Don't really need them for clearance, but the next thing I want to do is tube fenders.
Same here, daily driver for the wife and for pulling the PUP. She said no to bigger tires. I just have to remember, happy wife, happy life. In all honesty, we're not taking it wheeling, so it's not a huge need for us. She's more interested in getting a soft top that's easier to take down, and the hinge mirrors for going door-less. At least she's cool with that.

2514G at Tie hack campground, Bighorn national Forest.

A very nice campground @ $17.00/night ($8.50 with senior pass). Potable water and composting toilets. Mule deer walking within 20 feet of the popup. Very dark at night and VERY quiet.

Our 2001 Rockwood

Recently became the owner of this pup and we'll be taking it to the campground for the first time this weekend. Been a tenter for nearly 50 years, many places in all types of weather so this is going to be a new experience for the both of us. Been going through all the systems and making a few repairs, here and there and now have everything working as it should. Only issue I have left to fix is two small leaks in the corners of one of the bunk areas.. the stitching has come undone and though I have tried to fix with seam sealer and silicone I still get some water in when it rains hard. I read about someone having the same issue who installed gutters to divert the water from the roof and am going to attempt to do likewise .. she's old, but solid and looks like a fun new way to spend a week..

The first night you sleep up off the ground, you're going to say, "Why the heck didn't I do this 50 years ago?!!"

The only gripe is the completely useless AC way underpowered. The first big upgrade will be a 15,000BTU AC. Other than that we love it. What’s the difference between out 2015 vs 2018?

So this past weekend we took her out for a trial run for 5 days .. Got some heavy rain on Friday night into Saturday and a couple of showers late Saturday night; but all in all the weather was pretty good and we had a great time camping in this old Rockwood. Still have a couple of minor issues to deal with, like extra storage and getting her perfectly leveled ( add-on camper levels aren't right ) but everything works right, the beds were very comfortable and there was plenty of room for the 3 of us to enjoy being inside while it rained watching movies and playing cards..

This is the day we brought it home in July.
Had it out for Labor Day- go figure I don't have any pics of where we parked it. It took 4low to get there though!

It's a 176SE
Behind the Wrangler it'll be able to get ANYWHERE I want to camp.

That screen room pic is someone elses- I do however have a screen room for mine. Flagstaff semi-screwed up our order and gave us the screen room to make up for it!
It is a Dometic screen room- should be available online fairly easily.
