Welcome from michigan. Congrats on the new pup. We bought our new pup in may 2014. We love it. Make sure up tie down ur awning and set the legs to it on the ground nor the pup lower side wall. Gusts of wind can flip it up n over ur roof and the poles could damage ur roof or get damaged. Learned the hard way but only bent my awning poles.

You'll get a lot of enjoyment out of that PUP.

One of your first additions to it may need to be Popup Gizmos:
PopupGizmos

Gizmos keep the sun off of the bunk-end tenting, which makes a big difference on interior temps in the summer time. And in the spring and fall, it helps retain heat so your furnace runs less.

Have fun!

And they are easy to wash so bird poop is no longer a problem; as well as tree sap

Ok everyone has me thinking about getting gizmos. But do you leave the gizmos on when tearing down or do you have to fold n store them every time? They may help on AC conditions water run off too? That's the hard part about summer with AC you have to set the pup up at home cause the canvas got wet. I'm going to try the pool noodle but not sure if that works

I take mine off, not sure if the canvas would fold ok with them connected. But I use velcro to attach mine.
And by myself, the gizmos probably add about fifteen minutes to install on both ends, and that includes the connecting of the strings under the bed frames, and on mine, with the front deck and double tanks, it is hard to get under there to attach the strings together or to the railing.
