I wanted to put this question out to this forum after a discussion I had last week with a salesman at Camping World. I stopped in to pick up a part, decided to stroll the lot just to kill a couple of minutes. That, of course, meant I soon heard the familiar sound of the electric golf cart coming up behind me. I politely informed the guy I was not in the market for anything, just browsing/killing time. Being the good salesman, he decided to press ahead anyway. "I'm only in the market for a PUP. I'm not buying a Livin' Lite (the only ones they had on the lot that day) it isn't big enough for my needs." His response, "have you thought about a travel trailer?" Mine: "Yes, and you can't sell me one I can tow that will fit the number of people and animals we have on our trips. I'm not buying a different TV, so a TT is out of the question." I then had to explain the towing limitations of my Jeep (he really wanted to convince me a TT would be better) and that I can tow a nice HW with as many amenities as a TT, with twice the space of a TT that weighed the same amount, so I was firmly in the PUP market for the foreseeable future. He understood where I was coming from after that, so the sales push towards his shiny new TTs eased up after that. I asked him why they only had TTs on the lot, and no PUPs. He said the market today is people who want to be "instant campers." Back in or pull through, set the trailer down, roll out the awning, plug in to shore power and start camping. They don't want the hassle of setting up/taking down, etc. I get it, but at the same time...is that accurate for the market as a whole, or just my particular area? All of the local dealers within 1 hour of me have no PUPs other than a small 8 ft box, no A/C entry level PUP, the Livin' Lite, the really small trailers. No 12s, no HWs, no toy hauler decks. Are these PUPs more niche, or is the market really starting to dwindle for PUPs? I'm just curious what everyone else thinks. I really don't have any idea, so I thought it would make for an interesting discussion here.
