New pop-up owner

I have never joined a forum before and am looking forward to learning from experienced campers. I am the proud owner of a 2011 Jayco Sport 10 - just purchased in July. I love the smallness and simplicity of it. I have used it 3 weekends and so far the biggest hassle is learning to back it into the site. I'm sure I'll get the hang of it, though.

Congrats on the new-to-you popup!

Welcome to JOF.

2 tips on backing into a campsite: 1) A spotter that you can trust and will communicate clearly and 2) Practice, get out often.

The most important to the care and maintence of a PUP is proper take down procedure. If you're lucky you will pack down after 2 or 3 hours of bright sunshine but as you will find out there will be several times when a heavy morning dew or actual liquid sunshine will cause you to pack down with wet canvas. If there is any dampness at all you will need to open the ends when you get home and let things dry out completely. Ignore this advice and you will end up with meldew on the canvas and on/under the mattress.

We owned 2 PUPs before we moved up to TT's. We loved our PUPs and dragged them with family in tow all over the country from Disney to Yellowstone to Michigan and just about every state Park in Indiana. They are great for beginner campers and young families and you can tow them with a typical SUV or Van.

Enjoy and remember to dry out the ends.
