We bought this cherry 1985 Skamper 159-C popup camper. It may be old but it's in excellent condition. We bought it with another family and can't wait to go this weekend! It's got a sink, stove, furnace, and fridge! The previous owners used an electric plug in heater that we'll use instead of the propane, and we're going to remove the propain furnace and install a window ac unit! (from a house) Granted we plan on using mostly Electric camp sites at state parks. And yes, i'm putting in a sub panel with breakers and properly sized romex. It's got two King beds and a Queen!!!

Nice.
Don't use Romex though... Solid wire can break and crack do the the vibration of being pulled, potentially causing a short. Use a multi-strand wire.
