These are not your father's popup campers! When popup campers (also called folding campers) were introduced, they were an instant hit because of their affordability, light weight, and many convenient features. They still have all those conveniences but offer so much more! There's no more cranking the roof up by hand, most models now offer power lift roof systems… or go for an extremely popular A-frame with hard sides. Many have port-a-potties and even showers with hot and cold water supplied with electric water pump (just like larger RVs). Popups are a popular choice among adventurers and manufacturers are now adding features like rooftop bike and kayak racks, and platforms for storage…some even large enough to bring ATVs or motorcycles! Better canvas, better insulation, available air conditioners and heaters (even heated mattresses!) make a popup camper as comfortable as any other camping trailer!
