Why vertical walls?
Space! With vertical walls you maximize space for living and still using your truck as a truck. If you want storage, a bench, or a table you don't have fight the curve of other camper toppers to use the space as efficiently as possible.
Since this camper stays on the truck it is important that you can still work or haul with your truck. Having vertical walls gives you the ability to still put 4x8 sheet in the back or haul a BBQ.
Why pop up and not a wedge?
We make these campers so someone can sit up on the bed while another person is below working, cooking, or packing for the next backpacking trip. The wedge limits a lot of potential space, and makes it hard for someone to relax on the bed when someone is working below.
Why tube construction?
Building the camper with a base frame makes it easy to add insulation and wiring cleanly. It also adds hard points around the camper giving you the option to build any interior or add any jerry cans, lights, or tools on the outside.
How much room is there for bedding?
The standard cab over depth is 8" including the roof. when closed and the bed pushed back this leaves you with 4" at the front of the cab over and 6" at the rear. We can also extend this height 2" if you have some extra lofty down sleeping stuff.
Is the mattress included? We don't include a mattress, but have many ideas for you when you make a purchase. We don't include one because people have different backs which like different grades of firmness.
What if I buy a new truck will this camper fit?
Yes and no. Toyota has done a good job keeping their bed dimensions the same between generations so if you have a gen 2 and are looking at a gen 3 then odds are the same camper will fit. If a new truck is something you're considering let us know and we'll see if we can make something that will work with both models.
What do you mean by custom?
Since each camper is built out of aluminum tubing, we can easily make adjustments to sizing. If you have a long bed full size truck, or the smallest 1972 Datsun, we'll work with you to get the job done. If you're interested in a camper please ask us for a sizing form and we'll send one to you. This form has all the dimensions we will need to build your camper. When you fill out your dimension sheet tell us any accessories or other parts you want added so we have them in mind during the build.
Once you fill out the sizing sheet we will mock up your camper dimensions, and will send this back to you for you to compare to your truck and ensure a proper fit.
Is the camper easy to service/repair?
Yes! We designed this camper to be easily repaired by anyone that is handy with tools and a little know how.
Even if you're halfway around the world odds of you finding some aluminum tubing or a hinge are really high. We don't want any proprietary parts stopping you midway through your journey.
We want these to last as long as your truck does and hopefully go to the next with you!
How heavy is the camper top?
The top weighs under 350lbs with no additional add-ons.
How long will it take to get my camper?
Give us a call or drop us an email to discuss timeline. Each camper takes around 2 weeks to make depending on the specifications. Call Jay at 307.314.4456. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Is the camper water and dust tight?
Yes, we take serious steps to ensure that no water comes in from the sides or top. Each exterior piece is treated to a thick coating of sealant that is durable and water tight.
Though the camper itself is dust and water tight, dust and water infiltration can still come from the bed of your truck. There are a number of holes and gaps that come from the bed and can easily be sealed with aftermarket kits and or silicone.
Can you ship the camper?
Sure! We can organize a freight service to haul the camper to you or you can organize a private shipper to come grab it. Shipping costs are different based on location, so let me know where it's going and I can send back a quote.
Can I pick the camper up?
Yes! This way we can fit it to your bed and you can immediately test it out by camping in the surrounding national forest or on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. If you have extra time we would love to take you mountain biking and grab a beer.
