That looks SUPER COOL!!! Would they be willing to sell you an extra tent canvas? I'm wary about fold out tents and them being available in the future. I know of some that have had issues with the Kangaroo type campers and getting replacements. Of course, you're rather handy and would probably be able to make a new one if needed.....just thinking of the long term investment. Of course, I'm the guy that purchases 4 pairs of the same shoe when I like them for when they wear out.......Yep, I'm weird. 


Congrats!!!! I'm super jealous of being able to get out so often and having a family willing to camp!!! Very AWESOME!!! Bringing the kids up right!!! Love it!!!!!!

Thanks!  I'm not sure about the canvas, though they've been around for 60 years, so hopefully that won't change.  I was very impressed with the new ownership (the CEO has worked with some really cool products and seems to be all in on Outfitter).


I'm very lucky to have a wife that loves camping.  She grew up in a pop-up camper in New England and my 18mo son is always asking for "outside" so he's loving camping and outdoors.  It helps living in Colorado with Pikes Peak out my front window and Garden of the Gods half a mile from the house!  Fingers crossed #2 feels the same way about the outdoors.

Congratulation to your Outfitter! They are well built campers. Friends of us owned a Apex 8 here in Germany. 


We wish you the very best and tons of great family trips and camping weekends!
