    Good evening from the Montreal area in beautiful Quebec, Canada! I've always been a fan of canoe-camping but since meeting my wife, I have traded the canoe and tent for a used 2003 Coleman/Fleetwood Mesa (12 ft). Before buying the popup, we spent 2 summers camping in a tent with 3 kids aged 7-8-11. We'd pack up the car with just enough room to sit the kids, with a small trailer to hold the 5 bikes and whatever did not fit in the car! We finally bought the popup, and a Dodge Journey to pull it. We've had the setup for three years now, and enjoy it every time we get a chance. Its a good thing too, because now that the kids have grown, I doubt we could have fit everything in the car the way we used to!

    Anyways, I've been browsing the forums for a while, and thought it would be time to join in on the fun with you guys!

    Welcome from N/W Fl panhandle. I am an EX canoe camper and love it, I mostly solo and have a Oldtown 12 ft solo, but I also decided to give it up, at 76 and medical problems, I found it easier, and more comfortable on these old bones to camp in our small TT.
