I am new to the site but not new to camping. My first camping trip was actually at Cove Lake ,Tn with my parents who rented a camper about 1968-1969. We had no water hook ups, and had to carry our water to the camper then! That takes you back! Then later they purchased a Starcraft Pop up camper. We had many good times at Cove lake, and at Lindsay Mill on Norris Lake, Tn, at Myrtle Beach, and Disney World and St Augustine in Florida. It is my parents fault I like to camp! :>) I got married , had a daughter and my husband I purchased a Starcraft Pop Up in 1980 or 1981. We camped in this pop up untill about 1998. We have had many good times with our family and have been on many good trips to Myrtle Beach, Disney World, Florida, Kings Island in Ohio, and of course many trips to our smokey mountains and on Norris Lake. We gave our pop up to my Dad in 1998 and thought we were finished with camping after our daughter graduated from high school and went away to school. Well, we then found ourselves with nothing to do and went tent camping on the lake! Well, that didn't last long, and we bought another starcraft pop up with air conditioner. Those things are hard to crank up with Air on the top! Well, after about a year of my husband, myself and my daughter (when she went)cranking the thing up , we traded for a Starcraft Antiqua Camper. We kept it 4 or 5 years. We loved this camper but the tool box started holding moisture, and the trim inside was wrapped and started coming undone a little bit more every year. The air worked good except under the canvas during the summer. In the winter to keep warmer, we started leaving the beds in and sleeping on the table and sofa when it was just me and my husband. So, we decided to trade it in last spring 2010 for a Keystone Bullet Premier 28RL We have loved the camper, nicest one that I ever owned, nothing wrong with it, but not liked a floor plan with just one bedroom when we have family to go. So now we are in the process of buying a Forest River 8317RKSS. We pick it up this Friday! Our daughter told her husband something was wrong with us! LOL. "My parents kept the same pop up for 20 years!" She wants to know why we have purchased a RV NOW, after all those years of making her camp in a pop up without Air Conditioner! LOL My husband laughs and says "We are spending her inheritance!"
So.. anyways glad to meet you all, be on your site and I always enjoy learning new things!
