Yes, it is sad. Pups are not dead, only on life support. I had one for many years and both of my daughters and their families still have 'em. I liked reading through the posts, reliving our great times and even occasionally offering up some advice.

I suppose it is a sign of the times.

One of the perceived issues is the insecurity of canvas sides vs. hard sides. However, you don’t see many hard side crank ups either.

Maybe the ultra-light trailers have taken away much of the pup market. Although I have a fifth-wheel now (gotta have my recliner!), DW and I enjoyed our pup for ten years and took month-long trips in it. I think that the ten-foot pup (about twenty feet when set up) had more space than the ultra-lights: two beds one 4'x7' and the other 6'x7'. We put clothes and a lot of other things on the smaller bed while set up. (Clothes were stowed in the tow vehicle while traveling.) We had heater and AC. We even had a shower (a curtain around the toilet). But, alas, there was no recliner.

We went to the RV show in Tampa earlier this year. IIRC, there was only 1 traditional pop-up on site that we saw.

We had Starcraft and Venture pop-ups growing up. Went all over the US and Canada.

They use to be great entry level prices. Now they cost as much as a fully self contained Travel Trailer.
