One problem with popups that have been popping up lately

Forest service closing campgrounds to popup trailers (and tents); allowing only hardside trailers.
Just had to rearrange next week's trip from Wapiti campground to about four miles down the road to Rex Hale. Ok site, but not as heavily treed as Wapiti.

Probably the way some pop up owners handle waste water. Some will ruin it for all...

WHAT? I have seen full size trailers, fifth wheelers and even a motorhome one time flushing gray water out of the tanks onto the ground!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't believe it makes a difference if a person is in a popup or a half million dollar motorhome.

NO, that is not the reason. The reason is it is not too hard for a bear to tear through the soft sides of a popup or a tent vs. a somewhat hard side on other trailers.

Maybe they should just close the campground to bears instead.

One out of a population of about 150?

Love the area too.

Been a lot of Grizzlies relocated this year along both the northern and southern branches of the Shoshone River. Now that winter is coming, Grizzles and blacks, have come down to that area for berries and anything else they can find, to fatten up for a long winter.

Been no problems, yet, and they don't want one; thus closing to tents and popups.

I don't have one, but curious if the ban includes hybrids?

Hybrids have the unique ability to "turtle ", so they can be like any other TT.
As long as you sleep on the dinette and sofa, you are a hard sided TT.

What he said; however, if you have to pull out a bed you will be asked to leave. Or at least that is what a friend was told who has a hybrid. He had to move out cause he opened up the ends due to the number of people he had.

yep, you do that and you're no longer "turtled" and you are soft-sided again.
you lose your TT pass!

didn't your friend realize that doing that would get him kicked out?
