    New (Old) Guy From Pittsburgh Area

    Hi, I'm new to your site but have been motorcycle camping for 10 years. I started with Burger King shaped box (car topper) on a HF trailer. Moved on the a more steamlined X-Cargo car topper on a Besco trailer. My wife and I did several trips to Asheville and the Smokies with it. I am now restoring an old Kompact Kamp that I picked up. It is the old style where the top flips out to the left (not to the right). It mostly needs lower canvas repair and the top sealed (cracks in the gel coat). It is also missing the cushions for the bed but I'll probably use a self inflating mattress.

    Wish me luck.
