After much thought and debate the DW and I have decided it was time to trade in the pup. After looking at hybrids and travel trailers we decided a travel trailer was a better fit. DW was heart broken when I informed her she would not be able to stay a member on PopUpPortal. She didn't want me posting this for fear of being booted out. Pick up the new trailer on March 26th so she is ok till then................LOL

My wife loves ours. I am sure you all will to. So much easier on set up and tear down. Definitely use more gas though. Have a great time with it. The walk around beds are great to.

Thanks br9, I'm sure we will. Really enjoyed the 2 pups we have owned and will miss the breeze with everything opened up. But the setup and teardown when staying overnight after a long day of driving takes its toll. We are not getting any younger and DW was in a car accident years ago that left her with a nerve disease. So the less work means more time to enjoy the relaxation.

What kind of TT did you get? I also don't believe you will be booted off the site, a lot of the internal workings of a TT is still similar to a pup!

All right you real lite virgins, if you were really going to the dark side you'd have nixed camping altogether and started staying in hotels. Boooooo!
I think as long as you're out there sharing the outdoors with other folks in their various ways of camping then you're still one of us. [CP]

LOL.........No hotels. I consider a HTT going to the grey side. Still quite light inside with the bunkends, but with no bunkends is dark. The sound of the rain on a rubber roof will be different then the canvas as well

I said I went to the gray side when I got a TrailManor. I called it gray as opposed to dark because while the trailer has hard sides it still pops up and down and the beds hang over the ends like a PUP. I'd call hybrids and TTs the dark side and reserve the term "really dark side" for MHs.

We looked at the TrailManor but out of our price range. Would consider that grey as well for the same reasons. Consider HTT grey due to the canvas bunk ends, but most people on here seem to consider HTT's the dark side. That's why the term "really dark side", no popping or canvas.

Well, since you didnt ask (lol) Here is my perception of the terminology below... Besides, I think we "all know" what a Pop Up truly indicates, dont we? Just take a look at the website Logo! [8D]

PUPS---- The Bright Side [:D]

Hybrids (hard sides, but tents on the end(s) )--- The Gray Side [A]

TTs or RVs--- whether they "pop-up" or not-- if they have essentially 4 hard sides--- I'm lookin' at The Dark Side [:!]

Sorry, Unstable T.... everyone here still loves you though.. :)

Thanks. Set up the pup to finish cleaning it and take everything out before taking it to the dealer. Going to miss it but looking forward to the new TT.

Hey, if the TT gets you to the campgrounds to enjoy them more, and it fits your needs, you made a good choice! :) Congrats and have fun!

Thanks Snow...which park has a winter program?? Hope to run in to you as well...
Rob & Suzanne

Valens Conservation Area .. they do a winter program from Jan. 1 to April ... I'll send you a link to place to get the info...

Were easy to spot in a park ... look for an old GMC pickemup truck and a beagle that like to sleep in the human's chair (see my picks for details)... [:D]
