The Camping Basics Information Page

Welcome To The ‘Camping Basics’ Page.

A few of us thought it would be great to gather helpful information in one location for new campers.  We’ve also included information for the experienced camper.  So, let’s get started.  Whether you’re a novice and new to camping or an old hand, you’ll probably be spending time in some shelter like a tent or camper you brought along.

As a tenter that are a few things you need to take into account in your purchase and we can help you make that decision in buying a tent.

Other common gear that you will need and we can help you better understand is a sleeping bag.

So maybe you’re thinking of getting off the ground and into a pop-up or hybrid, are you? Pop-ups, (commonly called PUPs) and Hybrids (travel trailers with expandable canvas beds) are available with many features, floor plans, designs, and material. Here’s what you need to know when buying new or used. One of the first and most important things is understanding what you can tow.  This is the place to understand your vehicles towing capacity.

Once you’ve found your dream camper.  Now you’re going to pick it up.  Is your tow vehicle ready?  Do you have the proper equipment?  You better take a minute to understand the wiring.

Below is a list of many threads that can help you have a better camping experience.
