Had a nice shakeout camping trip this past weekend in our new Coachmen Clipper 17BH. Everything seemed to work right except for the radio. Maybe the antenna wasn't hooked up? Easy to back in and set up compared to our pop up. I will say that the pop up has more room than the TT. It was just my wife and I this trip. Next trip in 2 weeks will be with 3 kids, 2 of them teens. Space will be pretty tight in there. Weather was great also. In the 60's all weekend. looking forward to lots of great weekends this summer!

We went from years of tent camping to last year buying a used Flagstaff 425D. It was nice, but it was about as much work to set up as a tent. I guess I'm getting lazier as I get older. I just want minimal set up when I get to a campground. I ended up trading the PU for a new trailer. I'll miss the size of the PU. It was huge. But the new camper offers alot of creature comforts. The kids spend most of their time outside anyway when we camp.

Just looking at the picture makes me want to camp! Glad you had a good time.
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
