It seems that life and times have repeated themselves for us.

Decades ago, we transitioned from a Popup to a Travel Trailer because the kids were outgrowing the Popup. Years later we found ourselves selling the Travel Trailer because we were so busy with kids in band, choir, drum line, theater and sports.

Now the kids are gown and out of the house. So, we got the bright idea to get back into camping. Got ourselves a new Popup. Then we discovered that the summers here in GA were too hot for the A/C to keep up with. So today, we are the proud new owners of another Travel Trailer.

Till death do us part!!

My wife & I did the same thing! Sold everything because life was to busy. A few years later - Let's go Camping! So we found a bank repo Pop-up - used it twice and absolutely hated it. We went right out and bought a brand new 2017 Jayco 23BHM. Bought the pop-up and traded it in for more than I paid for it -SO all is good!!

Happy camping

First time buying a camper. I was inclined for a pop-up since I still want to maintain the outdoors feel.

But saw one taking a bit of time and struggle to put up one. That's when I decided to go with the wife's preference (that's my excuse and I'm staying with it).

We also looked at the Mercedes Benz van conversion camper and my wife asked, it's way cool, but where's the shower/toilet? And for the first time we agreed on something, it's not for us. Whew!

We had a pop up as well, then a travel trailer that was parked at a camp ground. After the kids grew up we wanted to "camp" again so we got a 17 foot hybrid trailer which we used for 7 years and really enjoyed it. A couple of years ago we did a 25 day trip to the Yukon, after we got back the first thing we did was get a 27 foot travel trailer - size does matter!!

Parents always took us tent camping. Cheap vacation for 7 kids. After we all moved out they upgraded to a pop up. Got too old to go camping so I got it. Got a lot of years out of it but it needed some major ceiling work so sold it. Went back to tent camping for a few years and decided we wanted the comfort of heat and air, ability to have it packed and hit the road and relativity easy setup. If weather is bad, so what. Better to be stuck in a camper on a rainy day than be at the office on a sunny day.

Last fall got a TT and love it. Ours is a bunk house which at first we did not want. However, those bunks are great for putting suitcases and other stuff. We are taking our 6 year old grand daughter camping in a couple of weeks

When we bought it the goal was at least 4 trips a year, we will have 5 this year.

Tent->Pop Up->Tent->TT.
