This is all the room we need... We watch HDTV, I get to play with my HAM RADIO, Mombear cooks up great meals, and it sleeps great...






We get to spend all the time we want outside around the patio area and fire pit...
It doesn't get much better than this for us...


Cell phones and Internet works great everywhere...

Can go 450 miles on a tank of gasoline (20-22MPG)...

Can park anywhere and even do a MC Donalds pull thru...

I bought two new 15-inch tires last year... That was only expense other then Insurance and tags/inspections... My truck gets about the same gas mileage whether I am pulling the trailer or not...

Will pull right up next to one those hugh Motorhomes guys at the next redlight...

My sister and her bunch are RV Travelers and have the big MONTANA 5th Wheel setup. We meet up with them occasionally at Myrtle Beach for mini family reunion .. They are all wore plum out the first night...

It all depends on what you want to do and how much you want to spend I reckon... I usually go fishing with my son-in-law that lives at Myrtle Beach while they all rest up...

I just can't imagine stuffing a big rig onto a campsite in the East. Most are limited to 26 foot lengths as they are heavily wooded.

We did get a lot of entertainment watching a motorhome get expertly squeezed into a site at a Provincial Park in Newfoundland. The driver was very skilled. Kudos to you.

But he could not open the door and get out. No room.

Thats when we decided to go little for us!

It was an option for the dual 15K A\C's. But, here in Houston, it is almost mandatory. No kids so I enjoy the added living\entertainment space. But, I am sure your kids are super excited to have their own room and bath. There is something to be said about getting them out of your hair when on holiday. Worth the price of admission alone!!!!! If you did not have kids, I am sure you would have plenty of cash for any truck you wanted. The truck is nice but I am sure it does not bring me near the joy your children give you.

I love pop ups. Like you said, they are easy to tow, lots of storage, can park them anywhere, and still have all the comfort one needs for camping for four. I miss mine. I may just have to get one again. I really am a big fan.
