We had a Star Craft and we loved it for 12 years. But that was a long time ago so you may want to do come checking on quality. The Coleman brand name pop-up is no longer made by the Coleman company of Wichita, KS but was sold to Fleetwood. There is at least one that is made by Thor, I think under the Dutchman name. Jayco used to make one, not sure if they still do. When they did it was very well thought of.

We had a Viking popup before getting the 5th wheel. It was a 97' and we had no problems with it. Had a furnace and shower--both worked fine. One trip we had 6 adults and 4 dogs sleeping in it and had a wonderful time! Wouldn't advise that on a regular basis but in a crunch!!! (by the way, other 4 adults were daughters and son-in-laws and the grandpuppies!) :)
