Thanks for the link Bob. Sallie and I had a used tent trailer in the mid 60's. I think it was from a kit that the guy we bought it from had assembled. With a lot of practice we could set it up in just under a half hour.

2011 Eagle 330RLTS with just about every option.
Dodge SRW 1 ton Cummins powered.

I was born with nothing and I still have most of it left.

A pop-up in the drive-way was sleeping quarters when visiting my wife's grandparents for many summers.

Its kinda funny in those 70's Jayco ads/brochures how a lot of the people looked "not thrilled" or as if the pic was taken too early in the AM. Nice read for a rainy day, thanks!
