Pop-Up Campers

They’re compact on the road and much roomier at camp, which makes pop-up campers a great option for those with smaller vehicles.

Typically, pop-up campers (also known as folding campers) feature a metal frame and soft outer shell that folds down for driving and back up for camping. Inside, pop-up campers feature kitchen, dining, and sleeping space. Some models have slide-outs for additional space at camp.
