    Best things, getting off the ground, simplicity of systems (no computers) furnace, hot water, big windows, ease of towing, place to get out of weather, able to use most of tent camping equipment , easier and faster than big tent camp set up.
    worst things, you have to be handy, there is always something that needs attention (our unit is a 2018) from broken button on sink support, to cracked plastic moldings, the awning bag coming apart. You need to be vigilant and catch things before they become a bigger project.
    Being retired hubby is having lots of fun making improvements and I enjoy personalizing the poppy.

    I’ve been coming to the Hayward area for over 40 years. In my younger years, I have taken many a bath in the Namakogon River.

    Same as a boat.
    Best day = day you buy it
    2nd best day = day you sell it.

    re storage = keep the things you get in and out of most often in the car - such as (most of your) clothes.

    storage is less of an issue of you stay several nights at one location, which is always more pleasant whether pupping or motelling

    A lot of people listing setting up and taking down in the con column. I know I’ve said it before but I enjoy that part of the pop up. It’s kinda like a ritual you have to get just right for it to work out. I think of it like one of those zen gardens with the rake. I find it relaxing in a way. Of course I very rarely have kids with me that might be a little different.

    We have an A-frame. The set-up and take-down are not cons.
