Hello from NE PA

Hey y'all, just wanted to introduce myself. Semi new to trailer camping. Growing up my parents had an old Argosy trailer then after they split my mom got a pop up. I loved that thing and always wanted one. Now that I've got a family of my own I finally got one. Found a '79 Starcraft Starmaster 7 on Craigslist and picked it up. Got it for $550, it needs some work but for the most part it's ready to hit the road. Replaced a cable already. The rear bed acts like its going to fall out when extended and I need to patch the roof where the front door side post attaches.

When I was a kid, we had a crappy Apache pop up - only the 'rich' people had Starcrafts!

Good luck with your new camper.

Don't forget to replace the tires if they are more than 5 or so years old and check the bearings and hubs.
