Don't be silly. That's where a lot of us started. Had my Rockwood Freedom pup for 5 years. The pup is definitely a step up from tent camping. Happy Camping!!

Enjoyed a PUP for years. No bathroom or a/c. On our second TT now. Enjoy what you have.

Huh?? no rocket ship here................... Don't feel small just have fun......... like anywhere yes some have their nose in the air & hate it when a substandard camper is in the next site over, but the majority are out to get away and have fun..........

Always gets my goat a little when a comment is made about an "entry level camper" . There is no such thing in my book.

Look at the brite side. You will be in your site and having fun while the rockets are still trying to maneuver into their spot. I am sure almost everyone here started small and worked up. Just have fun

We all start small-----------------

Welcome to camping, we all start small. I am on my fourth camper. My first camper was a Rockwood Pop Up and loved it. I can even remember
camping in Maine in late October. The moisture on the inside of the canvas
was frozen when we woke up in the morning. But it was fun!!

Lots of good memories with all of our campers, some of the best were in our pop-up when my son was little. Just enjoy what you have and make memories.

I'll trade you miles per gallon anytime. Getting 7

In this case, size does not matter. But having fun is everything. Welcome!

Don't worry - in a few years, you'll get a case of "two-foot-itis" and move up to something larger. I went from a pop up to a hybrid to a TT. Who knows, might be a 5vr in my future some day.

X2!!!

And the nice thing about "small" is they are simple. No hydraulics or electrical valves & switches to go wrong. We think about buying a fiver in the future but this Coachmen is very simple and will be easy to work on so I'm really enjoying that aspect! is the key!!!

Oh yea....a heck of a lot less money to buy and upkeep!
