RE: Anyone else camp in an A-frame?

I came from a 29' Travel Trailer, a Jayco Jay Flight 26BH so I needed room. The Aliners were just to small and crowded with their A frame roof. Europe has hard sided, flat roof campers but not here in the USA. I went with a 14' box pop up so I had the beds for my family. I missed camping in a Pop Up when I had the Jayco Jay Flight. Felt I may as well stay home or do day trips as it wasn't like camping but staying in a hotel or cottage. Now I get to hear the wildlife at night and can sleep under the stars with all the windows open. Back to my glorified luxury tent with all the amenities!

RE: Post your tow vehicle pics here

Finally got the better truck for towing, a 10 speed transmission, Max Tow Package, and the 3.5L Ecoboost. My old truck and trailer. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49684467468_1b0ff50eb1_b.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49597714793_5c88380f86_b.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49685375886_0f908b38dd_b.jpg

RE: Is this forum dead, wow

Yeh, I only visit here rarely anymore. Just had an awesome time in my new Pop Up.

RE: Hard Sided Pop Up Questions

We had two Trailmanors. I miss it. They were ideal for towing with a small SUV. We had the comfort of our Nissan Pathfinder and the use of a 1) 2001 2720 and then 2) 2001 3326. Truly comfortable, easy setup, low maintenance and did I mention easy towing? :) Great kitchen with full stovetop/oven, microwave and a huge kitchen sink. In 2720 we had a cabinet A/C which was great. We moved to a standard TT which we love but it's not the same. Only problem with the Trailmanor is the price. However, there are many used units at very good prices. Maybe in the future. Both of the Trailmanor campers looked significantly larger inside than your current funfinder but with a lot less storage space. My main concern with a Trailmanor is they look fragile and flimsy but I know owners love them as I haven't read to many complaints. A coworker had a Hi-Lo which Trailmanor took over. He loved his Hi-Lo and had nothing but good things to say about it.

RE: Hard Sided Pop Up Questions

The A-Frame Hard side pop ups are to small to be comfortable for me, even when alone. I honestly would rather camp in my 9' X 9' Eureka Tent. I downsized from a 29' bunkhouse TT to a 14' box (opened 25' living area) soft size pop up. I have tons of room, a bathroom with shower and toilet, and a slide out. Love how big it is and how open. What I hate is the lack of storage compared to my 29' TT BH but even a midsize or small TT would be lacking compared to all the storage I had. I tried to like the A frame pop ups but their lack of headroom, storage, living space just wasn't comfortable for me. You need to compile a list of your wants and needs and go spend some time in one, and go through the motions if as you were actually camping in it, and see if it would work for you. Good luck

RE: Photo Thread - Post Your PUP Pics Here

Not sure if I have ever seen a slide out on a pop up camper. AWESOME! Thanks
