Kiwi 18F or Coleman Pop-up? Stacey 3-29-03  
We are new to RVing and are trying to decide between a Coleman Niagra pop-up w/shower and toilet or an 18F Kiwi hybrid. I've never camped in my life and will be traveling to dog shows so we will possibly be without ready hookups. Any pros and cons you can share about your experiences with each would be greatly appreciated! Also, we have a 1996 Ford Aerostar 3.0 V6, so suggestions on best equipment we need for towing would be helpful.

I recommend the kiwi! I have a 97 coleman that I love. I'm getting ready to sell my Coleman because we want to buy a hybrid. The draw back to the coleman is having to pop it up anytime you need something out of it. Granted the Kiwi may be a little heavier to tow, but if your vehicle can tow it then it's a comfortable drive. It's nice to be able to pull over to the side of the road and make lunch or get to your destination and just walk in and not have to unpack everything!

Good Luck!

My wife and I were looking at the very same option (Kiwi vs. Colman pop-up). Actually, at first we were only looking at pop-ups because we did not know that hybrids even existed. When we first saw a Kiwi (a 17a), we loved it. Then we found an 18F and loved it more!

The bigger bathroom facilities was the real selling point for us. We bought a new one and are very pleased. Our's came with the following options: A/C, AM-FM-CD, outside shower, opt. 5 cu ft refrig., and microwave and awning. Oh yeah, and spare tire! (Can you believe that's an option!??) Anyway, go for the hybrid. A lot of people are trading in pop-ups for hybrids and I think it's the best way to go.

Just like car buying, the sticker price is a fantasy for the dealer. They will come down several thousand dollars...they did on our's.
