Clicking the pics isn't hard work, but at times, can be somewhat disappointing.

Over the years we have most types of camping equipment....from a open air on cot, old mining cabins, tent, teardrop, pop up, campers, various bumper pulls. We haven't tried a Fifth wheel or a motor home. Each has its advantages and disadvantages. Most of them were purchased used as fixer uppers. I pulled my first travel trailer 50 yrs ago and have made every mistake known to man but I survived them. I have stories about each one.

Yeah, discussing the attributes of various RVs is as endless as there are different kinds of people in the world. I've owned more than my share of RVs, but I've never owned a pop-up travel trailer, although I've slept in one for a few days, and I've never owned a class "A" figuring it would be too limiting as to the places I could go. And to make it more complicated, as our lives and situations change, so do our needs for various RVs. I guess that's why they make so many different kinds.

Our pop-up camper had two advantages over our previous tent camping: real beds and a furnace. We truly appreciated that second one when traveling through the mountains in June.

Yes I believe that pop up trailers have a useful place in the world of RVs. But to me they were too time consuming to set up and take apart, and also for me, any trailer that has its wheels too close to the tow vehicle further taxes my extremely limited ability to back the thing up.... Motorcycle trailers being the worst.

Ours went up so easily our ten-year old daughter and I could do it alone in just a few minutes. It was also light weight enough I could unhitch it and roll it into the garage if I didn't feel like backing it up using the car.

The only pop-up trailer I've ever used was when I lived in Miami and was working as a civilian for Homestead Air Force Base, and I was able to rent a pop-up trailer from the base MWR for the princely sum of five dollars a day. And that particular one was a bit on the heavy side, and had some of the tiniest tires I had ever seen on a trailer. But that was a long time ago and MWR was not known for renting out high-class equipment. I rented a canoe from them, and it almost sank before I could paddle it back to shore. So maybe my opinion of pop-up trailers was more due to MWR than the trailer itself.
