Buying a pop-up trailer. Any thoughts?

I'm a life-long tenter. Dad thought there was something wrong with RVs. Not!

Growing up out west, we could practically roll out the back door and boondock in the wilderness, with a grub box full of evaporated milk, root vegetables, flour, sugar, baking powder and a fishing pole.

Well, I didn't marry a guy like Dad. Good and Bad. More and more, when the kids and I go camping, we go to a state park and go alone, just overnight or two. Most of the times DH is along, happens to be bad weather or just tougher.

DH likes FW, but he likes it better in a vehicle. (not that he's ever done it.) I convinced him to try tenting Disney just once more, and that it would be different because he's got more camp skills under his belt than when he last came to FW, ( a lot more, just wished he thought toughing it out is fun )...and because our kids are all old enough to be a lot of help.

There doesn't seem to be a whole lot of dif between camping in a pop up versus tenting, except the lovely hard ground, and somehow, there seems to be a little extra security in wet or cold weather, in DH's mind, in a pop-up.

So I'm looking. Now seems a better time than spring. It may be a long search, we live far from sizeable population, and have no RV dealer within 150 mi.

What experience/advise do you have about pop-ups? New ones could take 6 mo to actually arrive. Any favorite online places I could learn from? Any recommendations of specific models to look out for?
(Since it's our first, and a trial run, I'm for older, bigger, simpler).

But, ideas welcome on anything pop-up, for anyone who might be searching, sometime?

Me, DH edu IT man, 19, 17, 15, 13, 10, 7.
