Many people begin their camping journey by starting out with a pop-up camper. It can a good place to start as you learn the ropes of the camping life. Pop-ups are easy on the budget and simpler to maintain than a motorhome, fifth wheel, or trailer. It can launch you into a great way of life while requiring less of your time and money.
They work well for a young family of four people or so. With two fold outs there is sleeping space for parents and a couple of kids. Pop-up campers like that they are up off the ground, unlike they would be in a tent, and have more storage and appliances on-board. You’ll probably have a small dining area in which the seat can also convert to a bed, a small fridge, cooktop and sink. This makes things very convenient, particularly for people with young families. We see plenty of couples who arrive with a pop-up, too. So there are benefits to all kinds of camping families.
The higher priced pop-ups can even include a cassette toilet and shower. These days, they even come with slides for added interior space. Another nice aspect of a pop-up is protection from rain and cool temps. The sides are heavy canvas and will protect you from the wind while the solid roof keep the rain from leaking through. Pop-up campers are efficient and light weight. They are much easier to tow, back up, and park than a full size RV. They are easier to set up than a tent. And when not in use, you can keep your pop-up stocked with non-perishables which reduces the packing you’ll do before departing on your next camping trip.
They can also be rented, which is a good option for campers who’d like to try before they buy. You get to experience what it’s like to camp in one and get a feel for features you’d like in the one you plan to buy. We think you’ll enjoy camping in a pop-up and we look forward to seeing you around the campground this summer. Be sure to make your reservation soon and we’ll see you when you get here.
