    Greetings!!! I came across this site in my search for the manual of my recently acquired 2005 StarCraft Centennial 3604 Pup [PU] [PUT]. Found it… Thank you PopUpPortal and PopUpSteve!!!

    We have been searching for our Pup for many months, I lost track of how many we looked at and walked away from. So, last Sunday one “ popped ” up on craigslist that was just what we were looking for. We closed the deal on Wednesday and took the family camping this past weekend! For almost 3 years we have been tent camping (My DW, 2 kids and 2 doggies) we go about 7 times a year during the winter months (Florida). And while I do not have a problem with tent camping I have to say the accommodations were a welcome change!!! And it is so much easier to pack!

    We already have sites reserved and Ft. Desoto and Wekiva Springs for this summer!!!

    Welcome from Northern IL. Sounds like a great find. The fact that you could go camping immediately makes it even better!

    Hello, Burningbear, welcome from Central Florida. A lot of great folks from this area. You just missed the spring rally. Good times. Hope to see you by the campfire sometime. :)

    Thanks everyone!

    We will be there the week after the 4th of July. Really looking forward to this trip as we have never camped there and hear it is a great place . Hoping to pull in a few nice sized fish while we are there also. FISH ON!!!

    What is the Spring Rally and is it kid friendly?

    Oh man, you will love it there. So much to do, The fort is really cool and fishing piers. And also you can go fishing on the skyway bridge as well. We love it there and so far its the only place we camp. You will get addicted to camping there. There are raccoon's but as long as you do not keep any food or trash outside you will be fine. There are two trash cans at the end of every camping spot so its easy to keep the trash out of your site.
