My first camper was a Pop Up and Loved it, I had no bathroom /shower option at that time and no kids. they sleep a small army and the a/c will freeze you out. I always depended on campground showers etc. some were nice some were better off swimming and calling that your bath, The things that made me start to want a bigger non pop up unit was showing up at campground starts raining trying to pop them up fasten the tent around the bunks with out interior getting wet or time to leave its raining no choice but pop it down wet and store then gotta remember open it up to dry out to prevent mildew. they have came a long ways with them now days . no crank handle to raise and lower. all electric. showers, bath rooms etc. for the weekend camper not spending much time inside the camper they are perfect easy to pull. No blind spots in heavy traffic compared to pulling a 32 ft travel trailer. vehicles burn no more fuel pulling them. , compared to my truck depending roads, wind etc. I have gotten as little as 9 mpg with a 5.7 L gas engine, and as much as 16 mpg. to with the pop up small car truck, suv, even 4 cylinders will handle the pop up. They are less expensive so get it loaded out, big as possible. the more room the happier you will be. some come with a built in storage box in the front which can be acessed from out side or inside the camper this is excellent option. Good Luck.
