Post Hello from Langley B.C.

Joined this morning as we picked up our 2013 Freedom 1050 popup last weekend. Currently sitting in the garage, and we almost have it completely stocked (few more items to arrive by courier). Our first trip is April 11-13th at Sasquatch Provincial Park, near Harrison Hot Springs B.C. (Mom is actually in NYC that weekend, so I have 2 kids and the three dogs alone - No problem).

We owned a older truck camper years ago, and have been tenting it the last two years. Just decided a purchase after booking on the Provincial website, as I was sore from sleeping on the ground.

We are a blended family with 6 kids total (13 and younger - so we had to keep the tent!), and live in Langley B.C. Canada. Pictures will be posted after the first trip!

That's a good looking unit! Sounds like the perfect trailer for your family needs! Pictures are great and make us feel we were there with ya! Welcome to the FR family!!

PS - we have a truck camper too...actually DH uses it for his solo trips & I take the hard sided pop up when I go alone or we go together. Agreed (at my age), the ground isn't so appealing!

There are many great places to camp in BC. We spend our winters at Living Forest CG in Nanaimo and our summers in Ontario.

Welcome to the forum and that is a great looking pop-up. I wish they had put those kind of grab bars on them years ago.
