Hi, I have been camping since I was born and pretty much all of it has been in a tent. I love being out in the woods but I am enjoying the set up and tear down the last few years lol and that keeps me from getting out for quick weekend trips. It is just my dog for company a lot of the time. I have been around all types of campers/trailers/motorhomes and I think a popup is the right choice for me. I am still shopping and definitely on a budget. I have a jeep Liberty now which will eventually be replaced with a 2 door jeep as my tow vehicle. I prefer to boondock when I can but don't mind a high campground either.
