My wife and I are debating about whether to buy a camper now or wait till I am done with school next spring. I thought we had decided to put it off, but she texted me at work today and said "I really, really want to go camping". We will get one (a popup), just not sure when. A friend of mine owns a Jayco dealership here in Ohio so we might have to pay him a visit.
I am sure I will be on here asking questions from the masses who have alot of experience.
Welcome to the forum Jebster. Lots of friendly, helpful, and knowledgable folks here so ask any questions you may have. Good luck with your decision on when to purchase but having a friend in 'the business' is a good way to start.
Whether you get a camper now or you wait until you finish school, I say you get exactly what you want the first time around. Also, remember, if you have to finance, you can at least deduct the interest from you taxes.

We started off in a tent and then a tent trailer and gradually moved up to our 21M hybrid. We enjoy having the canvas overhead when we're sleeping - gives you the feeling of a tent with the comfort of a travel trailer.
Hope you find what you need..tent trailers are a great start. My advice is to get one with a one piece door. The two piece door can be a hassle if you are not totally level on your site.
