Hey lugoismad, I finally got to look at your camper on something other than my cell phone. It looks to be in really nice shape! Nice negotiating. =D>
What is that little door up front on the street side of the camper? Is that an emergency exit for the bunks?

If your not pooping in the woods your not camping.


If you aren't hiking the applachian trail with nothing but a bottle of water, a compass and old sock to cover your dingdong, then its not real camping.

I think so. Its weird, isn't it? I guess its an emergency exit. Its just like a half size door. I'm going to have to put a latch on it on the outside. My 5 year olds like to go exploring. Last year we went to a popup camper rally at Hocking Hills state park. I'm not going to lie, I imbibed a bit too much around the camp fire. Woke up out of a whiskey stupor at 4am to one of my girls making a break for it out the camper door in below freezing weather, no shoes on, nothing. She was just like "I wanted to explore!". We put a locking latch on the door after that.

Yeah, I feel like I stole the damn thing.

Nice Snag!

We bought a weekend lake place 5 years ago and sold our 4 year old 21' ultralight to some friends for $8.5K. I could have easily sold it for $11K but DW insisted. 3 months later our "Friends" got $12K for it as a trade in on a new 5th wheel. :evil:

That's really funny. It's the kind of thing I would do so I just can't go to places like that. The family of six story is good too. I just sold my camper, very small at 6'x8' when closed and the first guy to come look at it was about 6'2" and in the 225# range. He wanted it for his brother and himself to partridge hunting. As soon as he got out of his car I knew it was a no sale. A pop up is a pain to sell because you need to set it up and take it down every time someone wants to look at it.

Good luck with both and good thing you came home with the propane.

Awesome camper and even better deal. I've started looking for a slide in truck camper since I bought the new truck. I would like to be able to take the boat with me also. I've been camping out of a 1999 Astro van for several years. It would be a nice upgrade to have an actual camper.

Does a hotel room facing the woods count?

This is what my fiance thinks about camping ... see picture.

Long gone are the days when camping to me was leaving no trace of your stay, taking the path less traveled by, and hauling no tents - but would make a lean-to of pine boughs.

As I age, and age, and age and....

the idea of sleeping ON the ground makes about as much sense as sleeping........ .....UNDER the ground! Ha Ha richg99

Nice one Rich!

I went from sleeping under the stars on a sleeping bag to sleeping in a tent on the ground. Then went to cots with cushions in the tent. Then to get my wife to go we bought a pop up. Next came the travel trailer with bathroom, kitchen, A/C, and television. Now we have a class C motorhome with 3 televisions including the one outside. :LOL2: I guess it's still camping even if it sometimes happens on concrete with full hook ups including cable. :lol:

At least fishing still feels right.
