    Going to pick up our NTU TT tomorrow morning. I'm looking forward to getting it into my driveway and getting it all set up. Time to pass the ole PUP on to the next (much smaller) family and camp more often.

    yetibiker, very nice, looks very well taken care of. Hopefully it gets you out much more and more comfortably as a family. I know moving to our HTT from our pups definitely got us out much more often.

    Good luck, hope it goes well. :)

    We have made the decision to move out of the Popup and go to a 6x10 Silver Shadow! We ordered it today!

    I am not sure if this is the dark side, maybe sideways? It is not any of the above! My hope is it will lighter for tow vehicle and less setup for the galley! We are having it built to our specifications and it will be ready in six weeks!

    This is my favorite photo from the web site:

    We have always enjoyed this portal and as with others gone to other sides, I will keep checking in here from time to time!

    We bought our '95 Sunnybrook 26 DB on Labor Day 2013 from a local private seller. We love it. Sorry I don't have very good pics yet. And we've never taken any of the inside.

    We bought a 2014 Coachmen Clipper 17BH last week. It's a 22' Bunkhouse. It's about the largest TT I could tow with my present vehicle (Ford Explorer). We're happy with it. Looking forward to using it in March or April. We were tent campers for a lot of years, moved to PUP last year. While I liked it well enough, I still didn't love it. Felt it took us almost as long to set up the PUP as it did our large family tent. The new TT, an ultra-lite, weighs just a little bit more than my large PUP.

    Lynn, do you mind me asking what company you ordered your teardrop from? I've been helping someone shop them, and a new supplier would be welcome to my list!!

    Thanks!

    It's a Little Guy 6 x 10 Silver Shadow.

    We want no set up for the galley thus the Silver Shadow, it has storage options! We want the bed ready to go for one night stops! And we want the 6 wide because we have two medium Australian Shepherds who travel with us every where we go. We will need a screen house for a living area, and something to cover the hatch galley are in inclement weather. So we are not really done with tent material! So it is not an upgrade, but keeps us outside and in nature, and keeps us in a smaller tow vehicle, they stopped making the Jeep Liberty! We will not increase gas mileage with a travel trailer, but we are unsure of if we will decrease mileage until we get it!

    Here is the website:
    Www.golittleguy.com

    They also have a Forum for owners and wannabes, it is run by the company, but seems to allow for some negative comments or workarounds to problems, the company responds to issues on the forum and changs the manufacture according to what people are discussing on the board.

    We saw a few at an RV show and were impressed with the workmanship as opposed to the workmanship in the travel trailers in a similar price range!

    And it is being built to our wishes, we have added things we wanted, even taking LED night lights available in the new T@G and putting them in ours for us!
