    Soooo, I told you all I have OCD, so of course I’ve already sold the pup and bought this;

    Getting dark here so that’s the best pic I could share but she’s here and the title is in the house. Went backwards in year (2008-2006) but gained the ability to stretch out more and travel further. The goal we set out to accomplish was being able to drive, pull into a slot at midnight and sleep a bit and hit the road early the next morning. That’ll be much easier this way.

    Okay, you've definitely got my attention. A really interesting trailer.

    Does that have a miniature door on one side?

    Is it a hybrid? Is that a bunk that comes out the back?

    Congrats,, you will love it, especially during inclement weather set-up and breakdown. Also in cold or hot weather with all that insulation

    I'd really love to see some inside pics, too!

    We always say we're getting another TT, and always come back to the pop-up for practical reasons. Mostly because we can get the cheap loops at Disney and the "tent sites" at state parks due to low hanging trees. We can back past them, then raise the roof. It's hard to find anything available, other than the two tent sites. We'd definitely have to take our planning up a notch.

    Congrats, looks like a Similiar setup like my Jayco X213....mine has the front bunks with side cargo door. Bottom bunk flips up to load bikes or cargo thru the small door and has a rear King bed slide out. We really love the layout of our trailer.

    That’s the hard bed slide in the back and I, for one, thought hybrid but the forumites claim it’s darkside all the way. And yes, that’s a door to the front bunks on the side, lol. I’m planning to probably just leave the bottom bunk in most of the time, more of a sitting spot but the underneath is all storage.

    I’m cleaning her up this weekend so I’ll get better pics of the inside, etc. It was getting dark so I didn’t even level it last night which is why the slide is still in.

    It’s the exact floor plan of your X213 and the Outback 210URS

    Haha yup I “downsized”. It’s funny cuz when I was snapping the pic I thought “you’re not supposed to include your tag info dummy” so I retook it with the fingers-blocking-the-tag technique. But I’m not sure why it’s taboo to start with. Yikes! That makes me a follower, dang it.

    You hide the tag so people can't use it to get info on you. Probably not a major risk, but there are some whackos in the world who will use it to cyber stalk you or to make the move to real life stalking.

    Thanks all. As for towing, it’s definitely not a pop up lol, but the truck did well considering I haven’t gotten the brake actuator installed, just used the ball basically. I stayed slow and on backroads so I can speak to sway etc. I plan to add the WD hitch w/antisway to be safe on the interstates. Here’s the inside pics cuz I said I’d share. Still pretty dirty so overlook that part

    The potty that makes the DW happy;

    And the part that mattered most to me;

    Only way I can consider a shower if it has the skylight cuz standard TT showers don’t consider those of us above 6’

    Lol, I sat on the potty in my pup for the shower. It made me think of the disable people's bath rooms. I did have a bit of room if I stood up but the water went over the top of the curtain! Im 6'6" , lol. Good deal!

    Okay, so this is turning into a borderline obsession, but can I see an inside pic of that small door? It has captured my interest so much that I now want this camper. [:O]

    Sure, but which small door? The one to the right of the entry door or the one I assume is a pantry next to the fridge?
    I just locked it up tonite after getting the main mattress out. Gonna see how big the gap is with the new one I just bought for the pup (that I wisely kept) tomorrow.

    One thing that also motivated us was storage options. I don’t think we can even fill what we have now.
