Welcome and congrats on your new camper. It's great when someone finds exactly what they are looking for.

Anywhere free. The campground fees here in California are pretty high. I'm set up for it with the large holding tanks on my Mini Lite and two Yamaha generators.

The Big Bear area is close to where I live, (Lake Elsinore) so it's where I've gone for years, both tent camping and renting cabins. I'm just afraid to leave my new favorite toy left unguarded. However, I'm up for desert camping while it's still cool enough, or anything.

I know about the black hole! It's under the head of the bed, and the only way to get to it is have my wife partly lift up the bed with me on it, and use something to grab whatever falls down there.

I cut a piece of paneling and stick it between the top of the mattress and the bed frame to keep the pillows in place.

Mark your territory before its too late.

Happy Camping!
Hehe, yeah, our boxer makes himself at home on the couch. We sometimes have to move him around to squeeze in (not easy!).

We set up the dinette kid bed for him to sleep on, but he tends to jump up with us some of the time.

For any other Murphy bed owners;

I knew that there was a nice storage space under the couch, but figured the only way to get to it was through the small crack made when the couch was partly folded up. I thought about it and came to the conclusion that there had to be a way into it from the front, so I made the mistake of thinking it hinged up, and ripped out the screws that held the hooks that really secured the front panel.

After fixing that, I bought two storage bins and now we slide them in and out. Sometimes when we park, I flip the panel around so the hooks don't scratch the bottom of the bed, and use it to keep pillows from falling behind the couch. With a small fabric table for a foot rest, it's almost a comfortable as my easy chair at home. This also lets us get to the storage bins without lifting the couch up to remove the front panel each time.

Not only can I not wait, I'm not going to.

I'm planning a trip at the end of March to the Mojave Preserve, out in the middle of the boon toolies, just to watch the flowers bloom. And a little bird watching. Hey, I'm retired!
