Brand New Owner of a 1998 Jayco Pop Up
I am a brand new owner of a 1998 Jayco Heritage Pop Up Camper! I am quite excited and hope that we really did get a good deal on this!
We have had a few mishaps in the few days that we have owned the camper. I pulled it from Stone Mountain, GA to Birmingham with my Jeep Wrangler and besides the fact that I could not hook up the lights because we had the wrong plug on the Jeep, it did fine. When I woke up in the morning to look at my new toy, we noticed that one of the tires was shredding! Made it home just in time, I guess!
Then we go to open the camper and apparently the kind man we bought it from forgot to remove the crank before I pulled off on my journey home. So, I could not open my camper but ordered a new crank on eBay, it should be here this week.
Today I woke up unable to wait for the crank and have asked my hubby to go to the hardware store to try to find something that will crank it up (yes, I have no patience!).
We looked for weeks at different pop ups and this one had a lot of bells and whistles the others did not have. Before I bought it I made sure those bells and whistles were working. Regardless, in the end I paid $2500 for the unit. Let's hope I got a good deal! If not, I will be sure to hear about it for the next decade!
There are some projects I want to do before it's maiden camping trip. I want to replace the curtains, get new mattresses and get a porta-potti tent as this one does not have a toilet (it's okay, I wouldn't have let anyone use it if there was one!).
Does anyone have any suggestions or pics of curtains that they made and hung in their popups?
Also, how big can I go on the mattress (height) or should I go with airbeds?
thanks for stopping by!
