    Hi everybody.
    My wife and I are thinking of buying a small pop up and we like what the 860qs (Gaucho) offers. Only thing is I cannot find many to look at. Does anybody own one that can tell me how they like it, pros and cons.

    Single bed popups aren't a new concept - Starcraft used to offer the 1404 ...

    ... and Jayco the 1202 ...

    In both cases the entry door was located in the usual campsite side of the trailer vs rear entry on this 860QS. Do a search spelling the name correctly - Coachmen Clipper 860QS - and quite a few links come up. For what a new one would cost I think I'd instead consider a Coachmen Clipper 9.0 TD which also features a rear door entry and is fully equipped, even comes with A/C already installed, but folds down quite small.

    However, one thing to keep in mind when buying any unconventional floorplan like all of the above is the difficulty that may arise later when you want to sell it as most people will be looking for a conventional floorplan with beds at each end of the popup.
