Newbie in CA - Checkin In!

Evening All!

My husband and I just bought our first pop-up, a 92 Coleman Destiny Royale. Got it for a heck of a decent price (I hope!!) and needs minimal work. We've used this one a few times (a friend owned it) and love the lay-out but know we will need some advice on future repairs, tips, etc. Can't wait to dig in and pick your brains!

We are in Northern California and can't wait to take her to Tahoe! She's been to Fort Bragg with us already and did great behind my 02 GMC Envoy.

Any initial advice is always welcome and I'd love to know if there is anything in particular to watch out for. Thanks all!



Ro

How old are the tires?

Tires for that shouldn't be too expensive and I'd suggest new ones if they are pretty old, especially if they are the originals.

We started out with a pop-up. Lots of room in them.

The tires are less than a year old. That was a big selling point for.me!
