Here are reasons we bought and love our Popup. Why did you buy and still love your Popup? Reasons Why We Personally Bought a Popup Better than a Tent Up and Off the Ground. My wife wanted to be up and off the ground, rather than in a tent, right on the ground. No more rain ruining a tent camping trip. In the past, tents would notoriously leak and make campers generally miserable. No more cold and clammy feeling all day. More like a Cabin, but less expensive We didn't want to spend $2500 - $3000 per year on a decent, clean, 1 week cabin resort anymore. We had rented a resort cabin for 4-5 years after we gave up on tenting but it kept costing a lot each year to rent something nice. Brand new, clean popup was a great solution In Popups you breath fresh air every night. A cabin or Tent Trailer is like a house or mobile home. Cost and Capacity Large sleeping Capacity for 6-9 people, for our family of 6 (can't find this in a small Travel Trailer) Could tow with our present minivan, no need to buy an SUV, saving $20,000 Lower cost than Travel Trailers that sleep a family of 6, saving $10,000 Could store in 3rd stall of our garage, saving $50-75/month * 8 months =$400-600/year * 10 yrs =$4,000-6000 over 10 yrs vs a Travel Trailer Lower gas consumption costs Total savings of $34,000-36,000 I added this list to my website at this link, to improve and clarify my reasons over time, if you want to check back later.
