Who's got a camper?

I've had a regular popup camper that we sold a few years ago because we didn't use it much when my son was very little. Last year I bought a 1968 Appleby tent/trailer camper. It has been great for overnights at 4x4 club events. Who else has a camper? What do you pull it with? I have pulled the Appleby behind my Tracker, Jeep Wrangler and Mitsu Montero Sport.

I've got a co-op going with a buddy of mine. I let him borrow my grand cherokee to pull his pop-up a couple times a year, and in exchange, he lets me take the camper a few times.

Works pretty well, actually.

I have a 2000 Coachmen 22' 5th wheel that I pull with my 2000 Dodge Ram.
Use it for camping with the family

My wife and kids and I go camping multiple times a year. This year, we bought a Coleman Canyon Ranch tent. It is about 19ft x 12ft and I LOVE IT. We have thought about buying a camper instead of tent camping, but I just can't bring myself to give up the tent yet.

That tent looks pretty cool. Is the lighting battery operated or is there a plug in? How long does it take you to set it up?

Holy Guacamole!! My family and I used to camp quite a bit when I was a kid. Never could talk the wife into it. If she couldn't shower, plug in a blow dryer, curling iron, it wasn't happening. That's what I call camping in style. That Coachman sure is a beauty but do you ever pass up a gas station?
