    My 10 yr old and I went to Northwest River CG last week. There was a older couple two sites down from us sitting outside as we were making camp. They had a fairly new small TT. As we were finishing up they went for a walk and were looking hard as they went by. When they came back by they stopped an were making small talk and made a comment about our Niagara. The wife said that when we pulled out the beds she was amazed at the size of the pup and was asking about what it had. I was more than happy to show them. They were really surprised when they saw the inside. The husband said he wish their only bed was a king. He also commented about the usable floorspace was a bit more then their TT. Needless to say they impressed at our pup. Made us feel a little gitty that they were so impressed at our pup.

    We have gotten similar comments about our 2716g. It's so big on the inside. A lot of people have no idea how far pop ups have come.

    LOL. What a fun reaction. We had the same thing when we brought our '05 Fleetwood Sequoia home last spring. Half our neighborhood came to look. They were amazed it was a pop up!

    It does make you feel kind of proud. I had a couple discussing my camper once. Although they didn't stop to to chat. It started with, "look at that popup, I bet it has a slide out". "no, I doubt it" he said. The couple continues to walk, " I told you so" she replied. Kind of funny really. Some are amazed pop-ups even have a slideout. Then again when I was looking to upgrade from my bare bones 1990 Jayco I was surprised to learn pop-ups had hot water heater and built in toilet and shower now. Which was another reason I went with a popup vrs a 19' TT or hybrid. Why spend the extra money for a full size TT when I could get all the same amenities plus more sleeping and walking room and easier tow.

    It's funny that the main critics I had to impress when I bought my pop up was my own family lol. I have 3 high school aged kids. Every one of them thought that there was no way we could all fit with all our belongings and be comfortable. Even when I was preparing for our first trip, they all kept saying that there was no way I was going to fit everything in there. When we all arrived at the campground and I set everything up they were all amazed. They kept commenting on how big it was and so roomy lol needless to say there was more than enough room for everyone and our belongings. Another naysayer was my uncle. Now that he seen everything my pop up has to offer, he is looking into getting one himself!! [LOL]
