Well, I've been camping my whole life. Growing up, we had a travel trailer and traveled the whole U.S. When I got married, we bought a popup and had the popup for 13 years. We just sold our 2nd popup we had (had this one for 11 years). And bought a new Travel trailer. LOVE IT. Most of the stuff is still the same, just have to learn how to use the grey/black tanks, etc.
