The first thing you need to do before you go out and buy something, is to work out exactly what you want to do in terms of camping / glamping, and what creature comforts are a must, or just a nice to have.
Things to consider, do you want to stay only in caravan parks, or do you think you might want to go "off the grid" in it for a few days at a time?
This will determine things like how much you need to take with you, as well as what you'll need to take.
Another thing to consider, is how often you will go away.
If its only rarely, then consider hiring something, or if it's to be more frequent, then work out what you can or can't afford.
Also, having something you use rarely while it takes up space at home for the most part, can get annoying.
We've had a pop top in the past, and for our last trip around southern WA we just hired a motorhome for the couple of weeks.
Both have pro's and cons, so it's really working out what you want it for first and then deciding what suits best.
Also how long do you want to spend setting something up and pulling it down each time you stop? That could get boring if you are constantly on the move, or if you plan to stay in one location for a few days at a time, it might never be an issue.
Lots of things to consider and even the destinations you want to go to, may play a part in what you should look for.
Just my thoughts .......
