Thank all of you for your comments and feedback. We took three long trips with new TT this year, loved every minute and enjoy camping even more now than with the PUP, which we personally found to be more work for less benefit. TBH, the TT is basically like towing a mobile recreational residence, while the PUP was a really nice tent with water and electric. As I said, towing is the main drawback, but we never had a problem driving slow and steady. Parking is the side drawback. While our PUP conveniently fit in our garage protected and secure all winter, our TT will be outside. It has been cleaned, winterized and will sit for over six months. End of year thoughts: -For those considering a PUP to TT upgrade, you won’t regret it. We don’t. We can’t wait for spring and our first trip. Camping is now an even better experience for us. -For those with a minivan, you will be just fine if you stay within your weight limits, load properly and drive slowly. -Size matters. We have a small TT and love it, it works just fine, but we already talk about our next TV and TT combo. We want more space - floor space, cabinet space, storage space, every space. We see a 26-32 footer in our future so we can invite our kids and their families to join us as we start to think about retirement. -Full hookups are nice for two reasons: a) less worry about filling up tanks too fast (showering really fills up grey fast) and b) flushing black tanks a couple times at end of season.
