I've been looking at TTs and pop ups for the better part of a year and have zero'd in on Rockwood/Flagstaff High Walls. I like the space of the HW296 and like the fridge access with the top down of the HW277 (or 276). The 277 also has a nice outdoor stove/sink, but at the sacrifice of storage. The 296 is less than 400 lbs heavier but provides 800 lbs of extra cargo weight. My TV is a 2001 Yukon XL with 5.3L V8, max tow rating of 7800 lbs with max tow package, so weight isn't a major concern with either camper. Either would fit into our garage. My wife and I tent camped when kids were little and we'd (I'd like to get back to it again, but not on the hard ground and with a few amenities afforded by pop ups. I'd love to hear from experienced owners on a few questions: 1. How much storage is actually needed? Given that most trips would be just be my wife and I, I would expect most of our gear would go into the Yukon. Is almost 1300 lbs of cargo capacity overkill? 2. How much difference will the tandem axles make on towing experience? Would anyone still recommend WDH/sway control with either camper? 3. Is fridge access with top down a big deal? Any chance one can "crawl" to the fridge in the 296 with the top down? The high wall aspect seems to make this potentially doable if needed, but probably not desirable. Can the top be partially raised to get to fridge? 4. How realistic are long trips with a pop up - something like 2-3 weeks? We're in TX, so summer camping here is not very attractive. There's not a significant price differential between the 2 campers, so I'm hoping to hear pros/cons from actual experience. Thanks in advance for any/all input!
