Camper Long Haul

We are in our pop up for 4 weeks on a trip from Pa. to Calf. and back. Our first night was a disaster! I set up in a rain storm. This was the first time set up and the storm made it the pits.
After 6 times at setting up we have it down pat. Now everything is wonderful. We were going to trade it in on the road but now we like itnow.
The Flagstaff 246D Mac is a very well built pop up and I can to everyone how much we like the heated mattress.
we have 3000 miles on it now and it is a very nice pop up. It takes 45 min to set up or take down. We stop at night now due to the fact we have organized the operation.
We spent the night in to very bad rain storms and everything was dry. This was the best thing lay in bed and hold on!!!!
We hit a big storm in Las Vegas. In Pa. we do not have lighting and hail like that. But the pop up was very good to us.

You're kidding, right? We were camping down in Lancaster Pa. in our 7000 lb., 29 ft Holiday Rambler Savoy when a t-storm hit and we thought it was Armageddon.

I thought it was going to take us and the camper with it.

Battling a T-storm in nothing more than a tent on wheels is challenging to say the least. Our first trailer was a Starcraft pop up with two king beds. It was barely big enough for 2 adults and three young kids but we made do. We spent a few nights in heavy rain storms and hated constantly reminding the kids to 'not touch the screens' so the wet didn't come in. It didn't take long to buy a 30 ft. Jayco TT with air, heat, shower and a real potty. That was a palace compared to the Starcraft. The worst was having to set-up or tear down in the rain then having to set-up at home letting the canvas and bedding dry out.
