Does anyone own or owned a folding camper??

We're thinking of graduating from our trigano trailer tent to probably a Pennine Pathfinder..  Just wondering if anyone had any comments on that one in particular or on folding campers in general? 
We've thought about a caravan but storage is my main concern (we can get the trigano in the back garden with minimal problems..  Yet I can't get the bammer in there due to a fence post that can't be moved and I can envisage a caravan would have the same problem...)

Maybe a bit late for an answer to this.

We owned a Conway Cruiser until the autumn and now have a Conway Clubman. Great to tow with the Galaxy. We towed the Cruiser all round Europe with our mk1 (2.3 petrol) and I thought it couldn't be bettered as a towing vehicle until we got the mk3 (2.0TDCI). Even with the much heavier Clubman (up to 1100kgs), you don't need to worry and can tow at well above the UK limit, if you want (on the motorways of France, for instance).

The best thing about a Galaxy with an FC is that you can see over the top, so don't need those useless extension mirrors. You'd probably be OK with a Pathfinder as well, though they tend to have been a bit higher than the equivalent Conway for the past few models, due to the folding mechanism. Now that Pennine make both, using the same mechanism on the same chassis, you don't have a choice.
