Can't say I've ever heard anything about the extinction of PUP's myself. As some have pointed out already, there are always lots of sold signs on them every time I take in an RV show and sale. Their ease of towing and the fact that they are so close to the tenting experience, but better, is what keeps people buying. I just can't see the manufacturers bailing on selling them.

In order to answer OP question one needs manufactiring and sales data. Acording to this document (rvda.org/AM/Template.cfm?Section=Retail_Statistics1&Template=/CM/ContentDisplay.cfm&ContentID=7617) in 2011 travel traler sales reached 114000 untis, fith wheels reached 40000 untis while folding trailers barely made 10000. That is 1 folding trailer per 15 "hardsided" trailers. This is not a new trend, popup sales are flat while hardsided trailer sales are relentlessly going up.
