how do pop-up campers do out there?

Postby guinguin » Thu May 03, 2012 5:14 pm

I have never set up or used a pop-up camper so i was wondering if they survive the playa. seems like they might be flimsy and that wind might take them out. But then again, maybe they are sturdy...can anyone tell me their experience with pop-up campers on the playa? Thanx

Tie em down real well, is what I hear, but when done, it works.

A friend of mine who joined our camp last year had one and it worked perfectly. That being said, last year was not the most challenging of years weather wise. I think it you placed guy lines from the top of the trailer and staked them into the ground just for security you would be good to go!
