Default New Member with Question?

I'm pretty new to the camping world and very new to our "new" 1999 Hi Lo 21footer. My question is we are looking at a particular campground to visit and they say no "popups".

Do you know if most campgrounds consider the Hi Lo as a popup? Can you put it up before entering the campground as it then looks just like a travel trailer? I'm showing how little I know about this. But we really are enjoying and love our Hi Lo.......thanks. donm.

1) It's not a pop up. Of course some one at a campground may think it is.

2) No, you can't put the top up before driving in the campground. You would potentially do some serious damage to the top and the lift system.

My title (Texas) says it is a travel trailer. I would say "telescopic" instead of pop up would get you by.

Default Popups in campgrounds

Popops have canvas. If a campground made me raise up the HiLo at the admission gate I probably wouldn't want to camp with such "snobs." I would take my money elsewhere. I have read about some campgrounds that want the rig to be 10 yrs.or younger. We stay mostly at state campgrounds and have never had a problem with admission. Perhaps those that have traveled more extensively could comment.

because all sides are hard,not canvas, it is a travel trailer. some campgrounds do not want pop-ups because of varments (racoons,possums-bears,cougars)getting in to them and having lawsuits because of them, also party noise travels through them.

We have traveled over a hundred thousands miles with a Hi-Lo, have stayed in all kinds of camp grounds and have never had a problem, If we make reservations we list it as a travel trailer. The popup restriction is as robobd stated, that's what I have found. A Hi-Lo is not a popup.

Technically HiLo is a telescoping travel trailer.

I'm sure they allow slide outs. A Hi-Lo is just a trailer with a vertical slideout!

I would ask the campground people what they define a popup to be.
