We're a family of four just starting our search for a pop up. I grew up tent camping most of my life, we've also gone tent camping as a family a few times. My wife suggested we look into a pop up, she thinks it'll get us out of the house far more than the tent will. I agree. We live in Alvin, TX. It's about 20 minutes south of Houston and about an hour west of Galveston. I'm a youth and family minister full time and a USAF Reservist. My wife is the secretary at our church. We'll be using our 2011 Chevrolet Traverse to pull the camper most times, but I may use my 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee if its just me and one of the kids going out on a trip. We're looking to spend around $1000 on a camper, and we're not afraid to use some elbow grease. Storage is my biggest concern right now. I'd rather not have to redo our backyard gate, and take up most of my side yard. But I also don't want to pay for storage. Oh well, we'll cross that bridge when we get there. Thanks!
