    Bought 1/23/2021.
    2018 Viking by Forest River M-16 RBD
    It is in excellent near new condition. Original ad, but I don't know how long it will be available. Work and life has been crazy so I only have two pictures at the time of this posting. Lord willing there will be a lot more in a lot of different places.

    A big bonus to this camper is no appliance belching hot exhaust into the sitting area under the awning.

    Also looked at a couple small bunkhouse models. Ones in the size and weight I was looking for are rather tight inside.

    That's a nice looking unit, congrats! Man RV prices are cheaper in the US. Up here on the west coast of Canada that unit would be $18,000+

    Sweet purchase - have fun with it! (I've also just joined the HTT team, with a 2013 Coachmen Apex 151RBX in very nice shape - it definitely is a lot easier to set up than a PUP!)

    They can also have very little CCC - sometimes they can't even handle a full tank of fresh water without going overweight.

    BTW, with the back rest cushion removed the sofa makes a nice napping spot.

    Years ago I had a 22 foot Invader travel trailer. I wish I still had it. But the popup serves a purpose. I don't have the horsepower now to pull a big HTT. Beside I don't think I could get it in to some of the places I camp. I only boondock and some of the road aren't that great. Much of the time I'm in four-wheel-drive just getting there. I don't want to sell my pup, but if I could find a smaller HTT under about 3,000 lbs that I could tow with my Ranger 4.0, I just might add it to my collection. I'd use the pup for hardcore boondocking sites, and the HTT for traveling the country.
