Well there really only one real pop up camper & you left it off your original list & thats the Alaskan Camper! Having owned one for a long time before my Lance I really loved that camper, liked the security of of the hard sides & the beautiful wood interiors! If I hadn't changed trucks (wouldn't fit the Dodge) & got married I would still own an Alaskan! But made the mistake of buying a Lance with all the ammenities & now the Wife is SPOILED!

Don't buy palamino ..... junk and no customer service. Tom's camperland will not honor the warranty and will even argue in the parking lot and ultimately refuse to do the work. Their work is done by unskilled laborers that will treat your property like garbage.

That’s a completely different review on Tom’s than what I have heard from many others owning Arctic Fox and Host campers purchased there.

Although I would classify Pastime as an inexpensive camper, it seems to hold up better than a Travel Lite.
