The first one was a conversion van. I didn't like that you once you set it up you couldn't use it. Then I got a apache royal pop up. I loved the hard sides, but the parts were expensive so I got rid of that before the problems got too bad and expensive. Then we tented for awhile. Then last year we picked a older 14' travel trailer to see how we would like it. We loved that it was open and you could leave your stuff in it and it was accessible. Unfortunately with travel trailers it developed a leak so it became a utility trailer! So compared to our other units this is nice because it's new. No surprises. Having a warranty is comforting.
