 1988 Palomino Stallion in August. Back in the early '90s I went camping with a friend in her family's pop up, and enjoyed it! My husband and I have experience in tent camping, but we're looking forward to new traditions/challenges as we approach our 40s. Being relatively new to the pop up camper scene, the awesome couple we bought it from showed us all the minor glitches when opening up and closing the camper. Our detailed notes/photos made our first solo opening/closing attempt a relative success. This weekend will be our first real trip to a place 30 miles away. At first I had grand visions of renovating the inside, but I'm now embracing it just the way it is. And it's now clear that maintaining the camper is first priority.
