Wife and I started off in the 80's in tents with the kids. That lasted one weekend. Bought a popup the next weekend and had many wonderful times. Traded it in for a small 5er as we were planning a trip to Alaska. Never got the chance. Sold the 5er, but missed camping so much that we bought another popup. Took daughter, 3 grandkids everywhere. Traded that in for a hybrid and took the wife and me for a 3 week trip from Denver to NH. Had a great time except that the KOA's are either next to a major hiway, next to train tracks, airport or a combination of all the above. Didn't like the noise that came through the canvas or having to deal with moisture under the beds. Last week we traded that in for a ST26BH. Love it and will accommodate all 6 of us in comfort. Looking forward to next season. Just enjoy your time with family and spending time with nature.
