Upgraded from a tent to a 2002 Colman Taos this year, wife was sick of sleeping on the ground.

Cool pop-ups! Better than a tent on the ground for sure!

I'm trying to consider my camping options in the next few years. I have three options. One, get a canvas tent like the Kodiak or the Springbar tent for more room and traditional look; two, get a pop -up camper; or three get a travel trailer for my Scout II to pull (can't be too big, though.

The problem with the latter two options is that I live in an apartment, and the third option would be the second best but requires that I move into the travel trailer and leave the Jeep at the RV park I would be based at. I don't know what to do right now. Suggestions?

Is there any room to store stuff while you're towing it? I'm thinking about getting something for the wrangler but it's hard with 2 kids and a big dog, and I don't want to drag the toy hauler around with the truck AND drive the jeep to wheel.

Back on topic... I saw a pretty trick pop-up jeep at Desert Safari this year, I'll dig up some picts.

Ohh... Desert Safari? I don't know what that is. I need to look it up. You have a link in case I find the wrong one?

For a weekend, bedding, food cooler, 2 plastic food bins (sitting on the picnic table in my pic above), a couple of backpacks with clothing along with a few other misc odds & ends ride in the popup. The 5 gallon water cooler, tools, rest of the cloths ride in the Jeep along with 2 kids, me and the wife. Easy up, camp chairs ride on the roof rack. If we are going for longer than a weekend and want additional coolers, food, etc. we do have more room on the roof rack but usually just bring 2 vehicles.

Here's our rig, enough for all our gear, firewood, gas, water, etc,, enough for 4 to 5 days out at a time.. The trailer empty weighs in around 400 lbs, and has a 2.000 GVW axle. We are in the process of going with lighter gear, our old cots weighed 22 lbs each, our new cots are 9 lbs.ea.. synthetic winch line,,aluminum floor, lightweight tent, etc etc... So far we have shaved off nearly 200 lbs.

Camping is with a tent or hammock or cot (not pictured), depending on mood, weather, location etc. The wife and I routinely do week-long Jeep-based camping trips away from civilization, and fortunately we also have a couple other friends who enjoy the same mix of off-pavement and other activities - hiking, photography, campfire cooking, etc - as we do.

I kind of went a different direction, not really roughing it, but still fun.

Modified a small boat trailer to haul gear off road but we are still in a tent. Air matress is quiet comfortable but a pop-up would be nice.
