Talk about anything that floats your boat (no pun intended). This is general talk about anything not related to boating/fishing.

And came home with this. Oh, and 60lbs of propane.

Looks good in my backyard.

Listing price was $10k.

Saleslady dropped to $6999 immediately because she said it had been sitting a while and they wanted to get rid of it.

I told her my hard limit was $5k and that was it. She said she'd have to go talk to her boss. She came back and said he's not in, but screw it, lets do it for $5k.

$5460 with taxes and title.

Had to spend another $300 on a weight distributing hitch, and then I ordered a power cord (didn't come with a shore power cord) and a sewer hose (didn't have one of those either) and I got a nice set of wheel covers to protect from UV light.

The tires on it were shot, and we had one blow out on the way home. So I took the other 3 and swapped them onto my popup, as I had 4 total tires for the popup with 2 spares, I'd bought them from a guy on craigslist last year.

Hoping to get at least $2000 for our popup. I had one family come and look at it already, but they show up and are like "well...its pretty small and we have six kids."

Looks nice! I'm actually posting this from my Class C camper at a state park in Maryland. We have a 60 pound propane tank as well. I don't think that thing will ever run out. :LOL2:

Also in case you didn't know, you can store your sewer hose (stinky slinky ) in the square bumper.
Have fun!!

This has 2 30's. Should be enough to last us 2 years at the rate we make trips.

About 50 years ago, we bought a 16 ft. hard sided camper. Loved it.

Made some improvements (pressure water; etc.) Bought it for $2000.00. Sold it four years later for $2000.00.

If the kids hadn't joined soccer/basketball/football teams, we would have kept it and used it for many more years. Have fun! richg99

Ha Ha...I'd have to get a new wife, and that would be way too expensive at this point!

Yeah, I bought my popup for $2000. Fixed some rot in it, flipped the axle and put on better wheels and tires. I have someone coming to look at it for $2100.

Does a hotel room facing the woods count?

We just left a state park site with only electric hook up. I thought my wife was going to suggest we turn around and go home.
There were actual trees and bugs and dirt.

The only way to get her to go camping was to buy a camper. :D
