Many years ago we started out with a 2-man, $29.95 pup tent from Cdn. Tire. We have camped from Inuvik to the Gulf of Mexico and from Vancouver Island to Newfoundland. We've had soft tops, manual fold-out hard tops, crank ups, a homemade canvas top with a built in double bed (built by my father in 1955), a Unik, 3 Westfalias and half a dozen Trilliums. My daughter has our last one and I have purchased, sight unseen, a 1978 1300. I will pick it up in Ontario (Can.) later this month. It is all I need now. We just kept going back to the Trilliums. Like Westy owners we are a special breed. I can't explain it. It just is.
Don't make any hasty decisions. At least give it one season. Try to get to a rally
and then make up your mind. You will get your money back if you don't like the experience.
Welcome aboard and keep us posted. Thanks. D
