I went to the darkside after 2 pop ups but found they were more work and expense, and I didn't enjoy camping as much. The 2008 Jayco Jay Flight 19BH I had was a nice compromise but was to claustrophobic with it's corner double bed with a single bed and dresser above. Never slept good in that camper. The 2012 Jayco Jay Flight 26BH was the perfect TT for me. It essentially was the 19BH with an additional front queen bedroom. However caulking was always opening up which cost a lot in re-caulking at the dealer. It could cost anywhere from $600 - $1000 each year including a leaktech test. I had some other issues as Jaycos jagged textured aluminum siding is crap and doesn't last. Besides, towing was very expensive as well as plates and insurance. For the few trips we went, it was insane paying almost $1500 - $2500 per year on that camper in preventative maintenance, repairs, plates and insurance. Also with the 26BH, leveling at rustic and uneven state park campsites was timely and irritating. It took sometimes 30 minutes or more to get the rig leveled. On a concrete pad and leveled sites, not an issue but those were very rare. I had a Blue Ox Sway Pro anti-sway system since the trailer was long and very tall being a standard weight stick and tin build. My driveway and street are very narrow requiring to almost jack knife to get the camper in, so I had to jack up the trailer tongue and take off the spring bars while still in the street before I could back up. If I didn't, I risked damaging the hitch as what had happened with my previous Reese High Performance Dual Cam System. With the Reese, the bar caught on the head from the very sharp turn and boke the hitch head apart. Dealer was awesome, came to my home to repair and adjust, and talked to Reese. Even though Reese says you don't have to take the bars off to back up, they said in situations like mine, they have to come off or damage will occur. Wish they stated that in the brochure and manual. Then I had to carry the heavy bars and hitch head to my shed in the middle of the yard. That's about 80 lbs. The travel Trailer was just a lot of work and not much fun. Maybe if I had a wide road and large driveway, and close storage for the hitch, it would be different, but I didn't. I always felt like I was in an isolated cottage and not really camping in the travel trailer although I had every creature comfort available. The Pop Up I bought is very large, and is equal to the travel trailer is square footage which includes a King bed instead of the 26BH's double bed in the corner. Both have Queen beds as well. The 26BH also had a single bed above the double bed. The Pop Up doesn't require a weight distribution hitch or anti-sway. Pulls like a tiny cargo trailer and can be forgot very easily if I didn't see it in my mirrors. I get very good gas mileage towing it of around 17 - 18 mpg. My truck empty gets around 22 mpg thanks to transmission and aluminum body. Better than any of my midsize V6 SUVs! Towing the 26BH was between 10 - 11 mpg. I love being able to put it about anywhere without issue as it's very small closed up at 19'2" long, bumper to hitch and only about 7' wide. The 26BH was 29' bumper to hitch and 8' wide. Opened it's huge with the largest slideout offered by Forest River in a Pop Up. I love being able to open it all up and feel like I'm in a screen house again. It's nice letting some of the outside, inside the trailer with light, scents, nature sounds, and seeing 360 degrees all the way outside the camper. Camping is much more enjoyable again and I feel connected to the outside again. The plus side now is that I can move where ever I like and not worry about how much property I need to store the Travel Trailer or if the property allows for me to even tow the travel trailer to a storage spot. The Pop Up can fit in almost any garage so storage is no longer a concern. I hate offsite storage and would never go that route. On top of it, my plates and insurance are 1/3 the cost from a 2012 travel trailer to a new 2020 Pop Up. While it's new and hasn't needed re-caulking, there's much less to need it. I'm really happy to get back to camping in a pop up and not have many of the issues that kept me from wanting to go camping that I had with the travel trailer, as in all the work it required. Obviously this is my story so everyone has their own issues and experiences.
