    Here it is up and ready to go. On the gulf coast with no oil in sight. We had a great time. Have had it for 3 weeks and have used it for 3 weekends. [​IMG]

    Nice. I have to admit I am a little jealous. I have been wanting a pop up for quite some time. Been dreaming of the Evolution Series

    They arent that bad on the cost. You just have to look around and be patient. The only company that had new ones was in Panama City Fl. That is about an hour and 15 min from me. I paid 6800 for it new with the ac installed. it will sleep my 4 kids and my wife and me fairly comfortable.

    Looking!
    Just make sure when you tow that the weight balance is forward, toward the tongue. Have witnessed a pop up camper bouncing all over the place, taking up both lanes and scaring the heck out of the driver. We just dropped back and waited for it to settle.

    Yea I can see that. I do not use the water tank. I have some storage under the seat on the table. It is up on the front of the trailer. We have been back to St Andrews a couple more times. The Gulf of Mexico is looking wonderful. I wish that we could spend more time there. The whole family loves it. Thanks for the advice.

    We all love it. We have lots of campgrounds around here. We can go to the beach in an hour and a half. We can be in the mountains in about 6 hours. I love having this thing. I know who has slept in my bed. No more high dollar hotel rooms. If I do not like my neighbors I can hook up and leave. With all of our gear in it we only weigh about 2000 lbs. My 2.7 is very happy with this.

    I was wondering the same thing...

    Also, how well does the AC work? I've been wanting a pop-up for a while. My boss tried to talk me out of it...said you are better off just renting a larger travel trailor. He also said the AC's do not cool well enough in the pop-ups.

    i know you said the camper is light, how does the stock suspension like the weight of the trailer? or are you not stock?

    Wife and kids are in her car. The ac is kick ass. We have to turn it down at night because all of the women get cold. Suspension does really good. It is all stock. Might drop an inch. Basically it levels out the truck.
