how was it going from towing a pop up to a tt
We used to camp in a Viking pop up and towing it we didn't even know it was there LOL...
We had two Viking Pop-Ups -- the first one was small and we towed it with a minivan, the second was bigger (had a slide out) and we towed that with an Explorer. We were about 15 minutes from home this time so can't say much about the towing experience yet.
The biggest difference was having the bed already made up, the clothes in the closet (no suitcases or duffle bags in the way) and the BATHROOM! We did use the bath house for certain things but it was nice to not have to get dressed in the middle of the night and go out in the dark!
There are also a bunch of little things like having an electric awning instead of having to pop up half way, unzip the awning, and dealing with that. The kitchen sink is better (bigger) and of course the fridge, stove, oven, and TV. It was also super nice to not have to pack anything in the tow vehicle, to be unloaded there and at home. Everything pretty much stayed in the TT until we got home and then only cold stuff or stuff that could melt came into the house (along with the clothes of course).
All in all I think we will have more time to enjoy the camping experience rather than spending a lot of that time setting up and tearing down!
