20 yr RV veterans here , made the usual progression from popups to a hybrid to travel trailers, camped a LOT, traveled far and wide many 10s of thousands of miles, mostly in the . However, now that our boys are adults and have their own lives camping for my wife & I is more infrequent, more local, but we'd still like to get out a few times each season, particularly when friends are also camping. We're now traveling more internationally so our travel trailer was increasingly being used less & less but still taking up a significant portion of the driveway yet continuing to depreciate month by month so we decided it was time to sell and return to our roots - popup camping, with many of the conveniences of The Darkside but a quantum leap up from tent camping. We're looking forward to the simplicity - no waste tanks, a much simpler hitching process, far better fuel mileage when towing, much easier leveling, far less "stuff" to drag along with us, far less capital investment, no need to insure, cheaper winter storage, the list goes on. Now the mystery is why we waited so long!
