Smile Saying Hello from Illinois, we are glad to be here!

Just dropping in to say hello to you all! We are new owners of a great condition 1996 Eagle 10. We have been tenting for a few years now and have decided to give pop up camping a try. When we purchased our new but used pop up on the 1st we set it up and slept in it the same night we got it home. We had a great nights sleep right in opur own driveway. Realy was quite nice. I will be doing some weather stipping replacement over the next couple of weeks to make sure everything stays as dry as it can.
Thanks for all of you time!

Hi welcome to the Forum,we are also new members I know you will love camping in your new popup we did. When my wife & I started camping years ago, we also started in a tent and we bought a popup it was like Night and day getting off the ground when sleeping was the best part, it was so much nicer when it rained, and it seemed like it rained all the time, so enjoy the new camper.

Thank you all for the warm welcome! We really enjoy our "NEW" 1996 Jayco. Even though we have only camped in the driveway, we are going to be very happy. Looking forward to the real outdoors and adventures to follow. Might see you around, you never know. Again, Thank You all.

Welcome Neighbor.. We are just in Plano, and we have done our fair share of driveway camping. When the kids we little we would camp at their Grandma's house in the a different driveway and we would call it Gramcracker Campground..LOL Kids loved it
