    Heeere's Jonny! I'm back, but part time

    I'm back, but WE are not. We left the pop-up world when we bought our Casita and sold the Jayco. https://www.popupportal.com/threads/the-dark-side-going-going-go.122284/ The Casita continues to serve US well and WE are keeping it when WE travel, but...... For solo trips the egg is too big and...

    Electric brake breakaway cable vs. 7 pin connecting sequence

    All my prior trailers with brakes have been hydraulic 'surge' type. We've just purchased our first trailer with electric solenoid brakes. I'm concerned about how to 'test' the electric breakaway cable and switch. I see that some simply pull the cable and pin to confirm the brakes activate at...

    Stretch Wrap as barrier to infestation?

I've also seen what ants can do (as bad, if not worse) on our first camper (Time-Out, 30 ish years ago). We used snap-traps and ant bait last winter inside our prior Starcraft camper, but it had no...

    My CL Deal of the Milennia!

    We've been using the 8 foot box Starcraft Meteorite for about a year. We've found that we still enjoy camping, setting up in a region and doing day trips from that temporary base. We've also identified some things that the 8 footer doesn't do as well as we'd like, so the search has been on. We...

    A camper for "Tiny House" owners

    This was my camper for my solo trips before she saw the pictures and decided she wanted to come along. There's no way this is suited for two, it barely fit me for the two+ week trip through Labrador and Newfoundland. Needless to say this one was sold to purchase the big (8 foot box) what is now...

    Graduation from driveway to campground

    After multiple set-up and fold-down dry-runs, a couple of patch / reinforcements added to thin canvas, some electrical, plumbing, and lift cable repairs, several nights of sleeping in the driveway, a solo one night "beta-test" where I towed a few hours, set-up in a field, spend the day and night...
