    Hi everyone! I heard about this site through youtube and I think it's exactly what we need! We are a Canadian family of 5, though our oldest is on her own. We just purchased a 1999 Starcraft Venture pop up trailer after tent camping for 14 years. It has needed some maintenance done to it...weather proofing, mold issues ect and we imagine we will need to have the canvas replaced for next summer or so. We hope to take it out for the first time to a nearby provincial park for a short 2-night test in a couple of weeks.
    We have started to modify it to better fit our personal wants and needs and are constantly on the look out for tips, hacks, design and organization ideas.
    Thanks so much for having us!
    Here's our new-old member of the family before we brought her home.

    Rallies are just like minded campers getting together for a weekend of fun.. some stay close and meet up during the off season, others just make it when they can..

    Great way to learn different things, meet others and make friends who at the end of day will help you out with almost anything if they are able..
