Wow, that's interesting. I never thought a pop-up could include those luxuries.

It's funny... Three months ago, I was convinced that a Class A was the only way to go for me. Then I learned Class C's were generally safer to drive and were a little more space efficient than Class A's.

Now, I learn that a pop-up is also a real possibility!


The pop ups with all the luxuries cost can cost a lot of money, but cheaper than a motorhome.

From what I remember you were looking for something to full time in. Now we loved our tent-trailer but I don't think I would want to full-time in it. For one thing you wouldn't want to leave valuables in it like a TV or computer. They are extremely easy to break into.

I would be interested in the reasons why a class C would be safer to drive. What I love about our Class A is you can see so much more when you sit up high and your views are not blocked by the cab over bed. We rented a class C for a week once so I've experienced both.

As far as more room it depends on the model and what you need or want. The Class C can sleep more people in a smaller space. If you don't need to sleep the people then the Class A is going to feel more roomy because it's more open. Of course you could probably get a shorter Class C with the only bed being the one over the cab, if you don't mind climbing up and down and not having a lot of head room while you sleep.

Your best bet is to go to an RV show and see what is out there. The show's are the best because all the dealers bring all kinds of RV's to one location. Then you can experience each one and see how they feel. We go every year just to see what's new. It's a lot of fun. We have a big one in January in our area.
