Anyone that takes 30 minutes to set up a pop up is retarded.
I think I get mine up in 10-15.

Camped in pop ups since I was born. My parents still use the 21' Starcraft they bought new in 1985 it is finally starting to show its age though. It can be up in less than 10 minutes, and the only drawback is if you have to put it down wet. They would store stuff inside, but if you plan ahead you could access most of it with it folded down. The closet, fridge and food drawers were the only things not accessible.

It was less noticeable towing it behind our H3 than my expo trailer is. I got 18mpg towing their trailer.

Sure maybe not in this thread thou. I'm thinking building my own, with help. My wants aren't being made. 16 inch wheels 10' cargo space- could have low cabinets- kayaks would hang over them. TW200 in center.

I taked to a guy that has one for sale here. Its a tandem axle 1991 Jayco I believe ? It has a king bed one end and full on the other. It is ban kept and asking 2500 . I can get more info if needed ?
He bought a new one with a slide out and a point he made is slide outs kill all the storage space inside the closed trailer.

If you prefer a trailer, an all aluminum cargo trailer is a nice option.
it can haul stuff and b camped in. Light, wont rust, hard to beat!
way cheaper, and more versatile than a camper.

Thanks-Both are good ideas.
If I make one I can buy what I need as I get money to pay for it. If I buy made- I have to sell stuff.

They may be light, but they tow just as badly. My dad has a 7.5x16 enclosed Legend trailer, I get the same mileage pulling that as my 8.5x20 standard built United trailer - both empty. Either one will drop my 2011 Hemi Ram to <10 mpg.
