First-time owner in Virginia

Hello! My name is Carlo and my family just purchased a 2012 Forest River Flagstaff HW pop-up camper last Saturday. We're very excited to use it this summer. The trailer looks to be in pretty good shape with just a few places where it's showing a little age. It is still quite the upgrade for us and the tents we've been using the past couple years. My neighbor across the street has a Coleman pop-up and says every pop-up owner has a story to tell. Can't wait to discover ours! In the days to come I'll be interested to see what kind of parts are (and aren't) available and look forward to interacting with some good folks here and in person as we enter into the RV community.

You and the family are going to have some great adventures. A pop up is ideal for the first timer . My wife and I bought a used pop up in 2015. We took it on a 10,287 mile shakedown cruise across the US and back. Here it is at Yellowstone, and Yosemite !
