Welcome! Many of us Hardside owners are reformed or recovering tenters so you've come to the right place. Looking forward to hearing and seeing pics of your experiences. I see on your profile that furniture making is among your interests. Are you thinking of any mods to the camper yet? Post pics if you do; this is a really receptive audience.
It's never too late to have a happy childhood!
