so, ya'll know when we go back in 2010 we will be camping at Ft Wilderness. We have 2 tents, but both would have my Dh crawling in and out of them and that won't work. So I did some research and found this wonderful tent that has a sleeve that fits over the rear of the mini van and allows you to either sleep in the back of the van and use the tent for camp storage or extra sleeping space...or vice versa lol. The first sets we found were 3 to 4 hundred dollars. Ok, this is gonna cost more than I thought lol. But I kept searching. and kept searching...this was becomming personal lol. We found one at the Bass pro shop for $250! woohooo! that was much better. But...I kept searching. Out of complete frustration I did a search on Amazon.com...and there it was. Same Tent for $199! I book marked the page and said a little prayer. 3 months went by...the price was steadily dropping. ohpleaseohpleaseohplease became mymantra when our $100 rebate check from whirlpool came in....I just needed a couple of more paydays to get that last bit saved up...please don't sell out.... Th original number of tentes was20 byt his time they were down to 5. In the meantime I made enough points on mypoints.com to get a $50 gift certificate for Amazon.com. I panicked lol...No way is my luck that good! The tents got down to 3....and the price dropped from $199 to $118 and some change ....ohpleaseohpleaseohplease...Yesterday the certficate came in! I didn't realize I was holding my breath until I got the email confimation that my order was being shiiped lol...Whoossssh!!!! The price had dropped 2 more dollars and it became eligable for the FREE SHIPPING!!!! I used the rebate moeny and the gift card....That tent is ours for FREE!!! so yeah.... I am really happy about my siler linning LOLOLOL

Wow! That rainbow certainly had a silver lining! :lol:

I remember those tents from the 70s when VW buses were so popular! :)

Let us know how it works when you get it. You realize you have to practice with it, don't you? ;)
