Our very first RV was a pop up camper. We purchased a Flagstaff 625D pop up camper over 12 years ago and we owned it for two years before moving into a conventional travel trailer. The memories we made in that pop up camper were absolutely magical. Our little family of four drove it up into New England almost every summer and we also made trips to the Blue Ridge Mountains and Cape Hatteras National Seashore. New or used pop up campers makes a great first RV because they are relatively affordable and they are lightweight and easy to tow. Those that grew up tent camping often look to pop ups for their first RV purchase because they still want that open and airy feeling that they provide.
Here are 6 used pop up campers (and one budget-priced new one) that are currently listed on RV Trader that are worth taking a look at if you are in the market. Their are a wide variety of sizes and price points here–so let’s buckle up and take a look at this month’s RV Trader Monthly Round-Up!
