I'm developing a serious interest in the Springbar tent. I already have a utility trailer that would haul the tent, kids' bike, and tons of other crap. My tow vehicle is an $800 Volvo 740 wagon, so I don't really want to push the towing capacity to the limit (and it gives a hint about my budget. ) I would think the Springbar would be a bit less convenient than a pop-up trailer, but for the same money, I'd be looking at some fairly ugly trailers. Looks like the long-term durability would be hard to beat, too.
