Hi,

I think pop ups are great for 3 season use.

Ok that made me laugh some.

Back on subject. I don't think it really matters at least not to me. As long doesn'toes'nt look like a rolling garbage can. Many don't want to/can't haul anything big. I may look at a neighboring campsite and say we were there once, but I'm not going to judge you by what you are camping in. It's camping, roll with what ya got. smile.gif

When I was young and foolish, we snuck into a campground (Yellowstone) that did not allow tent camping. In the morning we were told that the reason was because of recent bear attacks. I think a bear would not have much trouble getting into a popup either.

We were camping in the Smokies many years ago. The people next door had a pop-up. The lady put bacon grease in a jar, put the jar into a metal cannister and put that into a wooden box. That evening while they were at a campfire talk, one of the bears ripped into their pop-up, tore open the wooden box, the metal cannister and broke the jar. The ranger said that was exactly why they tell everyone never, never, never put anything that might have the slightest smell of food into a tent or pop-up, but always put it in the trunk of your car. Those furry rascals can sniff out food better than a politician can smell a photo-op.

Sometimes I look for a park that is adult oriented. No kids around and a quiet place to relax. Those usually have restrictions on either size or type or age. The age is usually just so they can turn away a seriously used up unit. Other times I will seek out a Jellystone and watch the kids or take the grandkids. It all depends on what I way at the time. Yes there are restriction on trailers, Cs and tents and popups. Sometimes for safety reasons other times as a way to make it a quieter park. Not many class A units have loads of kids, though there are bunk models out there too. There is always an option nearby everywhere unless it is for safety and bears.

I had a neighbor a few years ago in the Colorado mountains that left a large bag of sunflower seeds in the trunk of her car. Guess what. No trunk and no seeds. Mr or Ms Bear had a good meal. Most National Parks have bear proof containers for food of hang it from a tree where the bears can't get to it. What is suggested it run a rope between two trees and then hang the food from that rope.
