Things to Look for in a Popup Camper 
My folks have decided to finally give RVing a try on their own after coming along a few times with me and my family. I recently accompanied them to a local trade show and they decided that a popup camper is what they would want to get. I really want so much to help them find a really good deal, but I really don't have that much knowledge when it comes to popups. What are the things that we should look for when choosing a good popup camper model?

There is an article here on How to Buy an RV. You can check it out for some info on it.

Check the interior to make sure that it's got ample space for you to store everything without bumping into them. I'd also recommend to choose the newer models since the older ones don't have any built-in bathrooms or areas to put an A/C.

Re: Things to Look for in a Popup Camper 
My wife and I stepped up to a pop up after many years of tenting. We started out with just your basic one. Stove and frig in it. We had that one for 2 seasons .Then bought a used pop up Viking with a slide-out dinette with a heater three burner stove and a three way frig. The slide-out gave us more room to move around. It also had a fold down couch in it to. It was nice to have another place to sit at besides the dinette on rainy days. The heater was also nice just to get the dampness out of the inside.
We also found both of them on Craigslist. They were both used but in great shape. The most we spent was $2800.00 They just needed some TLC and a good cleaning. We went with used until we found the one that was right for us then bought a new one.
Good Luck and we hope your folks have fun!
