We survived! My DH and I had decided to purchase our first ever ntu pop up a few weeks ago. When we finally found the one for use we jumped (a little faster than we should have) at it. We brought it home on Tuesday and were at the campground by Saturday. The kids were all excited and even helped sweep it out. We knew the first time out wouldn't run smoothly but surprisingly didn't have too many hiccups! The major one being getting used to the kids shaking the camper whenever they moved. (It takes quite a while for our middle child to fall asleep and is a restless sleeper all night.) We were able to try out the add-a-room and discovered we can't use it until the issues with the awning are resolved. After spending the weekend relaxing with the kids we came home and now have a clearer picture of the mods that we "need" to make! Now, where can we find some extra money for those mods???
