Here are a few reasons why you might want a pop-up tent camper:



Pop-up tent campers are usually less expensive. They are the first step up from camping in a tent, making them a fantastic choice for many people. Pop-up tent campers have a number of the comforts of home like a kitchen, dining area and bathroom in addition to beds and/or heaters.


The choices on those campers can be amazing. There are models that have a front deck for storing ATV’s, dirt or mountain bikes or additional coolers.  Some offer air conditioning, fans, built- in CD players, refrigerators and hanging wardrobes.  There is even a hot water outside shower available.

Sleep Accommodations

These campers can sleep a 4 to 6, or even 8 people easily.  Higher end models offer special features like outside gas grills and showers and heated mattress pads for those cold New Mexico mountain nights.

Closer to Nature

For those of you who like the rugged outdoors, in a pop-up tent camper you feel closer to nature because you are not fully enclosed in a solid RV body.  When sleeping in the tented bed area, you are basically “hanging”out in nature, so to speak!


Pop-up tent campers are lightweight and have a high ground clearance.  You can tow them easily with a smaller truck than needed for a 5th wheel or travel trailer and because of the ground clearance, you can take them to places the other classes of RVs can’t go!  If you really like roughing it – you can get there with a pop-up tent camper!

Easy to Use

Unlike a tent with all its rods and stakes, a pop-up tent camper is designed for fast and easy set up. The mechanism for expanding the tents are much simpler and quick to set up than in the past.


In many neighborhoods, you are not allowed to store a RV in your driveway or on your property.  Because of it’s small dimensions, a pop-up tent can be parked inside a garage or behind a fence and kept out of sight.

Pop up campers might not be for everyone, but they offer a very good choice for those just beginning to camp or those who want less restrictions on where they can go.  Their affordability, choices and simplicity for use and storage make them a favorite for many.
