    Pre-cooling -- Does the method make a difference?

    I travel with a cooler, when I reach destination I turn on fridge and place a couple frozen gallon containers. It usually is good to go in a few hours. I do monitor the temp with a remote thermometer.

    Foam tiles under mattress is a bad practice?

    I also have foam camping pads under my mattress and it makes a world of difference when I’m sleeping on my side. I’ve used them since day one and have had no problems. I have a 2000 Rockwood Freedom 1940

    Super high wind Gizmos

    After several years of monkeying around with home made PUGS I purchased the SHW Gizmos. The material is thicker than the survival blankets and it will be great having the correct size. I like the idea of the paws to connect the cords bout I don’t think I have the clearance. So I am considering...

    Can my pop up handle a long trip?

    Last summer I went from NE Illinois to Yellowstone in my 2000 Rockwood Freedom with out a single problem. Later that Summer on a short trip I had a leaf spring bust! I switched out all the springs so that won’t happen again!

    March 2021 - What did you do for your camper?

    I just popped her up after winter hibernation! No moisture no rodents! However looks like it’s time to learn how to caulk since the front and back seams are feeling crumbly.

    Planning for 2021

    2 years ago I was Lucky enough to see Banff, Jasper and Yoho. Flew out there no camping. Last year I camped Yellowstone/Grand Tetons, bit of a drive but worth every mile! I’ve been to RMNP several times as well. This year I’m headed back to the Smokies that started my mountain desires. Kind...

    Missing Awning

It allows for windows to be open on that side when it’s raining, a place to sit in the rain or direct sun, a dry cooking area, a dry place to take off muddy boots etc. When my original Dometic frame failed (camper is a 2000) I went with a Shademaker and I have been very...
