Absolutely you can! While I haven't camped without my DH, I have many times driven to where our PUP is stored, hitched up, pulled it home, backed it in the driveway, and set it up. By far the hardest part for me is backing it in, just need more practice. I'm healthy-ish and 40-ish and I can do all this fine by myself. When we're setting up camp, we spend about half our time setting up the actual camper and the half setting up all our stuff. Get the grill out, put the coffee pot and icemaker on the counter, make the beds, put out the patio mat, etc. I would recommend getting a used PUP in solid, water-tight condition and camping in it a bit before you remodel. When we bought our first PUP, we had never camped as a family. So we made our best guess about which PUP would work for us. We were wrong! Sold the first one after a few years and got a bigger one, which works much better for us. But no harm done because the first one was very inexpensive and we were able to sell it easily and trade up. Glad we did it that way!
