Personally I wouldn't go as far to say that capitalism in general is to blame as there are a lot of very good companies out there that do build quality trailers, care about the customer and the value their product offers.I've seen my share of intense focus on profit above all else also in the software world (I've helped out with a LOT of M&A over the years). New business owners generally look at P&L statements on a daily basis and want rapid returns on their investments oftentimes at the expense of the quality, reputation, people, etc. that originally built the entity they procured. Your frustration, unfortunately, speaks to systemic issues with capitalism as a whole which doesn't regularly think "customers first". I hear ya' loud and clear.
Back to feedback about good pop-ups!
It really burns me that thor ruined livin lite, they were great campers. If I ever sell the 21BHS it will be an Oliver or a VMI for me
As far as my opinion as to the "best" pop up camper? if we are referring to conventional pop up campers with a hard roof and tent ends I've got nothing. These camper in general were built to a price point and any one of them is going to require quite a bit of upgrading if it is to survive in an off-road setting.
