New to pop-up camping
Hello all. We currently hail from Alabama. We just bought a used 1993 Rockwood XL 1040. Got a great deal on it through a friend and are exciting to get out and camp hopefully in a few weeks.
We have loved to tent camp as a family for a few years now, but the last couple of trips we got rained on with soaked sleeping bags and leaking air mattresses and ripped tents... And we decided it was time it get off the ground.
Our new camper seems to be solid. A friend found it a few hours away and attests to the interior quality. Only problem is that the lift system needs to be repaired. Hubby went up after the friend made the arrangements for us and hauled it back, so we haven't been inside. For the price we got it for we are not complaining. We are hoping a friend or two will be coming to help us raise the roof today so we can evaluate the lift system. Any tips, info, schematics to help would be great. Looking forward to many camping trips and maybe some fun renovations...
