Pop-up To Outback
Posted 11 March 2005 - 11:25 AM
We loved our Coleman Utah CP, but the set up/down process was begining to get to my wife and I.
Thought about the hybrids (with the canvas pop outs/down) but then we saw the light (play the Heaven music) when we walked into an Outback.

Went from Fleetwood popup to 19' Prowler Lite, then to Outback 28F RL-S.

We bought a really clean used pop up in Dec 2004 and went on a 2 day and 3 day trip. We haven't even figured out how everything works until the last trip. I made some mods and built two custom laminated table tops, one to cover the sink for extra space and one to replace the stove top outside. Both work great.
Our family enjoyed camping so much we want to keep doing it in the future, but the pop up is kind of cramped and going potty at night is a pain. We figured we would move up next year.
That is until we camped next to a 2002 25rss at the campgrounds. I thought the trailer design was really cool, so I looked at the GVW sticker and saw the weight would work with our Suburban. That was all it took to get my mind thinking and calculating. Move a little money here and there and "presto bamo", it's in the budget.
When I get back from the camping trip, I got back and did some research on the web and like everything I read and thought this forum was awesome. Well wouldn't you know it, when I looked in the local paper, there is a 2002 25rss for sale. Long story short. We are picking it up in two weekends and have the popup for sale.
We can't wait to go camping in style.

Like Vdub, we made the move from our beloved little Coleman pop up to a 26' Dutchmen TT to a 28' Timberland then on to our pride and joy 28BHS. I suspect that all of us who have made this transition share the basis for doing so. It doesn't take too many rainy weekends in a tent or PU to make a person appreciate the advantages of a hardside.

Started tent camping with parents when I was a kid.
Tent camped with my own family after marriage.
Moved into a Palomino popup when we got tired of laying on the ground, wet. (ie...got old)
Was also looking at Hybrids because WIFE DEMANDED BATHROOM!
Saw OUTBACK...never looked back.

Started out backpacking in the 70's. Moved to a more sedentary form of tent camping in the late 80's. Purchased a Coleman Nevada in '97 (after the birth of our son). Took a year off last year, and now onto the 28RS-DS.
I think I see a trend here...
