    Looking for a Pop-Up trailer with a cargo deck.
    I want a toilet/shower, off-road type tires and suspension, room for a small dirt bike on the front.
    Really only need room for 2 people.
    Who has the strongest frame?
    Best roof?
    What are some of the companies to avoid?
    Who makes good ones?
    Probably looking at Starcraft, Jayco, Somerset, Fleetwood
    Got the towing package on the truck.

    We're still looking, probably going to be a Jayco 10y or a StarCraft 11 rt

    I live near where Jatco makes most of their stuff and have friends that worked in the plant.
    Run, they have tons of roof problems at least with their RVs, and have super shoddy quality control.

    From what I hear, none of the other newer ones are any better, I hear that around 2005-2008 were a little better.

    Eh, I'd just avoid Jatco. But if you get a good price, I wouldn't worry too much.

    You could also look at A-frame campers, like the A-liner or Rockwood brand

    A frames are pretty cool, quick set-up, light weight, but you don't get very much space or ventilation.

    Lol don't jinx my roof! I have a 2019 Jayco 195RB. I'll agree that the construction quality is heavily reliant on Luan and staples. Fingers crossed that she'll hold together! (Doing fine so far!)
