We went to an RV show in Pomona today. We've been wanting to get a pop-up trailer so we can take the kids camping more often. We usually camp up in the Sequioa mountains every Summer but we're kind of tired of tent camping so we are hoping to take a step-up and try something different and better. We were looking at the motor homes as well and boy are they beautiful and expensive. It's like a house on wheels. They had the big buses which are the Class A's and the Class C's are the smaller less expensive RVs (less expensive meaning in the $50,000 to $80,000 price range). For now we want to get a little cheap pop-up camper (about $10,000) that we can tow. The only problem is our minivan doesn't have that kind of towing capacity. It can only tow up to 3,500 pounds and these campers are about 3,200 (unloaded) so that would be pushing it big time. So if we want to get a pop-up camper we need to trade one of our vehicles in for a truck that can handle that kind of load. I should have taken pictures but we left the house in such a hurry that I forgot to take my camera.
