I just had to pipe in on this one. When I was a kid, my family had a Bonair pop up. And the biggest reason was family size. I've seen campers, fifth wheels and even motor homes that don't sleep as many as pop ups. My family was fairly large, and if we had a 13' Boler
, a couple of us would have been relegated to a tent. You want to sleep 6, look at the fifth wheel scamp
, but forget about towing with a car.
But, I also have many a memory of the uber foul language that would come from my father's mouth every time he and mom set up the thing, and took it down. And I remember the door never worked properly unless you were 100% level, no ifs, ands or buts. And then the rain. I'd wake up in the morning and touch the canvas. Don't touch the canvas! Great, now I'm wet.
For me, it was the inevitable and perpetual inconveniences that came along with that pop up, that I'll never own one. And to go back to my first paragraph, I right now have two children and a 13' Boler
. If we have child #3, and we probably will, I want sooooo badly a Scamp
fifth wheel! Or....oldest gets to sleep in a tent!! :~)
