RE: Pop ups

People who own pop ups have ditched this forum years ago. Pop Up Explorer and Pop Up portal are popular. I personally go to the Forest River Pop Up forum.

RE: Tent Trailer Set Up Question

Have you considered something such as the Winnebago Travato? DW and I have discussed what we would consider when we feel we need to downsize. Just yesterday, I got to see a fellow camper's Travato and it really looks quite nice with a full wet bath in the rear, two twin beds that can convert into a king, nice galley and creative use of tables for use with the two captains' chairs. If I went with that, I'd have one of the nice popup style screen rooms to use (along with the awning on the camper. It's small enough to drive around like a pickup truck and no hitch to worry about. We had tent campers when we started out and I wouldn't want to go back to dealing with bunkends and rain and having to dry them out. Before that, I agree with looking at a smaller travel trailer. Or, look at some of the class B rigs. Good luck in your search, and stay healthy! That Van only has a interior height of 6'3". That's not tall enough for many to stand up comfortably especially with AC, antenna's and such mounted into the roof. My Pop Up is pretty easy to handle. A lot easier than handling the 80 lbs Weight Distributing hitch I needed for my previous 29' bunkhouse TT.

RE: Tent Trailer Set Up Question

Decades ago we owned a tent trailer and greatly enjoyed using it. Eventually we moved on and finally got a Class C Bigfoot. Lately my wife and I have been thinking about selling the C and returning to a tent trailer. However, we are both approaching 80 and are concerned if the tasking of pulling out the beds and hooking up their supports is still as difficult as we remember. If it is then we are unlikely to go that route. Have they found a new, EASY way to do this? If so which make and model would have the new system? Looking for a high sided model with wet bath. Thanks for any info. No different today except maybe a powered roofs, stab jacks powered by a drill, and powered tongue jack on only the biggest. IMO, pulling out and pushing in beds in no easier and maybe harder with bigger beds. If you're 80 and in good enough health to be camping, maybe a smaller travel trailer like an R-Pod would help you enjoy it even more. The R-Pod campers have great floorplans and I would look at one my myself.
