Hello all *Originally posted this in the Introduce yourself area, but didn't get any responses While I joined this forum quite a long time ago I haven't been on here for a while. I toyed with the idea of getting a pop up to tow with our 2013 Subaru Outback (tow rating max 2700 lbs), but decided not to at the time as we did not have good storage options. We still don't have options, but are considering a $20/per month storage unit for the winter months and keeping it in our 1-car garage during the active seasons. I want to go as light as possible as to give more flexibility as well as stability. We would like to get over hills without being in the right lane with the hazard flashers on (4 cylinder boxer engine). I've also heard getting a light hitch/tongue weight is key as well. Would like to stay 170 or less. A couple things i've heard -10' box units ride better than 8' models and usually have less tongue weight given weight distribution -Most pop ups are wood, skinned in vinyl or aluminum and can rot from the inside without knowledge -Some models/manufacturers use cheap tent material to save on the front end What we want/don't need -Really don't need a furnace. Don't really plan to -Would like to have the mini fridge. Keeping critters out of coolers has been one of out pet peaves with tent camping -The ability to open the side door and throw in perishables while keeping non perishables in there is a big draw. Getting ready to camp prevents us from camping, so having everything i the pop up except perishables is great -Do not plan to cook inside. Really like the idea of the in/out stove to mount on the outside -Have 2 adults and 2 kids under 10 yrs old -Do not need AC right now but would like prewired for it -May travel to the following areas: Acadia national Park (Maine), Great Smoky Mountains (Tennessee). Rocky Mountain National Park (Colorado). Glacier National park, etc A couple models i'm considering. Please be frank with me and upfront and honest. Questions with them as well -Forest River Rockwood 1940LTD Flagstaff 206LTD (1493# dry wt/174# Hitch) *My understanding is these are clones. Only difference is fabric color. Are they durable, is the tent fabric durable? Any issues with them? -Jayco 806 (no longer produced, but have heard its a really nice unit) Also its 8', but has a parallel dinette that makes to a bed, so would do the job in terms of space *Are they durable, is the tent fabric durable? Any issues with them? -Starcraft Starflyer 10 (1325# dry/140# Hitch) *Are they durable, is the tent fabric durable? Any issues with them? The earlier models had a zip door, but now they are more conventional. Given the weight and size of beds i'm really interested in this one. -Quicksilver 10.0 (1050# Dry/135# Hitch) *Extremely interested in the concept of this, but pricing is crazy and not sure i'm prepared to spend this much. Any issues with these? *Are they durable, is the tent fabric durable?
