    Here is a listing of a HiLO for sale, nice looking with lots of amenities.
    It is more of a go/raise up, if you ask me, lol.
    What you guys think?
    HiLO

    Hi-Lo's are reallya nice trailer. We had a 1996 and we enjoyed it the whole time we had it. We ended up selling it about 4 years ago. Then we decided we wanted to camp again and so we bought our Bayside. The Hi-Lo was easy to pull and very easy to put up. It was hydraulic. All you had to do was level it and push the button and up it went. Kinda sorry we sold it. But we love our PUP...AZ [8D]

    As new HiLo owners, we have always considered the HiLo to be a popup. Getting too old to deal with cranking up our fleetwood , but sure do miss the open air beds. It's the price to pay for being more "mature" and is so much better than giving up our camping lifestyle. best wishes to all from Snoqualmie WA. bill & Barbara

    Hell yeah, it's a pop up !! Technically, I think they call it an 'expandable', but if you gotta do more at the campsite than crawl in it and go to sleep, then I call it a pop up !!

    I'd say yes, it's a pop-up. However, I'd think twice about buying one now. I just went to this website, that says the company is going out of business. That's a shame, those trailers are a neat compromise between a "regular" pop-up and a TT.

    I have always liked parts of them. I think they were the only company that offered a real bunk that you pull down from the ceiling. My dads old Coachman class A had one over the drivers seat that was great.

    It's sad to see them go.

    I'd also say it's not a pop up. Looks more like a travel trailer. However, it does look luxurious and comfortable.

    I agree Paynster...I had seen these on the highway, but really didn't know what they were, I was expecting the worlds largest popups with pull out beds. These look awesome to me...too bad they're going out of business. Hopefully if they liquidate someone will pick up the pieces and carry on.
