I have found in the RV community the term boondocking actually means different things to different people. For most if not all, the basic definition is... Camping while fully self contained. No outside water, sewer, power, or fuel is available for the period of your stay. You have to haul it all in, and the waste out. But to others, and its no small number of folks, there is an added element that I just can't see a pop up working well for, and that is where the location is not in a campground, or wilderness area of any sort, but rather on pavement. I.E. a Walmart Parking lot, curbside, or just getting a few zzzzs at a rest stop so you can keep on driving safely. Yet, I know that pop ups would give me the willies in a Walmart parking lot for example, but not too long ago, I came across some folks that were obviously staying in their pop up, curb side on a fairly empty hunk of road behind a truck stop. Roof popped up and bunk ends fully out and secured. This has always been my biggest hesitation to a pop up vs. a travel trailer. Although an Aliner I would at least feel more secure. Any other "pop up, hard sided" campers out there anyone care to share?
