New to the forum and want to say high. Long time tent camper but after 4 trips of 100+ temps last year we decided to move to a pop up with ac. Purchased a 2010 2514G in october and took 1 trip at the end of last season. Looking forward to many more and appreciate all of the info I have seen on the forum so far.
Not sleeping on the ground is a big plus with a trailers. Us too we have been camping with tents for years and it was a big improvement to step to a pop up. I have kept 2 of my tents and I still likes tents. They are so nice now compared to the old times when they were made of canvas and waterproofed with a wax products. I owned 2 pop up ( one was a Lionel and the other was a Flagstaff. With my trailers I have owned 11 of them and this one will be my last one a minilite 2011 Rockwood . If you have a chance give us a picture of your outfit.
to the forums. We know the tenting adventures with weather. Ours was rain not so much temperature. After almost 20 years with a tent we made a move to a pop-up. We found we went camping more often once we bought the pop-up. The weather situation didn't change much, still hasn't for that matter but it's easier to deal with.
Agreed about tenting. We tented for 20+ years and went through a succession of tents. No fun when the zippers fail. Especially when you think you're okay because you have two doors. And then the 2nd zipper fails. Both in the same weekend. Off to the store to buy a new tent. Then you find you hate it because the design just sucks and you get wet everytime it rains! From a small JC Penney tent that you had to crawl into to our final 12' x 12' Coleman with swinging doors. Similar to this one.....

Our last tent was an rei kingdom that had a fly that came about 2 inches off of the ground. Driest tent I ever owned. Great memories and times looking forward to the added comfort though and still have the tent for the times we still feel like roughing it.
"for the times we still feel like roughing it.". Thats so cute. I've slept on the hard ground with no shelter and only a jacket over me. And in tents. Just like everyone else. I hope the only roughing it I ever do in the future is to use the paper towel roll from the RV kitchen cuz i am out of toilet paper! Loved tents! Lovin RV more better!
