Question camper discussion

I need a little help and I new to the site joined a few days ago.
First background ... My husband and I had a coleman popup about 20 years ago around 10 years ago we gave all our camping gear away to take care of a family member (ie long term illness) we have (really mostly me) started camping again last year. Tent mostly but have rented a camper a couple of times. My husband C. Thinks it's not safe for me to camp by myself or with the grandgirls in a tent (sticky point) so I agreed to get another camper. NOW the problem "What do I get ?" I need something I can handle by myself but with enough room for him (when he comes) I've look at a couple things online like a popup again, something called a "CRICKET", or even a teardrop, maybe a motorcycle camper.....Need some advise THANKS SO MUCH

Hello KDbug, welcome to the forum. If you are looking for security I think you need hard walls. You can still get that in a pop up, or some other kind of TT (travel trailer). What do you have to pull a trailer with? That will go a long way in determining what you will be able to pull.

I have a '05 (i think maybe an '06) full size extended cab and a '93 Toyota pick up I also have a mazda '03 mini van. Just looking for simple and easy to back up with just me....I've stopped and looked at an A-shaped popup today don't know camping has changed from when we did it with the kids or maybe I'm getting old like they say.......Another question sorry had to look up the class of RVs how do you get around if you have a class c the girls like to go to Wally world and Micky D's ine time during camp or if you need something like ice (WE USE ALOT of ICE)

If you buy a Class C you should be able to tow the Toyota PU. If you go that route be sure to get an adjustable tow bar. That way you just have to get close to the RV and not exactly at the right spot.

I understand what your saying pulling a trailer a the truck is not the part that worries me it's the backing up... IDK trying to find a compromise we can both live with (I guess that the secret to a marriage lots and lots of compromise) but is easy too. I know I know my husband says I'm very picky when it comes to change (I'm not a big fan). It took him a year to get me to agree to a camper again...
