I have a popup camper and am seriously considering a switch to a fiberglass unit. I love my popup, but have found that the set-up/take-down is just too much work. I am wondering if anyone here has had a popup and can offer me any comparisons as far as how they tow or anything else good or bad. I appreciate all info. Thanks!
Well i went from a 13 FT Boler
to a pop-up.
The pop-up i have is an Apache Solid state so it has no canvas to worry about, it has ABS plastic panels that fold up.
The visibility as Mike Watters stated is a big advantage for me, the pup is a lot easier to reverse into our yard, also a clear view in the mirror when on the highway.
The pup is roomier and i don't mind the set-up, in-fact I look forward to it, a little camping ritual, it usually gets a few campers from the next sites coming over to watch and ask questions when they see the ABS sides going up with the roof.

i don't have the one advantage that canvas pop-ups have over mine and over the fibreglass eggs and that is ventilation, canvas pop-ups have a great airy tent like feel to them, cross breezes are nice plus the visibility all around is hard to beat.
On saying all that my heart skips a beat when i see a Boler
especially a Trillium
, i would love to try a Trillium
