    I like the idea of a pop up trailer due to the weight, the ease of storage, and being able to get into the trickier spots, anyone have one?
    pros and cons?

    pics of your set up would be cool!

    Enough modifications to piss the wife off!!
    Don't have pics here at work but I have a 97 Coleman WestLake.....24' when opened....had it since it was new. If you look at used campers be sure to check the pop up tents for rips in the seams. Also check the rolled rubber liner on the top....they have a tendancy to crack with age. We have used ours alot over the years. Complete set up of the camper takes about 20min.....well worth the compact size it gives you.

    thats exactly why I want one, so easy! and you can pack some things in them while folded down for the drive, leaving more room in the truck for other stuff.

    alot of metal, small engine, decent travel.
    caged, camburg long travel, 50t leafpack (soon to be installed) light rack over cab, 5pt harnesses etc
    i have one, i really like it because i can putt it with my 4 cylinder and it doesnt have alot of wind drag.

    but, i hate setting it up, thats the only part that really pisses me off.

    if you buy used, like said above DO NOT buy anything that has rips in the canvas
